Admitting that I am not an expert on an issue does not mean I am not familiar with what is going on. And if you think you will be able to do anything in that field that is not approved by an Artaparsi and a Noctus you are naive, so my response is more than adequate as we will not be able to do very much about the situations. About the crime, it is easy to create a plan when one just like it was already suggested. In response to your comment about quick fixes: Just because something is a quick fix doesn't mean it isn't valuable. By building a circus we can appease the population as quickly as possible, and it will allow us to deal with other more pressing issues. If you notice In my initial platform I also wish to secure the spices, but neither you nor I can garuntee this, and building colosseums is out of the question because of the high cost to maintain them. Your "long term plan" is actually quite similar to mine, except yours guarantees solutions that involve variables (the spices) that are not under our control, while mine realistically uses a plan that we can implement for sure in addition to the hope that the variables can be swung in our favor.
