Progress on Lewis’ Compromise

  • The Poll for Lewis’ Compromise Proposal reads 3 “Yes”, 4 “Yes with changes”, and 0 “No”.
  • You can read it here.
  • M.M. showed disagreement with the notion that the Presidium’s ability to issue Executive Orders without public consent. The Presidium’s position as the Upper Chamber is considered as against the separation of powers.
  • Lewis “thought the original plan was for the Presidium to serve as a sort of upper chamber of the legislature.” Some do not interpret the Proposal in a way that the Presidium is the Upper Chamber of the Legislature.
  • Tarrin Kael opposed the idea of a bicameral legislature and favors the current unicameral Direct Democracy system.
  • Egalica raised the concern that a powerful Secretary-General may defeat the purpose of the Presidium. The possible issue that individuals being chosen to head departments they have no experience with is also brought to the discussion.

TCB's Troops Dedicated to Freedom on the Bloody Front and How You Can Help!

While all of us were trying to wrap our heads around the outstanding progress of the Constitutional Convention this past week, our armed services, fighting the deprived and cynical forces that oppose our every value, our every position, and our every ideology, were defeated. The People’s Revolutionary Army, bearing the torch of democracy, subverted, subjugated, and shattered this terrifying enemy on every point of the inflexible, inhumane axis that has risen from the burned ashes of so many fascist standards that have shared their grisly fate before. The fight to preserve the inalienable rights of the disenfranchised peoples of the world is clearly working in our favor. The anti-fascist forces of ANTIFA, an organization whom we, amongst other member regions, have accredited with the mission of liberating the oppressed and the downtrodden, prevailed over the region of Augusto Pinochet, ejecting its corrupt leaders and seizing the region for the time being in order to safeguard the general welfare of the people. This region, named after the Chilean dictator and general Augusto Pinochet, who after seizing power in 1973 in a CIA-backed coup, ordered the executions, internment, and methodical interrogations of hundreds of thousands of leftists, socialist, dissidents, and intellectuals, represents the evil that still tarnishes the name of NationStates. Through many battles, through many assaults, through many times of darkness, we have stood to show the world the true might of the Communist Bloc, even when it seemed like the might of evil had us surrounded. The axis that we fight, the alliance which shares only the common, scurrilous goal of killing — and killing for power — is facing the scary prospects of now answering to our comrades — to the will of a people so indomitably dedicated to the values and principles which fascism so carelessly tramples over without a glance. Let us all pledge to never forget the crimes and the inhumanities that the fascists have committed and continue to commit upon the people they ostensibly represent. Let us not forget the offences against our brethren, comrades, and kinsmen; the offences against the poor, the sick, and the oppressed; the offences that they perpetuate with each waning moment that they clutch to power. The fascist are in their death throes, and yet, they brazenly continue stand, show their disgraced faces, and fight as a testament to their visceral ferocity. Make no mistake, the alliance that stands on the precipice of ruin still gropes for the top of the summit of glory. And the mercurial force of war knows not right or wrong, but only victory and defeat. So, while we extol our troops, whose noble deeds have yet to expiate for the vast extent of the fascist crimes committed upon people just like ourselves, we must continue to lend all our aid, thoughts, and might to assisting those who can not even muster the courage to say ‘enough is enough’!

General Secretary Nathaniel Penrose Applauds the Great Efforts at Compromise and Unity in the Ongoing Convention

  1. When asked about the current status of the deliberations in the Constitutional Convention, the General Secretary was extremely pleased with the results, principally the efficacy with which the Convention was able to carry out its duties. Here's what he had to say:

"For the most part, I am very happy with the current progress of the convention. Right now we are poised to wrap up both the legislative and the executive, which is quite exciting. My only regret is that we didn't go to comrade Lewis Flood sooner during the argument about the executive branch's composition. We could have gotten things done alot sooner."

  1. Though initially 'reluctant' about the idea of having a Constitutional Convention, our General Secretary is quite happy that we opted to take this route instead of electing delegates to represent us. He believes that in light of the recent implementations of direct democracy in TCB (i.e. the democratization of the Central Committee), it would have been 'inappropriate' to entrust such a key process in the hands of so few.
  2. When asked about any inspiration for the Preamble and near-finished Article I of the inchoate Constitution, including the effects of the Constitutional Convention that formed the United States government that we know today, the General Secretary believed that numerous members drew inspiration from such venerated politicians like Alexander Hamilton, even drawing a parallel between the great father of the American Constitution, James Madison, and the negotiator, comrade, and father of the compromise in the executive dispute, Lewis Flood.
  3. Our General Secretary believes that further deliberations and decisions should be wrapped up soon as we draw closer and closer to a new and more glorious future, so stay tuned. If anyone wishes to pitch new ideas for the nascent Constitution or stay informed, please visit it right here on the TCB forums by scrolling to the Convention category near the top of the page, or clicking here.

