[Passed] Condemn Flag Thief

Postby Unibot II » Thu Jan 13, 2011 10:08 pm

DISCLAIMER: This is not entirely honest.. I --and most of their 'victims' do to-- think the Flag Thief runs a hilarious enterprise, but between a commendation and a condemnation, the latter made more sense and was more funny when articulated into a proposal.

Quotations from the Victims of Flag Thief...

Evil Wolf wrote:Hello everyone, my name Evil Wolf and recently...um...recently... my flag was *chokes up* stolen. *Tears up* Oh, I promised myself I wasn't going to cry. *Waves off someone rushing to hand him a tissue* Its ok, it ok, I'm strong, I can get through this.

Yes, I am a victim of the Flag Thief and he is just a terrible, terrible person. Ever since I got my flag back, well, its just not been the same. It won't eat, it won't talk to me, and can't fly right anymore. I fear something just awful happened when Flag Thief got a hold of it. As such I strongly support this Condemn. Let's make sure that no other innocent flags will fall in to the clutches of that horrible person.

Condemn!


Improving Wordiness wrote:Very much for! The grief and heartache my nation suffered as a result of not receiving enough attention that day has left me scarred and disheartened. I believe Flag thief was proposed to at least twice whilst wearing my flag and ate chocolates meant for me.
I think he / she also slept with my stalker.

Condemn him!!


Kryozerkia wrote:The Weasels of Kryozerkia, though patriotic, know the flag flown by the nation is merely fabric displaying our national symbol, which just so happens to be a holographic projection. When our flag was suddenly taken from us, we were amused and flattered that this Thief loved our flag so much. However much to our dismay, this rotten no-good motherless llama of an un-weasely thief also stole our cheese! OUR CHEESE! He must be condemned for this violation of our sovereignty! How dare he steal our cheese! Oh wait... this is about the flag? Oh well, I suppose we're outraged about that as well, but... OUR CHEESE!!!


Free Noldor States from The Black Hawks wrote:You hear these things happen to other regions, in far away parts of NationStates, but you never think it could happen to you. You might think you are prepared for it, I mean, everyone thinks they are; but let me tell you something, you aren´t. You can never be prepared for it.

I remember when it happened to me... It was the worst day of my life. I couldn´t get over the shock. I was left there thinking: "What kind of monster would do something like this? What is happening to this world where your flag can never be safe?" I don´t want my children to grow up like this; always scared, always looking ouf for their region´s flag. We all have been in therapy since, but I am still not able to think of that day without assuming fetal position underneath my bed.


Oliver the Mediocre from Europeia wrote:There are some acts of theft so brazen and unforgivable which would, in the eyes of Europeia, warrant a condemnation for the thief in question. While many of the victim statements given here are quite personal, and Europeia does not wish to make light of these pour souls who have suffered at the hands of the Flag Thief, we ask you to think of what damage could be done when the flag of not just a nation, but an entire region is stolen.

The Flag Thief is a swift one indeed. He stole not just one of our flags, but every Europeian flag we had, forcing us to sew more by hand to bring us back to where we were before. I have so many needle holes in my fingers, I can't... it was a harrowing experience, and many Europeians, like me, have perforated fingers, where once they were silky smooth and well-cared for. Condemn this man. Condemn him for all time.

Resolution Text

Condemn Flag Thief
A resolution to express shock and dismay at a nation or region.
Category: Condemnation | Nominee: Flag Thief | Proposed by: Zombie Unibot


The Security Council,

Believing that overt imitation or 'stealing' the likeness of another nation's flag is also an offense to (1) international goodwill (2) the integrity of a national identity (3) the sovereignty of a state,

Noting that the nominee is internationally recognized as a 'thief' of national flags, Flag Thief regularly imitates the flags of well-known nations -- imitations that have caused confusion in previous years,

Further Noting that the nominee has conducted this dangerous practice since Jan 2004, and its past victims include: Kandarin, Naivetry , Evil Wolf, Durkadurkiranistan II, Francos Spain, Crazy Girl, SalusaSecondus, Stephistan, Sedgistan, Kryozerkia, Corinthe, MrNonchalant , LadyRebels, The twoslit experiment, Chin-Chillas, Fudgetopia, Mikeswill, Kalibarr, Improving Wordiness and Unibot,

Alarmed by the recent broadening of the Flag Thief's Modus operandi to include regional flags and emblems like the Pacific, Europeia and The Black Hawks as targets of imitation as well -- these transgressions threaten regional sovereignty and harbor the same present dangers to supranational diplomacy and goodwill as imitations of national flags do,

Further Alarmed by the nominee's theft of the World Assembly flag and emblem -- which is an unsanctioned usage of the flag and highly illegal if one recalls the litigation and mass carnage that ensued from the NSUN having used --without authorization-- the distinctive flag of another bureau-that-shall-not-be-named,

Recognizing that (1) the imitation of Francos Spain's flag was a violation of c.1007 of the Civil Code for Uniform Justice and Order in the Pacific ("unauthorized use of another nation's flag or other details as your own"), a rule that is still enforced in the Pacific as c.106 in the current edition of the Pacifican Civil Code, (2) the imitation of the Pacific's flag was a violation of c.405 of the current Pacifican Civil Code ("claiming association, affiliation, or representation of the Pacific government in any act without authorization"),

Recalling that on Jan 20, 2011, Flag Thief used a mocking depiction of Violet -- a popular deity -- as a computer-savvy young girl for its flag which caused an uproar due to the aniconistic traditions of Violetism -- some cited fear and panic that "no one is safe [from imitation]!", others cited the religious offense that the action could have for Violetists,

Expressing its belief that this depiction was for the purposes of hostility against minority religions, not a political rite of free expression. Flag Thief declared that it "proudly [flies] this flag" and further sentiments which identify this as a hostile act against a religious majority disguising itself with a rebellious facade,

Hereby Condemns Flag Thief.

