Right to Life Regional Message Board
It would seem that another ally has been raided...
While I don't normally like psychologists, I thought both of these articles made valid observations and would be of some interest:
1) "Why Conservatives and Liberals Are Not Experiencing the Same Pandemic": https://heterodoxacademy.org/social-science-liberals-conservatives-covid-19/
2) "Our Big Fight Over Nothing: The Political Spectrum Does Not Exist": https://heterodoxacademy.org/social-science-political-spectrum/
I know candidate announcements aren't for another few days, but is anyone thinking of running for Senate or Speaker?
Also, do we do roleplay here? Now that I'm on the map, I'm interested in global conquest persuasive diplomacy.
Re: this, I'd broadly agree with Steve Allen who said "Tragedy plus time plus the will to be amused equals comedy."
The thing about abortion is that it is -- for the largest part -- an ongoing tragedy. If it was something that occurred 500 years ago but doesn't any more, then it'd probably be okay to joke about. We can make jokes about the Spanish Inquisition (vide Monty Python) because it was so long ago.
Having said that, I also wouldn't say that any topic is off-limits to humour, especially good satirical humour. I say this, of course, from a position of being a major contributor to a satirical webgame that you're all currently playing. We've got issues about honour killing, human trafficking, rape and -- yes, as we're discussing -- about abortion. These issues cover serious ongoing topics, but equally they don't shy away from delivering jokes either. I think sometimes its not so much a question of verboten topics, but rather about good taste and sensitivity to all points of view.
As an example, Issue 1319 was written by an editor that is largely in favour of abortion, and edited by one that is largely against abortion, though both of us are moderate in our stances in that we believe in some exceptions to our positions. That's an issue about abortions, and discusses a very serious issue -- what if aborting a foetus (that has low chance of life) is the best way to increase maternal chances of survival? And yet it's not an issue that avoids jokes altogether. There's a Minister of Problematic Trolleys as one speaker. Other speakers are mildly hypocritical -- one pro-life speaker has eight children that he never sees, for example. However we stop short of making light of dead babies (as many jokes in the world do, and I could tell you a few as exempla, but you wouldn't appreciate me doing so) because that's poor taste and an insensitive approach to the ongoing tragedy of human foetal deaths.
To swing this back to topic, I think however that while it's allowable for folk to make jokes, and allowable for people to have a pro-choice stance, it's also entirely sound for a region that is explicitly about Right to Life to cut off links with a region that is explicitly against that stance.
My main nation's region, Forest, wouldn't think twice about cutting off links with a region that has explicitly anti-environmental views. We respect the rights of other folk to adopt the Trump style environment-denier stance, we just don't want to be associated with them. On the other hand, while most Forest folk (like most people in the world in general) lean towards pro-choice rather than pro-life, that stance is not an issue when it comes to embassies, because the region's raison d'etre is environmentalism, not pro-choice.
It just makes no sense for this region to act differently when it comes to explicitly anti-life views. If a few people there are pro-choice, that's a matter for persuasion and discussion. But when a region formally takes that stance, its time to cut off ties.
Poland's Duda narrowly beats Trzaskowski in presidential vote
The National Electoral Commission said Mr Duda had won 51.2% of the votes.
It is Poland's slimmest presidential election victory since the end of communism in 1989.
One of the major issues of the election was the future of the country's strained relations with the European Union.
Mr Duda is a social conservative allied with the government led by the nationalist Law and Justice (PiS) party, while Mr Trzaskowski is the socially liberal mayor of Warsaw.
I do not agree... PiS is way too submissive towards the US and they sell national firms and property to companies from other countries...
Poland getting allied and being submissive to them seems like a curse of our nation since our initial parting. Be it USSR or USA, or even UK. A big country that doesn't care much for the good of our country that is only "collecting allies" in case or for a bigger threat. European Union is not the best, considering it is mostly of german and french influence, but the alliance with the eastern european countries would be better for Poland than US or EU would be.
Since PiS rules in Poland all prices went larger and many state "funds" were raised, which many times are way bigger than the taxes that were supposed to be lowered, but were in truth only switched from one place to another, or even made bigger in some places. VAT did get lower in many cases, but that was not lowering the tax, but rather changing the way it is collected and its basis.
I have officially opened another region for roleplay as we were not allowed to roleplay in this region, at least for now, as my stance on roleplay is completely different than the rest of the government at the moment.
Oh, that's too bad. Is anyone from here active?
Well I could argue that Civic Platform is too submissive to the E.U. and they are positioning themselves as being the 'party of Europe' in Poland, no doubt they will argue for even more integration with the rest of Europe, wanting to tie the economy more and more with the single market, resulting in German-Franco monopolies. Not to mention more interference from the European troika, the European Parliament, the European Commission and European Court.
Poland's relationship with the U.S. is perhaps the best one given its surrounding political geography. The U.S. is powerful enough to ensure that countries such as Russia will not be too quick to apply pressure to the country, whilst it is far away enough to not politically dominate the country's political-economic structure, unlike the E.U.. In terms of other Eastern European countries I highly doubt Viktor Orbαn of Hungary would be open to a party like Civic Platform and vice versa.
Whatever the PiS's failings in their economic policies may be it sure is a lot more better than neo-liberalism and if Civic Platform's former leaders are anything to go by, Donald Tusk for example, Poland would be better off with PiS in the long run.
I'd also say that my main reason for liking Duda is because of his strong stances on issues like support for family, the public role of the Church, opposing LGBT ideology from creeping into Poland from the West and his stance on not allowing the E.U. to interfere with issues of national sovereignty. The PiS being economically on the left is also an attraction too.
I banned someone? That's news to me, because you literally made that up. Try again...
I have not brought the RCN/LCN issues into why I, as a RTL citizen and former government member (via New Sequoyah) advocate for the suspension of embassies with the LCN.
