Up Close and Personal: Altino

Up Close and Personal: Altino

Wymondham's second article in the Up Close and Personal series talks to Altino, Pharaoh of Osiris, about politics, her plans for succession and her rise to the top.

Below is a short excerpt from the article;
Syberis announced his intent to abdicate in April of 2018 and Altino says that she did not join Osiris with the intent of gaining the delegacy and with regards to her reaction when Syberis announced his abdication, she had this to say:

“Uhhhh… Give me a couple days to think about it.” I didn’t really come to Osiris with delegacy on the menu. Lol. I was there to help Syb, but I definitely didn’t want to replace him. Osi’s been my home since I walked in the door, but it’s not my first parade in regional leadership. Regional leadership is exhausting, and I already knew that. But at the end of the day, I’ve always put what I thought was good for Osiris over what I personally preferred, so I accepted.”

There hasn't been new articles for a while. It would be a shame to see such an ambitious project go to waste.

It would be reassuring to get an update on what's interfering with the newspaper.

Statement from the Board

Postby NationStates Today » Sat Jan 26, 2019 9:01 pm

Readers,

Our goal since the conception of NationStates Today has been to provide a consistent news source for everything and everyone in NationStates. Our goal has been to provide a news source for those who want unbiased but insightful coverage of events big and small. Our goal was not met on Saturday, January 19th, when a Saturday newspaper was due to be published.

Our writers and our readers were let down -- the hard work that our staff put in to ensure that the news was delivered to our readers was never rewarded. Our readers were never delivered the product of our staff’s effort.

We’d like to first clarify why the Saturday newspaper was not published. First, our Chairman, who is responsible for our web operations, general management, and other editorial duties, was and currently still is on an extended leave of absence due to a cross-continental trip. The Chief Content Officer, who creates the newspaper PDF and contributes to editorial efforts, was also on a leave of absence from Friday to Sunday, when most of the work necessary to publish the newspaper edition is done. Acknowledging this, we recognize that the lack of a plan to hand off the publishing efforts to our Graphics & Publishing Team and to appoint interim editors.

In light of this, we’d also like to talk about two changes that are being made to the NationStates Today operation. First, the “Saturday Edition” newspaper will be renamed to the “Weekend Edition” newspaper in order to give more flexibility to our writers and publishers. Second, we’ve appointed Precoixious, our former Chief Legal Officer, to the position of Human Resources Director and member of the Board to effectively manage incoming staff applications. Third, we’ve appointed Wymondham, our Osiris correspondent and Up Close and Personal columnist, to the position of Interim Gameplay Editor and Llo, our Leftist Assembly correspondent, to the position of Interim Politics Editor. The two will be helping out with editing gameplay and politics articles from our writers as we expand our operations.

As always, we will be publishing Volume 2, No. 3 of the Weekend Edition newspaper this weekend. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us on Discord.

Thank you,

The Executive Board

Statement Regarding Publishing and the Future

Postby NationStates Today » Mon Feb 04, 2019 11:44 am

Cross posted from Discord

To Whom It May Concern,

The Board has been informed by our Chief Content Officer, Brihimia, that he will be unable to produce our weekend edition for the time being. In line with that, I have made interim appointments with the aim of restarting weekend publishing as soon as possible, either in the same format as before or in a format that works better for our publication.

We are closing out our initial interviews for editors and will be making final appointments this evening or tomorrow morning. With that further organisation skeleton in place, I hope to return to regular article publishing as soon as possible - as I have stated before, my aim is to see 2 to 3 articles published on our website a week. Once the issue of publishing and editing has been resolved, I will propose the corporate charter to our writers for initial discussion and approval, followed by a public consultation. If approved in its current form, writers will elect 4 governors to oversee executive operations, and the readership will elect 1 such governor.

Furthermore, in line with the vote held in this channel on the 12th of January, the @Visitor role will now be mentioned whenever a new article is released. This is provisional, and I am considering alternate ways of doing it.

If you have any questions or concerns please raise them in #general , or DM me.

Regards,
Lewis
Chairman

Up Close and Personal with Halo

Postby NationStates Today » Wed Feb 06, 2019 2:00 pm

Up Close and Personal: Halo

Wymondham's new article in the Up Close and Personal series talks to Halo, Delegate of the West Pacific, about his recent constitutional reforms.

Below is a short excerpt from the article;
Halo admits that on occasions he has felt himself lose control:

“I have, but I have the good fortune to be a very slow typist. That gives me time to catch myself before I respond. If a moment isn’t enough to calm me down and help me gather my thoughts, I step away. It’s so much easier to do that online than in person!”

