Philosophy 115 Regional Message Board
I've voted against the commendation. (My WA nation is not in the region.) I automatically vote against commendations where all the nominee's achievements have to do with WA resolutions. The practice of the WA elite trading commendations back and forth seems inherently corrupt and incestuous to me.
i guess i don't have a realistic answer to this. or maybe any kind of answer.
i personally do not believe that government should 'order our lives'. i expect the government to take the role as a teacher. if people wants safety from crimes such as terrorism, spying us and monitoring every inch of our movements, ie using surveillance, is not justifiable. the government can prevent the idea of terrorism to develop in its people's mind in the first place, through education. the government should teach its people how to foster a healthy kind of freedom, the one that liberates their mind and at the same time doesn't harm others.
what makes it unrealistic is that not everyone will respond the same way to education. people have their own minds. if they depend too much on education to ensure safety, it could lead to indoctrination, which i don't think is good. and i did not consider the possibility (or fact) that there are individuals who are not capable of conscience and remorse, and who gains pleasure from killing people and blowing up buildings.
and, can i know your answer to your own question?
My WA nation isn't in this region either, but I didn't support the commendation for exactly this reason.

Welcome to P115, The United Falkland Republic!
RIP, Ninjago Country.
We're developing a much higher CTE rate than we've usually had, with newbie coming in, forgetting to log back in or giving up or being preoccupied IRL. That's a characteristic of larger regions; I hope we can maintain the influx of new nations to balance (or more!) the leaving of these newish nations!
How can they say that our citizens are not among the happiest in the world? Surely the megadoses of the mood-altering drugs that are the basis of our therapies are sufficient to banish any negative emotions! Well, I guess a few more mg's wouldn't hurt...
I thought you were already well in excess of the maximum safe dosage; perhaps that's why we've had 5 nations CTE on us in the last three days or so....
Generally, I consider the government that governs the least possible while still detering domestic and foreign attacks. Logging in our best best and brightest to take care of the problems seems to me to be the best solution to intercepting terrorist attacks being planned or initiated. The current practice of logging every movement or transaction of every citizen seems to me to be excessive overkill. With so many data points to connect, connecting the dots seems virtually impossible. Limiting the data collection to targeted known or suspected criminals seems much more effective that doing it for everyone. It seems to me that tax dollars are best spent on educating the young, addressing the needs of the sick and disabled, and protecting all of us from foreign and domestic enemies should be the core of the governmental interests.
There are muffins and mimosas on the porch of the embassy, should anyone want some. Also hugs.
I guess my primitive people in Fifth Jerusalem enjoy being told to be happy.
