The Militarist Faction Leader
and why s\he is more important than
He is the defacto political commissar of the army.
The political commissar (also politruk Russian: политрук from политический руководитель: political officer) is the supervisory political officer responsible for the political education (ideology) of the military, and their loyalty to the government. Historically, the commissaire politique (political commissary) first appeared in the French Revolution (1789–99), guarding it against anti-Revolutionary (ideological) thought and action, and so ensuring the Republican victory. They were appointed with various jurisdictions.
Despite a French Republican origin, the political commissar usually is associated historically with the Soviet Union (1917–91), where the Russian Provisional Government of 1917 introduced them to the military forces to ensure the government’s political control. In the event, after the October Revolution, the political commissar remained in the Red Army until 1942.Experience and interpolation now indicates that the treatment of the Faction Leader (of any faction) is extremely important. By analogy to the effect on family members and if the Faction Leader is considered the "target" : the wave effect is by quintiles:
- Target \ Leader = 100%
- +++ level supporters = 80%
- ++ level supporters = 60% including possible additional plus
- + level supporters = 40% including possible additional plus
- Detractors = 20% possible additional plus
IMHO this is an important concept of the Faction Leader's position. When used in conjunction with the faction growing
tools, the player should be able to crush some factions by growing others.
For the Militarist Faction, this means that the faction leader is a very important part of Coup prevention and\or suppression even if s\he is not an army employee. Unrest among the faction spreads to the employees of the army very quickly. To keep such expensive employees, you have to try to have them aligned with the faction. Well, do you wish to try to separate the army from the faction? When the army has to go into combat, don't the weak (or detractors) faction supporters become the first "chickens" - perhaps even ahead of those who have low courage.
IMHO to have a reliable and useful army, you have to integrate it with the Militarist Faction.
