The Internationale Regional Message Board
I visited the page and here is the page that the flag came from, I like it
The idea of automation used to fill philosophers with great joy, thinking that the various dull toils of humanity would forever be banished. But under capitalism, as workers we look at increasing automation with terror; the prospect of our jobs becoming irrelevant means even the most adept workers are on a tenuous tightrope between living a decent life and intense, inescapable poverty. Various capitalist thinkers have even acknowledged this, pushing forward ideas like a universal basic income to assuage this, but like welfare programs, these reforms all seek only to try to fix symptoms rather than the disease itself. The only real solution is for these increasingly automated industries be put under workers' control and for society as a whole to then reap the benefits of their production.
There's no way to accurately say what a far advanced intelligence would think to do with humanity; it would be beyond our comprehension. I do believe however, that intelligent sentient robots/androids/whatever will deserve civil rights similar to what we afford to ourselves should they come to exist. Along this same line of thought, I believe stronger rights for animals besides humans are needed as well.
I look forward to gladly welcoming our future robot overlords.
1.) About sharing founder access of TI. NO! For obvious game mechanical and rules related reasons which have nothing to do with real life political orientations or models of governing, organizing collective administration of The Collective representing persons via their nations. It's ridiculous thing accuse anybody in this game being "authoritarian" if keeping founder access out of reach of all kind risks related to sharing puppets. Founder puppet of TI is what makes whole community easier to run, without needs to fear anything too damaging to happen to The region. No chain of political-philosophical argumentation can change the facts, rules and game-mechanics related to Executive founders and WADs.
We've already seen what can happen with shared founder accounts. Founder puppet shouldn't be used to make any comments anywhere and only making minimal actions generally, and only if/when absolutely necessarily needed. WAD's endorsement cap should be now about 15-20 endorsements max (limit that should be actively enforced by the Founder and Democratically elected WA delegate, and keep WFE Back up'd just for worst case scenario.
2.) Decentrailization of responsibilities YES! For what tasks and by whom and where Can be decided via normal open, collective process of decision making.
It is dangerous start Mixing reality set by game-mechanics and rules, and ideal model of governance (which can vary a much), as in every circumstances imaginable game-mechanical reality comes first and sets the basis of all above that, not visa versa.
The Founder Misley's responsibility is NOT TO SHARE Founder access for security of The Internationale. It is not ideological question, it is purely practical one.
(Yes. I know what can happen when idea world override the realities in these things. Over 2000 times as a 'democratically' elected WAD (by highest number of Endorsements) I have sort of understanding how these things goes. I also lost old The Red Fleet among many other regions due shared founder access with Comrade Lapasionaria. Lessons of History should be realized and put to the practice without any kind complaining about these things via ideological googles.)
I definitely agree, P. I was mistaken in thinking that it was an issue, so no one is accusing me (that I'm aware of) of being an authoritarian for not sharing access to the founder nation, but it is worth saying why the decision was made. I have no plans to ever share access to "Illa Passiflora" - again, not an ideological question, just a matter of keeping this region secure by game mechanics.
Also, other issue. 4th International would want formally request embassy (again) for establishing such with The Internationale. 4I was merged integral part of old TI and founding communal member of TI (with it's sister region Syndicated Red Black Tendencies). Embassy request will be sent only if consensus is reached and decision made for it. It isn't too important question for me as 4I directs openly people to search comrades from The Internationale. Splitting forces of trotskyist tendencies is notorious sad fact of real life 4 Internationals and I have no will or intentions follow that line in this game myself, as that would be directly against teachings and historical lessons granted by actions and writings of L.Trotsky.
My personal R/D affilitiation as a purist raider doesn't inflict in these matters and my presence here (along with many other Leftist regions, I have something to do with) is purely defensive. TI was my home and no matter how I may raid all around out there, that fact isn't changed. There are no internal contradictions or conflict of interest in my mind in this matter. I stand for The Internationale until the day I CTE.
Cimmerian Raider Mercs act also as a body guards of Karl Marx and Leon Trotsky. Fourth International is secured as well, totally regardless I'm de facto 'Secretary' and un-officially high ranking member of The Black Riders.
P. a.k.a. Cora
Feel free to send the request - as the only reason embassies were ever canceled between TI and 4th International was the refound of TI, consensus is maintained from the original merger to have embassies. There is no need to again hold a vote because the consensus has never been challenged.
Glad that's over, now everyone can go back to respectfully discussing how big a bastard Stalin either was or wasn't. :P
There are always room for Anarchist in this region. Once founded by One, the best among the Comrades.
