[Pre-Draft] Repeal GAR#1 'The World Assembly'

Postby Belshekistan » Fri Sep 23, 2022 10:19 am

Author's note (OOC): I've been informed that GAR#1 is actually coded to be unrepealable, making this entire experiment null and void. Please disregard this thread, and have a nice day.


Author's note (OOC): I'm not an idiot. I know this will never pass, and I'm not even entirely sure I'd want it to. I just want to get it to a point where it won't be declared illegal on sight and might actually get a few endorsements, or Lenin forbid go to vote as my way of protesting the world assembly in a way that hopefully won't get me threadlocked. Any help with this goal would be greatly appreciated, but I understand most of the people sympathetic to my position have probably left the WA already.

So, here you have it, my extremely rough draft for a resolution to repeal GAR#1. Discussion of the merits of the resolution seems rather pointless to me since, as I said, it'll never pass. I'm mostly just looking for help ensuring it complies with all GA rules, so feel free to provide that or just laugh at me. Please do bear in mind that this is not a joke proposal. I am not writing it as one, and branding it as one cheapens the value of the protest considerably. I don't expect it will be taken seriously by others, but I am taking it seriously so please don't just tell me to post this in the joke proposal thread.

The World Assembly,

Noting that GAR#1 'The World Assembly' contains various hypocrisies and contradictions,

Believing that the WA has also failed its member states in a multitude of additional ways, including but not limited to:
1. Imposing undue restrictions on the military forces of member nations, harming their ability to defend themselves against non-members not hampered by the same restrictions.
2. Imposing mostly reasonable restrictions on the economies of member nations that nonetheless harm their competitiveness against non-member nations.
3. Passing invasive laws that effectively obliterate portions of the cultures of some member nations.

Disgusted that GAR#1 offers a "grand opportunity" to prospective member nations in the same breath that it transfers rank and privileges held by the elites of the preceding, failed organization over to the new one,

Believing that in so doing GAR#1 preserved the 'old guard' of elites and shut the door to political mobility before the WA even officially existed, making the aforementioned "grand opportunity" a lie,

Further noting that by inviting "members of the World Assembly to begin work on a new volume" before the World Assembly existed, GAR#1 technically fails to invite anyone to participate in this new democracy, and

Finally believing that this invitation is ultimately illusory even if it were effective given the World Assembly's famous hostility to nations that are not western-style democracies or monarchies,

Hereby repeals GAR#1

GAR#1 isn't just unlikely to be repealed. It's impossible on a technical level. GAR#1 has been coded to not be repeal-able. Try it out. You can't submit a repeal of it.
"Quotes" indicate IC. OOC otherwise.

I did not realize that. But I suppose should've expected that an organization as hostile to systematic change as the WA would have mechanisms in place to prevent being replaced with something better.

The WA simply replaced the last iteration called the UN (which of course got taken down by a cease-and-desist letter by the actual organization). Unless if the current iteration of the WA "imploded in a colossal fireball of extra-dimensional inanity," then GA #1 is there to stay.
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.

Ooc: No need to try to be a martyr. This isn't the fault of the GA insulating itself. Max literally insisted the WA not face a second reset. It's not just out of your hands, it's out of all of our hands. But go off, I guess.

And.... Any chance of ever being taken seriously again was just flushed down the toilet.
