Grand Central Regional Message Board
It somewhat relates to the "What do you think" approach vs the "Thou shalt" approach. The people on the ground know their conditions, and may have ideas of what they think they want, so listening may help in deciding the action they need. On the other hand, you've ultimately got the buttons, 'parliament' doesn't answer issues without you, so the people can be your puppets. You can make them dance if you want to, they can leave their dissent behind, and if they don't dance well there's the black van line!
you cant really make them "dance", you can try but that only leads to resentment and increase in illegal activity in general. The best thing to do is remove the power of collectives to oppress individuals, including your own collective. Dont let religious (or non religious) organizations bully those they disagree with, dont let corps bully those they employ, dont let the government abuse its power (unless it is power given to it willingly by the people, in which case remove it when you get the opportunity). In general protect the the smallest and the easiest to oppress minority. The individual.
A yes, the effect on the weakest of society framework. That is a good one. Its not my goal to oppress individuals, though sometimes I may attempt to nudge them in the direction that is best for my interests for them. Though I have yielded more civil rights to step away from micromanaging, I have made them dance through propaganda filled media and education, and a large ratio have interest in enforcing it, so I don't have so much of a crime problem. Although one might note that kidnappers, robbers, and psychopaths are practically nationalized functions, and petty criminals can't compete with the government.
I mean its not real people, so I guess I wont have to annex you.
Hahaha. That's like a bus depot trying to occupy NATO. That would utterly fail and be considered an invitation to retributively quarter a penal colony on your soil that will rival your population, exploit your resources to sustain itself, and export commemorative baskets.
Once, my nation's description included the word democracy, for about 3 days. But as far as I'm aware, its still basically a dictatorship, just more benevolent, tolerant, and nominally supportive of voting. In the end, one un-elected person with self determined term limits still makes the final decisions unchecked. There are issues where control can be deferred to local government or the government can leave it alone, along the lines you're going for. But NS is too simple for simulated referendums or decisions from automated agencies, apart from fixed nominal ones pre-cooked into the issues an left for your final approval. So when the nation needs to be steered a certain way, when we let them have it their way or we think we know what's best for them, or when we simply have our ways/whims and solely control the buttons, then its up to executive decisions. Not necessarily a puppet show, but it is a slippery slope.
A massive and aggressive military is essential to my region, where it might otherwise seem psychopathic. Huge taxes the come with maintaining sovereignty, order, tithes, common needs and nationalized services are historic. While I know moderation would be better for the economy and employment incentive, there seems to be 10 needs for spending for every opportunity to cut it. Due to the massive portion of deaths due to disappearance, I assume the fleet of black vans rivals the transit system. By the way, be sure to tip your driver...
One day Telrani will be ready.
New here. What's going on
"To the people saying an AR-15 can't stand up to an F-16, no sh*t. But you're missing the point: A bomb can't go door to door and perform searches. A battleship can't patrol the streets. You need boots on the ground. And when any soldier can get popped by any citizen, at any time, it gets damn difficult to maintain an occupation."
Hello I just immigrated from KAISERREICH I hope you enjoy my company and time here :)
