  1. Francoism is Dead   I have decided to divorce myself from Francoism for several reasons.   First of all, though many of the founding tenets of Francoism remain true, they are expressed from the viewpoint of a long gone time. To the majority of the population, the ancient heroes are simply legends or rumors. It was a time of glory in a world four times more populated than today's apocalyptic wasteland.     Second, Francoism is NPO-centric. Anything that happens outside of NPO is not considered Francoist, regardless of historical parallels. As I was only a Pacifican under the benevolent reign of Cortath, I do not wish to be affiliated with the crimes committed outside that time in the name of Francoism, including my own EZI and the disbandment of IAA.   Third, Pacifica itself does not actively support the original tenets of Francoism. There is no attempt by Pacifican Leadership today to link alliance policy to Francoism. So, if Francoism is NPO-centric, but not NPO policy, that means Francoism is a dead ideology. A strong case can be made that Francoism went inactive when Vladimir went inactive.   With these points understood, it becomes clear that, although Vladimirist-Francoism is dead, it deserves a living heir.   As stated by the General Program of the now defunct Revolutionary Order Party, which would influence the 2014 June Constitution of LoSS:       Articles like The Meaning of Freedom and The Sage and the Student still hold tremendous vitality, but as they represent the events of a time long-gone their lessons must be re-interpreted and applied against the issues we struggle with today.   Inactivity is Death   An ideology is not relevant if it does not constantly struggle against competing ideologies for dominance. It is through the conflict of ideas and rhetoric that an ideology hones itself into a weapon. However, a weapon can be used by different types of warriors.   Some warriors, as a consequence of ancient military conquests, revolutions, and political struggles, rise to a very high social position within an alliance, and being satisfied with their accomplishments and fearing to seize more, they use it as a citadel against new warriors who would come and replace them. Over time, they become less active, and others would rise to take their place are blocked from ascendance. The internalized aggression that results forces talented newer players away, and slowly the alliance stagnates from within.     This aberration of the spirit is what slowly strangled alliances like LoSS, until a revolution occurred in June of last year, when I rewrote the constitution of LoSS and the alliance prepared for a rejuvenating merger into SNX. It is arguable that the vast majority of peripheral and secondary alliances are in this condition today, with national capital locked in the administrative hands of inactive leaders, incapable and undesiring of leading their alliance to new victories.   They are the old men who spend their mornings golfing with the good old boys, who ignore the urgent messages of their subordinates, fearing no wars abroad, no loss of membership, for their positions are comfortable and secure. No external war will sweep their AA ownership away.   Alliance Rejuvenation   Then there is a rarer type of leader. This leader does not age, has inexhaustible energy and Will. Even in old age he is fit and deadly, and experience has only honed his physical and mental capabilities. He is the natural conqueror, the Ivan Moldavis, Electron Sponges and Francisco Francos of old.     He does not build his alliance into a citadel against internal struggle, but instead, welcomes struggle. More importantly, he is an expansionist. Rather than driving off foreign talent, he will continuously lure them in with new executive positions, and build an ever expanding empire abroad, supporting the formation of new protectorates and build an aggressive military-industrial complex capable of protecting them. He will not allow ministers to become content with their position, but will hold them accountable to planned goals and the rivalries of others who would struggle to serve instead.     He has an understanding of strategy and political necessity. He will see threats and act against them. He will build alliances with the strong, and teach strength to the weak. He will fight in the vanguard where the fighting is thickest, never taking prisoners, and always urging his comrades forward. Knowing that he cannot be everywhere at once, he strives to inspire others to greatness. He will teach that strength is in obedience, that only through a unified doctrine and ideology can cancer be driven out and the alliance reach its full potential.     This type of leader comes from within the common ranks, the younger, more ambitious, more active membership. To him, this world is not old and stagnant, but vibrant and full of life. The word "We" and not "I" is what he says frequently. He is the Alliance Superman, never tiring, never giving up, but always struggling for prosperity and Order.   A New Producerist Order   What makes the Alliance Superman so powerful is that he does not strive for position, for social status... he strives for Order. When you combine Belief with Will, not even the heavens will deny you. This is because when enough people see the world a certain way, the world cannot help to become that way, it cannot fail to become the dream that you have for it. While others laugh and scorn, you are busy building, box after box, foundation after foundation, not serving bureaucratic whims, not following some insipid plan, but following what you know to be true within your heart. And slowly from the dirt a new building rises, and the alliance improves.     Any member can become an alliance Superman if he follows his heart and does what he knows is right. He does not scorn his adversaries within, but rather, he pities those who cannot see past their own noses. He grasps that his strength originates from the comrade next to him, and that there is always a comrade in a worse position than himself. He is willing to sacrifice hours that could be spent on rest and pleasure lend a hand to a comrade in need.   One could say "yes, but must I sacrifice alot?" That is the glory of giving! When you sacrifice for your Alliance you can hold your head high. Knowing that even as a lowly recruiter you are recruiting a future Superman; even as a lowly diplomat you are forging ties that strengthen your alliance. You should never be content to say, "This is what I have done;" instead you must say, "This is what I Will myself to do!"   The Producerist State will never fall from the sky, but instead it must be cultivated within the Alliance membership. I know many of you have been frustrated that, no matter how much work you put into your alliance, nothing ever changes. Sometimes the old bureaucracy must be swept away to make room for something new and more dynamic. A bureaucracy should not serve the needs of the bureaucracy, but should instead be disciplined, should be held accountable to planned goals. Activity is not enough; what an Alliance really needs is ferver, fanaticism, unyielding belief! And only within the producing elements of the common membership can these values be found!   Help Yourselves!     The Producerist Ideal can be distilled into the following Virtues: Tenacity at Work Efficiency of Action and Word Physical and Moral Courage Absolute Loyalty in personal relations Firmness in Decisions Affection for Comrades Hatred for Enemies of the Alliance Honor and Faith in Oaths taken Respect for Tradition, But at the same time desire for the accomplishments of tomorrow It is through these values that an Alliance will rejuvenate itself, establishing stability for its membership, and guiding the Will of the Alliance in the direction of ambition and strength.

