Thomasia asked me to post the following: *snip* A lovely post! He seems like a player to miss. He is/was. While I didn't always agree with Thom's ideological positions in-game (my first assignment for the Meritocracy was to spy on the ACC in its waning days, for example), he was a tremendous mind w...

Swarms of what appeared to be zombies raided a mall in downtown Adelphia today. Fortunately, it turned out they were merely shoppers looking for an early start to holiday shopping.

If you've got specific questions feel free to throw them out, quite a few of the older/more experienced Meritocrats are still around (Blackbird, Punk, Eli). Most of the basics were covered - we were pro-market (except Blackbird :evil: ), leaned libertarian. We had a pretty sophisticated/well-run reg...

Good to see another of the old guard that valiantly defended the freedom of the NS world from the tyranny of the UN/WA back.

Winnipeg was around near the very beginning if I remember right (late 2002). I'm pretty sure Eureka was as well.

As the above poster mentions, population alone isn't completely accurate if the nation has CTEd before (I started in July 2003, for example, but am well behind on population).

The Meritocracy (as a government)....I'm not sure when they moved to The New Meritocracy (the region) but it was before I joined which was back in November 2003.

Don't listen to Blackbird though, they redistributed the years the region was around to be given equally to other communist regions. ;)

I guess I got Valcoma mixed up with someone else. OddsEnds was from ACCEL or something.

PopeHope is technically still around too, lest I forget. Tuesday Heights was a senator too, although she resigned during one of the many NPO/anti-NPO brouhahas

Nobody important There's a few idling in the region but not, as far as I know, doing much in the game - Winni, Weg, Eureka, Frap, Warrior Thorin, Bumpi. A couple I want to say were senators but not significant figures (OddsEnds and Valcoma or something like that). I think Eli might be around in some...

Even granted that the threat was (much) more real in the Civil War than in World War 2, why does any of that make it a ncessity that habeas corpus be suspended (by Congress, let alone by executive fiat) or that military tribunals be established either in general or where the civil courts are still o...

The Supreme Court will not act in cases unless they are referred to it. Millgan came to the Court through a certificate of division from the judges of the Circuit Court for Indiana, on a petition for discharge rom unlawful imprisonment. Which is why the Court avoided making a substantive judgement ...

Oh, and the Milligan case involved maybe half a dozen people. They were convicted but their executions were scheduled for May of 1865, so they were able to argue their case before the Court after the war ended. They could have just shot them, you know, but they didn't. I'm sure anyone subjected to ...

Lincoln signed off on the 13th Amendment in early 1865 before it was sent to the states for ratification. Just because Booth murdered him before ratification doesn't mean you can't chalk it up on his ledger. Yeah, I'm aware of how the Constitutional amendment process works. The fact he signed in do...

For what it's worth, that history sounds more like Mammothistan than BlackAdder to me, although I talked to BA on a more informal basis and didn't read many of his "NPO-ish" posts. My impression of the Pacific around that time mirrors what else has been said - TheDoc was definitely not as ...

Why do people keep saying he ended slavery? Have you not read what the Emanicipation Proclamation actually did? The actual - well, de jure - ban on slavery was a constitutional amendment and even that was undermined to a great extent during the aftermath of the Civil War. His anti-civil liberties ac...
