It's a need for some, if not many. But I agree, so far I was never unhappy with my non existing spirituality.
There are some things that are kinda attractive about gods and all the stories behind them. But to take it serious I would have a believe in it as a non man-made thing.
Which I can not.

well ofc spirituality is an attractive yet ridiculous option when it comes to finding explanation to the inexplicable, but just out of interest where did you get that statement from
Was there a serious study that suggests spirituality is a basic human need?

It's just a constant during human history. And it is still attractive when there is a complex and very thorough scientific explaination available that makes many religous explainations look bad.

I didn't engage this topic on a very educated level though. So if you bring some good arguments that discard it as a human need, I'm all ears. But it existed in some form during all ages and in all cultures.

But that is not what started, what is now the EU. That was the European Coal and Steel Community founded in 1951 by France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Luxembourg and The Netherlands but not the UK. The UK joined only in 1973 when France finally stopped being a dick and allowed them to join.

Spot on regarding Sansa. I think pretty much the same. The last scene with Ramsay Bolton is just one more confirmation of how she is more like cercei: indiferent to suffering of people she doesn't like.
As for being unaffected by her walk of shame, how is blowing up the fucking sept and everybody in it for a reaction? She is very good at not showing her emotions, and acting like nothing is going on, but she has made sure that wildfire has been stacked for quite some time. I do agree that there is no sign she just lost her last child, but for the sake of making her as menacing as possible during the coronation ceremony, the build-up couldn't really have her sobbing. I expect that to be handled so much better in the books, where pacing is much more maleable.

I think Jamie has also gone through very interesting arc. Early seasons portray him as a touch arrogant, and malicious, but his wish to be seen as a good person drives him to change. Considering why he murdered whatsisface Targaryen, it'l be interesting to see how he now interacts with Cercei. Ignoring the poor conveyance of time, the last episode's talk with Walder Frey, and, during the coronation ceremony , the zoom on his face, was actually pretty well done, and the show not fucking up.

Daenerys consistently does shit that would have gotten any other character killed. She's like the guy you play poker with, that goes all-in, on every hand. Once somebody actually tries to call her out on it, she consistently sits there with 5 aces on her hand, so the enemy loses. Every other character that naively tries to change the world for the better thends to end up dead, but daenerys keeps getting "lol, saved by retainers" "lol, saved by dragons", "lol, saved by contrived writing that puts power in my hands all the time"
I think cercei is the better female character. Her power is mostly her own doing. I like to draw parallels between her path from mother to monster, to anakin skywalker's path to the dark side, sans the emperor whispering in her ear, where hate consumes her and drives her to commit mass murder.

Well yeah but that's because of the source material. Contrary to what a lot of people say there are 5 characters that will never (permanently) die because of plot reasons.
Does characters are: Bran, Arya, Sansa, Tyrion and Daenerys.

These characters are the clear main characters of the series and go most clearly through a character arc. You won't see any of them die, atleast until the end.

And all you say is true for Daenerys to some extent, I would like to point out a few things that she does get wrong.

First off: All of the politics in Slaver's bay. She completely fucks up the region. She did this with great intentions but it quickly went t o shit. Especially in Yunkai and Astapor, which quickly returned to being slave cities after she left. But also in Meereen, see the Sons of the Harpy.

Second off: A lot of the people around her get killed because of descisions she made. Baristan, lots of unsullied, the child eaten by Drogon, the 500 children on the posts hung up there by the Wise Masters. They don't show it much in the show because of time constraints, but these are deaths that consume her and for which she blames herself. It's sad that there's so little time to develop this more.

So yeah, she does have problems but in the grand scheme of things she and haer dragons are safe.

As for Cercei being the better female character: I don't know if I agree with that. Cercei has done a lot of shit that should have come to bite her in the ass. This eventually happenend with the walk of attonement but after that she seemed strangely fine. Blowing up The Great Sept of Baelor is so extreme and she succeeded so easily, that I thought it was very very lame until Tommen threw himself out the window. Losing her last son because of her actions is the most poetic justice I have yet seen on the show. Disappointingly though, she seemd almost completely unfased by it after seeing his (probably mangled) body. She just went: LOL guess I'm going to become queen now!

My favorite female character in the show is probably Sansa. She was such a winy naive brat in the first two seasons. She is aprtially responsible for her father's death by telling Cercei of Eddard's plans. And yet, in the last four/three seasons, you see her getting better at manipulating herself. Learning from Littlefinger but also from her time in the Red Keep. This is most evident in th Eyrie but you keep seeing it later on. Sansa is gaining the same skills as Cercei, she's becoming more and more like her mother. These skills are extremely usefull for a noble woman at court. I have no doubt we'll see even more of her next year.

A major differance about kings and warlords is as follows. Warlords continue to terroize local populace; where as a king even starting out as a warlord would rather govern the local populace.

You're picking apart two definitions that have an incredibly diverse pool of individuals. Many feudal lords tortured and brutalized their people and there are warlords that nobly protect theirs.

Well I'm pretty sure some of the current 'warlords' in Afghanistan are basically governing their area and not simply terrorizing the people. They're the only authority left in some parts of the country.