    LoSS Treaty Web Generator

    Finished 90% of necessary treaty updates to the LoSS treaty web generator, however, I am looking for more updates that must be made. If you notice any major treaties missing, please post the following in this blog or PM me: *Alliances involved *Treaty name *Link to treaty announcement or document This is important; an updated treaty web allows all nations to quickly understand the treaty web situation, leading to improved global political education and stability. Mahalo!
  3. Before returning to this world in the form of Tywin Lannister, I had spent some time externally surveying the political conditions of Planet Bob. As I conducted my analysis, I found that the ideological hegemony of the Mushroom Kingdom was nearing exhaustion, and after studying the treaty web, decided that House Baratheon was well placed to meet my ends. From deep in space, my plans developed and In September, I rerolled and applied to House Baratheon. I revealed my true identity to the Baratheons, and began working immediately to bring my plans into fruition. I contacted reliable individuals throughout CN who I had known and worked with years earlier, and for my services to House Baratheon, I was soon promoted to a deputy in government. At one point, on September 15, LAW, HB's protectorate, got into some trouble with GOONS and Babyjesus of Mushroom Kingdom. After hardballing them, I learned that GOONS was sincerely working to reverse their reputation of lulzism. However, I couldn't shake the unease I felt that the Mushroom Kingdom was up to something. REDACTED(MK GOVT) and Babyjesus were very concerned for GOONS, and although I did not know why at the time, I went on a gut feeling and aggressively negotiated the GOONS point (note some portions and identities are REDACTED). Note: at the time I was a deputy and not second in command of HB. Also, from this conversation I determined that GOONS was intending to improve its PR and reputation, and abandon lulzism.

MK was well connected and considered the "kings" of CN. But as I looked over the full logs and other evidence, it began to dawn on me that Mushroom kingdom was either rapidly losing political influence even sooner than I had expected, or preparing to attack someone and didn't want any complications. As I conducted open source research that night, I discovered Mushqaeda, an AA that had been formed some weeks previously. Worried, I recommended to the King that HB prepare for war just in case we were attacked. In the end, of course, it turned out that both were true: the more destabilizing, lulzist influences inside Mushroom Kingdom were preparing for a war against neutrality, and GOONS would have been unprotected if it were embroiled in a peripheral conflict. The Lulzism was finally dying, just as planned. On September 16, only one day later, Mushqaeda declared war on The Democratic Order. It was time for the nations of the world to strike down lulzism once and for all. On September 18, The Terran Empire was the first to counter Mushqaeda. I also learned of a character who went by the name ReyTheGreat when he illegitimately declared war on TTE from his alliance Los Pollos Hermanos. However, he was soon removed from power by his own alliance and cast out, forced to live amongst the Mushqaeda rogues. I learned that apparently he had angered members of HB in the past. It was then that I saw my opening, and began making preparations. I contacted various individuals, including the Great Chief Ubuntu, and many soon saw the need to defend global stability. It was amazing to see the overwhelming response of the international community against Mushqaeda.  I joined Zulu at the vanguard of the Crusaders, as hundreds of nations rode in to deliver The Democratic Order from their siege. As I hacked down the Mushqaeda terrorists fleeing before us, I witnessed ReytheGreat trying to sneak away in the chaos. At full gallop, I charged through Mushqaeda's dissolving ranks, and closed the gap. But I had underestimated my foe, and Rey slashed at my horse, throwing me to the ground. As I rose to my feet, he was upon me, and we fought oblivious to the carnage around us. ReytheGreat was a tough fight, but as the Mushqaeda force routed, reinforcements soon arrived to assist me. Finally, we pinned Rey to the ground and placed him under arrest for Terrorism against Neutrality. At this point we were entering early October. Feeling sorry for him, and a certain respect for his fighting ability, I talked to Yuurei and desired to seek his release in return for a single aid slot in reps from Rey to TTE. This is where things got interesting. Rey refused this generous offer and even began to claim that "if they keep hitting me NSO is gonna come through and wreck shit." I found this odd, as he was a member of Los Pollos Hermanos before going rogue with Mushqaeda. Why would NSO help Rey? I was determined to discover the truth. By October 8th I had learned just how destabilizing a force NSO was after visiting their forum. I revealed who I was to Hereno and Rayvon, and sought friendship in compromise. However, Rayvon apparently took my presence to be a threat to his legitimacy and the threats towards myself and my King began, merely three weeks before the Disorder War begun.

  7. Foreign Affairs is the best part of CN. Beginning as a diplomat, one can establish global networks from ones position representing the alliance. With time and skill, you can eventually help control the events and happenings of entire alliances. Foreign Affairs staff A good foreign affairs staff is both hierarchical and collaborative in nature. Although sensitive matters are generally handled by high government, the rest of the foreign affairs staff is equally important. An active and coordinated FA staff communicates the activity, pride, and literacy of an alliance. Diplomats are a bit like spies. It is the diplomat's job to collect open source information from the alliances they visit, and develop relationships among members of the host alliance. Through these relationships the diplomat can gain more valuable information. Thus, a good diplomat is able to report back well composed information and analysis on their host alliances. A very good diplomat will even be able to analyze less tangible information and attempt to derive the mood, ambition and motives of members within the host alliance. Thus, by presenting a well organized alliance dossier, higher government can act on the intelligence to maximum effect. Foreign Affairs goals An alliance always has two goals: to defend a strong position, and to attack the weaknesses in rivals. In other words, an alliance should first ensure its position is strong: that it is well protected by allies, that there are no internal compromises, that there are no reasons for casus belli against it. With this achieved, it can go on the offense, seeking to advance its political agenda and cripple a rival's one. The the alliance foreign affairs staff must communicate to reach a higher collective understanding. Even the information itself can be used to assist allies or be traded for other information. Understanding the global political atmosphere is most important. By understanding global politics, we can always prepare ourselves for the coming storms of war. Foreign Affairs leadership Thus Foreign Affairs staff are the most important element of an alliance's government. Having the strongest military in the world is of no good if your position is such that it is rendered ineffective. Foreign Affairs staff provide the true leadership in an alliance where the traditional leadership is uninterested in global affairs, and it is these alliances that need foreign affairs leadership the most. Treaties are one of the most important jobs of the FA leadership. The FA leaders must determine which treaties are beneficial to the alliance, and which ones are not. This analysis must first be rendered on existing treaties, and as relationships with host alliances develop, the analysis must be rendered to determine the value of a potential new treaty.
