"There's one hard lesson every leader needs to know. To recognize the situation has changed, you're no longer the right person for the job, and it's time to give up power." -- the mayor[*] of planet Jean, in Freefall by Mark Stanley, 2017-06-30

[Come to think of it, if you substitute certain other groups for robots in her previous statement, it sounds like it applies to som present-day, real-world politicians: "I didn't see robots as people. I'm still having a hard time with it. That's a fatal flaw in someone who's supposed to represent them."]

[*] Her name has never neen given in the comic; she has only ever been referred to by her title.