Thank you for tuning into the Daily News, the trusted new platform for the great region of the Communist Bloc. We at the Daily News are so appreciative of your sponsorship of this news platform, your comments, your support, and your contributions to the government of this region. We would like to give a special and sincere thanks to General Secretary Nathaniel Penrose for sitting down with us to conduct this generous and useful interview.

Good evening. Here are today's headlines.

Constitutional Deliberations Continue Along With More Information to Help You Make Sense of Recent News

Not much news today on the political front as the highly-praised compromise of Lewis Flood liquidates the recent tension amid a deep ideological impasse. The question that caused this rift is rooted in an executive crisis that questioned the rising power of the vanguard. In other words, all the democratic progress of the TCB was threatened, in one small step, by the rising political Brahmins who, in attempting to imitate the doomed Soviet model of the Presidium, began their exertions to create a council of ministers and magnates who could serve their own interests instead of the people's. With constant bickering and dispute ahead, our gracious and noble comrades turned instead to compromise to solve these issues which had hitherto divided the convention. Here is what they look like:

  • The People's Assembly, the lower chamber of the legislature, to whom the compromise vested the power of drafting legislation, would replace the popular Central Committee which was the progeny of the people's hard work towards direct democracy! Now, under Lewis' brilliant proposal, this body, open to all citizens, can elect a Presiding Speaker, who can represent the Assembly in the Presidium, conduct votes, and help chair the huge chamber. The Assembly will also be tasked with electing the members of the Presidium, who will have ministerial powers and the power to collectively pass directives to help the government carry out its duty to the people. Although the ministers who populate this replacement of the previous cabinet are elected, the question remains whether the People's Assembly will have the ability to recall their ministers in a quick fashion if displeased or dissatisfied with their work.
  • The Presidium, whose appeal lies in the political acumen of the experienced members who serve on the body, would act like a revising body used for conference and advise, which could veto the People's Assembly's resolutions when deemed necessary. The members would, in theory, be able to mobilize their specialized experience in government and their many contacts in the bureaucracy to assess, revise, and improve legislation. The system, however, does still present its problems to the hardliners on the direct-democracy side, who wish to see the supremacy of the Assembly over the elected body. This struggle will probably continue to play out and will only be settled as we continue to move forward in a civil manner.
  • Under the most recent proposal, the Presidium, acting as a collective executive, would be chaired by the Secretary-General, a position already criticized for its 'bourgeois' name (i.e. its relation to the United Nations), who would act mostly as a figurehead and, at best, a morale-booster for TCB.

    While Lewis' compromise has made its many strides, you, comrades and citizens, must voice your opinion amongst yourselves and the convention if you wish to be heard. Do not refrain from introducing ideas to the convention, making suggestions, or asking anyone in the government for help making sense of the complicated legalese, sharp debates, and capricious factions. Thanks for tuning in to Daily News and have a wonderful day!

Good evening. Here are today's headlines.

The Dangerous Right, Axis of Evil, Fumes as it Attempts to Inveigle the WA into Silencing Antifascist Action

The gallantry of antifascist forces, spread far and wide and duly united by the common banner of freedom, is under attack. We, the Communists Bloc, as a nation that voluntarily chose to sacrifice our brilliant young minds, expert politicians, and many resources in fighting this axis, surely understands the grief and suffering that it has caused. At least 6 million Jews, Roma, homosexuals, and disabled persons were heartlessly proffered by the Nazi regime to the ignominious fires of charred bodies and bereaved ashes. In the world that this proposal champions, ethnicity comes before character. Before in this article, I talked of sacrifice. I discussed how we risked everything for the welfare of those that have nothing. In Greek, Holocaustos means ‘burnt offering’. A sacrifice to the pantheon of greed and avarice that lorded over classical customs. Now, we face regions that wish to simply wash away the works of soldiers, intellectuals, and novelists to help the masses regain their rightful place among the stars. We see those who wish to imitate the mistakes and atrocities of so many, emerge now and claim that they are the advocate, the ‘just’ hierophant is the people who they are right this moment conspiring to massacre! This must be stopped!