  8. I recommend enjoying the music in the video while reading these quotes. “Seeing the glass as half empty is more positive than seeing it as half full. Through such a lens the only choice is to pour more. That is righteous pessimism.” Criss Jami "Far better is to have a stout heart always and suffer one's share of evils, than to be ever fearing what may happen." Herodotus “Growth for the sake of growth is the ideology of the cancer cell.” Edward Abbey “Chaos was the law of nature; Order was the dream of man.” Henry Adams "A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves." Lao Tzu "Where there is no vision, the people perish." Proverbs 29:18 "Unity gives strength and assures success." Haile Selassie I "The skillful tactician may be likened to the [snake]. Strike at its head, and you will be attacked by its tail; strike at its tail, and you will be attacked by its head; strike at its middle, and you will be attacked by head and tail both. Asked if an army can be made to imitate the [snake], I should answer, Yes. For the men of Wu and the men of Yueh are enemies; yet if they are crossing a river in the same boat and are caught by a storm, they will come to each other's assistance just as the left hand helps the right." Sun Tzu "I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear." Nelson Mandela “The harder the conflict, the greater the triumph.” George Washington "What is good? All that heightens the feeling of power, the will to power, power itself. What is bad? All that is born of weakness. What is happiness? The feeling that power is growing, that resistance is overcome." Nietzsche "I am making superhuman efforts to educate this people. When they have learnt to obey, they will believe what I tell them." Mussolini “No man is a man until he has been a soldier.” Louis de Bernières "Art is not a mirror to hold up to society, but a hammer with which to shape it." Trotsky "True stability results when presumed order and presumed disorder are balanced. A truly stable system expects the unexpected, is prepared to be disrupted, waits to be transformed.” Tom Robbins “A man who has been through bitter experiences and travelled far enjoys even his sufferings after a time” Homer "We live in a society obsessed with public opinion. But leadership has never been about popularity." Marco Rubio "He who has never learned to obey cannot be a good commander." Aristotle “Traditional hedonism...was based on the direct experience of pleasure: wine, women and song; sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll; or whatever the local variant. The problem, from a capitalist perspective, is that there are inherent limits to all this. People become sated, bored...Modern self-illusory hedonism solves this dilemma because here, what one is really consuming are fantasies and day-dreams about what having a certain product would be like.” David Graeber "What we need is an enthusiastic but calm state of mind and intense but orderly work." Chairman Mao "Just do what must be done. This may not be happiness, but it is greatness."

  9.     The Factor is on! Tonight, a Factor Exclusive: The Post-Disorder War Global Stability Report.   Thank you for joining us tonight on the Factor. As you are aware, The Factor has been following developments within Doomsphere closely. As normal, Postwar treaty maneuvering has begun, and so far it appears Polardoxia is engaging a lions share of new treaties. Considering Polardoxia's role in improving the global situation with the Disorder War, this is of course no surprise.   After careful analysis, The Factor is pleased to present our findings on the postwar political environment.   Figure 1-1: Demonstrated is Relative Stability (Vertical), relative to political and/or military clout (horizontal)   As the Diagram explains, Doomsphere is currently the most unstable Primary Power Sphere (PPS). Since the Mushqaeda Operation, The Neutral PPS has re-stabilized and indeed with the stability provided by the Disorder War, has returned to its rightful stable place for civilians to prosper in. Since that incident, Neutral state actors have payed closer attention to global politics, and some are beginning to see the advantages of Polardoxian Order.   The Union of Polardoxia remains the top PPS politically and militarily, and the most stable aside from the neutrals themselves. It's victory following the Disorder was not just a massive defeat against a pragmatic threat, but also a crushing blow ideologically against the specter of Neo-Imperialism. There is good news in Pacifica. Although more reform is needed, I have sensed signs of positive change from within. Pacifica will have a critical role in the year to come, and their actions will determine the shape of the emerging return of Global Peace and Order.   The Disorder War could be considered a Global Correction, which is bringing affairs back towards civilization and order. The fall of the Pacifican Empire left a state of Global Feudalism which has largely dissipated. Thus, a triple victory against Lulzism, Feudalism and Imperialism has been obtained in only 5 months time. Thus, the Coalition has evolved into a Revolution, not of the masses, but simply the hegemonic ideology.   Figure 1-2: Global Diagram reflects comparative ideological PPS   This diagram breaks down the relative comparisons between different ideologies in an easy to understand way. Polardoxia leads an ideologically strong, stability producing New Order which results in prosperity, relative freedom, military dominance, and ideological hegemony worldwide. This Paradoxian-Polar Union unites political North and South to unit against Doomist terrorist attacks.   Doomsphere is the most unstable region. Dominated by ideological lulzism and archaic friends>infra philosophy, it launched a series of terrorist attacks against Polardoxia during the Disorder War. The War was fought by Polardoxia and IRON against the Neo-Imperialists of NPOsphere. Unusual Suspects, the most westerly allies of NPO, was drawn into the sphere, a significant loss to Polardoxia early in the war. Of course, Polardoxia's efficient and modern military was more than a match for inactive western alliances like NATO, and the top heavy authoritarian descendant of Vladimirist-Francoism in the East.   IRONsphere currently lacks a stabilizing ideology, and thus reacted poorly in the Disorder war, earning disapproval for its diplomatic handling of the War. It is more stable than Post-War NPOsphere, but Control over IRONspheres resource and nation access and control will likely be a key focus of the FA strategies of every other power sphere. Meanwhile the Neutrals in the Far East have recovered from the lulzist terrorism of Mushqaeda, with many more neutral alliances rising to the top ranks due to the Stability provided by the Disorder War.   Interestingly, the core ideologies have responded to the presence of LNN reporters and staff in a variety of ways. Some regions have banned LNN press access, while others have adopted varying policies of free speech and access to information. Based on the access of the Lannister News Network to IRC channels and government officials, here is our rankings from Most Free to Least Free:   Global Press Freedom Index   #1 Most Free: Polardoxia LNN has generally noticed the least Press Restrictions from Polardoxia, and the most interviews and content has originated from within this Sphere.   #2: IRONsphere IRONsphere, although lacking a unifying ideology, has not placed restrictions on the Lannister News Network and has generally remained cooperative with press interviews and off the record discussions.   #3: Neutrals Neutrals have not placed restrictions on the Lannister News Network, but also provide relatively little in press content to the LNN.   #4: Doomsphere The sudden criminalization of free speech by DBDC collaborators is of great concern to LNN. DBDC as a political influence has rapidly mushroomed since their actions were left unanswered by all but a handful of alliances in the Mushqaeda War. In the Disorder War, they went as far as to openly engage terrorist attacks and raids against Polardoxian Nations. The Primitivism of Doomthought has spread through AZTEC and some other alliances, slowly invading NPOsphere and IRONshere.   #5: NPOsphere Neo-Imperialism has lead to a reactionary atmosphere that has resulted in mass groupthink and active obstruction of the Press. Most Pacifican alliances have banned independent news stations like LNN and our International press access, and shares very little information of government activity with their people. NPOsphere is currently the only power sphere to block press access based on political or ideological grounds.
