Tai-oan wrote:Nope. I'm not well-versed with the NationStates political spectrum here. :)

It's really rather simple, fascists are very bad and want to rid anyone who doesn't think as they do by imprisoning or killing anyone not like them, and antifascists are opposed to that statement and warped and murderous view of the world.

See Spanish Civil War, the Italian invasion of Abyssinia (modern-day Ethiopia), and WW2.

What's the symbol of the flag trying to portray? ;p

It’s the flag of The Free Territory of 1918-1921 founded by Anarchists in Ukraine.

It’s a black flag, symbolising Anarchism.

The symbol at the top is a skull and crossbones, the writing in simplified Chinese reads:

“Death to all those who stand in the way of Freedom!”

Meaning tyrants and dictators of all types. :)

How the U.S. is Able to Dictate to the Rest of the World

MARCH 14, 2021

BY PETE DOLACK

The United States government is able to impose its will on all the world’s countries. The rest of the world, even some of the strongest imperialist countries of the Global North, lie prostrate at the feet of the U.S. What is the source of this seemingly impregnable power? Which of course leads to the next question: How long can it last?

The U.S. moves against any country that dares to act on a belief that its resources should be for its own people’s benefits rather than maximizing profits of multinational corporations or prioritizes the welfare of its citizens over corporate profit or simply refuses to accept dictation in how it should organize its economy. The military is frequently put to use, as are manipulation of the United Nations and the strong arms of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF). But sanctions are a frequently used tool, enforced on countries, banks and corporations that have no presence in the U.S. and conduct business entirely outside the United States. The U.S. can impose its will on national governments around the world, using multilateral institutions to force governments to act in the interest of multinational capital, even when that is opposite the interests of the country itself or that country’s peoples. And when a country persists in refusing to bend to U.S. demands, sanctions imposing misery on the general population are unilaterally imposed and the rest of the world is forced to observe them.

In short, the U.S. government possesses a power that no country has ever held, not even Britain at the height of its empire. And that government, regardless of which party or what personality is in the White House or in control of Congress, is ruthless in using this power to impose its will.

This power is most often wielded within an enveloping shell of propaganda that claims the U.S. is acting in the interest of “democracy” and maintaining the “rule of law” so that business can be conducted in the interest of a common good. So successful has this propaganda been that this domination is called the “Washington Consensus.” Just who agreed to this “consensus” other than Washington political elites and the corporate executives and financial speculators those elites represent has never been clear. “Washington diktat” would be a more accurate name.

So our theme is an Anarchist society? XD I like this concept... it’d be cool if we had a roleplay.... if you don’t mind, could you produce a traditional Chinese version please? :p

'Can Dialectics Break Bricks?' A classic movie.

Favorite part? The bureaucrats are coming! The bureaucrats are coming!

Yes, certainly, especially in Ancient China, there was individuals and communes that lived in bamboo groves and wrote poems and other documents. One of the most well-known was Zhuangzi, with the Wise and Learned Pirate Pete kindly compiling his work into a series of links to his work:

As for traditional Chinese roleplay, have a read of Zuangzi for some ideas. :)
