[Withd'n] Repeal “Nuclear Arms Possession Act” (by Old Hope)

Postby Imperium Anglorum » Tue Jun 08, 2021 7:38 am

Verbatim.

Reassured that General Assembly Resolution 418 allows the possession of nuclear arms whilst containing a more nuanced protection requirement,
Alarmed that this resolution contains the catastrophic phrase "every avaliable precaution to ensure", a phrase that does not take the reasonableness of these precautions into account(in relation to other needed spending and likelyhood of necessity),
Convinced that the priority of precautions regarding nuclear arms should be high, but not cause the nation into a spiral of excessive spending and debt,

the World Assembly repeals General Assembly Resolution 10, Nuclear Arms Possession Act.

What a terrible format, terrible argument, and terrible waste of the Assembly's time. It's been campaigned by this telegram, which I received a few minutes ago. Apparently punctuation, capitalisation, spelling, and spacing are for low-IQ plebs like me.

Esteemed delegates,

The Nuclear Arms Possession Act is an extremely flawed piece of legislation that does not factor in any affected nation's wealth and capacity to spend, but rather makes the demand that member nations make "every precaution avaliable to ensure", a demand that has no upper limit on spending.
General Assembly Resolution 418 protects the rights of member nations to have nuclear weapons because non-member nations exist and nuclear weapons are unfortunately needed and it makes more balanced demands on the security of nuclear weapons, which should be quite high.

Please approve the proposal by clicking the below link and then "Approve". Your assistance once this resolution goes to vote would be greatly appreciated, too

Thank you for reading.

I automatically support all resolutions of this title. While a complete (or at best near-complete) ban on nuclear weapons would be preferably, most if not all of GA#10 has been superceded by Safeguarding Nuclear Materials.

Mainly what I'm wondering is if the tg was sent with stamps or API, or neither. If it was neither, it would only be tagged as a campaign. API would have tag:api and tag:delegates. Stamps would be just tag:delegates.

Was sent via stamps to tag:delegates, marked properly as a campaign telegram.

Ah. At this point, stuck at 8 approvals after a stamp TG, this may actually fail to reach quorum, without any counter-campaign or quorum raids. A sight that I have not seen in my time.

"this is terrible"

not a single reason why, except unexplained accusations of bad grammar.

If you want me to withdraw this you need to improve your arguments.

Here's an argument against- How the fuck would it be required that a nation go into excessive spending and debt to comply with NAPA?

Edit: Also, NAPA has not been made redundant either. In other words, all of your arguments are complete bogus. Please withdraw this so you don't waste the Assembly's valuable time.

In accordance with our delegation's announced policy of June 29, 2005, we will be voting in favor of this repeal. However we are honor-bound to point out that the words "avaliable" and "likelyhood" are misspelled in the quorate proposal, there should be a space in between "account" and the opening parenthesis, and the phrase "cause the nation into a spiral of excessive spending and debt" lacks a verb.
