Interesting history lesson there, I might have slept through it.

---------------------------

Chess. It's quite brutal if you think about it. The pawns act as death fodder, so does your knights, bishops, rooks and queen. The only thing that's any value is the king somehow. Like, does he even join the battle during the openings and middle games?

Anyways, what is your next move?

President Hermanson wrote:Having read the article, I am surprised that your argument in favor of the death penalty is dependent entirely on the notion that no other means is sufficient to punish people. You have failed to establish the need for a justice system to punish in the first place. Rehabilitation of inmates and protection of the general populace are both more justifiable uses of imprisonment. After all, isn't the point of punishment in itself to act as a deterrent? Executing Nazi war criminals did nothing to discourage Neo-Nazism today, despite the publicity. Most executions in the modern era have even less publicity, so they can't possibly be more effective deterrents.

Besides, your point about "valuing the life of criminals over their victims" is ludicrous. Executing a murderer would do nothing to bring back the victim, so why waste taxpayer dollars on trying to level some arbitrary cosmic scale without proving that it objectively exists? After all, the Death Penalty, in its American form, wastes more taxpayer dollars than a life sentence without parole. Did you know that The United States of America proves itself to value the lives of the innocent above those of the guilty every time a violent criminal takes hostages? Yes, they prefer the easy route of trying to persuade the hostage-taker to not harm any hostages, but, when negotiations fail, SWAT units risk their own lives to save hostages - often killing the perpetrator in the process.

"Operation Ligma? Really? Motherfucker. Get a funnier name, asshole!"

- President of the Russian Federation Nikolai A. Suvorov, Russian 'Liberal Dictator'





"Now, tell me. Tell me, oh, all of Russia; What are we fighting for? Why are we fighting? What do we hope to accomplish? We stand at the gates of Europe, China, and the Global Liberation Army. Caucasia is surrounded by a thousand guns. The warriors of the Caucasus cry out "They're here! Brace yourself!" And defeat is in the eyes of Vladivostok. There are a hundred, million, and a billion lies and ways of telling you "We will survive!" Now, tell me... What are we fighting for? I feel Russia's pain and anger over lives lost, and, nobody can escape the terror that awaits us. But... we will never give up. Russia knows. These fools can't erase our inner flame. When I look at this war, I think of retreat. I think of giving up. But, when I look back, I see the soldiers of the Russian Federation. Young men fighting for a homeland. Fighting for a dream. So, tell me; How does this end? Will we live to see morning again? In the cabinet, fear is in every breath... Sweat and blood paint my hands. 'Will nobody save us?' The Prime Minister asks. But... we are not going to die here. That's what we're fighting for. I do not wish to wake up to chaos. I do not wish to wake up to crying. I do not want to wake up to explosions. I do not want to see rooftops flying. I will not stand for silence. Russia is trapped under rubble. Our senses, fading to war. We sacrifice men to the shadow of death, but it's too little. Europe expects our countdown to annihilation. What do we want? No more fear. No more crying. No more living under lies. So, again, tell me; How does this end? What are we fighting for? I-We-All, All of us are fighting for Russia. For a sense of normalcy. That's what I'm fighting for. That's what we're fighting for. That's what we all fight for. Russia will continue to fight. Even if ashes are all that remain of the Federation."

- President of the Russian Federation Nikolai A. Suvorov, rallying Russian troops during the offensive on Belarus, 2023.

"I can't quite say that your elucidation is entirely accurate. Rather, I would describe pacifism as a complete and utter moral debasement disguised as morality. Pacifists have all the boundless courage and strength of a small rabbit facing a hungry fox. It's quite pusillanimous. But if they were merely completely spineless, that would be one thing. It is entirely possible to deal with spineless knaves. But pacifism serves to distort this. Under pacifism, cravenness is portrayed as virtue, timorousness as honor. Pacifism becomes a scutum for the weak willed, a battlement for those afraid of battle. The entire philosophy is built to portray worthlessness as moral superiority. But it is worse still than that. Pacifism's main tenants are completely at odds with reality itself. A truly pacifist society cannot survive - they will quickly be conquered, enslaved, or slaughtered. Violence, regardless of one's opinions on it, is a reality of life. Bloodshed, war, and killing are in the nature of existence. Pacifists are blind to very basic truths of reality, and thus cannot be truly reasoned with. I know not what reality pacifists live in, but in this reality, it is kill or be killed. Any pacifist hiding behind their hollow virtue is only able to do so because another is killing on their behalf."

