That vote was unduly influenced by the official-looking WA flag and nation name; the same proposal was resubmitted and failed by a wide margin, but that vote too was unduly influenced, by other nefarious factors. We've yet to really have a fair vote on this. The use of the WA flag was not against t...

Given that: (1) World Assembly resolutions are binding only on member states, whose jurisdiction is necessarily limited to the natural order; and (2) physical immortality is impossible , we must conclude that clauses 1 through 3 of this proposal would have no effect. We therefore struggle to see how...

Deference doesn't mean "What the agency says goes". It instead means that what the agency says, that isn't unreasonable, goes. And that judicial bodies cannot overrule agencies unless their interpretation is unreasonable. I don't see why administrative agencies should be allowed to use a ...

So I guess you all don't read into administrative law. I do. And so does Sep. But at a higher altitude, deference towards administrative agencies is necessary for the functioning of the state. Alternatively, one can hold the position that the judiciary, not the administrative state, has the "d...

It is pretty chock full of false equivilences from the word go and is a frankly bizzare piece of supporting evidence to use.

No, it really isn't. I honestly don't think I have read something that has used so many words to say so very little in quite some time. I'm not sure how to respond to that. I thought the point made was quite clear: global warming is just another public policy problem. It is not "the biggest fo...

Though this delegation absolutely does not deny the reality of anthropogenic climate change, we believe that the predicted rate of warming and its harmful effects, particularly in the short term, have been somewhat exaggerated. We maintain that a combination of (a) market pressure from declining res...

That's not possible when using a numbered list. Line breaks will automatically be added when the proposal is submitted.

EDIT: Actually, it is, if you add empty lists after each line. I'll just remove those when it's time to submit.

I do not think the target resolution is the right hill to die on, even if you support strict limitations on the use of capital punishment.

If two people are convicted of similar crimes in similar circumstances, and assessed to be equally culpable, it is unacceptable for them to be treated differently because in one case the nation has exceeded its quota of capital sentences and in the other it has not.
