Littering

Postby Dorsla » Wed May 22, 2019 2:57 pm

We need to illegalize littering! The future of the planet depends on it! If we continue to litter, we will no longer have a place to call home. :mad:

(OOC: Welcome to the General Assembly. Unfortunately, this isn’t really what the GA is about, and doesn’t look like what is typically expected here. This is more of a bumper sticker or a blog post title than a piece of international law. I strongly recommend having a look at some passed resolutions to receive inspiration. Looking at the rules could also be helpful.)
A representative democracy with a parliament of 535 seats
Kenmoria is Laissez-Faire 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 nearly all resolutions
This is due to a problem with how the WA contradicts democracy
However we do have a WA mission and often participate in drafting
Current ambassador: James Lewitt

For more information, read the factbooks here.

I was originally going to suggest a law to illegalize littering, but it was deleted.

Our planet will soon perish if we are to do nothing to save it. It is imperative that we establish and manifest a law that mandates all citizens of race, class, or criminal history to but trash in the bins properly, and to use the recyclable items in a new way. Those who fail to abide by this law will be fined, and, if caught again, will serve two years in one of their nation's penitentiaries after forgoing a trial to find out if the law-breaching was intentional. Those who are imprisoned for this reason will be required to perform community service on Monday to Thursday every week. The majority of the service requirements are to pick up trash throughout their city of residence, invent products useful to the world out of the reusable materials, and help to install security cameras along the trash cans and recycling bins to ensure that this misdeed will not go unpunished.
If a former prisoner of litter is once again found littering, another trial will take place and, if found guilty, the citizen will serve four years in prison under the same conditions. If found littering again and being found guilty, the citizen's sentence will double again. This process will continue if the citizen is not to stop littering.
No sole individual is to use their money, status of class, past criminal activity, race, or politically involvement to defend themselves in court, and the evidence will be analyzed by engineer software. This will ensure that everyone has an equal chance of being found innocent or guilty in court. Whether or not the convict is allowed parole will be determined by the extent of their crime.

Littering is hardly an international issue.

OOC: I'm sorry, but I couldn't get further than this before bursting out laughing. Even in RL the Planet Earth will be fine, whatever we little fleas on its surface do or don't do. Human species cannot destroy the planet. We can disturb the ecosystem, but we can't kill all life from its surface. We probably can't even kill most life from its surface, though we can fairly easily make it very difficult for our own species to continue surviving on it with the level of civilization we currently have.

However, littering is the least of the ecosystem's worries (and yes, yes, I know of the Pacific Trash Vortex and microplastic problems worldwide, I'm still standing behind this claim and can back it up with links if necessary) and something that is absolutely best tackled on a very local level, at most on national one.

Also, "our planet" is either RL reference (a rules violation) or a RP reference (in which case most WA peeps are going to go "well that's your problem, deal with it on your own planet first".

Coronavirus related. This too. And this. These are all jokes. This isn't. This is, again, but it's also the last one.
Apologies for absences, RL has been hectic, nothing to do with COVID-19, I'm just busy with other things than NS.

Are you sure? Can you imagine squads of gnomes out running around handing out tickets for littering? The WA could make a fortune in fine revenue. :p

IC (wow, this is the first): Our government is already making good money off of fining people for littering.

Please look at the rules of WA and GA proposals first before writing a draft. Most importantly, all proposals must be written as laws, and the real world must not be mentioned.

Well, there is that ...

Think we could use the fines to pay off the senior ambassadors bar tabs?

I do believe most of the fines would be paying towards international subscriptions for Autodesk SketchUp. It's a purely non-profit effort.