Is it possible that in the far future, we all agree into passivism? Maybe but I wouldn't bet my left ballsack on doing it now because il end up loosing said ballsack. How about militant pacifism? Which is well, not necessarily pacifism but its better than being an agressive [redacted british C-word] from a moral standpoint. At the end of the day I believe in the right to self defense.

The incident was so horrendous that one of the members of the royal family died of a heart attack. Still somehow in good terms with her majesty, she invited me to the late prince's funeral and I saw an adult movie van pass by, and I made a joke about that van being the hearse. And thats how I got banned from that country.

I've got the Alliance Rep and the fucking Letians demanding his ass on a plate tomorrow and we do not want that to happen.

No, we can't disappear him right now. He disappears on our side of the pond and the Alliance is going to start asking hard questions we can't answer. We need him in Inkla-Jsuit Territory yesterday. Why? because we don't have an extradition treaty with them... actually no one does... which means the Alliance Rep is going to have to go to a board to get one on the draft and then pass it over to them to sign after some talking and shit. A month at least and a year at most.

Which will mean we have some time to think of a plan. No, I am not making this up as I go, there was a process it was complicated now get him on the rail NOW."

"As the Americans learned so painfully in this century, democracy is ever so vulnerable to such described parasitical forces and corruption, and much to their lament, they found that no amount of purges, no amount of mob violence, and no amount of politicking ever fully rid them of such scourges. For what is democracy but representation of ALL interests in a society?

It doesn't matter how ever you may try and limit who is more equal than others, for those who have been silenced; regardless of whether it be for the good of all or for tyranny's sake; will not only always find a way to make their voices heard, but also to take what they desire.

No amount of Demagoguery or populist dreaming will unite a people who have been told to fight for themselves, you must offer a single vision and a single way to achieve it for them to rally to, not a consensus of visions. And for us Mamano, our vision is that of Love Eternal, achieved through faith to our God, and faith in the powers that we Mamano have been blessed with to make it so.

One vision, One purpose. Peace through Love."



- Inquisitrix Lady Belnazzar, Chief Advisor to Grand Crusader Dathrohan



"This is no one's fault but your own. You do understand that, right El Presidente?"
"I understood my people once. They were a righteous people, standing tall with pride in the institutions their forefathers built, with respect for the inalienable rights of their countrymen, with faith in their party leaders, a belief in the will of the people, and the balls to defend such freedom. I understand now that those people are gone, either replaced by or beholden to these depraved whores of yours who have sapped their machismo and fighting spirit with their honeyed words and empty promises."
"We Mamano were never bound by such human follies and this obsession with the collective consensus. We moved beyond that when the Maou ascended to her throne, bringing us up alongside her. Your people have moved beyond such things as well, they just don't realize it yet. You are witnessing merely a small part of the grand wedding of our races into one divine people, now whether or not you live to see the consummation of it..."
"You think you can break me? You might as well save your breath and kill me now, as even in death I will never kneel to you whorish monster sluts!"
"Such slurs are unbecoming of you El Presidente. If I didn't know better, I would almost say that your trying to provoke me, but don't worry, you won't be dying for a long, loooooong time if you're wife has anything to say about it. And given what she has told us about your... arranged "marriage" to her, that she actually loved you and still does after monsterization is a testament to the fact that love, like us, conquers all. I'll be seeing you after your honeymoon dear..."