  10.   The Factor is on! Tonight, a special public opinion segment on DBDC.   Thank you for joining us tonight, I'm Tywin Lannister. DBDC has been the recent trending topic, with a recent specialized NAP treaty with IRON that protects not just the signatories but also their allies from attack. Now as you know, DBDC was involved in a number of undeclared raids and attacks during the war all across the treaty web. In the announcement, Starcraftmazter of DT/DBDC noted the following:         One senior government official ominously noted under condition of anonymity that "Stability hears the name Cuba and literally !@#$% its pants." But is this really the case, or are propagandists blowing DBDC's impact and agenda out of proportion? I believe this issue is too important to cover alone, so this episode will be a fair and balanced public opinion segment.   We want YOUR opinion on whether DBDC is friend or foe. Please participate in our poll, and PM me any opinions, information and commentary you want to remain anonymous. The Lannister Factor will then compile opinions, data and political dynamics to present our analysis of public opinion in our next episode.        
  11.   Tonight on the Factor: A Primer for The New Leaders on Modern foreign affairs   Thank you for joining us tonight. With the Disorder War seemingly over, many were left wondering why exactly the war was necessary in the first place, and The Factor worked overtime to provide perspective to our viewers. Despite recent rumors, The Factor pledges to continue providing news and information for our audience.   We have extensively covered the developments involving DBDC, however tonight we will take a break from our coverage to provide this primer on the New Way of foreign affairs. The Factor places great importance on the education of our future leaders, and realize that the new nation leaders of today will be the alliance leaders of tomorrow.     The Importance of the Disorder War   Since returning to the world, the overall trend of things have generally oriented towards stability. Before the Disorder War, the international community united to counter the lulzism in Mushqaeda, and after the war questions were raised: Instead of simply reacting to a disaster, how can we take the initiative to defeat these trends before they actualize? What if a world court was formed to handle instability as a 3rd party?   Although nothing came of it, the international community once again had to work together to defeat the rising neo-imperialism in NSO and its Pacifican allies. NSO in particular proved its menace after plotting to attack Polaris, and bullying numerous alliances, including House Baratheon. After realizing the threat, I proposed preemptive action be taken, and eventually various alliance leaders formed a battle plan lead by Polaris. Throughout the war, alliances volunteered like military units, with reserve units capable of rapid deployment and redeployment against emergent threats (such as HB's actions against NoR and R&R).   After the coalition finally found victory, the international community began to endorse Polardoxia as the global leader of stability and prosperity. With the ties forged in fire by the Disorder War, a new revolution was born in the form of TOP-Polar dual leadership. So long as this union holds dominant, peace and the abolishment of uncertainty from war will prevail.   How Important are treaties?   Treaties are not automatically mandatory. It always depends on the circumstances of the situation, and the wording of the treaty. Too many alliance governments don't even read the language of the treaty and make assumptions. For example, the concept of non-chaining treaties were new to me, however, they are a stabilizing treaty element and sure to be popular in the future. Let's say DBDC was targetted as part of a stability oporation, and DT reacted. The nonchaining clause would protect any nonchaining ally of DT from mandatory response clauses.   However, it is not just special clauses that can offer protection from the actions of a bad ally's government. "Mandatory" treaty clauses have no special value above "optional" clauses. Thus, under international law, a mutual defense action is of equal value to an optional aggression action. This is where it comes to options for alliance leaders where two treaty partners are requesting treaty activation.   As MD and oA actions are equivalent, it is the duty of alliance governments to determine which treaty activation is better for the alliance overall. Only after careful analysis should a decision between multiple treaty options be taken. Generally, the right option will be the one that enhances global stability and the prosperity of the alliance.   When it is time for surrender negotiations, it is generally good to weight the terms according to the treaty options the defeated alliance had: those alliances which had the legal option to not fight against stability operations should be treated more punitively, while those who sincerely had no option but to defend their ally should receive the lightest terms. In this way, over a period of wars, wars will become more minimal and controlled in nature, resulting in greater certainty and stability.   Good Foreign Affairs Personnel are educated   Too often alliances, after recruiting new nations, do not provide a warrior leadership course to their nations. Instead, the focus is isolated to nation growth. This number-crunching approach often leaves many alliances without enough membership educated in foreign affairs, and the government drifts between wars unable to control their own fate. Training new nations to be leaders is far more important, and good leadership takes good FA education. This is the key to the future.   As an aside note, University of Foreign Affairs is under construction and will soon offer an FA course for new leaders willing to learn the subtleties and intrigue of politics. My hope is for the university to become the central FA school of this world, with future leaders taking the initiative towards stability and prosperity. We will also offer course instruction to any alliance leaders seeking to implement it within their alliances.

