"The underlying causes of Varian Wrynn's anger are all unconditionally justified."There is a crucial semantic distinction between something being 'justified' and something being 'right'. King Wrynn may be justified in his anger, but that doesn't mean his anger is RIGHT. Suppose you decide to ride your bike to the grocery store. On the way there you are hit by a car. After a long, painful recovery you find yourself scared of bicycles, bike lanes, open roads, cars, grocery stores, etc. and etc. That life-altering agoraphobia might be JUSTIFIED, in the sense that it can be shown to have understandable root causes and so is different from one caused by paranoia due to chemical imbalances in the brain.But that doesn't mean that letting the resulting agoraphobia ruin your life is the RIGHT response.I haven't seen any indication that King Emo & Unbalanced is acting out of anything other than his (justifiable) anger. He can be angry. But letting his anger control his decisions isn't justifiable, even if his anger is understandable.

Exactly.Especially when he's supposed to be 'King'. There are reasons people are made leaders, usually that they are in a better position to lead their people than their subjects.I'm not saying that the Horde is always without fault, and I may well be a 'horde apologist', but stop apologizing for Wrynn. His anger may be justified, but if he does something stupid because of anger, that's not the mark of a good leader, and he WILL have to answer for it.

actually as i've pointed out in another post the main reason people in reality were feudal kings was because they kicked ass and didnt take any shit.
