      Out-Of-Character (OOC)/In-Character (IC) Tag Usage   04/18/2016

      A reminder of some rules that are important to remember in this forum, and especially in times of war when the feelings get heated: What is not allowed: * mentioning or alluding to "real life," including referring to a so-called game, a server, players, and other related terms. * flaming. That's right, flaming is still not allowed, even during a war. Imagine that! * spam posts and attempts to e-lawyer your way around what is considered a spam post (one-word or multi-word contentless posts, images posted with no, one, or contentless words, any combination of annoying contentless spam phrases, posts like "interesting," "this is interesting," etc that contribute nothing other than a +1 to your post count, "in before X" posts, etc). * mentioning or alluding to Moderation issues or reporting other leaders ("your post is breaking X rule," "I'm reporting you for X rule infraction," etc) What is allowed: * telling the world about your alliance/alliance business or sharing your opinion about other alliances/alliance business as a leader of your nation. * mention of IRC and forums. These are considered as means of communications between leaders. If you encounter what you believe to be a rule infraction, post it here following the pinned guidelines. Alliance leaders, please feel free to encourage your members to read this thread and make a renewed effort to follow the rules. The ninjas will appreciate it. The use of OOC Tags: * Putting OOC tags around one word is merely attempting to circumvent the roleplay rules around certain words that fly in the face of what the roleplay section is about. Most notably: game. Note: Game is allowed in reference to the political game but not allowed in reference to implying that users are playing a pixel game. * Using OOC tags around an entire post is merely a blatant attempt to make an OOC post in an IC forum without getting caught. For a further detail description of what is an appropriate and inappropriate use of OOC tags refer to Megabyte's post here.

The Communist International


Communist and socialist parties around the globe have been invited to send delegates to a new International to be had in the capital city of the new Democratic People's Republic of Guanwai, Mukden. It will be headed by Premier Zhang, who will also be - along with several other delegates - representing Guanwai at the congress. Among the topics discussed will be the current state of socialism, as well as how the interests of our movement can be furthered. Edited by Hereno

Gottlieb Nussenbaum, leader of the underground Alvonian Arbeiterpartei has arrived in Mukden. He has arrived at his hotel and is preparing for the conferences events with his translator.

 

Private

 

In reality, Nussenbaum was a spy for the Bundesnachrichtendienst. His mission was to infiltrate the conference and take notes on the attendees, to determine if Bolshevik tendencies were present in them and their party views. If so, and if Nussenbaum came back with his notes, the host nations of the parties would be subjected to increased BND surveillance.

To the government in Shanghai Chin Lang was a psycopath Communist who believed the people of Shanghai were destined to rule all of Asia. He had been called a terrorist on numerous occasions but no one had any evidence to support those claims so legally they could not touch him. However that did not stop them from sending various assasins after him which was why for the time being he decided to stay out of Shanghai but with the elections for the Shanghai Parliament coming up he needed to step up his game and prove to the world he was not a terrorist as others believed. His son Kai Lang was with him and right now was the public leader of the party in Shanghai while his father truely lead them in private from other parts of the world. He knew his father was being hunted by assasins and he didn't like his father's plan. "Are you sure it is a good idea for you to show yourself in public like this?"

 

"The people of Shanghai and the rest of Asia need to know that I will not stand idly by while the Imperialists ruin our once great Communist Empire and spread false accusations and rumors about me. It is time to stand up for what we believe in and if they do send an assasin after me than I shall go down as a martyr for our cause. Our people were destined to rule China and with the help of our Comrades here in Guanwai we can achieve that goal."

 

They would wait at their hotel until the meeting was ready to begin.

Given the fact that the Zapadnayan Socialist Party found communism to be 'incompatible with reality' and that the Communist party was not allowed to participate in politics there would not be a significant delegation from Zapadnaya. Instead the sole individual who would attend the conference would be Mr. Stefan Nikolov, the Deputy General Secretary of the Communist party. Out of an abundance of caution, Mr. Nikolov would register as an observer delegate.

