Okal Rel science fiction books - politics are dishonorable

Writer-daughter Jennifer Lott's 2013 Xmas gift to Lynda Williams was an Okal Rel quote of the day stack for 2014, featuring intriguing snapshots of the ORU adventure from all titles in the series: Saga, Legacies and online.

From saga novel Righteous Anger by Lynda Williams.

"Politics, Horth, is about what people want. So is Sword Law, but with this difference. In politics, people do not always proclaim the stake they fight over. And they may not be straightforward about how they get it, either." Hangst paused a moment, studying his son's face for signs of comprehension. "Do you understand?" he asked.

Horth nodded.

"Gods, child!" Hangst exclaimed in frustration. "Say something to prove it to me, will you!"

"Politics," said Horth, very carefully, "are dishonorable."

Commentary

In this father and son moment, Hangst helps to lay the bedrock values Horth later applies against his father when their world gets political.
