Can someone translate "The New Eagles" and "New Eagles"? Thank you. Latin has no definite article so both would be the same: "aquilae novae". What would be the translation of "one union indivisible"? If you want "union" in the sense of the abstract ...

“The use of the word ‘objective’ in clause 2b disagrees with me. The pleasure derived from seeing one’s home free of flies can’t really be objectively measured, nor can the taste improvements from eating lobster rather than a lobster substitute.

"As written, clause 2 could be interpreted so that defence of others is only permitted where they are unable to defend themselves to any degree - such as in the case of a small child. I would suggest rewording it to avoid inadvertently allowing that, perhaps with something like 'Mandates that t...

OOC: I was not aware that "sapient" was considered "science fiction technobabble"? As far as I'm aware, sapience (and derived terms) has been very common used in the GA pretty much interchangeably with personhood. I don't think there's much ambiguity there. OOC: More than half as...