When attempting to register, Mr. Nikolov would find that his request could not be granted. The Guanwai administrators informed him that there were no provisions for the allowance of observer delegates. While he would be welcome to attend and represent the Zapadnayan Communist Party, he could only do so as a general delegate.

Somewhat reluctantly, Stefan Nikolov registered as the delegate of the Zapadnayan Communist party.

A letter was sent to Comintern from the headquarters of the Social Democratic Party, the governing party of the Federation, asking whether parties of a more moderate, non-Marxist-Leninist-etc. persuasion were welcome at the conference. The current SDP government has shown signs of expanding social programs in the Federation while retaining a multiparty democratic system and steering away from either economic policy extreme as undesirable.

 

The Parti communiste du Québec, a regional party holding a sizable minority of seats in the South Quebec legislature and not registered at the federal level, has also expressed its interest in attending. PCQ was rather more left-wing than the SDP, and favored slowly shifting to an increased level of state-controlled enterprises, especially in the mining and arms industries. At the federal level, they tended to place their votes behind the SDP as the main center-left party, but in provincial affairs they were quite dissimilar in their goals.

A quick reply would indicate that democratic socialists as well as Marxist-Leninist(-Maoist) and anarchist groups are all invited to send representatives. However, the center-left social democratic parties would not find many allies at the International. Any party with the end-goal of eliminating capitalism is welcome.

PCQ and SDP each sent a representative to the conference. The SDP representative was James Luxembourg MP, representing the riding of Windsor West, South Ontario in the Federation Parliament. The PCQ representative was Celeste Monet, a member of the provincial legislature in South Quebec. They'd travel to the conference on a commercial flight; the same one, in fact.

The Polish People's Party is a very small organization. Though small, it has a great deal of support in certain academic circles. Even a few captain's of industry have been known to set a little aside for the Party's coffers on occasion when they needed large crowds of screaming protestors at their competition's gates. Most Poles have a certain repugnance for the People's Party due to the legacy left behind by the Soviet Occupation of Poland, but are willing to tolerate the existence of the party as a historical abberation.

 

No matter what the reasons for the Party still existing, a delegate would be put on a plane and sent to the meeting. Stanslaw Luncucki, a university graduate and aspiring writer, would be given a ticket and a pocket full of cash taken out of the Party's account with the National Bank of Poland.

 

Upon arrival he would rejoice at being in a People's Paradise and promptly take his seat at the meeting to get on with the business of spreading the revolution.

The International


NPC1.jpg


The delegates from parties around the world filed into the room and stood tall, with the Internationale playing in various languages so that all might hear it in their own (ooc: click the image). This would go on for about an hour, with the delegates becoming increasingly bored and wondering when the meeting would really begin. By the time it did, they would all be sitting down, many of them resorting to drawing stick figures of Marx and Engels in various hijinks on the papers they were supposed to be taking notes on. As it turns out, Communists are quite the artists, and by the time the delegation from Guanwai had entered the room, comic strips were being broadcast on a squeaky old overhead projector...

The delegates from Guanwai were not very impressed with the comic, although they knew they had a great gathering of leftists because they had somehow managed to procure an overhead projector in this day and age. The room fell silent as Premier Zhong walked in, went up to the podium, and began to speak...

[OOC: Part one of like 2-3. I'm really busy so you're gonna have to wait for the speech and discussion part.]

As the lecture went on Jackie became very bored and ended up helping the others with the comics and other fun stuff. They did notice his father died recently and gave him their condolences but honestly he didn't really care what they thought. His father was the one responsible for launching the first nukes at China starting the war and Jackie had no choice but to kill him to stop him from trying anything like that ever again. To some they might see Jackie as a hero if they knew the truth of what happened but others might not see it that way which was why he had to keep it a secret. So far everyone seemed to buy the story that it was a horrible accident and that how it needed to stay. He would take notes on the lecture when really important stuff came up but at this point he just wanted it to end.

