Its like a "tiger economy" such as Malaysia where everyone helps to achieve a goal so no is the answer

well memebers of the fire caste are trained from birth to fight so he'll be better at fighting than politics. same thing with the water caste, so no fire warrior will be better at politics than the water caste. its a form of utopian communism, very nice on paper, would never work in the real world.

It's what caste they are in that determines what they do. *if there needs to be a politician, the ethereal will go find a water caste member. *if he needs an engineer, he'll go find an earth caste member. *if he needs a pilot, he'll go find an air caste member. *and if he needs a warrior, he'll go find a fire caste member. *tau in these castes have basically been bread to do what they do, since before the ethereals united the tau race. *
tau are born in their caste and they find their niche. *period. *it's basically socialism and'or communism that works. *you wouldn't even want to be a different caste because that wouldn't be for the greater good.

on a personal note, that's kinda a reason that fire warrior is far feched because a fire-warrior a) a fire-warrior wouldn't know how to take apart a melta and b) he couldn't fix it if he did. *

I would assume that there would be propaganda to increase morale in the tau from day to day. Like films with etherals in it, saying speeches and stuff, or pics of the tau fighting the poor, ignorant enemies, that sort of thing.

I actually read someone's take on propaganda towards gue'vesa a while back. It was on this site.

Firstly, the Castes:

Castes have been bred to fill a specific purpose. Shas are bred for war, Fio are bred for labour, Kor have adapted for zero-gravity environments, and Por fill the roll of middle-men, diplomats and intermediaries.

Selective breeding ensures that each Caste is naturally gifted at the role they have to fill. However, even if, for example, a Shas had a talent for diplomacy, they would remain a Shas.

How they got their allies is unclear... but I'd guess it was through lies, deceipt, blackmail and dirty play that would make the Mafia look nice. Tau are only friendly so long as you do exactly what they tell you to...
