Question: How would "liberating" Nazi Europa as the latest Security Council proposal might do help? Would it force it to abandon Nazism?
It won't do anything. People have started doing Liberations instead of Condemns because Condemnations are taken as badges of honor by a lot of the raiding communities. A passed liberation does nothing more or less than remove a Delegate-imposed password. Nazi Europa isn't passworded, so there would be no net effect.
As for "abandoning Nazism", have any of the laws against Nazis actually prevented people from having or displaying Nazi beliefs and principles? Since it doesn't do squat in the real world, what makes you think we can effect those changes in this game?
**** New WA Resolution Notification *****
There is currently a new Security Council Resolution at vote. When expressing your opinion, please note which Resolution it is for. And remember Texans, your individual vote does count!
The new Resolution is called:
"Liberate Nazi Europa
A resolution to strike down Delegate-imposed barriers to free entry in a region.
Category: Liberation Nominee (region): Nazi Europa Proposed by: La Navasse
The Security Council,
Acknowledging that Nazi Europa"...
<see the Security Council for full text and to vote>
Synopsis: The Security Council is attempting to dive into "invader tactics" for the second time in a row. This seriously undermines the Security Council. No Stars. NewTexas will go on record as AGAINST on this Resolution. This is only the opinion of NewTexas. We look forward to other Texans' opinions and comments on this Resolution. If good arguments to the contrary are made, we will reconsider our position.
The Texas response was flat on the last SC vote -- Liberate KAISERREICH -- which was passed after gaining 76.6% of the vote. As a reminder, all we are looking for is a simple 10% of Texans to say one way or another. We are a force for change in the WA. Every vote counts! There were 3 publicly-expressed opinions on the last Resolution with the final Texas tally running 2 FOR and 1 AGAINST and 0 ABSTAIN and 0 UNDECIDED. Texans were almost unanimous.
If you would like to take part in shaping the world you live in, please vote. Voting is a right and a privilege, please consider using it. And, if you are not a member of the World Assembly, we strongly encourage you to join.
All Texas WA Member nations please vote. Please make your Texan opinions known in Texas by 11:00 PM Thursday and in the World Assembly voting booth by 11:00 AM Texas Time on Friday the 23rd. Current voting in The World is running - Votes FOR: 9720 Votes AGAINST: 1782
PS: Remember, be sure to vote at the World Assembly too!
It's just feel-good virtue signalling crap.
It may not be my place to comment, (if so, feel free to supress), but the way you're describing the situation is kinda wrong, the GP community has a longstanding tradition of uniting against nazi regions, both defender and raider regions have commited to locking down nazi regions, saying this is a "invader tactic" is just plain and simply wrong
Along with that, in this context the liberation is used as a black mark on the region, rather then giving a badge of honour via a condemnation, as both commend and condemn resolutions are some of the biggest honours possible in the GP community

Thank you for your concerns Blood Wine. We will try to clarify our position without receiving a Mod Warning. First off, historically, we believe the Liberation action was created to free regions locked with a password. The subtitle placed on a Liberation Resolution vote clearly says "A resolution to strike down Delegate-imposed barriers to free entry in a region".
See Max's 2009 Announcement of Liberations.
Typically, those nations doing the passwording were Invaders, as we prefer, or Raiders, as Max prefers. Sometimes, it was just because the region was locked and the Founder died and no one knew the password. This worked all fine and dandy for a number of years. Then, in 2012, Cormac stark proposed Liberate NAZI EUROPE to "Liberate" a non-invaded region that had a Founder who had passworded the region. He even expressly stated that it was with the intent of invading it. This was a radical idea at the time. From then on, such "aggressive", "pro-active" liberating of regions was only a stunt executed by Invaders. That is the logic behind our statement that this Resolution and the one before it was a "invader tactics". We are saddened to see it used by Defenders. That is the only point we are trying to make.
However, we realize feelings run pretty high when it comes to Nazis. Some think they are "the worst". Others think Invaders are "the worst", some think Fascists are "the worst", others think Christians are "the worst" and yet others think Defenders are "the worst". Personally, we do not worry about Nazis. The Nazis can sit over there in their little world thinking their little nasty thoughts, spouting their little propaganda to rile up others. And, it works as evidenced by this Resolution and others before it. It is the invaders that act on their nasty little thoughts. Invaders deprive nations, regions of something, while Nazis are all talk. We are all for freedom of speech as long as it stays just that, speech. Sticks & Stones, and all that...
So, that is the expanded version of that brief synopsis. We hope that clarifies our position.
