And yes, when a person repeatedly lies about the content of resolutions in order to repeal them I think it is fair to say they are badge hunting. It seems you made the mistake of assuming by criticism wasn't born out of fours years of observing IA actions. OOC: Yeah, that is a flagrant violation of...

"Ambassador, you're misreading it. It doesn't say that member nations must sell securities to the CSF - it says they must allow the sale of securities to the CSF. Your government is not being mandated to gather assets and sell them, it's being mandated to allow institutions which have or may c...

OOC: But it isn't a separate badge. To be badge hunting it'd need to be a separate badge. OOC: To-mah-toh, to-may-toh. ??? So is everyone that passes resolutions “badge hunting” simply because it increases the number on the hover-over? You’re all complaining about IA being part of some conspiracy, ...

And yet the UK is currently experiencing the biggest labor shortage since records began, and it correlates with increasing wages because people moving jobs can demand more. Labor shortages across a significant enough section of the economy DOES drive up wages in general because it means other profe...

OOC: Does this not assume that laborers and immigrants are competing for the same jobs — something that has been empirically disproven time and time again — and that immigration does not actually itself create more employment?

I find it interesting how quick people segue from "I'm not racist" to "immigration destroys culture" and back again. Mass immigration destroys culture. Immigration is like sugar; it's good for the country in low quantities, and bad for the country in high quantities. Do you need...

The paradox whereby developed nations destroy themselves by having few children, while underdeveloped countries have a huge excess of children in spite of their circumstances, is certainly interesting. It's all about the individual incentives for child-rearing. In a "developed" western ca...

His accomplishments, his unreserved apology and his GA accomplishments far outstrip one serious mistake. Plus, he has been working very hard to repeal the confusin...

That's what the problem is. I agree that the SC is fair game, but targeting the GA is dumb. If people interested in the GA target regional Delegacies for the purpose of influencing the GA, are they really GPers influencing the GA, or GAers working through GP to influence the GA?
