"I recognize that there is going to be varied opinions on the matter of World Assembly neutrality in armed conflict. However, I think the WA's historic neutrality is important and should be maintained to ensure there is never the risk of abuse of power from a non-neutral, WA backed military or police force."

Ambassador Tappe: “I am unaware of any region called Donbas.”

Out of character: Just as a note, my comment was in-character, as in something my WA ambassador, not me the player behind the screen said. At least for me, my characters don’t live in a universe where specific events that occurred in real life happen, so specific allusions to RL events don’t really make sense.

That's alright.
The Donbas mention is just an example of the future misuse of a WA military - it takes one bad apple in the bunch to ruin any argument for the WA getting involved in war and peace - especially in an institution that has a flawed structure, with severe disregard for separation of powers, and oligarchic pillars with a democratic façade. In the end, the WA is not a trustworthy institution to carry out any military operation, because those that effectively control it have few reins on their power and will ultimately use it for their particular objectives.

A WA military or police force is not only used for warfare. The are other activities it is needed for, such as peacekeeping missions, enforcing cease-fires or treaties between two states, and a lot more I didn't mention.

"As to the allegations of hypocrisy, should such a proposal arise to create reasonable restrictions upon World Assembly military force, we would support it. With the sheer quantity of drafts proposed to prohibit a World Assembly military, we have of course focused our efforts on preventing them; yet no draft so far has arisen to establish an unrestricted World Assembly military force which would act willy-nilly, with said draft actually having any reasonable chance of passing."

"As to whether it is the logical consequences, it is possible to introduce a World Assembly military -- even if it only acts in smaller-scale functions as providing convoy escorts, for example -- without going as far as to literally invade any nation which happens to be unable to adequately promote beekeeping within its jurisdiction. Inasmuch as that possibility exists, and is reasonably likely, we find a complete blocker to be unnecessary obstructive."

"The mere submission of this proposal has generated more conversation on the topic of a World Assembly backed military in the past day than I had seen in the week prior. The proposal at hand here allows for the World Assembly to engage in humanitarian efforts that have occurred as a result of armed conflict. This comes concurrently with the traditional prohibitions on allowing the World Assembly to raise a force for involvement armed conflict.

The World Assembly has been neutral in armed conflicts between member states throughout its existence. I see no reason to change that well-established tradition of neutrality.

At present, I am planning to wait to see if any additional voices join in support of the proposal and may pull it if there is insufficient support as written. However, I promise that this discussion is not over and that I have not given up on the belief that the World Assembly should retain its neutrality in all armed conflict between member states and, therefore, not raise up its own military or police force."

Your final sentence is incomplete: "unnecessary obstructive to The Ice States' interests".

The notion that the World Assembly has enough moral grandeur in its structure to promote democracy and engage in the activities the pro-war cabinet wants to promote does not check. You can paint this all you want, but the assumption that it will "protect sapient life" is either a hypocritical excuse (again, like a certain president-dictator invading a neighbor country to drive out nazis), or it is an ingenuous delusion.

The World Assembly, as it is conceived, will do nothing more than to establish a self glorifying Praetorian guard, ready to be used as the political establishment desires. With the amount of bias against fascist nations, in a civil war, for example, it is highly unlikely that this Assembly would consider giving the incumbent dictator's people any form of aid or support, instead preferring to prop up the rebels to satisfy its wicked desire for more bloodshed.

Why don't we get real here? The World Assembly is a flip-flopping mess, controlled by judicial Hydra heads constantly snapping at one another and establishing their mock courts, while simultaneously opining and using their influence to pass legislation: zero balance of powers. If this isn't enough, why don't we talk about the constant bias and informal factionalism within this Assembly, both by ambassadors and super-delegates, who engage in a political clientelism for support to their own agendas.

Do you want a practical example? You might or not be aware of a certain super-delegate who was vocally against liberations, because, in their view, it undermined the hard work of raiders. This same super-delegate voted "FOR" liberation of extremist/fascist regions, so that they could be invaded and destroyed, undoubtedly because it appeared ideologically justified to them. We are all biased - everyone is subject to applying their own views to these legislations, especially with the structure in place, which nobody wants to discuss and ameliorate.

The WA is a broken mess. It should stick to quality of life resolutions, those at least make the slight moral sense.

