[Editorial] The Serbian Crisis.

Day 1,892, 10:05 by tarasino





1. The State is always, whatever be its form — primitive, ancient, medieval, modern - an invitation issued by one group of men to other human groups to carry out some enterprise in common.


The Japanese State has lost its purpose! Because they can not give to the State a reason to exist, the political elite of the country has decided that it should not exist anymore. And the common people agree. In the last months every piece of the Japanese State has been relentlessly dismantled, one by one. First it was the Constitution, then the project for a National Army was destroyed. As of now, the government plans to do away with the forum and Immigration.
The truth is we have no common goal to offer to the people coming into this country. No State to make a greater and better future plausible. So we offer them to "blend in", to hide in the dark, in the caverns, like us. But because we have chosen party and MU segregation and isolation as our way of life, it does not give us the right to reccomend it or, even worse, impose it on others. The "Serbian crisis" is in reality a Japanese crisis. And it affects Serbian (new Japanese if they like) and eJapanese alike.






2. That enterprise, be its intermediate processes what they may, consists in the long run in the organisation of a certain type of common life.


Many may say that none of this: forum, army or constitution is indispensable to play. I agree. A forum, a national army or a constitution is not a reason in itself. Not even unity is. But every group of people need to build something together in order to be able to trust each other. And until now no one is offering something. We have not build something as a country for a while now and we do not trust each other, no matter how much we want it. The solution is not how to keep another group of people apart but to find a common enterprise. If i may suggest one: a Japanese State. Not like this one, the government is trying to build, based on "party mentality", walls and mutual distrust. But a new one, one that makes a future possible.






3. [As Renan says] "To have common glories in the past, a common will in the present; to have done great things together; to wish to do greater; these are the essential conditions which make up a people".


In my humble opinion it is wrong to pretend "natural rights" over a country and its people just because of the your past achievements, without offering a future vision for that country and making practical efforts to attain that vision.
It is also wrong to claim a bigger role in the future of the country, no matter how big your present activity is, without showing any respect of the past of the country.
No matter how much one side stresses out it's "culture" or the other shows off it's "damage", without a common ground, the only way to decide the rights over the eJapan would be through brutal force. But then, the winning side will notice that the trophy is smaller than it hoped.






4. In the past, an inheritance of glories and regrets; in the future, one and the same programme to carry out.… The existence of a nation is a daily plebiscite.


Civilized people need other people around. That's why whenever a society descends into barbarity, people scatter. My fear is that eJapan is becoming a barbaric nation. The people and its leaders have dismantled the state and are scattering into their parties and MU to find peace. Everyone has the right to choose its own way of living even if it is barbarity. But i can not stand those people (special greetings to our President here) who preach Barbarism as a higher form of living.

By political elite you mean the active players who care enough to show up on IRC and Forums and vote issues that matter?

Myung Kei
Myung Kei Day 1,892, 14:54

You use a rather broad roller to paint this picture when you should be using a fine brush.

>Constitution
I was alive when the constitution was first debated and ratified 4 years ago. Over time everyone lost the will to enforce it, whether that is due to the mentality of new players or the loss of old, I cannot be sure. Kokawa's departure from the eJapanese scene did not make anything easier, and since then we have had little imperial, and governmental stability. You can bring a horse to water, but you cannot make it drink. The eJapanese people, quite sadly, refused to uphold (drink) the "law of the land," not just your acclaimed political elite. Will a new Constitution take it's place? It probably won't happen until the imperial vacancy is filled.

> National Military
Sadly, even you should know this one: Game Mechanics. The economic firestorm created by the admins makes it close to impractical to fund and supply the eJapanese Military on a regular basis. In the future I hope they can come to their senses and implement a system which actually works. I for one would not mind a funded, supplied eJapanese Military. We need more than sticks, stones, and silver tongued diplomats.

>Forums
I use this phrase a lot, but I will use it again. Over my dead body. If someone wanted to take away the forums I would have an article up faster than Tyr posts boobs. You have been absent from the forums for a while, perhaps you could come back more regularly?

>Immigration
That, my dear fellow, is what is known as "political deadlock". If you think you can resolve the situation please PM Kitsune or Geezus.

Everything is not lost yet, keep your chin up and hopes high!

"The "Serbian crisis" is in reality a Japanese crisis. And it affects Serbian (new Japanese if they like) and eJapanese alike."
Just little modification:
The "Serbian crisis" is in reality a eJapanese crisis. And it affects Serbian (new eJapanese if they like) and eJapanese alike.

And yes, personally i like eJapanese as i'm equal to you or any other who has eJapanese CS.