    Death Note

    Not really into anime most of the time, but Death Note is an interesting series available on youtube. Anyone who thinks allowing absolute power to be concentrated in the hands of one man, regardless of how "good" or "just" he is, should check it out. I've gotten to episode 7 and so far the series is about two very intelligent men: One receives a magic book of death, and one who opposes him. The first episode.

    The Rise of a God Emperor

      "Nothing will stop the March of my Empire!" CubaQuerida   Long ago the Mad Emperor Revenge lead the world into a reign of tyranny. He corrupted the Hegemony, turning it into his personal Empire with which he devastated entire alliances on a whim. Embarking on a pattern of terror and driven mad by his lust for power, he attacked dozens of alliances, forcing viceroys, disbandments, and EZI on anyone who stood against him. The IAA chose to make a stand, and I lead the bravest 200 nations I had ever known into the jaws of 10,000 nations, disbandment and EZI. Our stand against tyranny was not fruitless, and Starfox101 went on to create Vox Populi, ending in the Mad Emperor's defeat a year later.   Today a new threat to freedom and stability has risen.     The God Emperor in ThePromisedLand   A new tyrant has risen. He has attacked dozens of alliances amounting to hundreds of raids, throughout both the Mushqaeda and Disorder wars. Beginning by submitting the upper tiers, he has rapidly built an army of slaves vast beyond imagining, ready to devour the newly forged Polardoxia. Sparta was just one of the alliances his empire has attacked, and his ambition and lust for power is limitless.      "I will lead my entire power sphere against Polardoxia!" Stewie seeks revenge for the Disorder War   The God Emperor's army of slaves do not march alone. Stewie has sworn service to the God Emperor, submitting Non Grata's earth and water in return for a chance at revenge. While Polardoxia celebrates her victory against neo-imperialists, her enemies are already plotting to drive her apart. By driving a wedge between TOP and Polaris, they seek to divide and conquer, and destroy the world's last hope of reason and stability.     Polardoxia leads a Global Dawn of Stability and Prosperity   The Oracles say that only the gods can defeat a united Polardoxia. The coming months will reveal those who chose to kneel before a God Emperor, and those who will be willing to die on their feet.     "We must all hang together, or we assuredly we shall all hang separately"

  15.   The Factor is on! Tonight, an LNN Exclusive: DBDC tech shipment report   Thank you for joining us tonight on the Factor. As you know, Doombird Doomcave has been under public scrutiny after months of attacks against dozens of alliances, amounting to hundreds of raids. CubaQuerida has lead a campaign of outright bullying throughout the war, and after a request from one of our viewers, The Factor has decided to publish a list of recent alliances to supply DBDC with technology shipments. Interestingly enough, some of the alliances involved appear unprotected and our investigation even revealed tech shipments from alliances allied to those raided by DBDC.   Note: The Lannister News Network is not responsible for any violence or diplomatic actions taken against those who provide tech shipments to DBDC.     Swash plates and Tail Rotors 1,907,301 NS, 34 Nations Known Treaties: KASKUS, SRA (o), DBDC protected?   Mushroom Kingdom 1,596,627 NS, 29 Nations Protected by TOP   Doom Squad 625,156 NS, 21 Nations ODoAP with the Grand Lodge Of Freemasons, Orange Defense Network, and Non Grata.

  16. I'm going to briefly analyze the relevant portions of CubaQuerida's answers to Lord Hershey's answers. I took a look at our collection of semi-organized, underachieving nations and sat them all down after our most successful set of wars in history. I then said to them, “We’ve stopped being a rogue group no one understands. We've become something unstoppable. We have become a Community.” This paragraph on DBDC's series of raids throughout the Mushqaeda and Disorder war reveals his interesting perspective on the success of his "wars." It also is a revealing glimpse at his lack of knowledge and experience in CN politics, and perhaps reflects the words of the sycophants whispering words into his ear. The God Emperor's hubris and political inexperience may someday cause much heartache amongst the inexperienced upper tier nations he has been recruiting/impressing into his service in alliances like NEW and SPaTR. We are not some fascist dictatorship or a rogue state. We make all of our decisions after close consultation with Troy (Artigo) and Abed (TBRaiders), and Annie (Tayloj) always lets us know if we are acting too much like jerks. For general decisions, everyone has a voice, even Pierce (Christian Trojans). We don’t like IRC, it’s antiquated and unreliable, like Leonard. We use Skype as it is the way of the future, and we’re pioneers like that. No one has ever complained that our attack sequences were too slow. I have used teamspeak while coordinating real-time actions in other games, but that does not mean it is useful in CN (not on the strategic/political level anyway). The use of older, slower forms of communication fit the pace of CN better in my opinion, as actions are mostly only executed once a day. There is no need for voice communication because one's hands do not need to be free to fly/coordinate units or what have you in CN. Your words not mine, Dean. Just because we do it well and make it look sexy while doing it doesn’t mean people aren’t going to try and hate us for being good at what we do. We have some of the smartest minds in the game in our alliance and there’s absolutely nothing we’re doing that everyone else hasn’t either tried to do or wanted to do. We just do it the best. Again, a fundamental misunderstanding of politics in CN. Intelligence and aptitude in one area (nation growth) does not generally translate to competence in politics. Otherwise, CN alliance leaders would all reside in the top tier only (but exactly the type of hierarchical wealth based society some would like DBDC would love to create). I’m not going to get myself all worked up because someone I barely know thinks I’m too powerful and wants to see me and my friends rendered useless or stripped of our ability to fight. Seriously, you can attempt to modify the game all you want, we will find a way to do it better than you and you’ll just feel even worse when you still can’t get the better of us. Oh, the hubris God Emperor. Of course, poor Cuba is being manipulated by the many losers of the last war fellating him for his support. A politically inexperienced man suddenly ushered onto the "throne" by sycophants is not a good recipe for stability. Stability comes from cooperation within a unified political system of equals (like Polardoxia), not a hierarchical society of manipulators and deceivers bowing to one man (like the Empire of Moo was).
