Quotes of People in Your Nation Mk. VI

Postby Allancia » Sat Aug 15, 2015 10:37 am

Greetings and welcome, to the Quotes of People in Your Nation thread! This one, as you can tell from the fancy numeral, is the sixth edition.
Here's the last thread, for convenience: viewtopic.php?f=25&t=317857
Thanks to Bereia and all the former hosts of these threads for setting an example of how these things are meant to be set up. Now, as the title suggests, just post some things that someone in your nation has ever said. They can be political, military, or kind of random. Just post it.

As it wouldn't be the the Quotes Thread without this wonderfully drunken tradition, here are the rules of the NSQuotes Drinking Game. I've made a few additions, and feel free to post some more if need be. I'll happily put them in.
1- whenever a patently ridiculous thing is said, drink one shot.
2- if an ad hominem, generalization, or strawman is used, drink two shots.
3- if a Bereian and a Ruridovan get into an argument, sip from a shot of whiskey and a shot of whisky.
-- if the argument involved government size, religious freedom, or gun rights, finish both shots.
4- if someone from New Frenco mentions sex, drink a shot.
-- if a Saurisian deity responds, drink two more shots.
5- if a Bojikamiian says something pertaining to past wars or national heroes, drink a shot of vodka.
-- If somebody mentions Alphonse, take a shot.
6- whenever a Kylian says anything, drink a shot of ouzo.
-- if a Kylian uses the term 'progresso' or 'Urrope'; or implies NFE to be a pedo nation, drink whole bottle of ouzo.
7- if a GWO citizen mentions world conquest, drink a shot.
-- drink two shots if they use something other than fascism to justify it.
-- drink three if Magna Polis or one of the Victors is mentioned.
-- if suicide or an atrocity is mentioned, drink a bottle of beer.
8- if a Luziycan denies that Luziyca is responsible for some atrocity, drink a can of lite beer.
-- if they then express support for those who committed said atrocity, finish the six-pack.
9- if a White Sunese mentions an Emperor or Empress, drink a glass of sake.
10- if an Auzkhian uses magic, drink a glass of beer.
-- if said magic-user is a pony, drink another.
11- have a shot for every day Wisconsin does not use a nuclear weapon on a civilian population.
-- for every nuke Wisconsin uses, take three shots.
12- whenever a Multifarian makes disparaging comments about British conservatism, drink a glass of white wine.
-- if the word 'zer' is used more than thrice, drink another; if used more than five times, drink another glass of white and a glass of red.
13- when a Imyojian says something edgy, mix a shot of vodka into a cup of coffee and drink.
14- Whenever Cornelius Maximilian or Z. Maglos speaks, drink a shot.
--Whenever you suspect a post by Estainia is a shout-out to some obscure reference none of the rest of you will get, take a shot.
15- if the fourth wall is broken, drink a glass of barley wine or hefeweizen.
-- if multiversal travel is mentioned, drink a glass of port or sherry as well.
16- whenever the diary of an Allancian soldier is mentioned, sip a shot of cheap-o wine.
-- if it is the diary of an officer or general, drink another shot.
-- if the date is mentioned, conspicuously, drink a bottle of the crap.
-- if said soldier wrote the entry shortly before a horrendous defeat, drink two bottles
17- drink a glass of near beer whenever someone posts on an alt.
18- if some random NSer posts once and never returns, drink a jug of moonshine.
19- when Stephen Jones, Julissa Hickman, Antony Belinsky, Leopold Dietkrech, Alicán Relenóris, Dennis Cromwell, Edmund Rosencrantz, or any other similar average civilian quasi-author-avatar character is brought up, finish the bottle nearest to you.
20- when the thread forgets Umbra Ac Silentium whenever a list is made, drink a whole bottle of your least favorite liquor. That'll make you remember next time.
21- Every time Multiversal Species Alliance says the words damnation, heresy, heretic or sin, you have to drink a full mug of beer.
22- Everytime Nexus talks about a Frenco or talks about theocracy, drink two shot-glasses of vodka.

