I don't know if Addy is MDP material or not.
He wouldn't have in the good old days. But the MDP these days is a watered down pussified version of itself. I'm sure he'll do just fine.
Venerable: Of course Addy is MDP material. All men may serve the Dictator. They just have to bow their head and kneel.
Greetings fellow eCitizens,
I am almost pleased that the MDP pot is stirring. As Addy, and those of you who read my previous article http://www.erepublik.com/en/article/-mdp-as-i-have-been-called-so-have-i-returned--2129175/1/20 knows, this was my goal. In fact, many of my goals for MDP mirror those of Addy’s, which he knew before publishing his article, because we have been conferring about this business through ingame PMs. But we’ll get to that later. For now, the recent past of MDP.
Before even this can be done, I must allude to a conversation MaryChan and I had last night. In the center of MDP there is a concept. Beyond the tenets, new and old, there is a fundamental yet intangible consistency. Those of MDP know this, they feel it, even if they don’t realize it. This is why the members have stayed, for the most part. But enough of this, for now.
The Recent Past
As all of you may/should know, Simon is lazy. Simon also does not like to roleplay. Due to these things, he has let the MDP stagnate publicly. He cares little for show, for labels such as the Council, as well as for PR related articles. Instead, nearly all party happenings occur in real-time over the IRC, without fluff. MaryChan, myself, Leo, the occasional Rylde, and a few others who frequent the room are among these men and ‘woman’ that could be called “Councilmen.” As far as the Dictator has been concerned, this was good enough.
The interesting thing about a Dictatorship, is the fact that it is indeed a Dictatorship. If Simon, as Dictator, decided he wanted to run the party into the ground, it would be in his power to do so. As followers of MDP, we would have no power against him. By acknowledging that our entire goal, our (see reference above) endgame, is to follow a Dictator, we become his loyal and faithful subjects. If it became apparent that he wasn’t going to pass over the party, those of us who disagreed with it would leave.
The Addy Situation
And now we come to Addy’s run at Party President. I distinctly reference the eRepublik title, because as the “Council” of MDP has decided, this is all that Addy could be. He could not be Dictator.
In fact, Addy’s very “run” at Party Presidency renders the intangible concept of MDP void. It directly contradicts the essence of the party, despite whether his intentions are positive or negative. This is a critical point. Even if Addy has good intentions, as he has sworn to me, he is still destroying that fundamental concept. This can only be a PTO, for it defies the Party.
The Venerable Dictator
Simon has mandated me to become the rightful Dictator for a few reasons. Unlike him, I enjoy roleplay. I also take my roles very seriously, and do all that I can to perpetuate them. I am a man of structure, and of words. I will once more flesh out the MDP, and do my best to restore it to the distinct and powerful Party that it could be. I am sincere. Yet I am also more. I am determined, and critical to the point, as my dear friend Plugson could tell you from our lovely PMs. I am confident, and I am vigilant. I will remain steadfast in my attempts until they have become actualized.
With these virtues in mind, I have been forming a plan for MDP for quite some time. As mentioned before, many of Addy’s goals are similar to mine. For example, I will be reinstating a Military Council that will not be solely operating via IRC. I will also be returning focus to the Tenants of MDP, though I anticipate some clarification and minute changes will be taking place. As stated among these Tenants, I will work to establish MU funding, despite my own, personal religious Military Unit, as well as economic security. As for War, I shouldn’t have to say anything. There will be blood.
Now the involvement with the Coalition. Norsefire and MDP are fundamentally different on various accounts. Norsefire operates primarily through subterfuge and misdirection, while the MDP Dictators of the past have preferred a more direct and pronounced approach. In combination with Simon’s inattention to all things public, this has given the appearance that we have changed our code. This is not true, and the blurred lines will be sharpened.
The Coalition was formed for two main reasons. One, eCanada was getting very boring. It was a rinse/repeat scenario every month, which is something that is currently not the case. Two, both parties have a similar endgame scenario. In the event of a MDP or Norsefire executive and/or legislative, the country would be left with a fast paced government. This was seen directly in Rylde’s second term. The distinctions between the two parties, for they are not “one,” are methodology and belief.
As Dictator, I will not be doing away with the Coalition entirely. I will, however, be taking a step back from it. The two parties will continue to act as friends, and the term “Coalition” may as well be kept. They will be as individuals who wish to obtain similar goals, but they will no longer be seen as the same. Subterfuge will NOT be a principal associated with MDP. From the moment of my election, direct inter-party influence will be a thing of the past.
A Final Note
Let me clarify that this article is not a campaigning run. It serves as both an article of information, and a Call to Arms to the soldiers of the MDP. Your Dictatorship is under direct attack, and you will fight to insure it remains pure. You will fight because that is what you do, because you are the ever-present loyal force of the Military Dictatorship Party. There will be no quarter given.
