[Abandoned] Repeal GA#2

Postby Excidium Planetis » Wed Jan 16, 2019 12:53 pm

"Second Draft, same as the first, little bit longer and a little bit worse... Uh, err... Yeah." Adelia Meritt says sheepishly. "Any criticism would be appreciated."

Repeal "Rights and Duties of WA States"
Category: Repeal || Resolution: GAR #2 || Proposed by: Excidium Planetis

Description:

Whilst General Assembly Resolution #2, "Rights and Duties of WA States", served its purpose in the early days of the World Assembly, making order out of the cooling remains of that colossal fireball that wiped out our predecessor organisation,

The Assembly of Worlds now, however,

Recognizes that this esteemed resolution has now become a hindrance to the further domination of all member states' petty affairs,

Regrets that the target resolution's lack of creative inspiration was not noticed upon its initial passage, and has since served as a permanent stain upon the otherwise completely perfect and blemishless record of this Assembly,

Argues that the original context of the resolution in question has been lost to time, and the world the Assembly now finds itself in is very different from that which GAR#2 sought to tame,

Takes Particular Grievance with the rather absurd definition of war, which blatantly disregards all plain understanding of actual armed conflict, and which stands among many other textual flaws the members of this Assembly can no doubt find for themselves,

Enumerates, nevertheless, just a small handful of these flaws, including but not limited to:
  • The annoyingly repeated use of the compound word "NationState", instead of any number of perfectly acceptable alternatives like "nation-state" or "member nations", which besides looking quite terrible, also invites ambiguity as to whether the resolution is addressing only the World Assembly or any nations at all,
  • The extraneous use of the symbol §, which, owing to the use of numbered Articles throughout the resolution, serves absolutely no purpose other than to make the resolution look grander than it actually is, and
  • The lack of definition of any terms which could possibly be misconstrued by signatory nations, which has led to years of incessant arguing among the delegations of member states,

And Therefore,

Repeals "Rights and Duties of WA States"


A mysterious piece of paper appears on the desks of the various members of the World Assembly, always when they aren't looking.

Repeal "Rights and Duties of WA States"

Jebslund is a nation of kerbals ruled by Emperor Jebediah Kerman. We reject tyranny, believing that rights should be protected, though we also believe said rights end where the rights of others begin.
Shockingly, we *do* use NS stats, with the exception of lifespan.
Singular sapient: Jebslunder
Plural Sapient: Jebslunden
Singular/Plural nonsapient: Kermanic
Note: When a verb can logically only be done by the sapient using/piloting/holding the object in question, then the appropriate demonym for the number of sapients is used.

Capitalism, Socialism, and Communism are ECONOMIC SYSTEMS. Stop conflating them with political systems.

“I cannot, in good faith, support a repeal of GA #2 unless the reasoning is exceptionally good. By that I mean it should cause at least one serious medical complication to my person as the result of its sheer quality and reasoning. Unfortunately, this doesn’t quite hit the mark. In particular, I think a repeal as monumental as this is one place where so much humour is not justified.”

Not in the WA despite coincidentally following nearly all resolutions
This is due to a problem with how the WA contradicts democracy
However we do have a WA mission and often participate in drafting

I am well aware of the Joke Proposal thread, but why is this relevant to this thread?

As for repeals of GA #2, no support. Ever. I like the resolution being a thorn in the side of every tin-pot military dictator.

Article 1 pretty much states that a nation may do anything it wants so long as that behavioure isn't restricted by any law (WA laws or it's own). Aleast that is my reading anyway.
Ambassador Ariela Galadriel Maria Mirase
37 year old Arch-bishop of the Arasi Christian Church (also the youngest ever arch-bishop and fifth woman in the church hierarchy). An attractive but stern woman with a strict adherence to religious and moral ethical codes, also somewhat of an optimist. She was recently appointed to the position following the election of Adrian Midnight to the position of Patriarch.

Replacements can be made.

Also the EX-NATION flag just adds to the value of the Season 1 card. When I show up in Season 2 there will be a different flag, so you can collect the ultra rare "limited edition" Ex nation version of the card. See, me going AOL was strategic.

"I, um, understand that I submitted this proposal, originally, anonymously, during a time where I was not, in fact, the uh, official acting Ambassador to the World Assembly for Excidium Planetis, but now that I, uh, am, that, I would like to, uh, revisit this repeal." Adelia announces.

"We wholeheartedly support this repeal. I know others in the past voiced their concern about the humor in this proposal, but I disagree with them entirely. A resolution of GAR#2's stature deserves a fitting and memorable repeal, and in my opinion, this accomplishes it admirably."
"Quotes" indicate IC. OOC otherwise.

She hesitates for a moment. "But uh, I was here first, you know."