24- Everytime Weselton makes a Frozen reference, drink a glass of wine.
35- Every time Auroya makes a quote about space or space exploration, take a shot. The drink doesn't matter, just take the damn shot.
36- If a Bereian refers to somebody as a barbarian, drink a shot of "barbaric" liquor, such as vodka. If it was for political reasons, drink two shots.
37- Once a Las Palmeran begins to monologue, arrange some beer cans in front of you. For two lines of text, take a half can of it. Only half, but if you're feeling lucky, try one half can per line.
-- If any Palmeran says something even slightly melancholic, drink whatever you want because it doesn't matter.
38- On the rare occasion -The Ukrainian SSR- posts, drink a shot of malt liquor if the post doesn't have a quote by either Mark Valshannar or Matthias Laberenz. If it does, down a beer.
39- Whenever a Singaporean mentions a Mecharussian or something remotely related to the Mechanocracy, drink a bottle of vodka with an Asian alcoholic drink mixed in.
-- If the person speaking is Overwatch AI from the PTFS making a generic daily announcement/reminder/order, take a shot.
-- If the announcement includes the words "anticitizen", "amputation", "permanent off-world relocation", "re-assignment", "policide", "sociocide", drink a glass of whatever you have.
-- If the announcement includes a code reminder (e.g. Code: Lock, Cauterize, Stabilize) drink a bottle of whatever you have. Does not accumulate
40- Whenever the Vox speaks, take a shot of scotch whiskey.
41- When someone doesn't do the format of bolding/italicizing their post, arrange several glasses of water and vodka (insert drink into glasses randomly, do NOT mix them) before you. For every post on that page written in the normal format, drink one glass. For every one written in normal text, take two glasses
42- If someone makes a quote solely for plot or detail reasons, drink a full glass of beer with hops in it so you'll remember the thing for RPs.
43- Whenever a Sekuonese (can apply to Lansuo or Syla if one is masochistic enough) mentions anything about how suffering is inescapable and that the self is a lie, treat yourself to Absinthe. If it is a follow up to a Mackonian, drink the cheapest wine you have.
44- Whenever a Barboneian makes a reference to how something in Barboneia is similar to Brave New World or Nineteen Eighty-Four, take a shot.
45- If a quote is from the Book of Omnius, drink a glass of whatever you have.
46- If Ruridova doesn't use or mention an author avatar in a quote, take a shot; if the speaker is a politician take a shot of bourbon, if it's a comedian or news anchor take a shot of rum.

(As made by Ruridova Wisconsin, Allancia and whoever else makes up future rules).



"There comes a point in warfare where logic break downs. Your army, your navy, your band of misfits becomes so large that you can not handle it any longer. It simply becomes impossible to handle that many soldiers, with only so many resources on such a large terrain. So, you take the easy route. You stop trying to handle everything, you stop trying to coordinate everyone. You just charge, you just make them run forward. With modern technology, we can automatically mow down horde after horde of people, comfortable in bunkers or trenches. Same goes for captains and generals. They sit in their little fortresses and sip wine, while the blood of their own soldiers runs under their feet. Disgusting. Now, this might seem like a poor way of running things, but it isn't. You have plenty of auxiliary or ancillary troops waiting behind lines, rifles at the ready. As your nation gets ever stronger and larger, it doesn't get any easier to defend. Your borders get hard to patrol, your patrols get stretched farther and farther along the belt of your nation. It's the same thing here, but instead of trees and rocks we're trying to safeguard, it is human lives."

"Yeah...'Busca el lado bueno de vivir' (Spanish translation of 'Always Look on the Bright Side of Life') would be an indirect national anthem despite the constant melancholic exports to the outside. Because it's melancholic and not wholly depressive. Any Palmeran with family born before 1980 should have naturally heard 'Si tu asunto se resuelve con asunto, no te preocupes. Si no, ¿porqué gastas tu tiempo?' "

" I've got nothing else to point out as especially 'ours'. Maybe that obsession with hoarding and sculpting rocks as spheres and sometimes other space shapes, but that's really inexplicable...even in Pre-Colombian times. So much that every foreign country with an embassy probably has a sphere-gift, and several more made at home to replace it. Sorting them in rows, making circular designs, placing them where they can be placed..."