First, let me be very clear. We do not war. We, as honorable socialists, posit that the defeat of capitalism can only come from resisting the imperial aggression of those who only see the grubby faces of children, the blistered hands of workers, and the dried tears of so many impoverished families as dollars, and more importantly, as items for their aggrandizement. Karl Marx would call this phenomenon ‘alienation’. That we, a race tied to our intelligence and frugality, are now estranged from the very products and fruits of our labor. We have been separated from the very ensign of our humanity, the product of our intelligence, the work of a life’s enterprise. And all because of the capitalists of yore. Was it not Sylvia Plath who once wrote that ‘Dying is an art’? Was it not the Abbe Sieyes who, in exhorting the people to revolt, said that all we want, the nobodies of society, is ‘to be something’? Did not Eisenhower tell us in his Chance for Peace speech that every missile, every fighter plane, every bomber, and every bomb takes from the roads that now lie unpaves, the schools that now lie unbuilt, the people who now lie unclothed and homeless, and the stores that now lie barren of food? We were warned of the exploitation of the hoi polloi by so many before. We have parlously hung from the iron cross of humanity, corned and powerless, in doing so. Yet we still scream and shout and fight for what we believe is right. We were warned of the evils of war, oppression, and injustice. Yet, fascism wishes to do exactly all those things which I have just mentioned, which everyone with a heart must necessarily abhor. Fascism wages its wars against all citizens of the world. It kills its people, it makes labor a tool of the powerful, it adds new definition to the word poor, and it oppresses. So, we are all naturally outraged when the nation of Koholint-Island submitted a proposal that condemned Antifa, the primary organization working to stop these atrocities. The moderators of Ransium and Wrapper approved it as legal. They let the succinct, inadequate, and frankly cowardly and pusillanimous text of that proposal pass as ‘legal’. With only four vague provisions that make baseless, indolent claims against the champions of justice, this document discards reason for pure dogma, even going so far as attacking the left. This condemnation, which after 5 hours has already garnered 12 endorsements, looks like it is on track to enslaving the powerless on NS. If you would like to read all the provisions,here is the proposal. Trust me, this light read can’t tell a lie apart from a truth. I ask you to join the international platform condemning this flagrant attempt at endorsing fascism. Do not let the petty whims of corporate bosses and fascists dictators emasculate the powerful outreach and community that we have helped create. Together we are powerful! Together we can fight. Together we can uphold justice, truth, and equality, even if we must be martyred. Workers of the World, People of TCB, unite!

Good evening. Here are today's headlines.

The Day that Peace Scorned Freedom: The Story of the World Assembly’s Ruinous Fall to Fascism

The axis of evil, a scion of hate and greed, knows no end, knows not the value of human lives, and knows not the toll of human tears. It deprives families of loved ones, suckling children of nutritious food, and employees of their jobs. It leaves a generation of students without teachers, thousands of forgotten, dusty towns without paved roads, and most of all, it deprives people of their voice. It is not enough to just defile our sacred land, pillage our culture of all that displeases, strip us of our only clothes, and leave us in the dust of their gendarmes. No, they must make the human race a tool of their elite. While their fascist ranks march, whip in hand, a rapacious gleam sparkling in their eyes, we suffer the price of such misplaced, miscalculated ambition.

The ubermensch has now become the animal.

The great mission that they champion as progress has only become another mark of detriment. This is the empire that threatens to topple democracy. This is the axis that heralds the end of the beginning of global equality. This is the tale of fascism, one of the many parables that humanity must learn from.

Was it all for vain when Britain, surrounded and starving, fended off the prowling wolves of the Nazi fleet that hid under the crests of the rolling sea?
A sea now in jeopardy of becoming an atrocious abattoir.
Was it all for vain when the United States sent their noblest squadron of ferocious fighters into the swirling epicenter of enemy territory, perched high above Hitler’s realm of terror, just to drop the thousands of pamphlets that lay waiting in their cargo.
On those pieces of paper lay the sincere message of the martyred Munich students who suffered all because they loved their people.
Was it all for vain when the Soviet Union sacrificed the livelihoods of tens of millions of their free patriots, just for the greater good of the shackled peoples of Europe. A people who travailed under the unforgiving yoke of so many tyrannical leaders, so many fuhrers, so many il duces?
Was it all for vain when the horrified troops gazed, horrified, at the emaciated bodies that lay strewn under the ruins of so much misplaced ambition, so much unchanneled cruelty, under the last vestiges of a reich that the right falsely promised would last ‘for a thousand years’? They left for us only desolation, sin, and burnt image of bacchanalian revelry and lust for blood. They left something called the holocaust, burnt offering, sacrifice of the innocent for the whole world to learn from, to expiate for. I say to these tyrants, these juntas, to these emperors and self-made kings what is on everybody’s mind and in everyone’s still weeping heart. Sic semper tyrannis. Down with your iron fist!
Thus, when I look at the disgusting condemnation of Antifa, an organization which has held high the banner of freedom many times, I must abhor whoever vaingloriously decided one day to crawl out of their oubliette to hastily write up its provisions. The baseless allegations leveled against Antifa, burgeoned by the indolence of the puppet delegates who betray the very common cause of the WA, is a petty act of retribution against the hierophants of international justice — the left. The left is not the only faction which harbors this ideology. It just has had the most success in turning its worries into results. The argument that this is a Marxist conspiracy, a play for global domination by the powerful and robust left, is another token of the fear mongering that has defined the right for so long. And we must continuously work against that dogma and that propaganda so the right does not prevail.