  17. This pyramidal structure quickly explains the "God Emperor" CubaQuerida's plans for world domination. Whereas the Revolutionary Order Party seeks a politically based, egalitarian model of world peace, DBDC craves the power of subjugation and hierarchy. DBDC, lead by CubaQuerida, endorses Doomism, a cult-like agenda determined to enslave the lower-tier nations of the world. It recognizes the threat posed by an egalitarian revolution-inspired Polardoxia which defeated Neo-Imperialism in the Disorder War, as well as Neutrals and volunteers who united to defeat Lulzism in Mushqaeda. Throughout both wars, DBDC has raided countless nations, exploiting flaws in the upper tier of the game system. Through these flaws, CubaQuerida is able to deliver massive levels of damage to nations hundreds of thousands of Nation Strength below him. He seeks to exploit the resentment among recently defeated Neo-Imperialists to build a huge army, and is forcing large numbers of innocent upper tier nations into his service, as revealed by UnknownSmurf recently. Once Polardoxia is defeated by his Henchmen, he will be able to bring neutrals under his rule, and nobody will stop him from building his permanently fixed, Hierarchical New World Order. By permanently subjugating the Nations to tier-based classes, his counter-revolution will be complete, and the fun we all enjoy in CN via politics and diplomacy will be gone forever. Note: This was a paid advertisement from the Revolutionary Order Party and does not necessarily reresent the views of the Lannister News Network.
  18.   What is Neo-Imperialist Moralism?   A Factor Investigation   Thank you for joining us tonight. This is the first time in our networks history that two episodes of the Factor have covered the same thread. In fact, two episodes were necessary because of the critical role NPO's surrender plays in world history. Whereas our previous episode covered the events running up to the war's ending, this episode will focus on what follows; specifically, what the false moralism prevalent throughout the thread means for future relations.   Now as our viewers know, this war was revolutionary in nature: it not only struck down nations, but it struck down ideas. It was a much different approach to warfare than the Equilibrium war. A member of Valhalla recently criticized the war for the way it unfolded:       With all due respect, Lord Levistus, this war was completely different in design than Equilibrium. Brehon relied on a reactionary approach with his coalition against Umbrella. It is easy for that sort of war to start well because everyone sees the objective. Fighting Mushqaeda went along similar lines, reacting to and containing a situation which everyone could see happening. The approach in this war was reversed: It began as an idea within a small group of people, and was slowly and carefully spread and implemented.  When the hammer blow came, it was quick and decisive, and a quick look around revealed that resistance was futile. This is the higher form of warfare, but also the one most difficult to implement. This could be considered a revolutionary war from some perspectives, since it essentially toppled the hegemonic culture of white peace. With MK out of the way, along with their dominant ideology, this war became possible.   This brings us to the main point of tonight's show: moralism in the context of neo-imperialism. Not long after the announcement was posted, Pacifican members and apologists hysterically attacked the morality and honor of the Coalition, and Sir Paul even invoked the Bible:     Now the folks know what is really going on here. Pacifican demagogues are trying to rile up the people and are hinting at punitive reparations in coming wars. Of course these pompous myrmidons forget the fact that there were no reparations in the terms, and they simply targeted the upper tier Pacifica attempted to hide in peace mode.   Of course as the Factor revealed weeks ago, NPO is in no position to ride the moral high horse. NPO had pushed for even harsher terms in the equilibrium war! As Crownguard pointed out in the thread, NPO and her foederati palls are using moralism as a cloak for revenge. The Coalition did not apply terms to Pacifica for petty emotional reasons: NPO represented a threat in the short term with their top tier nations untouched with peace mode. NPO had to be removed from the political equation as long as her allies are, or the war would be pointless. Good wars are not about revenge, but rather preserving (or establishing) stability.   Pacifica's Neo-Imperialism, however, remains a potent threat to said stability. After recently traveling to Francograd myself and confronting their modern ideology (and a dragon), it left no doubt in my mind that much work needs to be done to bring Pacifica back into the international community. When the Mad Emperor Moo gutted the Praetorian Guard in 2007-2008, it strayed NPO from her original goals with the Hegemony and towards imperialism. This was reflected by their aggressive wars and EZI policies, which would eventually lead to their downfall.   Thus Neo-Imperialism is simply their ideological desire to return to Moo era imperialism. With all the inherent contradictions within the philosophy it is no surprise that they turn to turbid moralism in an attempt to sway people to their "cause." Until their sickness is cured, however, they will continue to blunder while pursuing raw ambition and revenge, aided by the myriad useful idiots who support them "morally."   This is a wake up call to the world: The war may have ended well, but never lose vigilance in the face of an enemy who refuses to capitulate and continues to saber rattle after defeat. But it also reveals our responsibility to change their policy direction and teach them how to learn from their past mistakes. Pacifica may think her worst enemy are those who imposed the terms, but in reality, it is her own adulation for her imperialist past.

