Don't you think they should have just put a nonbender on the council of Republic City so the stupid revolution would never have started anyway? With the voice of a nonbender, the revolution may never have existed! THAT is just plain stupidity. Now, there should be SIX council members: Air, Southern Water, Nothern Water, Earth, and Non Bender. Huh? All those stinkin' idiots forgot to put a non bender on the council! You may be thinking, "Sokka was a council member, he couldn't bend." HOWEVER, look at the council TODAY. They lost the Southern Water member, and, oh look! NO NON BENDERS! If they want to prevent ANOTHER revolution, which I'm sure will happen in the next few millenia, they gotta make it law that a non bender must ALWAYS be on the council!