Realistically, one cannot be free in any way or form. So long as one has a body that requires sustenance and maintenance and has a mind that craves for various things, one is never free. But I guess one can simply enjoy it while it lasts.

Sometimes there is beauty in that interdependence, even if it seems fatalistic and miserable at times.

The Sufi way of life is entrenched in Sylanese Muslim heritage. It is the realization of Allah (swt) through not simple prary or materialistic legislation of law. It is taking the law to the heart and soul, and understanding it to the fullest. It is not necessary for an Islamic state to exist as a result, and such a way of life breeds tolerance and understanding of the spiritual.

Unfortunately, Wahhabism is also gaining traction, and seeks to destroy the Sylanese Muslim community through fear, intolerance, and violence.

**TV advert begins, showing bright, oversaturated kitchen scene, actor is using appliance while talking to the camera.**

"It slices, it dices, it cooks your breakf-"

**Screen cuts to black abruptly.**

**White noise and static**

**Test-card appears with the words 'Signal Error'**

**Static and white noise**

**Static remains, white noise replaced by voiceover**

"Do not attempt to adjust your set, or you'll miss the hijacking of a lifetime, lovers, enjoy the ride."

**Screen flashes black, with the letters 'rLo' in white as though written in spray-paint, which appear to the left of centre, partly off the edge of the screen, in a few jerky cuts accompanied by a small amount of static, the logo is adjusted until it is centre on the screen.**

Voiceover: "The following is an announcement by the Real Left Option."

**Screen cuts to a disused warehouse, filmed in monochrome from a handheld camera, four people are visible:
Florimel 'Flossy' Gardner MP, wearing a skirt, black and white striped thigh-high socks, black and white striped arm warmers and a black t-shirt with 'nHs' spraypainted on it in white, and MPs Richard 'Kangaroo Dick' Mirrabookaand The Great Long-Conk, both wearing jeans and black t-shirts with 'rLo' sprayed on them in white, and lastly a fourth unrecognised person holding a second camera. Hendrix-esque guitar riff now plays in background**

Florimel: "You know babes and dolls, It's me: The one The Daily Mail warned you about, Flossy Gardner, and I've popped up on this boob-tube thing to give our fine Prime Minister an important memory-jog."

**Viewpoint switches between the two cameras periodically as none-speaking MPs pace around and nod, fist bump etc.**

Florimel: "You see, our Prime Minister Stacey, what's zer name again..? Oh yeah, Stacey Carol, seems to be forgetting that ze ring-fenced education spending in zer pre-election pledges, and well... I just didn't have the heart to let zer make the mistake of accidentally breaking a pledge."

**Clip of current Prime Minister Stacey Carol promising to ringfence education spending plays: "Under my watch, education is ringfenced, so long as I'm in office, not a penny will be cut from any school's budget."
This rewinds back, then plays again at double speed. There's a burst of static followed by another, more recent clip of Carol, this time the clip is upside-down on the screen: "The education budget will have to find cost-savings as it is to be cut by two billion pounds."
Another burst of static and the camera is on Kangaroo Dick**

Kangaroo Dick: "Hey mates,"

**As Kangaroo speaks, the Conk smokes a cigar, ze blows the smoke out into the second camera as the viewpoint switches to it, filling the screen with smoke, before the viewpoint switches back.**

Kangaroo Dick: "You know those guys in our old party, the Democratic so-called Socialist Party, aren't even fighting these cuts? Or the welfare cuts? Or the pension cuts? Are they even socialists anymore? Huhhuh, what do they stand for nowadays?

