Prior to the beginning of the war, I had posted a few blog posts, a number of which illuminated a number of global issues. Readership increased and views reached into the thousands. However, I neglected my journalistic duty as editor of the Lanisport Journal Editorial to achieve my objectives as Hand.
The position of Hand was very political in nature, and I was House Baratheon's primary high government intermediary with the coalition and head of foreign affairs. Because of how sensitive my position was, I had to stop writing editorials, delete my blog entries, and severely curtail my public activities.
Now that I am no longer government, I can return to providing my perspective on world affairs to you, my loyal readers. Although my views are often unpopular, that is no reason to hide them. Generally, forward thinking individuals shake things up too much for the establishment, but in the end history looks back upon them favorably. Hopefully the Lanisport Journal Editorial will be remembered for in depth journalism and clear ideological perspective.
