Also I'm against Asians tend to use corporal punishment for discipline in not saying it's right or wrong but it interferes with parenting sovereignty obviously a line of abuse exist but different cultures do different things

This is an absolute travesty of nonsense, my dear Ambassadors! Look, I can understand the reasoning behind it, but this is in extremely poor quality. Perhaps you should re-evaluate and re-write it. And yes, it is indeed a cultural thing. We may not like it, but sometimes, the more rebellious children just need a little spank to set them straight.
- Lead Ambassador Germaine Moira “Mercy” Sylvia Angelina Zoe Sophia Jen Alanna Hailie Constance

The human bit doesn't make sense. Why is there such a very evaluative definition on that? It is rather irrelevant, isn't it, when you can extend it to non-human species?

60s Music WA Ambassador Chad Microwave has commented that if this resolution came to vote, he would vote against it immediately, saying, "This is not an issue that should require a worldwide ruling, nor is corporal punishment something that should be banned in the first place. Yeah, parents shouldn't be allowed to beat their kids to death for the pettiest little things, but I got whupped quite a bit as a kid and I've turned out fine. I don't whup my son, but that's only because he's a good kid, not because I don't believe in it. Parents should be allowed to grab their kids and give them a good spanking if they do something really stupid, like smash a bunch of glass jars for no reason or beat up their sister."

He then turned and looked at the actual text of the resolution. "Does this mean my uncle isn't human just because he lost two or three toes in an accident? And does it mean my high school classmate who had a foot amputated isn't human either?"

"Regulating spanking , a punishment that leaves no lasting physical evidence beyond temporary redness at best, in the private home sounds like an excellent way to encourage unsubstantiated accusations impossible to verify. If you think the current climate of sexual misconduct accusations concerning, having children making similar claims against family members, whether or not true, will be much, much worse. Opposed."

There are many concerning items in this proposal, none of which have to do with the act of corporal punishment itself. Please look at Section 1.4 :

4. Hereby establishes the WA-CPPREA (World Assembly Corporal Punishment Prohibition Resolution Enforcement Agency) which shall be allowed to establish a seperate unit in the police forces of a WA nation upon approval by said member nation and decision of the WA-CPPREA which shall handle judicial corporal punishment cases.


Even having the option to allow an extragovernmental agency to have oversight and judicial powers over the citizernry of any sovergn nation is abhorrent and a gross over-reach of WA powers.

Yes, Section 1.4 does say “upon approval by said member nation” allowing nations to opt-in or opt-out of the oversight, however, this should not be an option at all as it allows for what has already been stated.

The next concerning bit comes from Section 1.5 and 1.6

5. URGES that member states create a special agency to monitor caning in home environments, keeping surveillance ONLY to a minimum so as to respect privacy of parents,
6. MANDATES that member states monitor parents during their caning to avoid unbearable pain, also mandating that house caning comprising of more than 11 strokes shall require medical attention for the child caned.


Any monitoring within a non-public sector is a breach of privacy and shows no respect for the concept of privacy in any light, boarding on Tolterterianism. Add to this, forcing a child who is being punished to be watched and viewed by either a governmental or extragovenmental agency is far more harmful to the child’s psyche than any reasonable punishment would be.

The entirety of Section 3 falls under the gross breach of privacy that Sections 1.5 and 1.6 fall under.

Opposed. As a father myself, I have had to apply the firm slap of an open hand to my 2 year old child's bottom on a few occasions. At that age, the child is obstinate, irrational, illogical, unreasonable, emotional..." silently reads ahead in his script, "Ah, yes, here we are: And thinks it's appropriate to announce to the entire household that he has once again pooed in the toilet. Yes I do indeed have my correct speech. You would not believe how much alike my argument and my journal on personal feelings on dealing with the WA use the same words. Anyway, one day while in the kitchen, my two year old posed an interesting moral dilemma to me: would I as a parent, is it better to knowingly resort to an act that will cause a slight physical harm, or let someone unknowingly take a course of action that will harm him. Naturally, I reached the logical conclusion of "GREAT GOOGALLY MOOGALLY MY BABY IS REACHING FOR A RED HOT STOVE BURNER!" With haste I removed the child from the danger, firmly spanked him so that he did have some association with the desire to touch the stove and pain, and endured 10 minutes of my child's crying plus another thirty of a glare at me for the harm and the next morning we played blocks. Now, the sprat never again reached for the stove, and I'd like to think it was do to my quick thinking and downplay my possible disqualification from Father of the year, but the situation needs a damned quick solution and I didn't have time to alert authorities of the spanking squad.

As a parent, I cannot find anything of merit in your proposal that can justify its further intrusions into home life. Liberimery stands opposed to this attempt to maximize read tape.

