I'm sorry Your Grace, but that's a complexly constructed sentence.  It 
says that you feel that before we can have a principality, we have to have
a valid need for a principality.  And I think that Your Grace has said 
you believe a principality would not be appropriate without first showing
a valid need.

Yes, a lot of people have ragged on me for that one ;-).

I want to talk about principalities, not problems.  I'll say again, no 
one agrees what the problems in Atlantia are.  Many people think there 
are problems, they just can't all agree on the list.

Well, yes, I can cite a personal reason for wanting a principality.  
Thank you for thinking it's a good one.  Now can you cite a personal 
reason for opposing the principality, or the principality movement (which 
are different things, after all).
