A draft for a proposal to protect artistic expression

Postby Valenic » Fri Jan 19, 2018 1:05 pm

The World Assembly,

Realizes the importance of art and artistic expression in the growth of many nations and cultures.

Recognizes the need for some art to be restricted as to not come into contact with an inappropriate audience

Believes that everyone should have the right to express them selves in either the creation or consumption of art.

The general assembly...

1. Establishes a set of regulations to protect artistic expression
a)Member nations are prohibited from putting unneeded restricts on the creation of art.
b)Member nations cannot put a national ban on a piece of art because of it's content or an ideology it represents.
c) Member nations maintain the ability to restrict a piece of art because it's content may be inappropriate or immoral
d) Member nations are prohibited from unneeded restriction of a piece of art
2. any member nations not found to be in accordance of these regulations will receive appropriate consequences.




Is this proposal legal

Category? Strength?

B and C are contradictory. It is illogical to tell somebody they cannot ban or censor something because of content, then turn around and tell them they can.

A and D are duplicates. reworded.

2 is so vague as to be nearly humorous.

What is "art" in one culture may be considered trash, literally, in another. Is it really the place of the WA to issues mandates on what art is or isn't? If I were to stand on a street corner decapitating live chickens, and proclaimed it to be "performance art" would it really be? Or just somebody trying to get around health laws governing meat markets?

This is why "one size fits all" proposals regarding many topics, art included, will never be anything more than just one persons opinion. Art is too subjective.

World Assembly Resolution #30 Freedom of Expression already covers this fairly throughtly
You might consider focusing on artist's moral rights

"In the believing clause, "themselves" is one word not two."
A representative democracy with a parliament of 535 seats
Currently centre-right on economy but centre-left on social issues
Located in Europe and border France to the right and Spain below
NS stats and policies are not canon, use the factbooks
Not in the WA despite coincidentally following all resolutions
This is due to a problem with how the WA contradicts our democracy
However we do have a WA mission and often participate in drafting
Current ambassador: James Lewitt

For more information, read the factbooks here.