Back to the article. I agree with you almost completely. I came to the eJapan to find my peace. But, in any way, if the peace means that we will troll each other and just stay in the place, then we will lose the fun and leave the game.
I saw too many people leaving this server. Those people i liked, those are my friends, i'm still in the contact with them. They lost the main thing here: there wasn't fun any more for them to log in.
If we don't have any purpose here, common one, that will happen to us also.
Don't get me wrong, it will happen in any way, sooner or later, but i prefer it'll be later.

Oraizan Day 1,892, 22:42

As usual, quality article from Tarasino~
Voted, and I agree for the most part.

I was also around for the consitution's beginning, but not it's end. I'm sad to see that eJapan doesn't follow the same principles I used to know and love.. or the same structure. But it is probably just a mirror of how the government's have been, as Kei said. Decline of interest, government's not supporting it. I hope more people bring interest to things outside of eRepublik. I have seen eJapan prosper first-hand with such things, and I know they will work to bring the community together.

IRL I made my best friends by working hard with them on something, be it when I was in school working on some project, attending an event together, or for my current job. If we can find something to work on together I know we'll all be able to accept each other more. That's that the charters, consitutions, and laws outside and inside of eRepublik stand for. Right now, we can assume eJapan is something to work together with.. and plan towards a future together for current and future eJapanese.

I hope that I can bring some of eJapan's rightousness and virtues back anyways, if not structure and respect world-wide.

As for party-lines, 100% agreed! This is why SOS will always remain a global party! and allow citizens from other parties and countries to participate in our party decisions, structure, events, etc. and be an SOS Member. Save the eworld by Overloading it with Something fun! I don't want to see any of my friends old, new, or future friends get bored and leave either. I also don't want eJapan or my party to be a dictator ship, where few people decide things behind closed doors, and party-line votes. That just puts people in a stereotype and hides them from the rest of the ecountry and eworld.

As Oraizan and Myung, i was when the constitutions was in effect, But the Constitutions live because of people and for the people. If the people and the goverment does not care that, its just dead word. In that times, we loved our constitution and we were proud of it. There was always a problem, the self-rightnouss principle, which was complicated to handle due the mecanics of eRep, the boreness about to fight a war was more, and we started a lulz war against eSK, and it came the downfall. We broke our constitution and with that, a perfect order in eJapan. Another point to say, half of that or 1/4 of that contitution was about the role of the Emperor, and without Kakawa, it becames outdated the constitution.

Do you say have we not any goals to achieve because our State is dead?

Yes, we have one. Rebuild the State.

tarasino Day 1,893, 01:24

Myung Kei,
regarding the forums, may i remind you that, right now, the Japanese congressmen are writing a law that has as its first article that this law is only effective if only the 5 PP agree to it and as long as they and only THEY agree to it.
So from now on, not congressmen, but the 5 PP are the will of the Japanese people although they were never voted as such. They are planning to declare themselves as above the law. They say : All japanese people should obey the law but we can choose to opt out. It is written almost black on white that eJapan is not a country anymore but a group of 5 tribes where the 5 tribechiefs now rule solemnly. They are so sure they will never be removed from their thrones that they have started to show off with the months they have been PP. It is disgusting. Such laws are a shame. No civilized nation calls that "a law". That is the most indecent form of moral bankruptcy for a "culture".
It happened on your watch, in your forums and you did not yell "Over my dead body". Because you can not make one single man respect your laws, you have decided, you, all, now want a piece of it.
I am against that forum because people like you go crooked there to come here ingame and play the "paladin of justice". It is a place , where people like Geezus and Akki, share the country between them and then return here to play the "fathers of the nation".
If you are such a man of principle, if your party, the ISP, is such a protector of democracy; i, here, publicly invite the leader of your party, DankChronik, to go to your beloved forum and write under the Immigration Law, in capital letters : OVER MY DEAD BODY!

Until then i reserve for myself the right to "paint you with same brush".

"Give up your dreams of freedom because to save our own skin we are ready to make a deal with your slave masters" Is this what eJapanese people should be told? We will change the national language from English to Balkan? ((Serbian, Macedonian, Croatian or whatever else?))

Veprina 22
Veprina 22 Day 1,893, 05:28

Kinjiro, that doesn't make sense? This is multicultural comunity, how can national language be Balkan (there is no such language, all languages are diferent, i cannot talk serbian with someone from Bulgaria, or Greece...) we must have english as a enational language, and have huge respect towards japanese ( someone start to give us lessons, that is nice, you should try).

Kinjiro Tachibana
Kinjiro Tachibana Day 1,893, 05:40

It makes sense when brain is used, everytime a country is PTO'ed there were multiple cases of Government changing its language to the one they came from e.g. eNorth Korea.