  20. The Lannister Factor is on! Tonight: Emperor Farrin finally sees reason after defiance! But why are NG and NoR still at war? Tonight we will tell you in a no-spin zone talking points memo. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Aloha, I am Tywin Lannister, and thank you for joining us tonight. Emperor Farrin of the New Pacific Order surrendered today as revealed by Yerushalayim of Sparta. The terms he finally yielded to are not far from the ones he originally objected to so vociferously: Of course as our viewers are aware, the Emperor was simply bluffing when he demanded white peace and white peace only. A while back LNN revealed statistics showing NPO had not suffered the same comparable reduction as other core alliances. NSO coalition was fracturing and although Farrin tried his best to break the will of the Coalition and obtain a coalition white peace, his side broke first and surrendered by front after a month. Steve Buscemi was one of dozens who criticized the determined strategy of the Coalition, saying it came out of a book "written by Ramirus, with a foreword by Tywin Lannister." This is because while in high govt, on Dec 20th I approached Steve Buscemi myself to deliver my terms for negotiations to occur: Now while this angered a few people in the coalition, it set the record straight: The Coalition would fight until the war was won beyond the shadow of a doubt. A coalition white peace is not a victory. This brings us to the subject of tonight's talking points memo. Two alliances still remain at war in the NSO coalition: NG and NoR. Intel has reached Talking Points that NoR refuses to surrender to at least "The Order of the Reaper," aka Disciples of Destruction over bad blood in the past. Ironically, it would seem NoR had recently tried to hold NPO hostage the same way Farrin tried to leverage better terms for NPO. Of course, Farrin was too smart to fall for his own trick. The folks know whats going on here. Nordreich is simply being stubborn because they are too good to surrender like all those other alliances. Of course, with the NSO coalition all but a memory, more pressure will be brought to bear on Nordreich and Non Grata until they finally yield. Nordreich still hopes to break the will of the coalition alone, but if NPO cannot achieve it over peace mode terms, NoR cannot possibly do it over a white surrender. Nordreich, it's time to see reason like Farrin, bend the knee and end the war. And thats the memo. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- What is Neo-Imperialist Moralism?

Emperor Farrin of the New Pacific Order surrendered today as revealed by Yerushalayim of Sparta. The terms he finally yielded to are not far from the ones he originally objected to so vociferously:     Of course as our viewers are aware, the Emperor was simply bluffing when he demanded white peace and white peace only. A while back LNN revealed statistics showing NPO had not suffered the same comparable reduction as other core alliances. NSO coalition was fracturing and although Farrin tried his best to break the will of the Coalition and obtain a coalition white peace, his side broke first and surrendered by front after a month.   Steve Buscemi was one of dozens who criticized the determined strategy of the Coalition, saying it came out of a book "written by Ramirus, with a foreword by Tywin Lannister." This is because while in high govt, on Dec 20th I approached Steve Buscemi myself to deliver my terms for negotiations to occur:   [spoiler]19:56    Tywin_Lannister    hey steve 19:56    Tywin_Lannister    let me know when you're available 22:21    Steve_Buscemi[NG]    Yea, I am now for a sec. 22:21    Steve_Buscemi[NG]    What's up? 22:28    Tywin_Lannister    Hey bro 22:28    Steve_Buscemi[NG]    Herro 22:28    Tywin_Lannister    just wanted to see if anyone had been talking to you guys about peace very recently 22:29    Steve_Buscemi[NG]    I'm in communication with Umbrella. 22:29    Steve_Buscemi[NG]    We are all waiting on you guys giving NPO terms. 22:30    Steve_Buscemi[NG]    Which to my knowledge haven't been offered. 22:30    Tywin_Lannister    NPO is a little more complicated 22:31    Tywin_Lannister    I'm sure you understand that we are not seeking a coalition type of peace, but rather peace by front 22:31    Steve_Buscemi[NG]    Yes, I know. 22:32    Tywin_Lannister    In my eyes, the fronts are divided like thus: US, NG/NoR, NPO/NSO 22:32    Steve_Buscemi[NG]    But if you are unwilling to talk even terms with NPO, I doubt you'll find us even willing to consider front peace. 22:32    Steve_Buscemi[NG]    When you have given NPO terms as wel as US terms on their front....then we can proceed. 22:33    Tywin_Lannister    There will be no coalition-wide peace steve 22:33    Steve_Buscemi[NG]    I know. 22:33    Steve_Buscemi[NG]    When you have given NPO's FRONT terms, then we'll proceed from there. 22:33    Steve_Buscemi[NG]    It's quite simple really. 22:33    Steve_Buscemi[NG]    When you finally make a decision on NPO, then we can proceed. 22:34    Steve_Buscemi[NG]    Until then we are content to keep lobbing nukes at you. 22:34    Steve_Buscemi[NG]    Now it's up to HB if they want to white peace NoR. 22:35    Steve_Buscemi[NG]    Meaning, HB peace out NoR and you go your separate ways while NoR continues to defend NG and those attacking it. 22:35    Steve_Buscemi[NG]    But as to NG peacing out, we won't be until those at war with NPO at least give it peace terms. 22:35    Steve_Buscemi[NG]    And I don't know what your hold up is on giving their front peace. 22:36    Steve_Buscemi[NG]    I can only guess it's that no one in your coalition wants to be the leader and you have disenting viewpoints, so maybe that's something you should fix before you approach us. 22:36    Tywin_Lannister    If you think our coalition is leader-less, you are mistaken 22:37    Tywin_Lannister    However, we are acutely aware of NPO's machinations in this case alongside NSO 22:38    Tywin_Lannister    NPO will be presented terms last because they post such an acute threat to global stability 22:39    Tywin_Lannister    NG/NoR has the chance right now to achieve a white surrender that leaves you capable of regrowth and participation in world politics as a relevant party 22:39    Tywin_Lannister    Indeed, my King's heart has grown warm towards NoR 22:42    Tywin_Lannister    I want to clear NG/NoR front so we can more decisively approach other coalition matters, however, if NG decides to stand against coalition priorities to stand with NPO, that can be taken into account as well. 22:45    Tywin_Lannister    Speaking for myself, my patience is long. I was once EZI'd by the party you seem to determined to stand alongside 22:46    Tywin_Lannister    In the end, my coalition has the muscle and numbers to win, however long the war takes, and you know it, the only thing to determine is who will be welcomed to the table, and who will be shunned. 22:48    Tywin_Lannister    I do not share logs, but you may do so if you chose. My intent is to see this war won by any means necessary. I sincerely hope you do the right thing for your alliance and your allies. Thank you for your time.[/spoiler]   Now while this angered a few people in the coalition, it set the record straight: The Coalition would fight until the war was won beyond the shadow of a doubt. A coalition white peace is not a victory.   This brings us to the subject of tonight's talking points memo. Two alliances still remain at war in the NSO coalition: NG and NoR. Intel has reached Talking Points that NoR refuses to surrender to at least "The Order of the Reaper," aka Disciples of Destruction over bad blood in the past. Ironically, it would seem NoR had recently tried to hold NPO hostage the same way Farrin tried to leverage better terms for NPO. Of course, Farrin was too smart to fall for his own trick.   The folks know whats going on here. Nordreich is simply being stubborn because they are [i]too good[/i] to surrender like all those other alliances. Of course, with the NSO coalition all but a memory, more pressure will be brought to bear on Nordreich and Non Grata until they finally yield. Nordreich still hopes to break the will of the coalition alone, but if NPO cannot achieve it over peace mode terms, NoR cannot possibly do it over a white surrender. Nordreich, it's time to see reason like Farrin, bend the knee and end the war.   And thats the memo.

