"My friend likes foreigners. She hasn't seen natural red hair before.

But you're the one who can speak in English and Spanish, not Mikura. Are you fine being a translator in dates?

I like books and ideas more than people. And I didn't have much friends so I spent all my free time reading. I'd just sooner be here than with my mother.

You're quite blunt. And I can relate.

Relate in what?

Why that we're both avoiding our mothers."

-Tsuneko Nagi and José Zorilla, 2010
El Ducado de Las Palmeras /The Duchy of Las Palmeras

"In an organized debate, refusing to acknowledge a point or argument raised by the opposing speaker is equivalent to conceding their point."

-- Prof. Landon Pennington, Frieburg University.




Fatatatutti wrote:"In a free society you don't need a gun to protect yourself from your neighbour."
-- Mickey Chang


"Mr. Chang, even in the most free and open society there will be criminals who seek to harm and victimize their neighbors. If a member of such a society chooses to place his life entirely in the hands of professional law enforcement, that is his right. If on the other hand he should choose to protect it himself, by maintaining a weapon for his own defense, that is also his right, and it is his right alone to make that choice. Nobody else gets a say. Apart from that, it isn't really a question of need. If a free person wants to own a firearm, they have that right as a free person and have no obligation to justify their choice to anybody else, least of all to their government. If they have the desire and the means to see it met, simply, it will be met."

-- Julissa Hickman, Citizen.
Man exists for his own sake, and not to add a laborer to the State.

"You know, the race they call 'Humanity'... they can never get along. The screaming monkeys always shout and fight each other about something... usually worthless. Now, fighting back because someone tried to steal your purse or punch you in the face is commendable. I'm talking about ideologies, religion, tradition; it's mostly just a waste of time. Why kill for something that only exists in your head? Isn't that the definition of insanity?"

“No weapon is a defensive weapon, Ms. Escrow. Any device meant to cause harm is a weapon. Defense relies on the mind of the wielder. A firearm is just a heavy piece of clockwork until someone decides to load it and use it. When an insane man has one and decides to use one, we still won’t be able to trust the five sane men around him that don’t have it to protect us until they are able to use one of their own. Authority is not present everywhere, Ms. Escrow, and the common citizen must take the responsibility of one’s own authority into their own hands if they want to be truly safe.”

"It is an unfortunate fact that when left to their own devices, people will inevitably end up hurting either themselves or others. Thus, it is necessary to restrict what people can do, to ensure that they do not cause any damage. Freedom is a nice concept, but in reality it does more harm than good."

"'Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.' Let's take that a step further: 'Those who would give up others' Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety for themselves, are thieves and assholes."

-Random university student

"Liberalism (not the perverted kind) is but an aberration of traditional governance, and can lead to decadence if overused. Authoritarianism is but a step backwards in social progress, and can lead to resentment in the long run. Clearly there must be a balance."

Uses certain NS stats.

Atlantis is an MT nation that is the third richest country in the world, behind only China and the United States. It is closer to the USA, UK, Italy and Spain (in that order, though Italy and Spain is probably tied) culturally than it is Greece. It is also a naval power.

And no, Atlantis is not underwater: It has a land area around the size of France.

Pros: Classical liberalism, democracy, the West, Brexit, Viktor Orban, free education, strong military
Cons: Authoritarianism, fascism, communism, multiculturalism, Islamism