The World Assembly Word Count required me to eliminate some clauses and some BBcode to fit, so it has been abridged rather extensively from the draft that was originally intended for submission. My apologies to any disapproval this edit may cause.

Condemn Flag Thief
A resolution to express shock and dismay at a nation or region.
Category: Condemnation | Nominee: Flag Thief | Proposed by: Zombie Unibot


The Security Council,

Contemplating a hypothetical instance where soldiers of one country invade another country while emblazoned with an imitation of an unrelated third nation’s flag or emblem,

Believing the aforementioned example helps to demonstrate why the imitation of a nation’s flag by another nation poses a clear and present danger to international diplomacy in addition to national security,

Asserting that overt imitation or ‘stealing’ the likeness of another nation’s flag is also an offense to (1) international goodwill (2) the integrity of a national identity (3) the sovereignty of a state,

Noting that the nominee is internationally recognized as a ‘thief’ of national flags, Flag Thief regularly imitates the flags of well-known nations -- imitations that have caused confusion in previous years,

Further Noting that the nominee has conducted this dangerous practice since Jan 2004, and its past victims include: Kandarin, Naivetry , Evil Wolf, Durkadurkiranistan II, Francos Spain, Crazy Girl, SalusaSecondus, Stephistan, Sedgistan, Kryozerkia, Corinthe, MrNonchalant , LadyRebels, The twoslit experiment, Chin-Chillas, Fudgetopia, Mikeswill, Kalibarr, Improving Wordiness and Unibot,

Alarmed by the recent broadening of the Flag Thief's Modus operandi to include regional flags and emblems like the Pacific, Europeia and The Black Hawks as targets of imitation as well -- these transgressions threaten regional sovereignty and harbor the same present dangers to supranational diplomacy and goodwill as imitations of national flags do,

Further Alarmed by the nominee's theft of the World Assembly flag and emblem -- which is an unsanctioned usage of the flag and highly illegal if one recalls the litigation and mass carnage that ensued from the NSUN having used --without authorization-- the distinctive flag of another bureau-that-shall-not-be-named,

Recognizing that (1) the imitation of Francos Spain's flag was a violation of c.1007 of the Civil Code for Uniform Justice and Order in the Pacific ("unauthorized use of another nation's flag or other details as your own"), a rule that is still enforced in the Pacific as c.106 in the current edition of the Pacifican Civil Code, (2) the imitation of the Pacific's flag was a violation of c.405 of the current Pacifican Civil Code ("claiming association, affiliation, or representation of the Pacific government in any act without authorization"),

Bearing in mind that whilst international law (as opposed to intraregional law) does not currently prohibit the imitation of national flags by other nations because the General Assembly’s ruleset prevents it from tackling this issue, nevertheless, there is a serious danger with flag imitation that the Security Council can help prevent by deterring other nations from doing the same as Flag Thief has done,

Further Bearing in mind that a condemnation can also serve as a cautionary note to all member-nations to be vigilant for flag-imitating nations such as the nominee,

Recalling that on Jan 20, 2011, Flag Thief used a mocking depiction of Violet -- a popular deity -- as a computer-savvy young girl for its flag which caused an uproar due to the aniconistic traditions of Violetism -- some cited fear and panic that "no one is safe [from imitation]!", others cited the religious offense that the action could have for Violetists. Conversely, Violetist fundamentalists from the Order of Violet, warned others of the terrible "wrath" of Violet, which they supposed their mighty god would unleash upon the World as punishment (the Order then demanded additional human sacrifices),

Expressing its belief that this depiction was for the purposes of hostility against minority religions, not a political rite of free expression. Flag Thief declared that it "proudly [flies] this flag" and further sentiments which identify this as a hostile act by a religious majority disguising itself with a rebellious façade,

Hereby Condemns Flag Thief.

The Federation is offended and confused that you would nominate NAZI EUROPE when our region has nothing to do with Flag Thief. The only way we can make sense of this is if you're just reusing a template from many of the Condemn and Repeal attempt made against the region.

I couldn't help but notice that every single "victim" except for you did not seem to mind, and actually enjoyed having their flag stolen. It sounds more to me like you're just sore that you got yours stolen, and you want to condemn them for it.

IMHO, violating the 'civil code' in The Pacific is worth a Commendation. Especially when done purposely, repeatedly, and for all our enjoyment.

Dude, seriously.. I thought being a 'victim' was hilarious.

The suitable punishment for stealing another nations' flags should be death. However, in the WA one can only earn a condemnation. FOR.
"Send forth all legions! Do not stop the attack until the city is taken! Slay them all!"
>Can I invade other people's regions?

Yes. The practice of "region crashing," where a group of nations all move to a region with the aim of seizing the WA Delegate position, is part of the game. Certain groups within NationStates are particularly adroit at this, and can attack very quickly.
>Once I've taken over a region, can I eject everyone else?

You can try. Invader Delegates tend to have very little Regional Influence, which makes ejecting long-time residents difficult. But Delegates can be as kind, generous, evil, or despotic as they wish. It's up to regional residents to elect good Delegates.
