It seems to me, off hand, that His Grace and Your Excellency have jumped
to the conclusion that there is nothing substantive to be added to the
debate, before the debate has begun. I can't promise that we will be
talking about anything new, except my proposal for three principalities,
but then I'm not the only person involved in this debate. I certainly
hope we don't get vociferous again, and I am certainly trying to avoid
raising the heat in this discussion, but it does not mean I intend to stop.
As you point out, the principalities issue has been raised roughly every
two years, yet Atlantia has no principalities. So obviously, if we want
to establish principalities, we have to debate the issue more often then
once every two years.
