Does Elaida's White Tower remind anyone of...

Recommended Posts

...Obama's Washington?  Everybody sniping at everybody else, factional strife, complete dysfunctionality?  Whenever I watch these clowns bashing each other on the  news, I can't help but think of RJ's portrayal of the White Tower under Elaida's "leadership".

Just curious...

Hahahahha it really does seem a lot like it. And to think that some people said that nobody in real life would ever act that childish. They do it in politics all the time.

No, not really, to be honest.  Leaving politics out of it, Ted Cruz and the Tea Party people that led the shutdown were mostly fairly new to Congress.  Elaida and the Red Ajah were hardly neophytes, and there was nobody as tough, smart, wise and competent as Egwene on either side of the aisle in Washington DC.

I think its reminiscent of many political and religious bodies that get lost in the power-plays and manoeuvring so that they lose sight of the big picture.

The Tea Party is Egwene and her rebel group. Elaida is Obama, Alviarin is Harry Reid, Biden is the equivalent to the third stone to the left of the door leading into the Red Ajah quarters.

Both Elaida and Obama have made mistakes as leader.  Yet a significant portion portion of Elaida's was due to influence of other people; and Obama's seems mostly himself.