I know its not a lanugage, by Balkan as added in brackets ((Either Serbian, Macedonian, Croatian or anyother from where ever the PTO'ers come from))
If you want to help eJapan and be eJapanese citizen LOSE UP YOUR ideology of old nation you came from and adopt the eJAPANESE one and than you shall gain respect of the eJapanese citizens.

Myung Kei
Myung Kei Day 1,893, 05:43

@Tarasino

You know full well that there is absolutely zero chance that a PP voting system will come into practice; the proposal is so wildly unpopular that it is supported by only one radical fringe party. The other PP's have thoroughly shot down the idea in private or on the forums, and sure, maybe they can be more public about it. Can DankChronic make the same pledge that I did in the thread? That's up to him, I can't control his actions, I can merely advise as a member of the ISP. Should he? I think he should, maybe in more polite terms.
This 'proposal' is no more of a law than your average, willy nilly idea that gets thrown about onto the debating public. But hey, that's the price we pay I can't silence the suggestion of (ludicrous) ideas. As a fellow champion of democracy, I would at least expect you would allow people to merely propose these things. What we decide to do is up to us, including you.

The fat lady has not sung yet on that issue. Nothing has been done, nothing has moved forward. At least we know where you stand on the issue.

I'd hate to point this out, but your stance on the forums is highly hypocritical. You castigate it as a bastion of Geezus and Akki, but don't go there yourself to change anything. Geezus hardly, if never, comes on; most activity is conducted by the other parties, it would take a mere 2-3 minute look to realize that.

it would be helpful if, alongside your fiery passion, you were accurate.

MK

Kinjiro Tachibana Day 1,893, 06:00

Be a lolicon, siscon and a hikikomori.

The ultimatum is simple, if you are citizens of eJapan and want to help eJapan:
1. Why making new party and creating a PTO threat?
2. Why not join a existing party if you so desire to help eJapan? the less parties there are there is less probolems.
3. As for congress election I could not FIND a single party introduction of eSerbian's that were suppose to be in the congress, us eJapanese citizens KNOW nothing about those people because WE ARE TOLD NOTHING!

Start blending in not sneaking in.

"When the time comes to deliver the final ultimatum, our surrender will be voluntary, because by that time we will have been weakened from within spiritually, morally, and economically."

Kinjiro, when we made article for introduction, you called it media TO.
I did join existing party, about month ago.
You will not find any eSerbian article, because we are eJapanese.
I am 10 person by number of posts on forum, and each day my party members asking for CMs there.
Right now we are also discusting img law with other partys.

You do understand most of eJapanese citizens do not visit forums? I did not ask for eSerbian article please start reading correctly I said eSerbian's aka eJapanese "eSerbian" citizens. Please show me some the article of where you introduced your party members that will run for congress and their testimony on what they will try to improve and so on.

Existing party - eJAPANESE party before you all came here.

I came here in october. I chose party were a people actualy doing something, beside troling.
We are still young option in political stage here, we must gain resource, org for keeping them, write down party program, manifest. But for now, we are just trying to get along with everyone who supports our efforts.
I personally stoped PTO team that wanted to come and infiltrate eJapan. Those guys are now in ePakistan and making a mess. True name for us: RL Serbs- eJapanese. Not eSerbs anymore.

@Kinjiro,
some of the most respected "old" citizens of eJapan have used PTOs for political reasons. Nobody considers them traitors. Why? Because they have given enough proofs in the past that they mean well with this country.

@ Myung Kei
My point is simple. This kind of politics, done in the forums or in game, is creating disatisfaction. Disatisfaction in the "japanese" and the "serbian" part of the population. And when people are disatisfacted they easily take extreme positions.
You accuse me of hypocrisy regarding on the forums. I would say it is the contrary. Your position is hypocritical. The battle on the forums is all about power on both sides, even for you. . The ISP wants the forum because in the forum it has a majority, in game it has nothing. The same goes for Geezus. He had nothing against the forum as long as the decisions went his way. Both parts don't care much about forum or not forum as long as THEY are the one who get to decide.

Myung Kei
Myung Kei Day 1,894, 09:05

@ Tarasino

All kinds of politics create dissatisfaction, whether or not it turns into political drama depends on who prevails in the end, the cooler heads, or the firebrands. eJapan is a passionate society with plenty of people with polarized points of view. You are looking at it the wrong way, the different points of view are not a result of the bad politics, but are a cause of it.
It's chronic in eJapan, and that's okay! The way to accommodate it it is through reconciliation and moderation.

We can through around all the conspiracy theories that we wish, but the reason the ISP likes the forums, as it does the new Radio Project and other culture projects, is because they inspire activity. "Power" is irrelevant, all we want is for people to be active and contribute to the community; again, you are using a "broad claim brush" when you should be using a "fine fact comb".
The Forum Congress is its own separate universe compared to the forums.
