Well, there was no reason for it to be "a roomful of monkeys throwing crap" because we agreed on many points, and we are civilised people who are able to hear something against their own opinion.

On the... internet?

I know, shocking. You should see YouTube comments, if you want to see people throwing "feces" at each other.

What should I choose in this issue? Keep in mind that I have a 9% unemployment rate.

The Issue
Amidst a growing level of unemployment, thousands of workers have been fired and then replaced by automatic systems. They have petitioned you to intervene.

The Debate
“It’s just sickening! Do you know how long it took most of us to get a decent, ‘stable’ job?” shouts William Walker, president of the Mobiusobia Labour Alliance, before dramatically sweeping your personal belongings off your desk. “And now we’re losing our livelihoods to robots so that while our families starve, the corporations get even richer! Don’t let the capitalist pigs blind you! This practice must be banned!”

Accept

“Hey, I’ve got a job to keep up too, you know,” says Caesar Cullen, a factory manager. “If I don’t think of new ways of keeping costs down, the investors will go elsewhere. It’s my neck on the line as much as anyone else’s, even if I do have much more money. Besides, it’s business, and no-one ought to be able to say who - or what - I can hire.”

Accept

“This could be resolved if instead of replacing workers with machines, we added machines to workers!” enthuses Holly Kirk, CEO of Mondas Ltd. “By replacement of body parts with stronger, better, metal prostheses, we can make the best industrial workers - literally - in the world! Imagine a shelver who can shift whole crates with just one arm! One finger! So let’s hear no more of this deplorable ‘replacing workers with machines’ idea and look to the future!”

Accept

“You can’t allow that!” gasps Mark Rodriguez, a manual labourer. “If that happens, only the people with cyber limbs will get jobs! And the corporations will contract you into having the surgery if you want to have one! No thank you! We should ban computers, and go back to the grass roots of industry when all the machines weren’t taking over, and workers were the salt of the earth! Then maybe we’d see a bit more appreciation! And cash!”

Number 2. This will boost your economy and scientific advancement without hurting your civil rights. People will always find a new job if they are willing. I would definitely pick this one, speaking as the number one employment rate nation in the region.

The only problem is that wealth gaps will spike, which I try my best to keep low without turning into communism.

Not all wage gaps are bad, different work, different value. Cannot expect the workers to earn the same amount of money as the factory owner.

Do third it’s a compromise

hey LDA! hope you have a good weekend

On my alt, Troois Sul, one of the 'causes of death' is 'War'.

I've never seen that before, not with any of my nations nor anyone else's.

Hell yeah! I'm a Monarchy now!

How do you change your regime? Through issues?

France Europe wrote:How do you change your regime? Through issues?

Yes, I think the most common ones are autocracy and feudalism.

I only know of 2 issues that gives you monarchy, and 1 that gives you theocracy

I'm happy for you as I knew you were a Monarchy. Can you tell us a bit more about your system and your royal family, maybe in the RP zone? If I understand well, the King has executive power, not like in the UK.

The Prime Minister

The Government wishes to inform you that the election season has begun. All nations joining the region from NOW won't be able to run or vote anymore.
As Prime Minister, I will ensure the reliability and accuracy of this election, so that it retains its democratic character.
I am counting on each and every one of you to be a good citizen by following the rules, being honest and making the election season go as smoothly as possible. All citizens are encouraged to take part in discussions and debates in our RMB, but I insist that they remain decent, respectful and appropriate.

Wishing you a pleasant and relevant election season.

Good luck to all!

As WA Delegate representing our region, I would like your opinion:

Dou you think I should vote FOR or AGAINST the current Security Council proposal to commend Trotteram?

I voted: FOR

They seem to have helped a lot with Issue writing. I haven't seen there name on any that I've answered, but I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

Are the borders opening soon?

Supierland wrote:Are the borders opening soon?

I will ask the other ministers., but there has to be majority for it to happen.

Mobiusobia wrote:I will ask the other ministers., but there has to be majority for it to happen.

Yes, I would like to open the borders, but the problem is that more than 50% of ministers must agree to do so. Along with Mobiusobia, I will ask the others again wehter they want it or not.

It has been long enough, I believe, as an outsider, that the black hawks will and or have, moved on, as long as you don’t provoke them. Therefore I think it is ok to open your border. I would recommend, that the tough screening system remain in place for a week or so to be sure tho.

I would tho, be very wary of having elections this soon after the past events. Right now you have achieved stability, but this stability is fragile, and will remain that way. If you do go forward with the elections, I would encourage everyone to maintain the current government, so the current stability is not upset by any possible drastic changes.

What we could do, is have the border control solely in the hands of the founder. If the elected PM gives a good enough reason, with a majority support, the Founder must comply and eject the problematic nation.

That way potential raiders won't be able to eject the founder, since they can only request the use of such power.

That is a theory, and something that will have to be addressed in time. But I am at this point more worried about there becoming a rift between members which endangers stability.
