The Revolutionary Catholic State of Crusaderville wrote:I don't really think the civil rights rating is just increased through liberal options, i mainly look at the civil rights option being freedoms, a nation with freighting civil rights would basically have no laws and would be a form of anarchy.

The key word was "sometimes." For instance, laws against corporal punishment sometimes increase Civil Rights even though they shouldn't. A Civil Rights rating of 100 should be given to nations that have no laws regulating personal (non-economic, non-political) conduct whatsoever.

I agree with you in principle. Fewer laws should mean higher Civil Rights.

Yes i agree, sometimes political options decrease civil rights, which IRL they would, but why have a whole political freedoms option if a political issue doesnt decrease political freedom but decreases civil.

Also when my nation was first founded it had a horrible environment just because i chose Strongly Agree on the corporation option.

That is just plain old wrong.

The Augustin Paradise of The Landlocked Isles wrote: I would imagine that most NSers are in favor of abortion, but you would be hard-pressed to find any that were truly in favor of murder. After all, it is far easier to argue in support of women's rights.

I once heard a speaker talk along the lines of this. To paraphrase: Abortionist are not anti-life because they like living; on the other hand those who are against abortion are not anti-choice because they believe in the choice to participate in the actions that leads to this point. This choice is called free-will.

I just received the issue with the Animal Liberators and the chicken snack packs, which is a good example of this problem. The options are:

1. Stop people from protesting, and allow people to continue eating chicken.
2. Ban animal abuse, and allow people to eat only cruelty-free chicken.
3. Free all animals, and ban all meat.
4. Tax meat to stop people from buying it.

I picked #1, trying to drop my Political Freedom, but my Civil Rights dropped instead while my Political Freedom saw no change. It seems like #1 should increase Civil and Economic but decrease Political, #2 should decrease Economic, #3 should decrease Civil and Economic, and #4 should decrease Civil. Clearly, the editors disagree.

4 does decrease civil.
Outlawing protesting could be considered a civil right too though.

You could report the issue in the "Got Issues?" forum.

Right now, nominations are open in Pro-Life International (PLI) for First Secretary and Second Secretary.

http://w11.zetaboards.com/NS_Right_to_Life/topic/11727547/1/

I just want to remind everybody that this multiregional alliance still exists. Anybody who is a member of a PLI region is eligible to run. Each region will get one vote, cast by its representative.

Here are the current secretaries and representatives:

First Secretary -- Aawia (Right to Life)
Second Secretary -- Frustrated Franciscans (Catholic)

Catholic -- Frustrated Franciscans
Coalition of Catholic States -- Wagafraga
International Republican Union -- vacant
League of Christian Nations -- The United Pacific Territories
Right to Life -- United Massachusetts
The League of Conservative Nations -- vacant

To appoint a new representative, all your region has to do is send somebody over to the PLI forums.

http://w11.zetaboards.com/NS_Right_to_Life/forum/3862279/

Ideally, the new secretaries will work with the Diplomatic Assembly to organize another pro-life conference before the end of the year. Our last conference was held on August 4-11, 2013. There were 28 participants and 425 posts (or 61 posts per day). It was hosted on the regional forums of Right to Life.

The Augustin Paradise of The Landlocked Isles wrote:Congratulations. I remember how messy that was, so it is good to have that last reminder gone. Will you continue to use Railana as before?

Yes, at least for now.

The French masonic state aborts 200,000 children each year. Should Catholics accept it's "protection" from it's jihadi nutcases?
Or is that a betrayal of the unborn?