**As Kangaroo says this, the Conk takes another drag from the cigar, this time kissing Florimel, and breathing the smoke into Florimel's mouth, After the pair separate Florimel exhales the smoke with a smile and wink.**

Kangaroo: "Do they even stand for anything at all?"

The Great Long-Conk: "You know, The Real Left Option... That's kind of an appropriate name, you see, we keep it Real, and if you're on the Left... Looks like we're the only Option."

Florimel: "See you all around."

**Florimel blows a kiss to the camera.**

**There is another burst of static, the guitar rift stops, and the screen is once again black except for the spray-painted white letters 'rLo,' the voiceover returns: "The preceding intrusion was brought to you by the Real Left Option." There is a final, longer burst of static, and the TV appears to return to normality, showing the last second of an advert for a solicitors office, the voiceover for which says: "-terms and conditions apply."**


-The first TV Party Political Broadcast for former two-term Democratic Socialist Party MP Florimel Gardner's new breakaway-party 'The Real Left Option,' broadcast in 2005, masquerading as a broadcast signal intrusion, the advert caused quite a lot of media attention as you can imagine, the Real Left Option went on to win the 2007 General Election.



" 'Toaster'? What is 'toaster'?"

"It's kind of like a VCR that only plays bread."

-Mitch Goren Chemistry student at the John Ball University in York, talking to amnesiac friend Lars Hadroncollider



"Why is it that whenever anything explodes in this house it's me who gets the blame?"

-Sarah Miles, Chemistry student at the John Ball University in York




"Okay. I've analysed your genitalia and assigned you both with lives:

You will be made to despise every part of your body and appearance, you will be taught to fear and suppress your own sexuality, advertising and media will spend every moment of every day re-affirming your inadequacies and preying on your resultant insecurity for profit. You will have to remove every hair on your body below the eyebrow in order to be considered socially acceptable. If you eat more than is required to keep yourself alive you will be considered scum. There's around a 25% chance you'll be raped, and around a 3% chance your rapist will be caught, so good luck with that. If you act like a confident or strong adult, society will call that a 'turn-off.' You will spend your entire life thinking that getting blisters after walking a kilometre is 'normal' because you will never be sold a pair of shoes which was actually designed to accommodate a human foot. You will generally be treated as an innocent victim… But only because no one will think you're capable enough to victimise anyone else. You will not have a passport to travel anywhere alone at night, and if you do, you will be blamed for anything which happens to you. You'll be the last to be hired, promoted, elected or given a pay rise, and any success you do manage to have will be undermined by claims that you are 'there to tick boxes.' If you don't have children, you are weird and a failure, and if you do, your career will take a major hit.

And you will be forced to toe the line of an incredibly restrictive and inflexible gender-role that will govern how you dress, eat, walk and talk, what emotional reactions you are allowed to have, in what industries you are allowed to work and what hobbies you are allowed to take up, stepping outside this role will almost unavoidably cause you to be beaten, shamed, insulted, humiliated, ostracized or even killed. As a child, if you are mutilated this will be treated as 'normal,' and being physically assaulted or psychologically tormented will be treated as a 'rite of passage' and a 'natural and healthy part of your development.' As an adult, any violence you will receive -and chances are there'll be a lot of it- will be assumed to be something that you deserved. If your partner beats you, the first question even your friends will ask you is: 'Why did you make her do that?' Your rape will be at best ignored, at worst laughed at. You will be assumed guilty of any crime, and assumed to possess every single perversion and character flaw in existence until proven otherwise. And the healthcare providers you spend your entire life paying into will spend more money on replacing noticeboards than they will on treating the illnesses that primarily or exclusively effect your sex.

And before you ask, no. You cannot switch."


-Satirist Ezekiel Thrombosis dressed in a doctor's robe addressing two babies, in a sketch parodying the gender binary present in other countries



"The air, the sea, the land under our feet... They are all free resources my dear, if the air quality, the soil PH, the sea quality gets worse it doesn't cost me a penny, if I can save a penny per litre on making my detergents by using a chemical that 'rapes' the environment then I'd be a fool not to... This is a business, not a charity... And business is booming... And it isn't going to be me footing the clean up bill.”

