Excuse me? I'm going to call them Desert Mormons because that's what they are. You can call them whatever you want. And as far as your point about life experience.....that's absolutely true. GRRM is lazy AF and perhaps some military service would give him the ambition to actually finish his novels. That being stated, even without military service, he did a pretty damn good job crafting his world. Matter of fact, his story has the potential to be better than LOTR, provided he ever completes it.Stop trying to be clever, call them sandniggers like everyone else. And yeah, actual life experience tends to produce better writers. Tolkien served in WWI and was at the Battle of the Somme, probably the most pointless battle in an extraordinarily stupid war. He went on to write the defining work of what's called high fantasy.
