I’m not sure if this happens to everyone, but when some of us play chess, we sometimes tend to discuss world politics or social upheaval. The nature of the game lends itself down these paths due to its warlike design and as what lies within a military structure, you will find it has a few similarities to society as a whole. The military abides by its own rules and laws just as society would. They have a top General, we have our President. Military prisons house the mis-behavers while we have plenty of civilian prisons. There are even passive openings and more aggressive openings, to suit ones playing style and which often can be reflected in different styles that crop up in real war situations. Of course, us chess players are only human and we will occasionally talk about normal things like who is the best guitarist or which car last the longest. This is Jimio saying *Chess for Fun* *Chess for Relaxation* and *Chess to Test your War Aptitude*
