Silly and/or Illegal GA Proposals. zOMG!

Several noteworthy comments:
  • This is not a place to make up horrible proposals for giggles. We have enough of those occurring naturally.
  • WA moderators regularly read this thread, to take advantage of the fact that WA regulars have more time to kill than they do.
  • While WA posters' opinions should not be considered definitive rules judgments, neither should they be belittled.
  • When making new law, anyone can be a lawyer. (But only WA Mods can be judges.)

Given that we may be starting with a clean slate, all ancient illegalities have been archived. Should "The World Assembly" resolution fail to pass, Neo-Anarchists' original thread will be returned to its former position of glory.

MODEDIT: If a silly or illegal proposal already has its own thread elsewhere in this forum, please don't post it in this thread as well.. Post your comments in the proposal's existing thread; that will bump it near enough to the top to be noticed.[/MODEDIT]

As noted on the Jolt thread, I've just done a sweep of the queue. Please post any new ones here.

You can still post them on Jolt too, if you like, but new posters are being directed to this forum, and it's holding up fine.

The official word is that mods "not be heavy-handed about this", but we can "recommend that discussion be relocated to here".

So looka me not being heavy-handed: Hey, guys, all the cool kids post on the Beta forum.

And looka me recommending: Come on in, the water's forum's fine!

Restrict WA interference

Category: Political Stability
Strength: Significant
Proposed by: Piousdom

Description: Description: This proposal is aimed to restrict the amount of interference the WA can exert on the laws of member nations.

Given that:

1- Each nation has its own unique Jurispridence.
2- Each nation has its own unique culture.
3- The aim of the WA is not to erase the uniqueness of every nation

The WA must not enact any laws that restrict the right of a nation to have its own Jurisprdidence, so long as that is not harmful to other nations.
Illegal, pure blocker.

Right to Techonology

A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.


Category: Human Rights
Strength: Mild
Proposed by: Aegara

Description: The WA:

Affirms that it is a basic human right to self improvement

States that the best way of achieving this is by the widespread use and dissemenation of modern technology

Sadly notes that millions of people currently struggle on a subsistence living

Proposes that each member state, with the help of the WA, distributes modern technology to those who grealy need it.


How will technology help said people? Take for example:
"We have a staving family on 134 Spooner St."
"Ok, send them a DVR!"

It would NOT help. What they would need is food and monetary assistance. Not tech assistance.

Ban on Public Proselytism

A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.


Category: Human Rights
Strength: Significant
Proposed by: Buffett and Colbert

Description: AFFIRMING that each individual has the right his or her own faith,

NOTING that one may assume his or her own faith is superior to that of anothers,

UNDERSTANDING that one may want to convert another to another religion, regardless of his or her intentions,

REMINDING that many to not wish to be subject to proselytism from any association or individual visiting another individual's home or handing out flyers, putting up posters, et cetera,

DEFINING "proselytism" as the act of attempting to convert any person from one religion or faith to another through any means,

1. Restricts the advertisment of any faith or faith related object through any means such as, but not limited to:
a. flyers or posters not on private property
b. speeches and rallies given unanounced that
are not on private property
c. advertisments on government funded
television or government funded radio
d. "pop-ups" that appear on the internet,

2. Reassures that on any privately owned property, television stations, radio stations and internet sites, proselytism is legal but does not encourage this if the recipient does not appreciate it,

3. States that no person under the age of maturity in his or her country of residence shall be penalized of proselytism but it is a criminal act to encourage in any way or means a person unde the age of maturtiy to engage in this act in an illegal manner,

4. Defines the maximum punishment for public proselytism is four weeks in jail but encourages this sentence to only be used in extreme cases of this criminal act,

5. Strongly urges all NationStates to adopt this resolution but declares it non-binding as many nations are theocracies or otherwise based on a certain religion.


Illegal for case 5 as resolutions that have passed ARE MANDATORY! But I may be readin it wrong.

International language

A resolution to reduce barriers to free trade and commerce.


Category: Free Trade
Strength: Significant
Proposed by: Bart1meus

Description: Recognizing that:
1. Good translators are expensive and hard to come by.
2. Communication is the key to efficient, effective diplomacy.
3. Natural languages are often associated with one state or group of states.
4. Translations often fail to communicate key nuances and can often be misleading, creating with each phrase the potential for disaster, even bloodshed.

We propose:
1. A neutral, easy to learn lingua franca be adopted by the WA representatives of all nations so as to reduce the chance of unfortunate mistakes, and increase the profitability of all international dialogue.
• That this lingua franca be completely artificial, and thus politically neutral, so as not to favor one people or another by choosing an already existing language.
• That this lingua franca be used exclusively by the WA for official assemblies.


