PASSED: Condemn Sedgistan

Postby Crazy girl » Wed Mar 30, 2011 4:57 pm

The Security Council,

Noting that Sedgistan is a powerful nation in the World,

Dismayed by how Sedgistan abuses this power to nag other nations into dealing with its dirty work, infringing on their sovereignty by telling them what to do,

Horrified by how Sedgistan has changed the interior of the Rejected Realms forum to the color pink, despite knowing how this would affect the other participants, and completely disregarding their opinions,

Appalled by the insults the Sedgistan government has thrown occasionally towards other rulers, including the Queen of Crazy Girl, and the unsubstantiated rumors it has spread about them,

Concerned by the powerhungry acts of Sedgistan, such as the seizing of important positions within the Rejected Realms and other regions for itself, and believing its ambition could spread out all over the World,

Also noting how Sedgistan simply leaves a position unattended to further its agenda in its search for more power,

Observing that Sedgistan feels it is superior to all surrounding nations, and its citizens perceive themselves as better than inhabitants of other nations,

Concluding that Sedgistan is a threat to other nations, due to its arrogant and powerhungry nature, and therefore deserves to be condemned,

Hereby condemns Sedgistan!



Cause he's evil...and stuff :P

The word "forum" ?
"It's legal unless it plainly refers to the electronic entity", and is listed among the R4-legal terms in the SC rules, so I guess it's okay here.

Support.
If there are were a couple more of cool clauses I would even campaign for it. :P

EDIT : Can a nation be arrogant ?

Yeah.. but can a forum of people be... pink.... ?

EDIT: Nah, nevermind she uses the phrase "Interior of the RR Forums", that's probably good enough.

To be frank, condemning someone for changing the colour of a forum does sound like an OOC issue the moderators should solve, not the WA. But I might be wrong on that.

Offsite forums are beyond of NS moderators, and actions there can be (and have already been) condemned by the SC.
Except that this resolution is a bit more jokingly than the Unknown one - that one was about a more serious problem (forum destruction).

Fixed some minor typos and switched a few words to make it sound a little smoother. I dislike the use of 'it' to refer to nations, so there's an alternate version below in the spoiler where I tweaked all sorts of wording to get rid of 'it'. But that's your call in the end. :)

The Security Council,

Noting that Sedgistan is a powerful nation in the World,

Dismayed by how Sedgistan abuses this power to nag other nations into dealing with its dirty work, infringing on their sovereignty by telling them what to do,

Horrified by how Sedgistan has changed the interior of the Rejected Realms forum to the color pink, despite knowing how this would affect the other participants, and completely disregarding their opinions,

Appalled by the insults the Sedgistan government has thrown occasionally towards other rulers, including the Queen of Crazy Girl, and the unsubstantiated rumors it has spread about them,

Concerned by the powerhungry acts of Sedgistan, such as the seizing of important positions within the Rejected Realms and other regions for itself, and believing its ambition could spread out all over the World,

Also noting how Sedgistan simply leaves a position unattended to further its agenda in its search for more power,

Observing that Sedgistan feels it is superior to all surrounding nations, and its citizens perceive themselves as better than inhabitants of other nations,

Concluding that Sedgistan is a threat to other nations, due to its arrogant and powerhungry nature, and therefore deserves to be condemned,

Hereby condemns Sedgistan!


Also, wasn't quite sure what you were referring to in the "also noting" clause, so I guessed in the rewording below.

The Security Council,

Noting that Sedgistan is a powerful nation in the World,

Dismayed by Sedgistan's abuse of this power to nag other nations into working towards Sedgistan's own agenda, infringing on their sovereignty by telling them what to do,

Horrified that Sedgistan changed the interior of the Rejected Realms forum to the color pink, despite knowing how this would affect the other participants, whose opinions were completely disregarded,

Appalled by the insults Sedgistan has occasionally directed towards other nations such as Crazy Girl, in addition to spreading unsubstantiated rumors about them,

Alarmed by the powerhungry acts of Sedgistan, such as seizing important positions within the Rejected Realms and other regions in a demonstration of ambition which threatens to encompass the whole World,

Also noting that Sedgistan leaves positions unattended only in order to monopolize power more easily,

Observing Sedgistan's well-publicized sense of inherent superiority to all surrounding nations,

Concluding that Sedgistan's arrogant and powerhungry nature constitutes a threat to other nations, which deserves to be condemned,

Hereby condemns Sedgistan.

THIS PROPOSAL IS AN OUTRAGE!!!!1 These slanderous accusations could not be further from the truth!! Our splendiferous nation has never insulted the Queen of Crazy Girl, manipulative harlot though she is. Sedgistan is neither arrogant nor powerhungry, and will crush any peons who claim otherwise.

As punishment for writing this tripe, we shall petition the Secretariat to paint the Chamber of the Security Council in lurid pink!

Can't we just topple him with a good ole coalition instead? No, I'm not suggesting anything like the Iraq War, but the cautious and congressionally-approved, the extremely limited operation to kil- defend Libyan civilians. We are protecting Sedgistan from itself!

I must confess, I do rather like a really lurid shade of pink. I support this petition, as well as a condemnation of Crazy Girl for abusing those of us who are fans of pink. That's practically Nazism, and you know what the SC does to Nazis...

A nation can certainly be arrogant. My nation is a prime example of how national pride and patriotism can turn into excessive arrogance and egocentricism if the populace is continually informed that it is the chosen People of the gods and that the rest of the world was created solely for the People of the Quendi to dominate them.

Commendations and condemnation can be stacked, so multiple of each, or both, are possible.
