advice for our next VP External

Some advice to the next VP External Affairs. As a student society, we are pretty unique in that we elect the expert, rather than hire them, but they still have to do all of the things that are in this video. Noticeably absent from the video? Filing complaints to the United Nations. Actually, anything to do with the United Nations, or the generally ineffective realm of protest politics and end-goal lobbying. Incrementalism and next-step lobbying can be excruciating, but, as Max Weber said,

Politics is a strong and slow boring of hard boards.

Well, what he actually said was in German, but you get the picture.

Also, if you haven’t read this link on the Anti-Impeachment group, and you’re looking for a laugh, check it out. Apparently, there is nothing worse than the Fall of the Berlin Wall! I’ve written something up about this (because my honour has been insulted and I demand satisfaction!) but haven’t decided whether or not to post it yet. If I do, it’ll be up sometime tomorrow.