*makes the "Scooby Doo" questioning sound* And Free Trade? I call Mega Illegal due to WRONG FREAKIN' CATEGORY!

Improving life with Education

A resolution to promote funding and the development of education and the arts.


Category: Education and Creativity


Area of Effect: Educational


Proposed by: Kiket

Description: As a nation, we need to have citizens that understand the economic, political, and social aspects of life. With an education, our citizens will has an easier time living.

This also helps the economy by lowering poverty rates and death rates since poverty leads to crimes and other ill-mannered activities.

I propose that:

a. we provide everyone with free education from kindergarten to college.
b. private institutions are outlawed. everyone will be equal whether they're rich or middle-class.
c. colleges will be limited to one field. there will only be one liberal arts college, one education college, one medical college, etc...
d. after the students graduate, their checks will have a 10% deduction for the next ten working years to help fund their country's educational system.

Approvals: 0

Status: Lacking Support (requires 52 more approvals)

Voting Ends: Mon May 18 2009


So we're going to eliminate poverty by taking 10 percent of all checks people write to fund an education? Also would really suck if I want to go to medical school and the 1 college that teaches it is on the other side of the nation...

Gun Control

A resolution to tighten or relax gun control laws.


Category: Gun Control
Decision: Tighten
Proposed by: Chi-Nexico

Description: Number 1, Honestly, I think Police officers, Navy, coastgaurds, Marines, Airforce, etc. should be the only People who should control guns. Any citizens who control a gun or get a gun in their hand should be executed.


Wait....what? There is bad spelling here, but in my opinion it's just bloody stupid.

Global Peacekeeping Corps

A resolution to improve world security by boosting police and military budgets.


Category: International Security
Strength: Strong
Proposed by: Buffett and Colbert

Description: REALIZING that many NationStates are at war with each other or are otherwise in a state of military strife with a foreign power or within a NationState's own country,

STATING that to preserve world peace and stability, action must be taken,

WHILE REASSURING each NationState's right to its own sovereignty,

1. Requests a coalition of soldiers be formed from the contribution of any willing NationState,

2. Proclaims that this military corps shall be maintained by the World Assembly and is only under the World Assembly's jurisdiction,

3. States these soldiers shall only be sent to assist a NationState or association of militants with the approval of the majority of World Assembly members,

5. Further States the World Assembly reserves the right to withdraw troops from any area without a consensus when:
a. It is obvious there is severe danger to
the troops and they cannot overcome this
danger
i. This does not apply to the normal
obstacles of war

6. Further proclaims a soldier from the Corps is not required to follow the laws of the NationState is he or she is in but must cooperate with all international laws and standard ordinances.


Oh lovely! YET ANOTHER WA MILITARY PROPOSAL!

The promotion of Orbital defen

A resolution to improve world security by boosting police and military budgets.


Category: International Security
Strength: Significant
Proposed by: Canadaiana

Description: If this resolution is passed, it will give any nation in the WA the right to install orbital defense/offense systems in earth’s orbit. Defensive systems can be used to take out enemy ships planes and missiles, while Offensive Systems can be used to take out ground targets. Though there is a list of rules to be followed in the use of such systems.

Orbital Offensive Systems

1. Orbital Offensive Systems can only be used after a nation has provoked the nation you lead (provoked being defined as being attacked by another nation)
2. One offensive satellite are to be permitted per nation
3. The only warheads permitted to be loaded on satellites are conventional warheads, any use of biological, radiological, chemical or nuclear warheads are not permitted.
4. Use of installing lasers on an Orbital Offensive Satellite is not permitted.

Orbital Defensive Systems

1. Ships can only be taken out by these systems if a military ship enters your nation. National waters without stating its intentions.
2. Two defensive satellites are permitted per nation.
3. Use of laser or Conventional missiles permitted to take out enemy missiles.
4. Use of only conventional missiles is permitted to take out enemy ships.

This resolution will go into act a day after it’s passed.


Resolutions, if passed ARE IMMEDIATE! and only 1 non-nuclear offensive sat is allowed? Wha? Also, not all WA nations are PMT or FT, where you can ACTUALLY HAVE Orbital Weapons Platforms. And to restrict Offensive OWPs and Defensive OWPs to non-nuclear/bio/chem is in my opinion stupid.