"A waterpark of blood... and you actually admit to this in public? Way to make yourself into an infamous villain in global public opinion. We are perfectly aware that certain incidents require certain measures, but publicising them like that is just stupid. Internal and external reputation are things that need careful managing. Our own police has a reputation of brutality and ruthlessness, my military one of professionalism and savagery, and these things are useful, sure, but overall we managed to be seen as a global force of order since the times of my hallowed ancestors. Our statesmen always managed to do both, solve problems as they require wehile ostensibly keeping their hands clean. We have solved the kurdish question and the Al-Afghan rebellion, one with integration and the other with diphosgene, and both facts are known and serve to establish the message we desire. There are problems that require a scimitar and there are others that require a scalpel. Maybe you should take a leaf from the book of our one-time spanish allies; I even met the Caudillo once as a child, now that was a man who knew what was what."

"Tell that to the many nations liberated in WW2. If the allies hadn't given smaller nations like ourselves a second life, there's a high likelihood that we'd consider atrocities as common place."

"Leaders over the years have stated that they'll die for their nation, however the need for that has passed in this time of uneasy peace. However, I will say this: I will sacrifice life and limb for the well-being of my people."


"That I can respect. In fact, in the Aber, it is better to die with honor than to live with the life-long, gut-wrenching dread of not being there when your country needed it."


"Here I stand, amidst an air of uncertainty,
Glancing at the growing society of my flesh.
The rate at which they populate the great icy dunes infinity,
The desire to keep our thriving legacy fresh."

"Here I stand, amidst the ambition of the tribes, turning to kingdoms, and such,
To one homogenous, powerful, and (hopefully) united empire.
The futures of their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren they clutch,
A promise that the fire that fuels their hopes and actions never retire."

"Here I stand, amidst a people who have started small,
From prominent hunter-gatherers to well-deserving aristocrats, indeed.
Where the capital of our lands will be capped with the Great Hall,
Where the strong will defend, attack, follow and lead."

quite honestly amazed
”Wait… You mean to say that this piece of poetry has survived for more than 5.000 years and can still be read and understood by your people… That’s, quite honestly, a peculiar tale of survival… Or a fake! Pardon me if I may sound offensive, but during my time as an archivist at the Central Archive I’ve seen way too many “true and only” pieces of the Christ’s crosses, only to be made around 1400 AD (thank you radiocarbon analysis). Have you cross-referenced it with archaeological findings? Does it appear in the majority of texts throughout it’s supposed time of existence? I am asking these questions because as an amateur historian I, unfortunately can hardly believe you…

- Heilgarda Davenport-Kaltenbrunnergentsshfelde
"Yes yes yes I ordered the strike on Fenwick tower. Yes, I know that 10 million slaves and merely 700 thousand slavers died, do I Care? No, I don’t. Killing 10 millions to prevent hundreds of millions from enslave,ent is a worthy trade off to me. Moreover, it saved the lives of many good men… Men who would’ve otherwise been killed storming the tower and capturing it. I’d declare this a victory."

An autocratic monarchy with elements of aristocracy which is militaristic to the point of suicidal. Nuclear armed ready to use this weapon on any agressor or itself to prevent capture. Ruled over by a combination of medieval-ish thinking of workers and peasants and incredibly hierarchical society. A British-ish colonial empire incorporating some partially democratic nations who just want some WMD’s

"Well... that's a PR failure of such massive proportions that I can scarcely believe that any adjutant didn't speak up about it... but 10.7 million dead? really? did they really just pack themselves up in one area and do literally nothing to stop you?"




"An effective HR and PR department is often just as important as the newest and bestest toys money can buy. While Domestically the Confederate Militaries' reputation is quite rubbed into the dirt, as a barely tolerated but necessary tool of the government, internationally our Military is seen as a middle man for foreign investment as well as healthy construction contracts that tie our geopolitical goals with the common man's (for a given meaning of "common" man) economic benefit.

It's of course not a perfect state of affairs. People aren't robots or stupid enough to not see the strings attached and the potential dangers of welcoming the tiger to fight the bear.