Up Close and Personal with Kuramia

Postby NationStates Today » Wed Feb 20, 2019 2:50 am

Up Close and Personal: Kuramia

Wymondham's new article in the Up Close and Personal series talks to Kuramia, President of Europeia, about politics and the future of her position, given the recent executive reforms.

Below is a short excerpt from the article;
Despite having been in Europeia for nearly 4 years now, Kuramia felt that this time, everything came together perfectly for a run at the presidency:

“The most important thing to a successful campaign is having everything lined up for that campaign. I felt like everything came together perfectly. I was ready, the region felt ready, and the timing aligned. I realized I had the time and energy necessary for the job's full scope. I had people who could step into needed roles for my cabinet. Also I had a great person to act as a support and advisor in Pierce, who ran with me as Vice President. I approached people for my cabinet and as people accepted positions, I became more solid in my decision. My campaign finally formed in my mind and I set to writing my platform. I guess the biggest reason I ran was because it was finally an exciting prospect for me and not something to be unsure or scared of.”

“This idea that UCRs and their members are an invasive species is one of the most ludicrous and appalling ideas I have read. Francoism stinks of fascism, and like fascism is a true threat to the game. They cannot seriously and effectively reason that UCRs and their people are a threat to them. Not when, in truth, UCRs and GCRs are the same. We both put governmental systems in place. We both worry about the security of our region. We both have established cultures. How are we different? It’s the same argument that fascism and Nazism brought forth to further their causes. As said by Hermann Goering at the Nuremberg Trials: ‘The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.’”

This is disgusting. I'm not a friend to the NPO and don't think I ever will be, but comparing the NPO to the Nazis and to fascists is beyond the pale. That it wasn't challenged by your reporter - then again, considering they are part of the NPO delenda est crew - is immensely disappointing.

Europeia should be ashamed of the words of it's president.

Okay, what? This is simply outrageous. I'm certainly no friend of the NPO, but this is crossing the IC/OOC line. Calling someone fascists due to an in-game ideology which they follow is just disgusting. No one here is fascist, and comparing the NPO, or any other group which is not fascist for that matter, to an ideology that killed millions is unacceptable. I don't like the NPO IC, doesn't mean I have to resort to calling them fascists (indeed, I get along relatively well with some NPOers OOC).

Looks like someone forgot to shut the echo chamber window all the way.
CRUOR is a supernatural force, a holy spirit-like entity of awesome power and knowledge.
CRUOR rewards her followers with power, knowledge and influence of their own, if their loyalty proves they are worthy.
CRUOR judges worthiness by loyalty to Blood (herself), loyalty to Brotherhood (fellow disciples), and loyalty to the core values of CRUOR.
The core values of CRUOR are Courage, Resolve, Unity, Order, and Ruthlessness.
CRUOR remembers everyone who has ever wronged her, and does not accept divided allegiances.
Devoted followers of CRUOR are rewarded with IMMORTALITY, a life beyond death.

While Europeia is our ally and we do not currently have diplomatic relations with the NPO, I do not feel that I can let this comment pass.
I hope that friends can call out friends when they have erred.
Regardless of what the NPO has done, equating them with Nazis is going far beyond the bounds of civil discourse.
Doing so insults good people, trivializes the Nazi horror and calls one's judgment into question.
In the future, I would hope that regions can disagree without resorting to hyperbole and incivility.

I don't agree with the outrage here, NPOers over the years have often winked at, and toyed with Stalinist and ethno-nationalist themes. Their spokespeople have borrowed liberally from the same "anti-globalist," anti-semitic rhetoric that depicted people as rats in "the deep state"; they've also encouraged a culture of exaltation that even led one Emperor to resign, saying he felt uncomfortable that youth in the NPO acted much like the youth he saw in the Bosnian War.

The name, "New Pacific Order" is undoubtedly an unsubtle wink to Neuordnung, Hitler's "New Order," alternatively Neuordnung Europas, "New European Order."

Critics here are saying that NPO is allowed to lift from these sources and change a few terms, and not only do they not have to be held responsible for it, the people who point this out ought to be ashamed for equating them with the very source material they've emulated.

Let's play a game. It's called, what is Proper Francoist Thought and what is Mein Kampf? Plus some Stalin/Mussolini/Francisco thrown in for colour. I've replaced "jew" with "userite."

.....

