THE MISTRALIAN IDIOT PROBLEM

I don’t know about you all, but something I noticed when the lists of the fine participants in the Vytal Festival came out...
The first thing I noticed, along with the rest of you, was holy shit some of these “kids” were ancient. Some of these were grown ass adults that were 20+. I don’t really have a problem with that part by itself, really, it’s good that we aren’t giving a bunch of random homeless children weapons and IDs to run rampant over our country. We’re instead giving a bunch of random homeless adults weapons and IDs to run rampant over our country.
Now, now. I know what you’re thinking – ‘how do you know they’re homeless, that’s kind of rude’. And I agree! That was kind of rude, and I apologize. If I was the type of person to hit backspace, I might have even rewrote that section. But the point still remains here that a lot of these people barely have a home town and seem to have just fucking made up their life stories on the fly. There’s an absolutely disturbing number of these people who just have “Education: N/A” on their profiles.
Now I really don’t know about you guys, but the thought of deputized adults with a record of education charitably put as “Not Available” being in charge of protecting me and mine is fucking terrifying to me. That Qiu’li guy might have just been the start, apparently from some made up tribe in the boonies of Vale or something and just rolled up one day to get his degree in Murder. He graduated with honors with what he apparently did in Rochdale, I’ll tell you what, but I also think that maybe the Council had the right idea when they were talking about putting a leash on these people.
I’ll admit I was on the fence before, because let’s be real here most of us thought that this was standard fare combat school into Huntsman Academy sort of deal so we thought they had some basic training. How to work in teams, how not to commit war crimes, how to interact with a civilian without smashing their skull, how to not randomly blast your semblance when someone steps behind you and scares you, and how to not be a total dick to people. You know, basic stuff that you might want your superpowered soldier to have in their toolkit so they don’t murder you for no reason because they felt like it.
Looking through this list, though, this shit is horrifying. Take a look for yourself: havenacademy.mis/trainee_profiles
There was some wacko the other day that posted some shit about how we had an Elite problem and tried to pretend like the Revival didn’t run the country or something – but I think this has picked up on a very real and very topical problem that we do have. We have a Mistralian Idiot Problem, ladies and gentlemen. I’m not sure I trust people who apparently can’t count to ten without their scrolls to make life and death decisions, and I don’t think you should either.
Maybe instead of sending these grown ass adults, 20 years and older, out with that life and death power like in Rochdale we like… I don’t know, get them GEDs so they can function as human beings first? I don’t know when the Huntsman Academy became a daycare for the mentally handicapped, but that shit is not what I want my taxpayer dollars going towards. If the Headmaster is going to use his academy for a homeless shelter, the least he could do is make sure they can rub two brain cells together before sending them out to massacre villagers throughout the kingdom. Some of these people belong in a psych ward under restraints, and not running around the capital with weapons trying to save the day from their imaginary friends, they can’t protect anyone else like this.
They can’t even protect themselves, for that matter. Who knew that tossing a bunch of mentally unstable people who have a “Not Available” level of education, training them how to kill, and stuffing them together in large groups would result in some of them snapping? Not Headmaster Tyrian Timber, that’s for sure. Holy shit, dude. What’s really funny about that is that both Qiu’li and Ferric Nayamasa were both imported from the Vale. That shit’s the real kicker, that it’s not even Mistralian natives who are doing this it’s the imports.
They literally got a free ticket to come into our country to kill us under the sanction of the government with the admissions office knowing damn well how big a risk they were taking when they admitted these idiots. How in the world can you imagine that some 22 year olds who have been playing in the fucking mud apparently for the past two decades instead of having any work history, education history, or any record of their existence at all wasn’t sketchy as heck number one and number two decide that they would be great material to be deputized into soldiers against the Grimm.
I don’t know what the obsession is with governments and trying this every few years but using the mentally handicapped as soldiers is both cruel and doesn’t work. Studies such as the Mistral University one here (Click) and the Atlesian Technical Institute one here (Click) clearly show that the performance of those soldiers when experimented with in both the Great War and the Faunus War was fucking pathetic. If you’re out here eating glue and can barely put pants on, how the hell can you be expected to make split second decisions under pressure when lives are on the line? I don’t want a 3IQ foreigner from “the forests of the Vale” with an education of “N/A” with a weapon period, let alone with a weapon and authority to kill people with impunity. If these people aren’t smart enough to get a GED in 22 years, I don’t think they should be given a gun and allowed to run around with it. Nothing against them personally, I’m sure they’re very fine people individually, but I’m also not trusting them with my dishes let alone my life.
Didn’t work out well with Qiu’li or Ferric, and it will continue to happen until Haven stops playing with fire and decides to end the cruelty of using these mentally handicapped people to fight as soldiers on the front line against the Grimm. It’s cruel and unusual, and this hasn’t really been addressed by anyone yet – probably because this information was private up until earlier today. The few decent ones that we imported from regions unknown doesn’t make up for the fact that we’re up to 2 imported murderers from the Vale that somehow got admitted into our Huntsman Academy.
Who’s the next foreigner who’s gonna snap and lose their shit? I got my bet on Vacuo next, I hear those people are fucking wild. Maybe Vale will make a hat trick, though, but I got to think we couldn’t have imported that many people from the Vale in the first place – right? It’s not like we have a whole fucking army of them or anything, I hope. I don’t think it’s fucking controversial to have these people pass a basic fucking background check and require a high school diploma for this shit, and that would have weeded out both of those dipshits before they ever got into the position to do anything but get their asses beat into the bottom of some gutter in the Vale.
Like, the fact that there are apparently zero qualifications for this shit is just mind blowing to me. You need to show an educational record to get employed in a fast food place but don’t need to have one to get admitted to Haven Academy? What kind of shit is this? Instead of looking up at the imaginary threat of the Monarchists, look below you at the crazy hobos on the street corners and behold your next generation of Huntsmen – taken from the deranged and mentally handicapped and given weapons and license to kill in the name of Mistral because we as a society have decided that we are indeed that fucking desperate to beef up our numbers. I somehow feel like this should be getting more attention here soon.
