    Which is better?

    Situations (Examples):
    For the University to stack their Research bonus with Knowledge, which will piss off the Spartans, or to have a Spartan Alliance by choosing the Power value?
    For the Spartans to stack their Morale bonus with Power, which will piss off the University, or to have a University Alliance by choosing the Knowledge value?

    For the Morgans to stack their Econ bonus with Free Market, which will piss off the Gaians, or to have a Gaian friendship by choosing Green Economics?

    For the Peackeeping Forces to efficiently knock off their inefficiency going after growth, which will piss off the Believers, or to have an Alliance with the Believers by choosing Fundamentalist Politics?
    For the Believers to stack their probe bonus, which will piss off the peacekeepers, or to have a Peacekeeping Forces Alliance by choosing Democratic Politics?

    There is actually a personal advantage for the Hive to consider with Police State, given no inefficiency minus, or they can choose Fundamentalist Politics. This would be the hardest choice to make!

    In thinking about it, unless there is an advantage to be gained by going after your own agenda (like the Hive), its probably better to choose the Foreign Policy pick over one's own Agenda? Is this correct? What are the exceptions, assuming the Faction is a force to be reckoned with?
