If you were to somehow immediately made prime minister, or president, or otherwise named, who/what would you be?

In my childhood, when i was meek and mild, i would be sby like Winston Churchill or Abraham Lincoln.

Nowadays, i'd more likely to be a harsh & somewhat cruel dictator, perhaps sby along the lines of Kim Jong Un. As i am a bit of a "madman" concerning dealings with people!

Like Ophelia in Pans Labyrinth I would like to be someone who ruled with justice and a kind heart for many centuries, and was loved by her people.

I like to think I'd be something like Theodin King, from LOTR. Just, wise...But cross me or my law abiding subjects and I would show you no mercy. I love the 'head on a spike' outside the kingdom gates..


If I had a choice of who I could be... it'd be Arthas the Lich King without a doubt.

But in reality I'd probably turn out like Rodrigo Duterte. The Philippines President 'The Punisher'.

I'd like to be someone steady and progressive, but I'd probably end up being Neville Chamberlain instead. :(

^This.

Sadly most leaders/presidents/prime ministers are uncompassionate bullies imo.
That's how they have risen to the top of the ladder. Win at all costs.
