I dont think so. If I killed the first human, it would just be blank. I would cease to exist. That "paradox" is just people overthinking it.

Sergioso wrote:Dear WA nations,

The current resolution at vote in the General Assembly, Debtor Voting Rights, should not be passed. It's yet another pretty rude effort by Imperium Anglorum. Here's why:

This is clearly I.A. just trying to add another "We passed this!" to its name.
Despite criticizing people for "badge-hunting", IA is clearly doing the same. IA shows its hypocritical attitude here by trying to pass a poorly thought-out resolution using its cronies and the WA elite.

I.A. mocks the WA in a particularly snarky way.
I.A. has been criticized in the past for writing proposals that the majority of the World Assembly doesn't understand. Now it tries to pass a one-line resolution. That's fairly insulting, if you ask me.

This resolution is fundamentally flawed.
If a man is incarcerated on the sole count of his debts, he is, in fact, incarcerated. His voting privileges are denied of him given his imprisonment. If a member nation is now suddenly barred from "invoking a person's debts as reason to deprive that person of the right to vote," what happens to the incarcerated man? Is he allowed to vote while his inmates are not? He must be, since his debts can't deny him the right to vote and the only reason he's in prison is because of his debts. Or, alternatively, is he set free, completely undermining the criminal justice system and societal order? Or, is he not actually afforded a vote because he's in jail and the criminal code is upheld - but he's only in jail due to his debts, so then what must happen is...

In short: this resolution is obnoxious, disrespectful and vague. It does NOT deserve your vote, and neither does Imperium Anglorum, who should, if anything, apologise to the WA for playing this silly little game.

Thank you for your time,

The Elector Menshchikov Alexei Igorevich

You just quoted a telegram I got.

I was about to say . . .

What's interesting is that the sender of the telegram has the same flag that I use for some of my nations.

I too fantasize about killing people merely for holding a particular set of beliefs, which is why I propose the wholesale slaughter of Protestants for their heresy against the Catholic Church.
And if you argue that's different, why? Because one group killed lots of people in living memory, while the one I'm talking about only killed lots of people centuries ago?
I can't even justify it through a consequentialist lens, since if 'averting the negative consequences of communism' was your goal, you could much more easily achieve it with 'killing Karl Marx before he wrote The Communist Manifesto, so clearly you just want an excuse to butcher vast quantities of people.
Notice how when people talk about stopping Nazis, they don't say 'I would travel back in time to kill every Nazi', they say 'I'd travel back in time to (insert date) to kill Hitler'?

Soviet high command deserved an axe butchered 2,000,000 of my countrymen...

I do not really care if nations with debtors' prisons are inconvenienced by a common-sense WA resolution so the "for" vote in my main stands! Based on what I have seen, the mass TG is not doing anything for the "against" side. In Forest, some nations that initially voted "against" switched their votes.

This sentiment seems fairly common:

I'm unsure as to whether the game is the W.A., or all of NS, but either way, I am changing my vote to FOR to spite a pretentious and insulting telegram author.

People do not like being told what to do!

I honestly don't care about WA politics.

'High command' is different from 'everybody who was part of the party, or depending on definition, even merely an adherent of the ideology'.
Determining that those directly responsible for mass suffering deserve some form of punishment is distinct from determining that everybody who thinks a certain way deserves to be punished.
