So, do you hate the Romans?


Recommended Posts

We are the People's Front of Judea, a Monty Python-themed leftist alliance. Right now you're all just gonna get our typical recruitment message. When I have the time and/or the help I'll make it more Python-esque. :)

Serious presentation of ourselves:

[QUOTE="Charter of the PFJ"]

In March 2011 we, the 'People's Front of Judea', have come together under a common purpose : to unite the Left. However, we have soon realised that we couldn't unite everyone. Seriously, the 'Judean People's Front', the 'Judean Popular People's Front', the 'Campaign for a Free Galilee,' and the 'Popular Front of Judea' are nothing but useless splitters, reformists and extremists which certainly deserve to burn with the rest of them Romans! Thus our first congress ended declaring our common purpose to be nothing less than to hate the 'Judean People's Front', to despise the 'Judean Popular People's Front', to condemn the 'Campaign for a Free Galilee,' and to undermine the 'Popular Front of Judea'. Then we also wrote a charter :

[b]Preamble.[/b]

The PFJ is a revolutionary leftist alliance where the power is in the hands of the working class. In all alliances on Digiterra, there are 3 classes.. There are members who do not wish to take on any alliance responsibilities, there are members entrusted with empowering tasks such as legislation and foreign policy, then there are members doing the leg work, such as trade circles building or recruitment. This last class is what we call the workers'class and to which we give the power in our alliance. We also make everyone a worker, thus abolishing classes all over. This way we aim at maximizing our effectiveness (giving an emphasis in activity, education, contribution to the community) all by getting rid of the usual conflicts between the different classes, which can be witnessed in most alliances.

In order to achieve this, we follow fundamental self management principles as defined in the contemporary ParEcon paradigm. The guiding principles of ParEcon are equality, solidarity and self-management.

[i]Equality[/i] for us does not mean everyone sharing the profits regardless the effort. In PFJ, if you want to profit from the collective effort, you have to put an effort yourself too. If you want to take on empowering, fun tasks like legislation and foreign policy, you also have to do some kind of leg work. Inversely, your day to day work will never be compromised by egotical individuals wishing to play global politics with the ns you created and of which they do not understand or overestimate the value. We all decide equally, but only after having contributed equally.

[i]Solidarity[/i] is tied for us to the first principle. Solidarity means that everybody stands together. However, when people start feeling exploited, resentment begins to build, as we see in many alliances, and people start to fight for power or simply split so that they get a chance to take on empowering tasks themselves too. By abolishing the exploitation of the workers, by making everyone having to do some leg work and not only empowering tasks, we hope to create an objective basis for solidarity within the alliance.

[i]Self-management[/i] is the third principle. By now, it has already become pretty clear what we mean by it. It implies a certain level of freedom, but more importantly a sense of responsibility for the good of the alliance. Again, a problem in most alliances is that people crave the freedom but in many cases are unwilling or unable to accept the responsibility that comes with it. To us it is clear that since we want to have no masters we have to run the alliance our selves. Run it, not just decide about it. Which means that we all take part in more menial tasks too before we get access to the most important info and the right to make decisions.

Although the most interesting part is perhaps our political system, which is very innovative and a good read even if you are not interested to join. Take a moment to read the preamble of the charter :)[/center]

Ok, so you are a leftist and you have principles and it just pisses you off to be bossed around and exploited by some 16 years old Emperor in the game. But on the other hand, you are also bored of having to deal with all the lefties' need to play the game exactly like Marx and Malatesta would. I mean ok, some people need to reaffirm their political identity in a browser game, but that doesn't mean that the rest of us need to deal with that, right?

Why not try an alliance that is both leftist and lulzy and where you won't have to deal with either. Equality, freedom, value and respect for your work, all in a lulzy pack with no analysis on imperialism, Marx, Lenin, Malatesta, Ben Hur, Ivan the Terrible, or Mrs Miggins!

While I'm anything but a leftist I definitely can get behind this sentiment for anyone, be you right or left or even center. So if you are of a left bent, I'd definitely give them a try because they are thinking "right" o.O

;)

Hi, Trikoupis good to see you guys out there and if there is anything this "RIGHT" minded player can do to help howler.
