[DRAFT] Protesters Protest Protesters Protesting Protesters

Postby RedBrickLand » Sun Sep 11, 2022 2:24 am

After taking a long hiatus from issue writing/drafting, I am back once again. Since I am quite rusty, feel free to share feedback to help me as I'll need a lot of it. :p Anyways, here's the draft.

[Title]Protesters Protest Protesters Protesting Protesters

[Validity]Invalid for nations that ban protests

[Desc]At a recent protest staged by your opposition, a group of your most loyal supporters arrived to counter-protest. Afterward, violence erupted and many have died as a result. Now, those same protesters are outside your office demanding that you take action against counter-protests.

[Option 1]"Those darn hooligans ruined my protest and committed murder to boot. Why don't you put your rowdy followers on a leash and get them under control!" complains opposition leader @@RANDOMNAME@@. "All counter-protesters do is barge into protests, disrupt them, and turn them into free-for-alls where innocents die. Protesters should have the right to protection from counter-protesters trying to hurt them for their beliefs."

[Effect]protesters often protest about not being able to protest against protesters
protests resemble sieges as police form a shield around protesters to protect them from incoming waves of counter-protesters

[Option 2]"US acting like hooligans? Impossible!" interjects @@RANDOMNAME@@, a counter-protester who managed to barge into your meeting room while wearing a cardboard cut out of your face. "You forgot to mention the part where we were just peacefully counter-protesting, then you started going bananas about us just being there. Punishing violent protesters? Sure, go ahead, but preventing us from voicing out our opinion? Outrageous!" @@HE@@ dodges a burger thrown by your Chief of Police and instead it hits you.

[Effect]students scolded for talking back to teachers reply with "Just saying my opinion"

[Option 3]"The real problem isn't counter-protesting, it's the sheer amount of violence." claims your Chief of Police, who seems unapologetic about hitting you with a burger. "What we really need is more funding and more police to adequately prevent protests from turning violent. Oh, and also to buy some cool new toys for me and the boys to separate antagonistic groups of protesters from one another." He places body armor and riot shields on your desk.

[Effect]@@DEMONYMPLURAL@@ say "Two police officers are company, a thousand's a crowd"

[Option 4]"You know, these counter-protesters give me a great idea." states @@RANDOMNAME@@, your third cousin and author of How-to Repress Opposition. "You could gather a huge army of 'counter-protesters' to disrupt any of your oppostion's protests, rallies, or campaigns. Any opposition would be easily squashed and they wouldn't even think that you would be behind all of this." @@HE@@ pauses. "Darn it, I wish I had thought of this sooner. I could've added this to my book."

[Effect]opposition often refer to @@LEADER@@'s followers as "a big bad group of school bullies who sometimestake your lunch money"

It looks cool.
Taiwan is a country, Tianmen protests DID happen, and the Chinese government is a dictatorship. Deal with it.
An alt world STRONK Slovakia where the duchy of Nitra (bet you never heard about dat one!) never fell, adopted Christianity and defended it. It also established as a regional superpower. It controls the lands of Croatia, Hungary and Slovakia. The Hungarians also never were a major culture!
I like countryballs. Also, does anyone know HOI4? I play dat gaem. Yes, I am a Slovak nationalist.
I do use NS stats, but not every one of them. (Monogamy? DATS HERECY!)

Why would you assume that it was only the pro-leader side who was violent?

Good point. Will make changes in the draft to account for this. Thanks for the feedback!

Sounds fun and unique. I think it's a good issue.
Factbooks and dispatches (which are works in progress) are the primary source of information for my nation. I try to have my stats match my idea of my nation but I think policies are the stat I can control the most.

Specifics? Personally, I think the title is laughable. How many times can you make protest grammatically correct? :rofl:

As Floofybit mentioned, what exactly is the problem? I would love to consider changing the title if you give specifics and why you believe it should be changed. If you refer to the fact that the word "protest" appears a bunch of times then it was intentional. If you really think the title has a problem, kindly do give a suggestion rather than just telling me there's a problem and then not specifying what the problem exactly is.

That was exactly what I was going for. Just the word "protest" a bunch of times but grammatically correct(-ish) while related to the issue at hand.

I'm still looking for more feedback and suggestions. Thanks!

I actually really like the title. It's far cleverer than anything I could

Thanks for the compliment. :) Also, about Pennyslov. It came off a bit rude to me that they wanted the WHOLE issue rejected because of the title. To me, it would be fine if they gave a suggestion on what to change my title to and why I should do so but no, they had to go with the "This Issue Needs to Be Rejected" approach. I will always read feedback and suggestions and try to make changes but this was just somewhat rude. Then, I remembered it's the person who wrote "The New Racist Car" and I understood. I wish the best for them but man, their posts sure are troll-y.

See, if I didn't know any better, I would have thought it was his troll, but it turns out that, nah, he's just an arrogant idiot. I wish him the best, too, and I don't want anything bad to happen him, either

I like it. The premise is unique (protesting against protesting? My goodness that would be pandemonium) and the title is especially catchy.
I don't stand with Ukraine. I don't stand with Russia. I don't stand with the US, NATO, or EU. I stand with the innocent civilians being caught in the crossfire while the politicians, the media, and weapons manufacturers continue to stoke division and conflict in their geopolitical chess games and treat the people of Ukraine as mere pawns. Zelensky is a corrupt, opportunist oligarchic politician who is not fit to lead Ukraine through anything and wants to inflate his own ego and offshore accounts.

If there is a protest and counter-protest at the same time (which is something that occasionally happens), you get the occasional nut case who shows up who couldn't give a shit about the cause but show up to cause trouble. More often than not, they're somewhat violent
