How many strokes did you have while writing this? Because I'm honestly not sure what you're going on about. Is there supposed to be a coherent thought in there somewhere?
All that aside, what does it matter to you whether the Orders have 'abandoned' Francoism. What was Francoism in the first place? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Francoism was never a consistent or even coherent ideology in the first place. It was never anything more than a flimsy excuse written in an ungodly number of words to justify whatever NPO (Polar was never really all that big on the 'Francoism', that was more the Pacific's schtick) was doing at any particular moment. It was impossible for 'Francoism' to make any sort of real sense because it was always changing to be whatever NPO needed it to be to explain why it was doing whatever it was doing that was ticking everyone off. Not that they ever needed a reason, but they did like to put up the pretense that there was a reason.
But bah I say. Bah.
OOC: I suppose what I am trying to say it that nobody cared the least about 'Francoism' or thought anything of it until a few years ago. It was never anything more than some silly thing in a game. Granted, I suppose there were some criticisms that there was a bit of a fascistic aesthetic, but again it was no more than a silly game thing. I enjoy railing on NPO as much as anyone, but they aren't truly pricks outside the game (well, most of them anyway...but that can be said for just about any group here).
Given recent developments in the world and an upswing in fascist and authoritarian mindsets I do understand why they would want to distance themselves from that kind of imagery. Even if it was never more than a silly game thing the fact is there are people out there who would take it far more seriously than it ought to be taken. There's a reason that none of them mind leaving 'Francoism' behind. So I must wonder why you are so attached it.
