The North Pacific Regional Message Board

The Empire of Dihyang wrote:The Issue
A disturbing new fad has arisen on social media and clickbait sites, featuring linking videos of people suffering violence at the hand of criminals. Muggings, murders, and gang violence are all trending like crazy, and the nation’s youthful populace seems to be addicted to online schadenfreude.
The Debate
1. “REPOST THIS TO SHOW YOU CARE!!!” posts popular blogger Elizabeth Dragon, grinning inappropriately while watching a video of a rather savage beating. “Hey, there’s nothing wrong with showing the world as it is, especially if it increases the hits on my website. How am I supposed to persuade advertisers to sponsor me unless I have the freedom to publish the most shocking content?”
2. “There’s a moral sickness to this nation!” proclaims frocked pastor Randy Fils-Aimé, seen smiling as he flagellates a penitent fellow clergyman with a rubber whip. “We can only remedy this by proper schooling, with properly funded religious authority imprinting a sense of right and wrong from an early age. When we have young people who are more interested in acting right rather than watching wrong, Dihyang will be a better place.”
3. “Gahh! I can’t even tell what’s real and isn’t real anymore!” moans your social media handler Nosipho May, while fighting a losing battle against pop-ups and clickbait sites. “Whatever happened to the good old days of internet journalism, back when they weren’t littered with ads... and when ads themselves weren’t disguised as news? This sort of practice ought to be banned! The internet needs to return to a place of intellectual discussion and education, not this cesspool of clickbait, gross-out violence, and trolling.”
4. “Social media made this problem; let social media fix it,” suggests too-reasonable seeming taxi driver Xanatos Snow, who considers himself an expert on how Dihyang is run after driving around several politicians. “Tell the big companies behind these sites that they have to police their own sites and enforce better standards, or face financial penalties. They’ve got huge profit margins, and they pay barely any tax, so let them shoulder the cost of the problems they’ve created.”
Which should I choose?

Do what you think is the best. :]

Back in the top 1% for integrity. Making the deal with the pirate party really did a number on a lot of my stats. It really hit freedom from taxation hard (nation=oparsenal/detail=trend?censusid=50); in fact, I still haven't completely recovered those losses yet.

It seems that once you hit 100% tax rate, the only way to increase from there is to decrease freedom from taxation, and even then, the true tax rate is only shown on the chart. My tax rate is 103.26%, and as you can see on the graph, that same issue, where I chose to work with the rebel pirate party, made my tax rate take an absolute swan dive (nation=oparsenal/detail=trend?censusid=49). Still haven't recovered those losses, either.

One of the ways I have fun with this game is to track my nation's gains and losses, and then make these ridiculous borderline psychotic proclamations about how successful this nation of mine is or has been. You might have seen one. So when I say "that's how I like to play the game," that's what I mean.

💚✌

I would pick option 3 if I got this issue, because I see no problem with the government taking action to protect the welfare of the society it governs, and that governments can certainly legislate morality, to incredible effect - since the marriage equality ruling, the use of "f*gg*t" on Twitter has dropped by an incredible amount, as just one example.

If you select 3, I think you can expect authoritarianism to increase, along with social conservatism, intelligence, and maybe culture. I think it's likely that economic freedom, ideological radicality, and freedom from taxation will decrease.

These are just my best guesses, man. We banned the Internet a long time ago in OPArsenal, and I've never gotten this issue, but based off the setup, that's what I inferred.

Unemployment problem? Conscript them into the military! Why have people begging for change and loitering in the streets when they can become sandbags or cannon fodder!

Hi guys! Please let me take my very first opportunity to greet you all! I hope to have a nice day here.
