[DRAFT] Condemn New Ducklands

Postby Fahran » Tue May 29, 2018 8:02 am

The Security Council,

NOTING that New Ducklands, affectionately known as Duckai, has a storied history in the regions of Rossferry and Elparia

ACKNOWLEDGING Duckai's history of egregious violations against region-mates including the sabotaging of diplomatic overtures, the oppression of tankies, and a coup launched in December of 2017 that horribly destabilized the region of Elparia, resulting in the mass exile of Duckai's political opponents and a collapse in the region's ability to recruit or provide a lively atmosphere for its citizens

OBSERVING that Duckai staged a series of coups across as many as twenty different regions with the stated purpose of growing Elparia, destroying numerous vibrant communities in the process

BELIEVING that such behavior deserves the sternest possible response from this hallowed international body even in light of Duckai's trial, penance, and recent appointment as Minister of the Interior in the government of Elparia

REJOICING that the citizens of Elparia were able to restore the legitimate government and expand into a burgeoning, diverse community inclusive to all regardless of political opinion, physical disability, mental health status, or other such differences

CONCLUDING that Duckai has been very naughty

HEREBY CONDEMNS New Ducklands.

REALIZING that the author of this resolution has gleefully confessed to perceiving condemnation as a reward and is in all probability proposing this resolution to bask in the notoriety it will bring

AFFIRMING that the author's dubious intentions detract neither from the numerous loathsome crimes committed by Duckai according to the Elparian constitution and the accepted universal norms of regional life nor the moral obligation of the Security Council to condemn such perfidious misdeeds

HEREBY CONDEMNS New Ducklands.

Things you should add:
He did allegedly coup over 20 regions with small populations to inhibit growth and forcibly grow Elparia

I'll consider adding it to a new draft as soon as I get additional recommendations, supposing you can provide some credible evidence of these allegations. Thank you.

Personally I'm not sure there's enough here to warrant a condemnation, especially since the issue seems rather internal. That being said:
Fahran wrote:REALIZING that the author of this resolution has gleefully confessed to perceiving condemnation as a reward and is in all probability proposing this resolution to bask in the notoriety it will bring

If you leave this clause in, I'll warn you that it would probably be enough for Delegates to shoot this proposal down. If I saw a proposal where the author admits to being a badge hunter or proposing this to preen their feathers, there's no way in hell I'd approve or vote for it.

But since you admitted your intentions anyway, I imagine this won't make it very far whether you keep the clause in or not.

This is a fair criticism and one I've lodged against prior resolutions concerning matters internal to particular regions. I leave it up the SC to determine whether these behaviors warrant a condemnation. That said, I'm inclined to point out that subsequent drafts may include destructive behaviors towards around twenty small regions.

I'd like to clarify that I'm by no means a badge hunter in the traditional sense. There's been a quiet consensus within the region that an effort to condemn Duckai should take place at some point. I do not consider this an altogether serious or pressing matter in light of the fact that the situation has been resolved. So, while the resolution itself isn't strictly speaking serious, I would argue the behaviors that the condemnation was motivated by do demand some sort of response. As far as I'm concerned, I'm just practicing my resolution-writing. I will consider withdrawing that bit though.

My intentions were more tongue-in-cheek as I clarified above. If you're going to oppose the resolution, you must oppose the lulz. All the same, I understand that response well enough. Thank you for your kind response and your constructive criticism.

The word "his" is a Rule 4(b) violation. As are the words "he", "him", etc etc. Don't include those in your proposal. As to the clause Alkasia pointed out, yeah no support on those grounds from me.

Addressed in so far as it is possible. Thank you for the criticism.

I don’t see a justified reason for this condemnation. Condemnations shouldn’t be used for small affairs that have no impact on the larger stage. Opposed.

Fair enough. Given the abundant criticism and opposition, I'll be inclined to abandon this SC resolution in the interest of conserving SC time should support not materialize within a couple days. Thank you for your contributions.

It was more or less a joke resolution to practice my writing. The bits in the draft about me maliciously abusing the process were for comedic effect as well, but somebody... *glares at Alkasia* doesn't like fun. I'll probably try to write some serious resolutions in the future given that we probably need a liberation in one or two historic regions, but that'll have to wait until I can muster the energy.

I personally think the term "tankies" is informal. You may want to change it.