Noting the extreme pain caused by corporal punishment,

Further noting that psychological research states that corporal punishment may cause negative effects in people who are caned, with psychological effects being more severe on children,

Seeking to regulate or minimise the unneeded suffering caused by corporal punishment,

Hereby for the purposes of this resolution defines

  1. “Corporal punishment” shall define the administration of physical pain or discomfort as a punishment,
    ——
    1. Also noting that it may be refered to “Hitting”, “Caning”, “Spanking”, or other terms hereby clarifies that if legislating in
      1. home environments, the term “spanking” shall be used.[/tab]
      2. judicial environments or other environments, the term “corporal punishment” shall be used.
  2. Corporal device as a device for or set of pieces assembled with the purpose of administration of corporal punishment.
  3. “Administration” as the act of conducting the task of corporal punishment on any living being.
  4. ”Child”, “Children”, or “Minor”, as a human not considered an adult any living being that has not reached the age of majority,
Further,

CHAPTER 1. GENERAL
  1. Mandates the regulation of Corporal Punishment or Spanking in all Lands of WA Members by respective governments. This resolution already pretty flagrantly does this regulation without you needing to magically will it into existence.
  2. Clarifies that self-defense by methods of hitting or other physical means involving physical pain will stay legal in this WA resolution and not regulated etc. by all provisions of this Resolution.
  3. This resolution shall apply to all embassies and territories of all WA member nations. All WA resolutions apply to all WA member nations. This does not need to be stated here.
  4. Hereby establishes the WA-CPPREA (World Assembly Corporal Punishment Prohibition Resolution Enforcement Agency) which shall be allowed to establish a seperate unit in the police forces of a WA nation upon approval by said member nation and decision of the WA-CPPREA which shall handle judicial corporal punishment cases Why can individual nations not be trusted with doing so themselves?, and may be free to investigate any case of corporal punishment BUT ONLY WITH THE PERMISSION FROM THE PRESIDENT BUT WHAT IF YOUR NATION HAS A MULTI-MEMBER RULING COMMITTEE OR IS AN ANARCHY? OF SAID MEMBER NATION. Yeah, I can see where allowing member nations to decide if they want the WA-CPPREA to investigate them is gonna lead... :eyebrow:
  5. URGES that member states create a special agency to monitor caning in home environments, keeping surveillance ONLY to a minimum and only doing such surveillance with consent of the kid and parent Again, who will probably deny it so as to respect privacy of parents,
  6. MANDATING that caning of over 11 strokes shall require medical attention for the child caned. How will this work, and why 11 strokes and not a nice, round 10 or 12? Why do you then go on to regulate The Divine Attention of St. Medical depending on which material is used in corporal punishment in section 8?
  7. Spanking in home environments shall be controlled by a special agency which may be created by any member state shall it’s government desire to do so. Are you trying to make this mandatory or recommended?

    CHAPTER 2. CANING METHODS

    2. To avoid scars from being created from such corporal punishment.
  12. Caning shall be unauthorised on the following groups:

    2. anyone suffering from neurological/psychological diseases or has been cleared of such diseases within one year of such caning (e.g someone who was cured of said disease on October 1 2018 can be caned on October 2, 2019 How will such a "disease" be defined?),

  14. In family homes and schools, there shall be at least one caning room where all caning shall be conducted and no one shall be allowed to watch You're driving me up the wall here! Didn't you tell us in Section 10 that "[a]ll caning shall be monitored by at least two WA-CPPREA monitoring officers?" so as to avoid caning of the child.

WA-CPPREA may override the decision and block the release, but cannot override the voting to yes.
    2. In the case of social media release approval, the post shall only be readable by friends In the real world or on social media? Whose friends? and the CEO of the social media site Erm, ever heard of "software engineers" or "coders?"

((OOC: As a woman, I’m feeling pretty damn insulted by article 12. We are NOT fragile butterflies who can’t comprehend what corporal punishment is. And I know damn well that if given a choice between a caning and an extended stay in jail, I’d choose the cane. It’s just less cruel.))
Trust Factbooks, not stats.

The Ambassador of Essu Beti is Iksana Gayan and he's an elf. He’s irritable and a damn troll and everything he says is IC only. I would never be so tactless OOC.

National News Radio: A large-scale infrastructure project will soon be underway. During this time, for safety reasons, the island will be closed to tourists and foreign news agents. We do expect a minor loss in revenue due to this, but this will be greatly offset by both the long and short-term benefits of the infrastructure project. If your job is negatively impacted by the island closure, please send a letter or verbal message via courier to the Council so that we can add you to the list of beneficiaries of foreign aid.

OOC: There already is a resolution banning child abuse, so this would mean any regulations on corporeal punishment could only be such applying to adults. Cutting out everything to do with children will shorten the text, too. Aside from that I think it's unnecessary micromanagement and about as sane as telling member nations what flavours of toothpaste they can or cannot have.

Also, please don't use "blocktext" code; it squishes up the text unnecessarily. If you must separate it from the rest of the post, put it inside the box code.
