  1. I apologize if I'm wrong....but there would be no need for protests if gay couples could marry, right?

    Perhaps, but then you might have polygamists demanding recognition, and then maybe people will want to marry their pets... or anything? Dictators are quite afraid of letting the slippery slope of civil rights fall out of their hands plus they like to keep the system the way it is.


  2. Welcome Felasia!

    As a Senator of Yggdrasil, I'm sure we'll be ecstatic to work along with such a region. It's a great honor for both our regions and I hope we can work well together through days to come.


  3. I thought that the florin was intended to be our regional currency. Either way, it sounds like a useful device.

    The Florin is actually the currency on the forums which has no current function yet but may become used for something later. Although the name, Florin, could be a possible name for the regional currency.


  4. With the regional map of Yggdrasil being occupied there is no way to avoid mass trade deals with other countries, with that being said, I propose a regional currency to be debated upon for use in trades between countries and so all Yggdrasil countries can have a more simplified economy. What we may use as the regional currency is yet to be decided and could be debated upon in another topic, I just wanted to see what other people felt on this issue.


  5. What, one human? I'm all for trusting humanity, but to give the rule of a country into the hands of one person. We've seen many examples of that before and where does it take us? Dictatorship, as much as there is people willing to say they could lead a country in a benevolent style(I think the same thing for myself), the power seems to be to overwhelming and can easily corrupt someone. How do you suppose it's an evolution when humans view themselves as less important? That's ridiculous, if anything humanity should be the highest importance and anything should be done to maintain human life.

    And usually in democracy, the ones running for political positions are educated and the one's that run who are not educated don't usually win. But education alone does not also guarantee that one is good at politics. I believe even people such as drug dealers and convicts and the "freeloaders" have a right to vote, you might not be able to understand why they're in such a position and perhaps their ability to vote can help themselves or others like them get out of that position. It's not always their fault.


  6. Voting is making decisions towards the future of all the citizens so should we limit the voting to only the educated or involved? That seems to steer towards a slippery slope of elitist democracy.

    I agree on the statement of equality being relative. Some people seek civil equality and view it as the only true equality, while others argue you that true equality is everyone equally entitled to everything. It's difficult to say whether true equality can be achieved or whether a certain amount of equality is a healthy balance.


  7. I agree, if a society wants to be truly equal then everyone needs to be on the same scale of importance. If you have people with varying levels of importance than you'll begin to have separation between the less important and the more important resulting in inequality.


  8. Yggdrasil doesn't necessarily have many problematic nations and I do believe there is a Ministry of Defense in case there ever was such a need for it. Although it would be a good idea to have some sort of emergency security council if there ever was a need for regional defense.