A piece of paper floats into the drafting chamber, gently landing at Knuchel’s desk. The ink appears fresh, written in a bright red colour. A few moments later, a figure wearing an almost military uniform leaves the drafting chamber.

Protecting World Assembly Neutrality

Category: Global Disarmament | Strength: Mild

Acknowledging the World Assembly as a global, organizational body with a defined role in establishing international law; Rather than “global, organisational body”, simply put “global organisation”. I struggle to imagine a global body without organisational characteristics.

Further acknowledging that the World Assembly has historically retained its neutrality in armed conflicts between individual member states; Some creativity in verbs would make this flow more easily. “Recognising”, for example, could be used instead of “further acknowledging”. It is also a strange choice to say “retained”. Perhaps the wording of “Recognising that the World Assembly has historically been neutral…” would be more effective.

Noting that the World Assembly should actively encourage peaceful resolution to conflicts that arise between member states; This clause seems to skip a logical step. The first two clauses establish that the World Assembly operates by strict principle, and the second elucidates that one of these principles is neutrality. There needs to be some other clause arguing as to why neutrality is beneficial to have as one of those principles. This clause seems to go in a different direction altogether, focusing on the peacekeeping role of the World Assembly. If there is some logical link here, which there very well could be, then it should be made more explicit.

Disappointed that the World Assembly is currently silent on its historic neutrality and traditional prohibition on the use of armed forces; The World Assembly has never prohibited armed forces. That would be a very unpopular mandate on member-nations. I believe that you are trying to suggest that the World Assembly is currently silent on its historic neutrality and lack of armed forces.

Therefore, the World Assembly hereby enacts the following articles: I do not think that the italicisation of the first word here is necessary.
1. For the purpose of these articles, conflict shall be defined as armed combat between opposing forces or member states. This means that armed combat between terrorist groups and member-nations is included, so the World Assembly has to remain neutral in conflicts between a group of fundamentalists and a peace-abiding nation. Limiting this to statist actors would be better.
2. The World Assembly (WA) shall remain neutral in all matters of civil or international conflict. The use of a parenthetical acronym for the World Assembly is unnecessary. There is enough space in a resolution to use the full name. Besides, if you were to do so, it should come in the line introducing the active clauses.
3. The WA shall be prohibited from establishing either a military or police force.
4. The WA shall be permitted to establish an armed security force for the purpose of providing security escorts at the request of individual member states or assisting in humanitarian crises. I would add the protection of international facilities owned by the World Assembly, such as the WAHQ, to the list of allowed purposes.
5. The WA urges individual member states to act with dignity and respect in international affairs and conflict resolution further acknowledging that the ultimate goal of such efforts is peaceful resolution. Why is there a “further” here? There is only one thing that is being acknowledged, so that word is unnecessary. Also, there ought to be a comma after “conflict resolution”. I feel as though it is difficult to act with dignity. A nation can act so as to respect the dignity of others, but acting with dignity is a less easy concept. Acting with open-mindedness might be a better goal here.
6. Nothing in this legislation shall prevent individual member states from the ability to establish their own military or police force, or to engage in armed conflict with another member state. Alter “from the ability to establish” to “from establishing”, for the sake of clarity and less awkward wording. I do not quite see the point of this clause, but that is not a major issue.

"Thank you for the helpful critiques of the proposal. Revision 5 has been prepared.

One response to a comment, there is purposeful language in there referring to member states vs forces to prevent the World Assembly from choosing a side in an internal conflict or civil war. Such forces on two sides of an internal conflict are not necessarily member states, but internal forces. In such scenarios it is preferable for the World Assembly to retain its neutrality so that it can remain a force for peace and potential intermediary, if needed.

Thank you again."

“Support. There seems to be no errors in the proposal content, and I believe it is necessary to uphold neutrality. If the WA is called by an affluent nation to assist in unjust wars, that violates the core of the WA. Whether it’s through the GA passing law to improve specific aspects of international society, or through the SC spreading peace and goodwill, the WA’s entire mission is to make the multiverse better, not worse. So, if the WA is granted an army, the slew of potential abuses of said army will burn down the very scaffolding that built this assembly. So to all those who are opposed to this solely because they think a WA army is necessary, please take this into consideration. Thank you.”

"Thank you, Lady Schafer, for the kind words. We believe this has become a much stronger proposal than when it was originally drafted all thanks to the support and wisdom of others, as well as healthy opposition from others within this body.

Thank you again."
