What is rooted is easy to nourish.
What is recent is easy to correct.
What is brittle is easy to break.
What is small is easy to scatter.

Prevent trouble before it arises.
Put things in order before they exist.
The giant pine tree
grows from a tiny sprout.
The journey of a thousand miles
starts from beneath your feet.

Rushing into action, you fail.
Trying to grasp things, you lose them.
Forcing a project to completion,
you ruin what was almost ripe.

Therefore the Master takes action
by letting things take their course.
He remains as calm
at the end as at the beginning.
He has nothing,
thus has nothing to lose.
What he desires is non-desire;
what he learns is to unlearn.
He simply reminds people
of who they have always been.
He cares about nothing but the Tao.
Thus he can care for all things.

The ancient Masters
didn't try to educate the people,
but kindly taught them to not-know.

When they think that they know the answers,
people are difficult to guide.
When they know that they don't know,
people can find their own way.

If you want to learn how to govern,
avoid being clever or rich.
The simplest pattern is the clearest.
Content with an ordinary life,
you can show all people the way
back to their own true nature.

LETSGOOOO, I am a powerhouse.
LONG LIVE THE EMPIRE AND THE DICKS

Sunday, 15 May, 2022 | 66

All streams flow to the sea
because it is lower than they are.
Humility gives it its power.

If you want to govern the people,
you must place yourself below them.
If you want to lead the people,
you must learn how to follow them.

The Master is above the people,
and no one feels oppressed.
She goes ahead of the people,
and no one feels manipulated.
The whole world is grateful to her.
Because she competes with no one,
no one can compete with her.

Security Council Resolution At Vote

Liberate Confederacy Of Layem

A resolution to strike down Delegate-imposed barriers to free entry in a region.

Blah, Blah
Blah

******************

LIBERATION PROPOSALS:
The bottom line is that when Defenders lose in the field of battle they result to cowardice and change the rules of play. I have kept this Region Raider free for 17+ years* by keen vigilance to the Game Play throughout the JenGuv World. This has included Puppets and Spies and infiltration of Regions. Such is the way of the Rules which I accepted when I created my Nation on October 28, 2003. If a Region cannot defend itself, too bad! The leadership should have been responsible. These SC Resolutions tilt the balance to Elitist who determine what is a Raid and what is Liberation by manipulating the Rules. It is like playing with a brat who takes away the toys when the outcome goes against his bias. The only security I have in my Region aside from Endorsements is the RIGHT as Delegate to Password my Region against any threat. If this RIGHT is at the whim of the SC then have the game makers remove all password abilities across the board thereby removing this continued farce of hypocrisy.

*except for one 12 hour period

As such, Mikeswill voted against the World Assembly Resolution "Liberate Confederacy of Layem".

I get that you're against the Elite and all but I'm not sure you're aware that by voting against, it only serves to protect a region that openly welcomes and supports homophobia, transphobia, and fascism as the everyday norm. That's not something I would want to support/protect. Would you be willing to withdraw your vote of against for this proposal ? I've seen second hand of what they've done and all of it is way too horrid to be mentioned on-site without running a foul of the rules.

No.

I find it hypocritical that Nations have to come to this Region, which has a 17 year history voicing it's opposition AGAINST LIBERATIONS for our own phylosophical/political reasons, and deny our right as a Region to stand firm in our conviction that Liberations are an abhorant attack on a Region's soveriegnty.

I loathe Liberations and am willing to lose my long term leadership of this Region if the choice of the Nations choose to move in a different direction.

Find another way to censor/ condemn/ isolate those who don't believe like you do, but do not infringe on the right of a WA Delegate to use the last vestiage of power they have by taking away their right to Password protect a Region.

Even more hypocritical is the power elite that insists every region follow their whim regardless of their incredible margin of victory.

Why can't the main stream powers leave our small Region of 58 votes alone when they have an 11,000 vote margin of victory?

Allow us our soveriegn right to ideologically disagree.

I support this statement

Post self-deleted by Mikeswill.

To the Nations who attack me over a vote in the Security Council:

You don't know me
You don't know what I do for a living; what I eat; how I love; how I express myself to the unerverse
You don't know the hours and days and months and years that I have spent dedicated to this region
You don't know my family background or my friends or my politics
You don't know what my favorite color is
Do I like dogs or cats better

What you know is that I voted in a manner you disagree with
You assume that because I voted opposite your choice
I support the alternative
How childishly simplistic

I told you why I voted the way I did
But you cannot respect my human right to have a perspective that is diferent from you
And so you attack me
You threaten me
You become the bully that you initially attempted to fight
All in the spirit of righteousness

The Pharases and Scribes did the same to Jesus
Crucified him because their linear minds could not comprehend his message
In their minds they stamped out a heretic

In time maybe your minds and hearts will develop a deeper understanding of the complexities of life
That not everything is as it seems
That multiple perspectives exist
If one opens their eyes

I am angry at the attacks
But I understand the simplistic linear development
That is blind to alternatives

Maybe some day you will learn
To Love even those with whom you disagree
And Love also those whom you do not understand
