"Opposed. This is a national issue. Nobody in Moreover is affected if, say, C.D.S.P. children are armed to the teeth without training." If you don't mind me asking, are you opposed to the repeal in general, or just the specific wording of this new replacement resolution? If the former, th...

"Attainder is not ex post facto. It makes being a certain person illegal, which is something that a victim is both before and after the law is passed." In which case, doesn't GAR #323 3. Requires member nations to ensure that all established international or statutory laws, judicial prece...

Bills of attainder are laws. H'mm. As they involve penalties, that makes them 'penal laws', yes? In which case, what about: GAR # 79 'Ban on Ex Post Facto laws' Defines, for the purposes of this resolution, an ex post facto law as a criminal or penal law that retroactively changes the legal consequ...

Some of the Free Kingdom's top scientists have done some research, and it turns out that executions have been shown to cause death in inmates. In the opinion of this delegation, that is quite serious . Can you truly identify no criminal justice solutions other than death and solitary confinement? &...

Yes, yes, it wasn't there when I submitted it. Not sure why it made it on, as there's nothing from where it got copied to indicate why it would transfer. So other than a minor coding typo.....?

A person found guilty by attainder is not charged of a crime. Also, this argument was made repeatedly in previous attempts against attainder. Yes, they are. https://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/bill_of_attainder "Attainder defines guilt by legislative fiat, not guilt by trial, fair or otherwise. I ...

OOC: Not when you're put in time-out to calm down. Spending a couple of hours alone won't drive sane people into psychosis. No, it absolutely is torture, regardless of the reason you say you are doing it. If they're psychotic to begin with, they likely should be alone in a room. We should treat men...

Doing so is a good way to get your input on this forum ignored. We all play cooperatively. If somebody doesnt want to play cooperatively, they can do so by themselves in the corner.

I will never support this. My nation chooses science, Pluto is not a planet, a man is a man, and a woman is a woman. The much better goal should be gender equality. If both are truly equal then there is no difference anyway. "Did you miss how this is already enshrined in other resolutions?&quo...