Public

Robert has announced that he will attend the summit meeting be he also stated that he did not share the values and ideals of socialism nor communism but he does see the potential of it being economical."There is no easy way to say this but communism and Socialism  are both good choices of it being economical but at the same time it puts to much power into one person and it takes away for the peoples right to chose for themselves and leaves all of that power in the state." at that Robert boarded the plane to go and attend the meeting.

The almost hour long renditions of the Internationale combined with the continued delay, greatly annoyed Stefan Nikolov. For a moment, he regretted his decision to attend the conference and wondered if the consequences of his attendance would be worth the benefits. To pass the time until the conference began, Nikolov read a copy of Margaret Thatcher’s Biography.

Premier Zhang shuffled some papers on his podium as the cartoonists waddled hastily back to their seats. He grinned with confidence, looking up at an audience relieved to see him and eager to hear something of importance fall off of his tongue. Translators across the room readied themselves to begin translating in over a dozen languages, several of whom were "on loan" from Guanwai to help their comrades abroad who did not have anyone who spoke Mandarin.
 
"Greetings comrades, and thank you all for attending this international conference of Communists for the purposes of furthering the goal of revolution across the globe. In 1920, Comrade Lenin at his third international in the wake of the great Bolshevik uprising in the Russian Empire established twenty one conditions for admission to the international which laid out the Russians' plan to unite all workers of the world under the principles of democratic centralism. Through the legacy of Marx and Engels, with practical theoretical additions and development by Lenin, Stalin, and Mao, we seek to succeed where they failed. By learning from their mistakes, we will destroy the Khrushchevite pig-dog revisionists and their capitalist allies, avoid the great splits among the Communist parties of old which led to our division, and take the most developed theories of communism to their conclusions.
 
It is for this purpose that I lay before you a new set of conditions inspired by the work of millions of Marxist-Leninists who have fought and died for their freedom. Those parties which agree to these conditions in the next few days will be allowed much benefit at the expense of all of the peoples of Guanwai who are ready and willing to unite the proletarians of all nations under the vanguard of the Democratic People's Republic which hosts you today."
 
At this time, papers were handed out to all attendees with a set of conditions authored by Premier Zhang himself. They were permitted to leave to their hotel rooms whenever they wished, but would need to communicate their intentions to the Guanwai politburo before being given access to the airport to leave.
 

 

Nine Conditions of Admission to the Communist International

 
1. All propaganda and agitation must bear a really communist character and correspond to the program and decisions of the Communist International.
 
2. Every organization that wishes to affiliate to the Communist International must regularly and methodically remove reformists from their ranks.
 
3. Systematic and methodical agitation is necessary in the countryside, and all parties to the International recognize this importance.
 
4. Every party that wishes to belong to the Communist International must systematically and persistently develop communist activities within the trades unions, consumer co-operatives, and other mass worker's organizations.
 
5. Parties that wish to belong to the Communist International have the obligation to subject the personal composition of their parliamentary factions to review.
 
6. The parties belonging to the Communist International must be built on the basis of the principle of democratic centralism.
 
7. Mao Zedong Thought will be recognized by all parties as the most recent development of Marxist-Leninist thought.
 
8. All decisions of the Congresses of the Communist International and decisions of its Executive Committee are binding on all parties belonging to the Communist International.
 
9. Those party members who fundamentally reject the conditions and Theses laid down by the Communist International are to be expelled from the party.

"Comrade Anatole, from the Alaskan Revolutionary Socialist Party. I would like to dispute points three and seven. We feel that too much emphasis on agitation in the peasantry will lead to a side-lining of the urban working class - which in most countries is the far larger, far more important layer of the proletariat. Concerning point seven, the ARSP official positions state that the theoretical works of Enver Hoxha are the newest and most correct additions to Marxism-Leninism. We propose that point seven acknowledge that Hoxhaism - most importantly it's principled defence of the right of each nation to find it's own path to socialism - is acknowledged as the most recent development of Marxist thought."

