[IDEA]new tag: anti-rashist

Postby Archinstinct » Sat May 21, 2022 4:55 pm

As defined by wikipedia.

As written in the title I'd like to request a tag called 'anti-rashist' for everybody who's opposed to A) the current government of Russia and the ideology of Rashism and B) skin rashes ('B' is a joke.)

You're referring to region tags right? If so I found it too specific that it becomes too trivial, not quite popular I suppose. There is already a 'snarky' tag that kinda encompasses that.

For me personally? I would like a 'Biopunk' tag but then again I think it's too trivial.

I would agree that this proposed name is confusing. Before I read the OP, I believed that "anti-rashist" was a portmanteau of "anti-racist" and "anti-fascist."

In addition, an "Anti-Rashist" tag was never added in response to whatever on earth has been going on with the domestic anti-Putin movement in recent years. Nor have tags been made available to allow regions to express opposition to the governments of...
Azerbaijan (in response to last year's skirmish)
PR China (in response to Hong Kong and Xinjiang)
Nicolas Maduro's Venezuela (for general socioeconomic incompetence)
Juan Guaido's Venezuela (for only being in "power" because the West said so, and generally having near-zero influence even within the opposition movement)
Texas (in response to Senate Bill 8 and whatever queerphobic laws the legislature's pumped out in recent years)
the United Kingdom (in response to their failure to hand over Diego Chagos - better known as the British Indian Ocean Territory, whose flag is available as a default real-world flag for nations - to Mauritius)
OR ANY OTHER GOVERNMENT THAT HAS EVER EXISTED

The last time the OP wanted the game to include a default, anti-Putin customisable field, Reppy said that "I don't really think we need to spend admin time adding a protest flag for a (hopefully brief) temporary conflict into the list of available defaults." Why should admin time be spent adding a (presumably permanent) tag in response to Russia vs Ukraine - not least a tag that, unlike any other tag that regional officers can use to describe their regions, expresses opposition to a real-world government?

Don't be rash in the decision making. :p /pun

This is a region tag showing opposition to an ideology, NOT a specific government. Rashism is present in many countries, and regions with the tag will be saying "that's a very bad thing". One could group rashism under the "anti-fascist" tag but it's debatable. Moreover this is an ideology which has spurred one a new cold war. I think in this case that's significant enough to warrant it's own region tag.

Meh. "Rashism" is not some kind of actually based construction, but a thing comparable to "Putinism", "Bidenism", or, for example, "Hortism".

There is no reason to single it out as something separate, if you are not a Ukrainian nationalist, of course

Besides, what other term is there to express opposition to the weird collective of tankies, white nationalists, fascists/neo-nazis, russians/serbs/belrussians/hungarians that support russia, and authoritarians that all fall under the definition of rashism right now?

Seems like anti-fascist covers it fine. The purpose of regional tags is not to get that granular, but to give new nations an simple way of finding like minded people. If we add a ton of specific tags like that, it becomes more cumbersome to use.

Why don't we just give people the ability to make their own tags?

Totally agree with you on that.

I'll take a new tag since Rashism is easily the most dangerous form of Fascism in the world currently in my opinion.

As someone who opposes Fascism, Communism, and Nazism in all their forms, no form of Fascism has support quite like Rashism in 2022. 100 years after Mussolini's March on Rome, we have a new Fascist power in the world: Putin's Russia. Putin's antics are the reason my family fled Western Ukraine 90 years ago (the side that lived there, not all of my family is from Western Ukraine).

Because tags are only useful if the person using them to search knows what they are

They're all gathered under the banner of authoritarianism and the allure of power.
