The Social Liberal Union Regional Message Board

Croanique wrote:That's a good point! Reading the thread on the GA Forum it looks like someone else brought up both of these concerns a few days ago before the resolution went up to vote, and their concerns were never acknowledged in the thread. I might recommend posting in there! I'm also concerned by the vague wording in clause 1b, believing that it leaves too much room for governments to declare criminal activity where there may not legitimately be in the name of disassembling an organization. I've seen it quoted before that if you care about civil rights you must first, always, care about criminal rights, because the only thing a government subsequently has to do to take your rights away is declare you a criminal. This resolution seems well-intentioned, but with the current phrasing does nearly the opposite of placing protections on organizations or the people assembling within them.

When discussing protections, you must also discuss protecting those groups. As a trans woman myself, I think that everyone should get a say,even if the say is saying that trans people arent real "women" or real "men"

It seems like I get at LEAST one issue about repealing socialism every day. (Today it was two.) Very tired of picking options that just tank my economy further apparently just For The Lolz or else dismissing issues. I get it, Max, you're a capitalist, I'm not and I'd still like to be able to play this game and talk about other things occasionally. Capitalism vs. Socialism vs. Communism is not, in fact, the only political decision that matters.

NationStates is fun and all, but its also blatantly pro-capitalist... the issues are full of misinformed assumptions about socialism vs capitalism, and negative freedom vs positive freedom

It might stem from people associating the USSR and China with "socialism", even though those countries were far from it.

Also stems from mostly moderates, economic liberals, etc writing issues over the years. One thing you can do is submit your own issues that push NS in a better direction, as much as the mods/admin/whoever is in charge of approving them may play gatekeeper.

Issues do literally use the word "Communism" interchangably with Socialism. :/

Yeah. The USSR was not socialist, and definitely not communist. People just need to do a bit of research about what the terms mean before they write issues about it

It wasn’t? Isn’t it’s name literally “Union of Soviet SOCIALIST Republics”?
