[AWAITING QUROUM] Repeal "International Transport Safety"

Postby Slandiltopia » Thu Jun 24, 2021 10:19 am

This repeal effort is intended to be followed by a series of three new GA Resolutions, the first of which can be found here. (WIP)

General Assembly Resolution #34 “International Transport Safety” (Category: Free Trade; Strength: Mild) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

Recognizing the noble intentions of GAR #34 “International Transport Safety” to commit to international standardization of safety features, accident investigation and communications as a means towards greater transport safety, and understanding that the International Transport Safety Committee (ITSC) performs a necessary function, yet finding itself in disagreement with the manner in which it seeks to achieve its goals and intents, the General Assembly hereby finds the following:

  • Nations in the WA should reserve the right to refuse trade from another WA nation, for the purpose of withholding support to an ideologically opposed nation as a form of protest, or other matters relevant to a nation’s political interests,
  • GAR #34 infringes on the aforementioned right, by prohibiting nations from 'barring WA member state commercial transports... from operating in their airspace, territory or territorial waters, or preventing such from docking, landing, or otherwise embarking/disembarking passengers & loading/unloading freight,'
  • Clause 7 of GAR #34, which contains the previous quotation, deviates from the Resolution's stated purpose of 'safety and reliability' in transportation, without reasoning or explanation.
  • The Resolution has overextended itself by attempting to legislate on air, land, and sea transport simultaneously, while establishing minimal regulations for each one.
  • A significant grey area has been left through the vagueness of some clauses, allowing too much subjectivity in how the ITSC enacts regulations of its own.
  • What regulations do exist actively conflict with GAR #464, "Protection Of Airspace", which allows a nation full control of its domestic airspace in regards to air travel.
Acknowledging potential objections due to the Resolution's long standing, the General Assembly also finds:

  • The ITSC as it stands performs many vital functions.
  • Aside from the seventh clause, GAR #34 is a useful piece of groundwork which can be built upon to ensure
    that international transportation systems are consistent in their safety & reliability throughout the nations of the World Assembly.
Understanding this, the General Assembly commits itself to:

  • Repealing GAR #34, with understanding that it's seventh clause unfairly intrudes upon the national sovereignty of those nations who might wish to refuse trade with a given nation due to severe political disagreements, it has created an unnecessary and dangerous subjectivity towards ITSC operations, and it does not contain enough regulation to guarantee safety.
  • Reinstating the ITSC through a future set of three resolutions, each focusing on air, land, and sea transportation respectively.
And therefore, the General Assembly repeals GAR #34 "International Transport Safety".

Acknowledging potential objections due to the Resolution's long standing, the General Assembly also finds:

  • The ITSC performs a vital function.
  • Aside from the offending clause, GAR #34 is a useful and necessary piece of legislation due to its effort to guarantee that international transportation systems are consistent in their safety & reliability throughout the nations of the World Assembly.

Understanding this, the General Assembly commits itself to:

  • Repealing GAR #34, with understanding that it's seventh provision unfairly intrudes upon the national sovereignty of those nations who might wish to refuse trade with a given nation due to severe political disagreements,
  • Reintroducing an updated version of the resolution, reinstating the ITSC with the offending clause removed.
  • Maintaining the duties of the ITSC during the interim period between the repeal of GAR #34 and its reestablishment in a future resolution, in order to keep continuity of jurisdiction.

And therefore, the General Assembly repeals GAR #34 "International Transport Safety".

Removed a section committed to maintaining the duties of the ITSC in an interim period, which is disallowed under the 'repeals can only repeal' rule

Added more reasoning for the repeal, aside from just the National Sovereignty argument, which itself is not enough to repeal a Resolution.

Included a discovered conflict with GAR #464 as an additional reason to repeal, and cleaned up some language about how to build upon GAR #34.

While transition clauses like this are a clever idea (and something which a real legislature would do), they aren't permitted under the GA's repeal-can-only-repeal rule. You'll have to omit a clause like this.

Reintroducing an updated version of the resolution, reinstating the ITSC with the offending clause removed.

OOC: This sounds like an amendment. Given that there's plenty more wrong with the resolution, putting it back without the one clause in place would not fix the other issues.

Also, that's pure NatSov, isn't it? You want to remove the anti-NatSov clause but are happy with everything else? That's basically the definition of the NatSov Only violation: if your argument boils down to "I don't like this resolution because it takes away the right for my nation to decide on an issue on its own", that's NatSov Only.

I want that resolution gone because it's a gobbled-together mishmash that tries to legislate on air, land and water transport all at once, creating minimal regulations and then saying "that's good enough for international transporting" even if domestic regulations for domestic transporting were much higher.

It should be removed, period. Air, land and sea transporting should get their own resolutions each and they shouldn't be committee-driven, like #34 is.

Coronavirus related. This too. And this. These are all jokes. This isn't. This is, again, but it's also the last one.
Apologies for absences, non-COVID health issues leave me with very little energy at times.

OOC: Very good point. I, full disclosure, actually misread the section on National Sovereignty in the rules. Silly me. I'll start work on a second draft that incorporates a more complete argument for the removal of the Resolution.

Made a few updates. Anyone, please feel free to look it over and let me know if I made any errors, or help me build my case by finding something else I could add.