But it's a solid foundation for our boys to build on."

"Toys, money, HR and PR... Is this a state or a corporation? Where is your spirit, your pride? Is your state just an instrument for power and money? Where is the glory in that, where is greatness and ambition? Are your navies vessels not proud manifestations of the skill and effort of your people? Do they not bear the names of the mighty ships that sailed before them against the foe, against those who'd want to destroy what your people have built? Our frigates bear the names that before them did the Dreadnoughts of the Great War and of the War-Galleys of Lepanto and the Battle of Malta! Our regiments can carry the same banners to battle that they carried to Plevne and to Cannakkale, and they can do so secure in the knowledge that the Empire will always be there for them and their families, that their lives will always be valued higher than money or public relations. That never will they have to fear ethnic nationalists and racists on our soil, or religious extremists like the wahhabite terrorists of the House of Saud. Bah, capitalism...profanes everything, filthy moneygrubbers."

"It is always interesting to observe the progress of historical development in other societies. The development of liberalism under the regime of Mustafa V marks an important point in the ideological changes that accompany the economic developments associated with modernity, historical progress away from theocratic tyranny."

"Communism is not a buffet. You cannot pick and choose what 'aspects' of communism suit you, applying this and denying that. No, communism is an organic whole, a collective structural shift into a new form of society. There are not variants of communism, there is only communism and revisionism. Those who deny this are necessarily revisionists and counter-revolutionaries, seeking to dilute the communist project and obscure the whole."

San Horo:If you're wondering why I haven't adressed the opressed proletariat on overthrowing Inogo's bourgeoisie government in the past 3 days, I have issues... I was driving with my wife when we stopped at an intersection, as I was about to make a left turn, a motorcycle came speeding and crashed head on into my car, detonating the airbags and ruining my wife's make up, once the bags and smoke settled, I heard my wife's ear piercing scream. Whats worse, I saw General Tansagar face planted on the windshield, no bloody clothes! And he's a fat old virgin! I had to go to the optician for fucks sake after seeing such a disgusting pile of shit and my wife never had the same smile she used to.

"Eh tough it out, just throw some duct tape on it and you should be fine... probably. I don't know how normal people work all too well anymore. It's kind of something I've had to deal with since I'm surrounded by them nowadays, can't lightly slap a person without worrying about dislocating a soldier or snapping a neck."




"One of the most stressful parts of my job is when I get budget requests for simply inane materials shoved onto my desk... and I... I just can't tell if the requests are pranks or if they are serious.

Do you wanna know how many times I've received requests for an extensively large amount of condoms? two times. That's two more requests than I ever expected to receive when running the equivalent of a publically-funded drug cartel. I don't know why I approved those requests... well that's a lie I know why I approved them, but it just hurts my head to think about why they made it to me in the first place.

How did it get past all my screeners, my secretary, and the bureaucracy surrounding getting paperwork to me?

As for why I approved it... well there was more paperwork surrounding turning it down and I would have to have an uncomfortable meeting about it, that I couldn't possibly sit in with a straight face. Approving it meant someone else has to deal with it."

”There is but a simple solution to your problem, dear- replace your secretary! Replace whoever brings your documents, and probably have them demoted a couple of stages in your ranking system so that they’d replacement would know better not to foul up. Simply put, actually teaching people the way to behave takes a good amount of pain… and punishment. Probably.

"Look- you may be questioning my methods, but dare not to question my personal life! This is bloody outrageous- merely suggesting that I and this abomination of a woman, this wheelchair-ridden cripple who should’ve been put out of her misery long ago Teilga are lovers is idiotic! Like, is she even able to love? I seriously don’t know- I mean her brain is dying and being revived like 5-6 times a week and most of her body is either dead or close to dying, how the hell are we supposed to love each other? I mean, I may be a lesbian as you Americans call it but I’m not perverted enough to be into my lover bring a half-dead corpse!"