The Party transcends alliance politics and is a revolutionary vanguard seeking global order and stability in the interests of the overwhelming majority of the Nations.   Nation Leaders may apply for public or anonymous membership in the Party Congress. Our Little Red Book is based upon Vladimirist-Francoism, Historical Materialism, Tywinism, the early ideals of Vox Populi and important works of OOC politics and the Scientific Outlook on Development.   Using every revolutionary tool at our disposal, we march forward in the context of historical materialism towards global stability. We will endorse alliance candidates, collaborate with Team Senators, and act against counter revolutionary interests. Membership is open to Nations of all alliance affiliations.   Join us on our Forums here.   The First Constitution of the Revolutionary Order Party:      
  24. In the last Global Analysis segment, we broke down the primary political philosophies of this world, but encountered some confusion from our viewers. Why are some democracies like TOP so efficient, and others stagnant and lacking in dynamic? Why are some autocratic regimes also democratic, while others are simple dictatorships?   After recently speaking with both a friend in TOP, and a friend in NPO, I will provide you with the answer why, by illustrating the accountability of these governments and sharing my own experience with NSO. I will also explain why terms like "efficient democracy" and "democratic autocracy" are not always self-contradictory terms, and why Order always prevails.   The Order of the Paradox: Democratic Accountability   None can doubt the capability and efficiency of the Order of the Paradox. For a long time, this ability confused even myself: How can a democracy expect to succeed when by definition it does not completely remove itself from the state of nature? In reality, however, the democracy of TOP was not designed to check the power of the sovereign, but rather, to hold it accountable.   A careful analysis of Paradox reveals its democratic experiment was not shaped around an irrational fear of centralized power, as so many democracies are. Indeed, within Paradoxia King Feanor has reigned for many years. Paradoxia's Order implemented a democratic institution to maintain accountability of the leadership. After all, the absolute duty of any alliance sovereign is to defend and advance the interests of the Nations.   With a strict selection process and an institution designed to advance the power and glory of the Order, Paradoxia has become a beacon and example of true democracy for all democratically oriented alliances to aspire to. Instead of resisting Order, Paradoxia has embraced it, and adopted democratic accountability to ever march gloriously into the future.   The New Pacific Order: Autocratic Democracy   At it's peak, the New Pacific Order established the Hegemony, a monumental achievement which brought Pacifican philosophy to the global scale and established global stability that lasted years. Through Francoism, power and glory was expressed scientifically via written word. But in it's early days, Pacifica was no mere dictatorship that served the whims of the leader. Comrade Vladimir reformed the Praetorian Guard to preserve the ideological purity of the Order. [ooc]The name of the Guard was no accident: the Roman Praetorians were known to assassinate their emperors from time to time.[/ooc]   The mission of the Praetorian Guard is to protect the New Pacific Order and the Pacifican way of life from those who would choose to harm the alliance, either intentionally or unintentionally. In the glory days, the Praetorian Guard served as a handpicked ideological inner party of the Order, maintaining a powerful grip over both the membership and the higher offices. Should an Emperor turn from Francoism and the Order, it was the responsibility of the Praetorian Guard to organize his overthrow.   Unfortunately, the Mad Emperor Revenge, also called Moo-Cows, weakened the Praetorian Guard. When a leader of the Praetorian Guard, Al Kassad, made his stand against the Mad Emperor, he was thrown from the alliance and accused of spying for Vox Populi. Ivan Moldavi also made his stand, attempting to sieze power during the Moldavi Rebellion, but was defeated. Those who remained did so out of loyalty to the Order, but with the Mad Emperor's power left unchecked, he plunged the Order into destruction and the Hegemony finally fell.   Emperor Cortath did his best to salvage the situation, but those who followed him never understood the importance of accountability and the Praetorian Guard, and to this day the Order has never fully recovered.   The New Sith Order: Rule of the Strongest   In 2009 Ivan Moldavi returned to establish the New Sith Order, and as Count da Silva, I was the fifth nation to join. With the failure of Pacifica, Ivan sought to establish a new Order that embodied many the ideals of the old Body Republic, with a healthy system of accountability. He established a system that allowed Sith to rise to power in meritocracy, and to allow democratic challenges that could remove a weak leader from power.   Since I was the strongest ideological voice of the Sith, and with my experience in the Imperial Assault Alliance, Ivan appointed me to replicate the Praetorian Guard within the NSO. To this end, I founded the Bureau of Internal Security, a secular body with the same mission as Pacifica's Guard: to hold both the leadership and the membership accountable to the interests of the Order. This was done in the same manner: a handpicked, ideologically pure inner-party with a powerful network of Sith that acted as a secret police force. [ooc]Unfortunately, due to real life circumstances I went inactive (as did Ivan), and never returned.[/ooc]   Recently, Rayvon revealed that he himself had dismantled the Security Bureau and had thrown Ivan Moldavi from the alliance years ago, resulting in a loss of accountability and absolute power held in his hands. With the Bureau gone, Rayvon proceeded on a path that has led to the NSO's situation today.
