We're looking at the leaders of Ancient China. The chancellors met with groups of people in various provinces. They had to determine who was most fit to rule China.
All three groups won at different times of the day - which was nice, because it is also true of China.
The emperor met with the chancellors, and listened to their advice. I was impressed with the maturity showed by these leaders. They asked valid questions and generally took the advice of their chancellors. There was one case where 3 chancellors voted one way, while 2 voted another way - and the emperor went with the minority. When he was questioned about this, he said it was because his most trusted chancellor was in the minority. Great answer, man. Great answer.
