    What country has true self-rule these days? North Korea, maybe? We live in an age where sovereignty is given up in order to achieve things like economic cooperation, peace, etc.

    Then I see no grounds on which they can complain. You can't choose to fight the other side to the death and then complain when they also fight you to the death.

    Yup. Better us than them. Shocking that I don't want my entire people destroyed.

    How can someone be worth 9 if a team out there is willing to pay 15? Doesn't the idea of a market suggest that a player's value is set by how much someone is willing to pay them?