-'Grasping' Gripper Vice, CEO of Telemorphix ltd



"The last time I heard someone express such a contempt for other people's suffering it was someone with their face painted on the side of a tank and a giant bronze statue of themselves in their capital city. To hear it from a private citizen is quite frightening.
You are as self centred as a spoiled four year old, and no more empathetic, and the fact you try to justify your ludicrous myopia with a blind, unnuanced, unthinking, uncomprehending dedication to an ideology shows you lack even a four year old's capability of original thought and logical deduction.

'But Mummy, I don' wanna pay 4 cents of ma wagies on stoppin' sixtween wear wolds from dwoppin outta skool an' becoming pwostitutes to buy der baby some food and themswelves some antidepwessants 'cos pweeple choose for der condoms to bweak, and I don't wanna pay for ballot papers 'cos people decide to vote, or stweet lights 'cos peple decide to go out at night...'

TLDR: Grow up."

"Conspiracy theories are a kind of fantasy. In the realm of the conspiracy theorist's mind, there is someone actually in charge. There is someone who actually knows what they're doing. All of those common tragedies that seem to happen randomly in our lives are not meaningless. There is a plan. There is a purpose. Even if it's not a good one."
"The reality, however, was far more stark. No one was in charge. Bad things happened to good people not for any greater purpose, but merely because some aircraft maintenance technician forgot to replace a bolt, or because a few waves happened to come together at once in the ocean and swallow a ship. Few actually knew what they were doing - nor could any organization truly adequately control a government."

"The monoliths themselves don't mean anything, they're just spheres carved from rock formations originally from the shallow Caribbean . What matters is the fact there are around 195 of these outside of Las Palmeras. Five in the Cosettes. There are more than 200 in Las Palmeras. And there's a 'special one' located in Antarctica which has a special anti-corrosive plaque that has map markers of the other spheres and coordinates next to an indication about the Moon.

Planned for the future, a rocket which will launch a pod with an indefinite number of micro-tablets made of stone with 'general information' which will send them to the marked Lunar coordinates. The Palmerans want to live forever more as a young nation, since that near-death in the 1830s and the 1960s. They want to out-do China and Mount Rushmore, Kimigayo is wrong because pebbles don't turn to boulders; the opposite occurs. Since 1961 when nuclear war nearly occurred, the Palmerans realized they wanted a cargo cult to emerge from the rubble if possible...or at least look special over all the ruins if 'somebody' found 'us' after the Apocalypse, man made or natural."

"The selfhood emerges as the infant male grasps its penis and giggles in its cot hence realising its own potency without a reflected image thereof, this is the primordial self yet untainted by the torment of the Mirror dialectic which condenses to form the inner logos of the consciousness through its playful prophecy of masturbation. However with the Oedpial dialectic and the formation of language the primal Self is sublimated and distorted in the abstract ideality of language which provides it with reason to fulfill its yearning, the ideality however is introduced via the parental egotism in itself and thus equipped for social intercourse saturates and represses the inner ego. The social discourse is however necessary for the attainment of greater material independence and later the rationality in bondage thereto. The ego thus lies dormant and repressed, causing misery and anger as it strives to break forth.

As reason grows it must necessarily enter a struggle with the morality it was joined to via dialogue with the inner Self in which the weaker egos (corresponding to a smaller penis and thus weaker intellectual capacity) capitulate in their battle with The Spook and thus fall into sexual angst, religious belief and other pathologies such as mental retardation. In stronger individuals the dialectic is resolved and morality dissipates allowing for the total enlightenment of the primordial Self in Reason and the ascent of The Soul This moment of rapturous creation is symbolised in the discovery of masturbation finally ending the maternal dependency and the ceaseless phallic quest which began in infantdom."

"So let me get this straight Dr Excahvir, you're telling me you are genuinely claiming that Collectivists and the Religious are insane, incestuous and have small penises? And this is apparently scientifically proven?"