The word ‘fascist’ and the word ‘free’ are incompatible and incoherent. They can not stand by each other. Either fascism or freedom must be permanently annihilated for stability, peace, and prosperity. And let me tell you, once people have felt the resounding sensation of freedom, they never abandon it! And that is our battle cry!

The Fierce Battle Over the Judiciary Continues after the Convention Passes the Executive and Legislative Proposals

  • Our glorious comrades, fighting for proletarian peace and prosperity, secured a victory in their compromise which solidified direct democracy in the state and helped incentivize government positions and civil service jobs.
  • The debate over the Judiciary, Article IV of the new Constitution, focuses on term limits and the number of justices. The faction opposing short term limits in fear that too many elections might politicize the judiciary draw on the great fear that the Judiciary might become the instrument of the powerful against the weak. However, those who champion those short term limits argue that keeping the justices in check helps boost activity and tighten ethics around the government, all well helping secure the majority and popular will against the growing elite.

Ministry of Foreign Affairs Updates on The Revolutionary Communist Alliance

Hello comrades at home and abroad,
Recently we have been made aware that The Revolutionary Communist Alliance has taken pro-left measures and legislated the ban of fascists on sight in their region. We are very happy with this development, but due to the extreme reluctance on part of many of their officials, and of some of their citizens, we have decided to wait for a time to see how this legislation is enforced. As such, diplomatic approachment will not take place at this time but is still a possibility for the future.
Thank you all!
Solidarity Forever, Comrades!
You can read the original text here.

Embassy Application for Unat (Region) Declined

  • The nation Unat requested for embassy for the region Unat.
  • The region (Unat)[https://www.nationstates.net/region=unat] is founded by Unat, but the nation Unat is currently located at The Revolutionary Communist Alliance.
  • The official reason for the decline is that Unat has connection with the region Olgea. Ministry of Foreign Affairs is skeptical about the integrity of leftism in the region Olgea.

Good evening. Here are today's headlines.

[VOTE NOW] [CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION] THE JUDICIARY

[Poll] VOTE for the Foundation of the TCB Legal System

  • Per the Minister of Justice, Precoixious/Marxmeans:

we need to decide on civil vs common law as the foundation of our entire legal system

Common law, aka case law is law based on precedent from previous judicial rulings. When ambiguities come up, judges have responsibility and duty to resolve them.

Civil law, or Statutory law, on the other hand is as the name would suggest; all laws and rulings (including sentencing) are to be derived from legislation (either from the People's Assembly or executive), relying on explicit and clear outlines of the law.
Common law allows for more flexibility, because it's impossible to cover every circumstance in legislation and things like context, intent, etc. can greatly affect decisions.
This comes at the cost of giving a fair bit of power to justices; justices ruling on cases with no relevant previous cases then have the power to set precedent for the entire future by their interpretation and actions. This makes the first round of judges that actually rule on something very influential.
On the contrary, Civil law allows the legislature (in our case, the people) to decide punishments and whatever. It stops any single person from being too powerful.
civil law also requires lots of legislation, with explicit details and fails to account for some crucial factors.
[In a system of civil law, the] judges just read the law and pass down a punishment. They decide whether the law applies given the facts of the case, and if so, proceed with what is written in that law as consequence.
[if the law doesn’t, then] they're free.
Common law has this emphasis on precedent because of stare decisis, the idea that it's unfair to judge cases with similar facts differently
So everything is consistent in that regard.
Civil law is consistent to the legislation it talks about
Which again, means that if the legislation doesn't actually say anything, the defendant goes scott-free
Under the assumption that we only have 1 court, under Common law there'd essentially be no overrulings
Any new precedent would have to be set by updated legislation
And once again the first case ruling on that legislation would set the precedent for the future

here's a helpful little map of what's used where
So in summary
Common law:
-Precedent based, because consistency is fair
-Flexible, allows factors perhaps not outlined in legislation to be accounted for
-Gives a lot of power to judges ruling on new cases

Civil law:
-Based on legislation
-Gives the people power as we're a DD
-Requires very detailed and explicit legislation, which still would not be able to account for everything
-Let's people go when no consequences are outlined in legislation
I'd also like to point out that if we were to go with common law, we should most definitely have a jury (though wouldn't be a bad idea under civil law either)
Without a jury, justices under common law would literally be judge (interpreting the law), jury (deciding innocence/guilt), and executioner (sentencing)

  • The poll is set up with the instruction of the Convention Chair.
