Democratic Socialist Assembly Regional Message Board
Are you saying you're voting for because everyone else is? That's only a requirement if you're me.
Yes, if you decide to utilize a loop hole, you can correct a major flaw in the resolution. But that seems like a reason why it should be rewritten- so that this highly abuseable loophole stops existing. Because while it is present, sure you can use it by collaborating with another nation to ban burial practices that are dangerously unsanitary like the ancient tradition of throwing corpses in to rivers. But that same loop hole can be used to circumvent the very intent of the proposal in which some less enlightened nation enters into a treaty mandating the forced relocation/education of children of indigenous tribes.
And if this is voted into law as a resolution, there would be nothing the WA could do about that loophole until a repeal is placed thereby enshrining the rights of oppressive and racist nations to be oppressive and racist.
Within the context of a WA resolution, why wouldn't we mean WA law?
Well the author threw that out the window for no discernable reason other than he thought it sounded better. Damn the consequences.
I don't think the region is specifically pro-communism but it certainly isn't anti-communism and we surely have a few dyed in the wool communists here?
I roleplay my nationstate to be a liberal western style democracy, in a Scandinavian social democratic mould, with plenty of communist symbolism due it being formerly a single party communist state in its fictional history*. That Scandinavian social democratic mould effectively matches off to my personal views. Except that there are rarely politicians who would match my views on personal morality and freedoms which are very liberal in freeing people from control by anyone but particular big business and big government. I find the post 9/11 rush to surrender hard won civil liberties in the name of security to be deeply concerning.
But even that sort of stuff is hard to compare from country to country. Guns being an example. In no way whatsoever do I see allowing people to walk around with guns or own guns as being a personal freedoms issue and like any other European liberal, I fully support strong regulation of guns, and rather than seeing it as restricting the right of one person to own a gun, I see it as supporting the right of the other person not to be shot.
Economically I am somewhat pro-market and strongly pro-business especially relating to small and medium businesses, but I am deeply sceptical of the view held by laissez faire capitalists that the market is always right. There's far too much corruption for that. But then there's too much corruption and bureaucracy on the government's side too, and I naturally distrust all politicians ever. There's something off about a group of people who want to go around telling other people what they can and can't do.
Yeah I know what you're saying and that loophole you are referring to is there but we can't use some RP agreement between a handful as players of being an international law. AFAIC, given there is no WA resolution against murder, therefore there is no international law against murder.
Btw, I starred the bit about fictional history in my last post. I meant to add a footnote that I really need to get around to writing my national factbook setting all that down.
Yeah, this is subject to the same problems that I have with the Outer Space Treaty and the general state of international law. International law generally runs on the assumption that smaller stuff will be handled by individual nations. Due to this, there is all sorts of activities which you can do when national law no longer applies and you have to deal with the hole-ridden mess that is international law.
In the real world, there are many areas, from endangered species protection to bank fraud, that international law does not cover due to the base assumption that most areas will be covered by the nations and that the lack of pernament residence in international waters and outer space is currently difficult. As technology advances and makes permanent residence in those spaces where only international law applies becomes more plausible, we might see a paradigm shift in how international law operates.
I've looked into the GA, and I don't remember seeing any bans on battery, ritual sacrifice sapient life, or burglary. The inability of a centralized government to disallow those activities among indigenous peoples seems like a major flaw.
I'm currently your standard social liberal, who is extremely far left when it comes to social issues, but centrist-left in economics. (some hard-line socialists don't like me because of my belief that a pure communist/socialist economy will never work; I'll talk about this if anyone wants)
It seems to have CTEd 41 days ago, which I think would have been during Upright Worker's absence as Sec-Gen? I refounded it when I saw it was CTEd, but evidently I forgot to move it back to the DSA.
We've been exiled. -.-