"I think I'd be shot by the trade unionists if I tried agitating for our beloved party at a Union meeting. They are still pissed about that whole Soviet Union thing that went down several decades ago."

The Federation citizens present at the meeting took the lengthy renditions of the Internationale a little differently. Mr. Luxembourg made sure to stand respectfully, but remained silent. Ms. Monet, on the other hand, made sure to sing along when it was presented in English and then its original French, the official languages of the Federation.

 

Once that was over, both delegates returned to their seats and looked over the list of conditions. The SDP delegate, taking one look at the list, placed his hand over his mouth. Was he shocked, or trying to stifle a laugh? Either way, he took a glance at the rest of the points that was taking much less time than he'd first intended, then began to take notes. He didn't seem too impressed with the conference so far, but stayed silent until his note-taking was complete.

 

The PCQ delegate took a few minutes to read over the text fully. On her second readthrough, she was resting her forehead in her palm, looking much like a student that had been handed an exam she hadn't studied for, and had instead spent the previous night drinking. PCQ was marginalized enough in the Federation, but adhering to all of these principles would doubtless make the membership rolls shrink considerably. Moreover, they may even lose their support for the next provincial legislature election and have to ally themselves with a more capitalist-friendly party, like they did at the federal level. Just as she was thinking of that, Monet glanced to the side and spotted the SDP representative.

 

Luxembourg caught her eye and noticed the bemused expression on her face, then simply shrugged. Monet waited for her turn to speak and raised her hand to be recognized.

 

"Some of these conditions do not seem to take into account that some parties present may be from countries with a largely post-industrial economy that focuses on the service sector, such as the Federation. While it is true that the Federation has a robust aerospace and automotive sector, this ultimately takes a back seat to services, especially finance and real estate.

 

We can certainly agitate in the countryside and in the cities, but a good chunk of the Federation's population will be left unrepresented if we do not extend such propagandizing to the service sector. While PCQ does not wish to overlook the contributions of the farmers and laborers to international communism, I would still like to see some support for those who are exploited by the capitalists on a more subtle level, such as white-collar workers who are less likely to form unions or fight for their rights in the workplace.

 

Moreover...we do not recognize Maoism as a realistic solution in many modern situations. PCQ does not have an armed wing, and PCQ does not intend to take up arms against its government. We have a legitimate position in the provincial assembly in South Quebec, and we will not jeopardize that by presenting an ultimatum to our membership to accept Maoist ideals or leave, as per the ninth condition."

"I have to agree with my international comrades," Gottlieb Nussenbaum said after listening to the German translation, "agricultural agitation and armed resistance simply is not possible in Alvonia. Already my party has been driven deep underground by the Wehrmacht's and Schwarze Korps's crackdowns. If any armed resistance were to happen in Alvonia, it would have to be a total overthrow of the current government."

A representative from Druk Yul's Socialist Democratic party rose and spoke, "Our nation has taken upon itself to try an interesting application of communist doctrine in which it is selectively applied to industries that are most responsive to productive increases from centralized form. While keeping other industry, whose production's value is the subject of popular opinion such as the arts.. under a freemarket system. In such way the needs of the people are seen, and their desires are equally met. Key industries which have been almost wholly given over to communist doctrine are basic food, water, shelter, clothing, and healthcare. Our government believes it the ideal form of government institution where all are cared for and the creative and innovative are rewarded."

Jackie would speak openly as well. "Shanghai has also been implementing a system similar to Druk Yul where all the citizens are free to choose which way they would like their buisnesses to be while using bigger communist systems for all of their utilities such as food, water, power, healthcare, and other stuff like that. It has worked well so far and with the upcoming elections my party will continue to try to implement more communist ideas into more stuff while still keeping the majority of the people happy."