Reinstate repealed resolution
Category: Human Rights


Strength: Strong


Proposed by: Louis Van Boxel Woolf

Description: The goal of this is to reinstate resolutions: Resolution 3, Resolution 5, Resolution 13, Resolution 14, Resolution 26 and Resolution 32.This is because many important human rights laws such as "The Right to a fair trial," which every human/citizen should have and enjoy are resolutions that populate the list of "repealed" resolutions.
This resolution is also to acknowledge that they must have proved popular to become WA law, and the nations(s) which campaigned and succeeded to have these resolutions repealed should have resigned from the WA instead of removing the fundamental human rights.
This resolution is intended to restore peace and unity amongst nations and recognise human rights are an important part of a country and they come with democracy (which the majority of the World's nations are as of 17.5.09 20:06 UK time).
THIS RESOLUTION IS NOT DESIGNED/INTENDED TO POUR SCOURN OR INSULT, OFFEND THE NATIONS WHO HAD THESE RESOLUTIONS APPEALED.
Illegal, tries to repeal several repeals.

It's also a House of cards effect.

Law of Guns

A resolution to tighten or relax gun control laws.


Category: Gun Control
Decision: Tighten
Proposed by: Allrule

Description: The World Assembly,
NOTING that,while some approve of submachine guns and other powerful gun types,

THAT all citizens of all World Assembly nations,
Are PROHIBITED from using any gun more powerful than a pistol,
AUTHORIZES the use of more powerful guns in emergency situations,

Lolwut? What about the Military or police forces? Also, fails to define "emergency situations".

Deregulations of Green Laws

A resolution to develop industry around the world.


Category: Advancement of Industry
Area of Effect: Environmental Deregulation
Proposed by: Braxil

Description: THIS proposal states that if a country has at least 2 laws that state that the enviroment is more precious than industry that law will be terminated in the state that it will no longer exist.


6% of the regional delagates will be proposed as the Industry Moderators. These delegates will be randomly picked by the WA moderators.

THE Industry Moderators will make sure that no one country will have more than 2 laws that are extremly environmental.


Any industry affecting laws that are passed will be counted as Environmental.


Lolwut? Changes the game and doesn't do jack.

And I've been noticing that Braxil has been doing a lot of these illegal proposals.

This resolution is also to acknowledge that they must have proved popular to become WA law, and the nations(s) which campaigned and succeeded to have these resolutions repealed should have resigned from the WA instead of removing the fundamental human rights.
This resolution is intended to restore peace and unity amongst nations and recognise human rights are an important part of a country and they come with democracy (which the majority of the World's nations are as of 17.5.09 20:06 UK time).
THIS RESOLUTION IS NOT DESIGNED/INTENDED TO POUR SCOURN OR INSULT, OFFEND THE NATIONS WHO HAD THESE RESOLUTIONS APPEALED.
Illegal, tries to repeal several repeals.


It's also a House of cards effect.

Care to explain how?

Repeal "Nuclear Arms Possession Act"

A proposal to repeal a previously passed resolution


Category: Repeal


Resolution: #10


Proposed by: Theredon

Description: WA Resolution #10: Nuclear Arms Possession Act (Category: International Security; Strength: Mild) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

Argument:
Noting the inadequate and incomplete rationale for the formation and implementation of World Assembly Resolution #10.

Further noting the lack of an extensive or comprehensive definition for nuclear, arms, possession, hostility, attack, weapons, precautions, or any phrase consisting of a combination thereof.

Regretting the ambiguous and vague nature of the resolution in regards to the references to the possession of nuclear arms.

Further regretting that the resolution was passed with the identified flaws not addressed, amended, corrected or noted.

1. STATING that World Assembly Resolution #10 is unimplemented in all member states and its power terminated directly from the time of repealing.

2. AFFIRMS that any member state wishing to rely on resolution #10 as a means of justifying, explaining, authorising or condoning the use, possession, or manufacture of nuclear arms or weapons shall not be able to do so forthwith.

3. INTENDING that the current use, possession or manufacture of nuclear arms or weapons shall not be directly affected or altered by the repealing of this resolution until such time as a substitute resolution may be implemented.

4. URGING that a further resolution addressing the state of the possession and control of nuclear ordinance be formed to the satisfaction of the majority of World Assembly member states.

5. DECIDING to remain actively seized of the matter.
Apparently their primary argument is that they don't have a dictionary. :roll:

Even if it doesn't say "recalling Resolution *Number whatever*", most new WA members don't know what those resolutions he is talking about are they would go through to find and read the repealed resolutions.

That's not a HoC violation, a HoC violation is when a proposal can't do anything without another resolution's existence.