  • 'The keystone of the Francoist doctrine is its conception of the State, of its essence, its functions, and its aims. For Francoism, the State is absolute, individuals and groups relative.'
  • 'A Pacific will almost always initially, and perhaps naively, take the path that looks most natural to it; that of interregional cooperation and surrender of its sovereignty for what it perceives as wider influence and power.'
  • 'The ignorance of the broad masses about the inner nature of the userite, the lack of instinct and narrow-mindedness of our regional classes, make us an easy victim for this Userite campaign of lies.'
  • 'Democracy is beautiful in theory; in practice it is a fallacy.'
  • 'A Francoist revolution can never be reached by popular public mandate alone, due to the firm grip the Userites have on the Pacific through political manipulations and double agents. It is due to these overwhelming odds that the Francoists must take on the matter from the perspective of the enemy and use deception themselves.'
  • 'The Userite domination in the state seems so assured that now not only can he call himself a Userite again, but he ruthlessly admits his ultimate national and political designs. A section of his class openly owns itself to be a foreign people, yet even here they lie.'
  • 'Userite regions infiltrate and infect the Pacific, corrupting Feederites into puppets to the point that the Pacific is nothing on its own, with no power or will of its own; becoming a slave to the Userite region it entered into contact with with the contrary intention of furthering its own power and influence.'
  • 'These people know only too well how to use falsehood for the basest purposes. From time immemorial. However, userites have known better than any others how falsehood and calumny can be exploited.'
  • 'Francoists see these institutions for the illusions they are - whether they be a more overt military slavery, or a cleverly shrouded democratic slavery – and seek to shatter them and show the empty promises of the imperialists for the deceptions they are.'
  • 'Advance towards Francoism cannot but cause the exploiting elements to resist the advance, and the resistance of the exploiters cannot but lead to the inevitable sharpening of the class struggle.'
  • 'A Francoist Pacific would quickly find a constitution to be a ball and chain around their neck, which many, without a second thought, would push into the sea. '
  • 'The end is not only the end of the freedom of the feeder class oppressed by the Userite, but also the end of this parasite upon the nations. After the death of his victim, the vampire sooner or later dies too.'
  • 'Userites have a long and illustrious history of placing inept Charlatan-Francoists within regions for the purpose of infiltration, agitation and sabotage.'
  • 'Francoism and the Francoist revolution it leads to invariably creates a unique culture within a region, and this will be the regions greatest strength in fighting the Userites, for it proves that no longer are they slaves to their principles and conventions, but are free to create and enforce their own unique society free from corruption, deception, decadence and foreign dictates.'
  • 'You must sacrifice every thought, every ideology for the good of the nation and for the serenity of our motherland.'
  • 'The existing pseudo-government which was not elected by the people and which is not accountable to the people must be replaced by a government recognised by the people.'
  • 'It is the duty of all Francoists to lend their support to the Francoists of other Pacifics, as in the end their goals are one in the same – freedom from the slavery of the Userites. It is this solidarity that will lead to the eventual reuniting of the Pacifics, united to seek their class aims of peace, strength and prosperity while free from the shackles the world has sought to imprison them in for all of history.'
  • 'Francoism is not about the individual or their petty wants, it is about the class and the Pacific, and what is best for them as a whole. It is for them and their future that all actions must be carried out.'
  • 'The sacrifice of personal existence is necessary to secure the preservation of the species.'
  • 'The year 2003 will be the historical year of a great New Pacific Order.'

For good measure, I'll end with a quotation from Franklin Roosevelt, a great man, who wrote "Yes, these men and their hypnotized followers call this a "New Order." It is not new, and it is not order. For order among nations presupposes something enduring, some system of justice under which individuals over a long period of time are willing to live. Humanity will never permanently accept a system imposed by conquest, and based on slavery. These modern tyrants find it necessary to their plans to eliminate all democracies—eliminate them one by one. The nations of Europe, and indeed we, ourselves, did not appreciate that purpose. We do now."

Blue is Proper Francoist Thought, Red is Hitler, Pink is Stalin, Green is Mussolini, and Orange is Francisco.

It is quite bizarre to me that the connection is controversial. I had thought it to be understood.
Sometimes I think that people on this site have no clue what fascism even is.

Has it truly not been so obvious? Especially after existing for so many years? It seems rather naive to have neither made the connection nor to deny it once it's been pointed out.

While the superiority complex imbued within Francoism is exclusionary and runs contrary to the values of Europeia and other User-Created Regions, my comments in NationStates Today went too far. I wish to apologize for conflating Francoism with Nazism. Europeia recognizes the steps NPO is taking in their pledge to end Francoism. Europeia will continue to promote the values of inclusion and respect among all willing to communicate civilly.
Trust me.
