Federated Communes of Folkvangr: VETO
Assembly for a Socialist International: ABSTAIN
Federation of Anarchist Communes: FOR
Checking out the resources page on the Federated Communes of Folkvangr, the region seems fine (other than that market anarchist link), and they point out that their conception of paganism excludes racism. All of this is undermined though because they're building embassies with the "Anti-Authoritarian" Alliance, who has attacked leftist regions and affiliates with far right anti-communists, not to mention the acceptance of "anarcho"-capitalists and right-"libertarians" in their own region.
If I remember correctly, we broke embassies with Anarchy, a region we had a long history of friendship with, because of their embassies with the "Anti-Authoritarian" Alliance. With this in mind, I believe embassies with this region should be denied. I accept that they may simply be ignorant of the reactionary nature of the "Anti-Authoritarian" Alliance, so if they end up getting rid of that embassy in the future I'd be happy to support their region.
"Working class areas mainly Yes with middle class areas more mixed, say canvassers"
This was before the marriage equality referendum, now that it is done and counted, this is confirmed to be the case. The most solidly working class constituencies vote yes in the region of 80-90%, while the "leafy suburbs" of the middle classes voted at "only" ~70%. Even in the countryside, a thinner majority still voted yes, with the exception of the constituency that my mother's where a small majority voted no :P
Here's a post I made when there was a proposal to build embassies with Anarchy that discusses what happened with them: page=rmb/postid=9017009
In short, for those who don't care to click the link or read what it has to say, it had nothing to do with AAA but in the wake of our breaking ties they did buddy up with AAA and Laissez Faireholm (and TCB).
Thanks for correcting me there comrade. That's pretty bad that they went so far to have embassies with Laissez Faireholm. I'm not sure what they were thinking with an embassy with The Communist Bloc either.
Still, I hold my veto on embassies with Federated Communes of Folkvangr unless they drop embassies with the "Anti-Authoritarian" Alliance.
Thank you very much!
Iconoclastic tendencies aside for a moment, have your vote in our poll of influential anarchists in the Federation of Anarchist Communes.
Comrades, I have seen the latest legislation from the world assembly regarding gun legalization. I would like to know what the general consensus is regarding gun control in our fine region.
I take a centrist position on gun control. I'm no fan of the NRA, and I think that in order to own and operate a firearm, you have to demonstrate that you can use it responsibly. This is especially true for high-powered and automatic weapons. On the other hand, I think outright banning of all firearms in certain areas (such as big cities) is ridiculous and will only help criminals.
Vote count - Embassies
Federated Communes of Folkvangr: 1 FOR 8 ABSTAIN 1 VETO
Assembly for a Socialist International: 3 FOR 5 ABSTAIN 2 VETO
Federation of Anarchist Communes: 5 FOR 4 ABSTAIN
Votes have been summed up. Only FAC has been accepted.
It looks like my words or others made a difference in The Federated Communes of Folkvangr, as they broke embassies with the "Anti-Authoritarian" Alliance. I know the votes were already counted, but I'd like to change my vote from VETO to FOR if that's possible. I'd understand if my vote change isn't registered, as it is kind of undermining the voting process; in that case I'd just re-propose building embassies with them.
