Nordic Lands Regional Message Board
The problem with the great majority of world leaders is that they are pre-election-selected by the wealthy, and bribed by the wealthy, if they are not, this to do their bidding,and protect their vested interests.
Nothing meaningful will change in this planet, politicians are there to keep the status quo,perhaps even the "progressive" ones.
UN Antonio Guterres that so often talks about climate change, is like the modern Pope, he can cry and speak all he wants, but that is nothing more than empty talk, he is nothing more than a pathetic figure, (he was always a weak politician) as he must realize inside the infinite growth, monetarist, financialist and consumist capitalist system there are no viable solutions to save this planet, only to kill it,and kill it well.
The hard truth is that we need a system change, to resources instead of corrupt and inneficient monetarism, the question is when will humanity in its majority realize it, desire it, and fight for it.
Very few know, about Jaques Fresco´s (TVP) lectures and life works, despite he was awarded by the UN for his sustainable cities work, that for me is the least of his achievements, he never received a Nobel price, and he surely deserved one, or even several, why not, I suspect, because he was against this system,very critic of it, and unlike socialists and communists, he presented a viable alternative, and giving him an Nobel award would boost his cause, bringing him visibility,and making him theoretically extremely dangerous, only theoretically, because he never advocated violence or violent revolution, as that would end being counter productive.
The world is kinda messed up, isn't it? There are too many things to worry about: climate change and climate change denying rhetoric, the vilification of capitalism and the false idea (or so I've seen from the US) that far left socialism is some sort of attainable ideal (or worse, that socialism is when health free) the increasing vassalization of the developing world by China, the reach of the USA's enemies' intelligence prowess (which might sound from me like a pro-US, anti-Russia and China thing, or so I'm told online; the USA's meddling in foreign affairs in the Cold War was terrible and has had long lasting impacts on all of Latin America, but today I don't see them as the threat)... it's too much to handle!
And it makes me angry when I read online that Americans claim that were Trump to win he'd install a dynasty of Trumps to govern the USA for the next three decades. It makes me angry for Americans to call their own country a failed state, while they have power and running water in even the most bumstuck rural town in Mississippi (maybe not in Flint? Idk), a stable currency and a functioning, somewhat transparent democracy. It really, really angers me. I don't deny that societal tensions in the US are flaring up, and in fact I'd blame the Trump administration for governing the country with that division in mind, but I feel like some Americans take so much for granted.
And while I worry about that, I have to worry about my own country: about how we've printed more money than we printed in two years in nine months; about how we're so indebted that nobody will lend us money despite our federal reserves running on empty; about how the peso has lost, through taxes which created a virtual and black market devaluation, 100% of its value since January; about how the feverous voters of our criminally charged government officials, from the vice president to the health minister, find a way to defend absolutely anything their idols do; about how the last standing stronghold for the opposition, the autonomous capital city, has been stripped of 40 billion pesos in budget to be handed over to the biggest province in the country, led by the standing government; about how I've essentially been locked inside my house for 190 days because of the coronavirus and, despite a medical breakthrough in the center of the country, we're still waiting on a vaccine which might come in a matter of years to remove the need for a circulation permit to leave your house.
I'm really, really, really done. I couldn't possibly be more anxious.
And I have a stupid chemistry test in an hour and I'm sure I'll fail.
The last time I was this sad about someone stepping down Obama was leaving the White House. Skundi, on this 26th day of September, 2020, has left their long standing position or Foreign Secretary. Why? Well, Foreign Secretary wasn't quite the job the Banana Duck wanted, instead they want to "write more bills for the HoC, and I can only do that not in a demanding government position". As well as that Skundi is planning on "starting a Loranian News Service (totally different to SS’ one don’t worry) providing fact-checking, opinion and just general news articles". Totally different? I imagine that is supposed to mean totally better. Whatever the case, we will need a new Foreign Secretary. Skundi has nominated Liberated Wales, an excellent choice if I do say so myself. Liberated Wales has accepted gratefully this duty, and states that it is the best position for them. I wish both of them luck, as they navigate the these waters of Loranian politics.
Yashou japan, as they usually go by, has come to Lorania as Paran toho. On their arrival Liberated Wales notified us that they are the scum of NS, a true ne'er-do-well. My first inclination was to get proof of this, what did they do? Liberated Wales sent me a TG of a TG from source I do not wish to disclose. This TG outlined the doings of this most foul nation. These doing included impersonation of other nations, spamming, election rigging, plagiarizing, and general treason. Should we have a nation like that threatening the safety of Lorania, and so soon after the Bio incident? Well, while changing the regional code to Code Yellow, I allowed Paran toho to stay. However this was much to the dismay of some residents, and I will be keeping an ever peeled I on this nation.
Sh!t... I thought Bio was banned. If you don't remember them see my previous issue. Anyway, they have returned as Oijisa2. Technically they are allowed back, their sentence was banishment form the region for one week. Are we going to allow them to stay here, eh... maybe. I believe in second chances, so I guess even the nations like Bio deserve them. Oh wait, what is this I see? 30 or so suppressed posts, many by Oijisa2 as well as Tai Pei. Our two regional buffoons. We have gotten used to Tai Pei's antics, even enjoying them. But it seems they have gone too far. Oijisa2 and Tai Pei seem to have gotten into an intense argument starting with the proper punctuation of Oijisa2's factbook. Both nations let fly their best insults, Oijisa2 going for the more schoolyard bully approach as Tai Pei remained an intellectual. In light of these occurrences the government has come to the conclusion that we must have OOC laws and be able to eject and ban nations without going through IC procedures.
The latest issue, enjoy
^Yeah was it the same flag you have had for a few years?
Well, I had just posted a few comments on the forums for the first time in ages and since the mods don't have lives, a few of them were there, of course. I happened to disagree with one of them, too. I guess that's how they accidentally stumbled upon my 'offensive' flag. Ironically, one of the threads I commented on was a thread about the banning of flags in real life (i.e. German Reich flag, German Imperial flag, Confederate flag etc.).
So yeah, it was clearly a manual removal.
On this account, yes. Not my 'main' account, Copenhagen Metropolis, which was banned.
Guess I'll just use that old flag for the time being. Aaahhh, the nostalgia :)
This nation's flag, the one that was just removed for being 'offensive', was this one: quadrant.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/hitler-on-a-sled.jpg
