[PASSED] Repeal "Condemn Swarmlandia"

Postby A mean old man » Thu Jul 07, 2011 3:57 pm

Repeal "Condemn Swarmlandia"
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.

Category: Repeal | Resolution: SC#47 | Proposed by: A mean old man


Argument: The World Assembly,

NOTING that the nation of "Swarmlandia" was recently condemned by the nation of "Sakaba,"

FURTHER NOTING that, according to the accounts of many senior nations which have had numerous years to observe the happenings of this world and according to a statement made by the nation of Sakaba itself years ago, the nation of "Swarmlandia" is controlled by the exact same administration as the nation of "Sakaba,"

STANDING AGAINST such demonstrations of self-acknowledgement through the abuse of an international organization such as the World Assembly Security Council and finding it likely that the member(s) of the administration of both nations only seek to promote their own interests through passing a condemnation of their own lands,

BELIEVING the acts supposedly committed by Swarmlandia to be atrocious, however noting that it was quite possible that such "tourists" could simply have been forced to enter the nation of Swarmlandia by its sister nation of Sakaba for the purposes of justifying such a condemnation of Swarmlandia,

FURTHER IDENTIFYING absolutely no information whatsoever located in the international forums or found in any other such area that verifies the claims made by Sakaba against Swarmlandia; in essence, no credible records of Swarmlandia's torture of foreigners have ever been found and therefore it cannot be so quickly assumed by such an important body as the World Assembly that such events ever took place,

CONCLUDING that this condemnation is an illegitimate attempt to draw attention to jointly controlled territories while not being backed up by any form of substantial evidence whatsoever,

HEREBY REPEALS the condemnation of Swarmlandia.


I would like to thank the 94 delegates who approved this repeal here in this thread. I lost track of who I had personally thanked and therefore wasn't able to send them all telegrams thanking them for approving my proposal.

Be sure to send scores of them from your own puppet nation if you want it to look particularly atrocious. You could also try grinding them into burger meat and feeding them to orphans to add a particularly monstrous element. Be sure not to record any of it anywhere, though.

I actually got a TG from Swarmlandia with some information that would help on a repeal of a condemn, but I deleted the TG, like, two days ago because I wasn't going to work on it. If I had seen this, I'd have talked to AMOM. Was this even drafted on the forums?

No. I tend to work repeals a little differently than I do C&Cs, mainly because I expect a lot of opposition when passing a repeal and think it best that they attract as little attention as possible so that those who might oppose them have very little time to prepare and react when the time comes (or even before it comes). I still drafted this quite thoroughly elsewhere, though; that phase of creating a resolution has always been very important to me.

I voted FOR. Only because... it's true. I just slipped it right in there and laughed when it passed. Though I was trying to get a few people to repeal it, I think AMOM did by far the best job and I didn't even ask him too. :bow:

The official stance of TWP is "I don't care".

If either side would like our vote, we're taking bribes.

W T F?
Self-condemnation?
The People of NU are disgusted by this manipulation of the WA for self-promotion of nations concerned(both nominee and nominator of the condemnation).

Therefore,it was only natural that we support its repeal.

Unless we take into account that this repeal,if passes,will probably trigger a repeated attempt at condemnation,leading into further promotion of said nations.

(Nazi Europe,anyone?)

Therefore,we are AGAINST this repeal.

Also noting that this attempt at repeal was unfortunate,as it helps the further (accidental?) promotion of said nations in itself even due to its very existence.

While the circumstances of the original resolution are suspect, We do not support the repeal. We think it takes a certain amount of brass circular objects to concoct a scheme to "condemn" one selves and that fact that it passed is an indication of the success of that scheme. We say let it stand.

The Fourth Republic of Garcia-DeLeon is going to vote against this repeal because of the sole reason that, if the resolution was flawed in the first place, then nations with a careful eye should have not voted for the original resolution anyway. If Swarmlandia deserves to be condemned, we will upkeep the condemnation.

Your post is a circus of illogical gibberish, Garcia-DeLeon.

If the resolution is flawed, then Swarmlandia does not deserve to be condemned by it. Yet you instead get to the opposite conclusion... even though that's the opposite of what makes sense.

...and if anyone else out there is wondering how to make their four days of free publicity on the WA floor into eight days of free publicity, always make sure your resolution pisses off the old guard. Because if there's anything they pretend to hate but secretly love, it's having their chains yanked. Hooray for schizophrenia! :clap:

The publicity, it is going to be the end of us all. Oh what a world, what a world.

I never got people who worried about the publicity angle. More important is removing the bad resolution, not worrying about imaginary problems concocted to protect bad legislation.

Metania, I'm stating that, if the nations that voted for this plan of action knew that the condemnation should not have happened, why did they vote for it? They voted for it because they felt it was the right thing to do. So, this nation is taking the stance that the nations who voted yes last time should be certain it was the right choice and the condemnation should be upheld.

This is gross deceit and a petty spit on the due process of the Security Council, not ABBA. 8) I don't think that the 'old guard' thinks of the workings of the Security Council as mere 'publicity' to be granted here and refused there, that would be rather demeaning to our institution.

No, they voted for it because they read "Condemn" and went "Oh look, it's a condemn" and then they just voted on it mindlessly. They don't read it, because they just as easily turn against it when they find out they were swindled.

You spent at least 1000x the effort most of the people who voted for it initially did just by making that statement. So it is understandable you don't understand that... nations don't vote on things because they think they're right, but rather because they like clicking shiny buttons because the big WA person said that guy was a bad guy.
