  1. "Barbarian"? *chuckles* I always try to choose my words carefully. What is a barbarian? Stranger, from the original greek. But now it means something much more: uncivilized. Out in the wilderness. Beyond the rules and mores of organized society. That is most decidedly what we are not. The purpose of Order is to give nations the freedom from the barbarity of the unaligned. My comrade Vladimir and I have been writing about this problem for well more than a decade. What is an alliance, if not freedom from the piracy of raiders? How can a nation trade, if it is to be attacked and sanctioned by whim? Trade and commerce is bred through Order: understanding the rules of the road; understanding what gets one sanctioned, and what does not. There are few attacks that go more to the heart of what Francoism tries to achieve than that of a rogue. Ideas and policies, such as whom to sanction, must flow through the meritocratic bureaucracy that is alliance government and inter-alliance relations, not the whim of one nation. Who can predict whims? Not I, and not any man. But a Francoist can predict governance, for through the unification of sovereignty in a wise and meritocratic bureaucracy, we can understand the reasons of man.
  2. That's not really where our tech came from. I strongly encourage you to take a walking tour of the historical Francograd Technology District, where the old Technology Corps was founded. There you can learn how tech was made back in a time that may seemingly sound relevant to you, as well as how technology creation and distribution methods have developed since. Hail progress! Hail Pacifica!

  4. I would kindly recommend reading some of my comrade Vladimir's works or might I humbly suggest my own, to enlighten yourself as to the meaning of permanent revolution.
  5. Indeed. Pacifica long ago cast aside this notion of "grudges" as being remarkably unproductive. I was Emperor more than half a decade ago, and [i]I[/i] cast aside grudges, though many others on Planet Bob did not. It's a poor ruler whose only justification for spending blood and treasure are emotions and ill-feelings of years past. Pacifica spends neither so lightly.
  6. Let me fix that for you: Anything is possible when you eat babies.
  7. When I founded the Technology Corps of the New Pacific Order over 8 years ago, it was the first state-sponsored organization in existence on Planet Bob to help procure technology to member nations. I wrote the FAQ for it, and I still remember the answer to this question:
  8. Please don't bring PUA crap into CN. We have enough garbage as it is.
  9. And the 1992-3 Toronto Blue Jays.
  10. I was a little mad that no one in my alliance told me we had been declared on. But then I read this topic.
