SPSF and Friends' Fourth of July Party of Freedom and Justice


Image


Happy Fourth of July, NationStates! Are you feeling patriotic? We at the SPSF certainly are! I'm W&S, Minister of Military Affairs. Welcome to our fabulous Independence Day party! We've got a fantastic doubleheader for you today! That's right, in celebration of the 243rd birthday of the greatest country on Earth, we decided to throw not one but two parties! The fireworks crackled, the company was fantastic, and most importantly, freedom and justice won over the forces of darkness.

First on deck was Lily, and their speed didn't spoil the party one bit! A solid haul of 18 defenses.

12 hours later, it was time for Round 2! This time it wasn't just a victory for the freedom fighters, but a flawless, 7-0 victory against TBH. Freedom triumphed and the raiders gave up empty-handed halfway through update. A fresh helping of barbecued black hawk all around!

Well, I’m an American, and I wrote the post, so it was my prerogative as to the theme. And I love me some freedom.

Thanks y’all! I’m excited for SPSF to join in on the defender reports fun. :p

The delegates channel on TSP's Discord was recently made shark themed (yes, in relation to Seraph).

I do not think this is a coincidence.

I was thinking about writing one in German honestly... :P

Edit: But yes Glen, I am an American. I have been living in Germany/Austria the entire time I've been back in TSP though, up until about one week ago, so I definitely understand the confusion.

There is a fine line between not-actionable shitposting and pure flamebaity spam. This firmly falls into the latter camp.

Statement from the Cabinet of the Coalition of The South Pacific
Regarding Mass Ejections in The East Pacific


The Cabinet of The South Pacific is deeply concerned with the ongoing developments within our allied partner The East Pacific. When our regions signed the January Accords, we opened the treaty with a dedication to “promot[ing] the ideals of democracy, unity and peace.” Several actions undertaken by the Fedele administration leave us worried about our sister Feeder’s commitment to democratic governance.

The mass ejection of innocent nations is a serious red flag that we can no longer ignore. The Fedele administration has adopted a program of freely ejecting any nation that is not a member of the World Assembly, has not applied for official citizenship via The East Pacific forum, and maintains the default NationStates flag. These nations have been dubbed “marsupials” in an effort to lessen the negative image of mass ejections, which have historically indicated the rise of an anti-democratic regime in Game-Created Regions.

While the Cabinet makes no claims to be authorities on the laws of The East Pacific, Article F, Section 7 of the Concordat of The East Pacific states in clear terms: “Each nation may enter or leave the region freely, unless that nation is convicted of a crime by the Conclave.” This is not a right guaranteed only to “citizens,” but to “each nation” of The East Pacific. We cannot find any law of The East Pacific that declares not being a World Assembly member, not being a citizen, or maintaining the default flag a crime. Unless The East Pacific is able to provide a clear and precise legal justification for these mass ejections, we must strongly condemn them as anti-democratic and contrary to the commitments made in the January Accords to promote the ideals of democracy.

Additionally, the Cabinet is dismayed at the increased presence and influence of members of the Rahl Family and Lone Wolves United, two groups in NationStates that have perpetrated several coups d’etat and infiltrations of Game-Created Regions. While the Rahl Family portrays itself as an innocent roleplaying group, the Cabinet recognizes that this is merely a façade for the group known as the Empire, which has been prohibited from joining The South Pacific due to its history of threats to our region. The increasing influence of Lone Wolves United is equally worrying, given their history of slowly infiltrating and subsequently overthrowing the Celestial Union of Lazarus. The recent election to the Magisterium of Aleister/Lamb Stone, who helped perpetrate the Lazarus coup, amplifies those concerns. While the Cabinet should not and cannot interfere in the self-determination and internal governance of The East Pacific, we fear that history may be repeating itself.

As an ally of The East Pacific, we implore the Fedele administration to cease the anti-democratic purges of innocent nations and reaffirm The East Pacific’s commitment to the ideals of democracy.

Signed,
The Cabinet

Two clarifications :

(1) "The Fedele administration has adopted a program of freely ejecting any nation that is not a member of the World Assembly, has not applied for official citizenship via The East Pacific forum, and maintains the default NationStates flag."

That is not correct. First we see if a nation is still flying the default flag. If so, then we check to see if they are in the WA, if not, we check to see if they are TEP citizens. If they are not citizens, then they are shown to be marsupials and removed from our presence.

You are making it look like we are ejecting all non - WA and all non - citizen nations and all nations that is flying the default flag.

(2) "While the Rahl Family portrays itself as an innocent roleplaying group, the Cabinet recognizes that this is merely a façade for the group known as the Empire, which has been prohibited from joining The South Pacific due to its history of threats to our region."

Rahl is not a role-playing group. We are the best of the best in NationStates. Also, I've been a member of Rahl for years and Empire is only brought up by outsiders looking for a scapegoat. While there are a couple of Rahl members who were part of that old, dead organization, a comparison between the two is ridiculous.

By quoting a disregarded part of the Concordat at its long standing ally? Spooky. Hardly piling its remaining members from its dead raider community into the region.

You're very quick to defend your friends when you have a self-professed ignorance to the actual matters at hand.

FWIW this is a bit of a non-issue but I'd rather regions/delegates stopped the lame and tired memes from other regions in the absence of adding anything interesting to the region of their own, but some nations have a proclivity for mediocrity.
