Over the last month and a half I have called eIndia home. I worked to spur on a greater level of interaction and debate in the country. To this end I endovoured to post a plethora of articles in the media and was an active participant in discussion on IRC.
While I was active, the media module was full of articles and more citizens are engaged in debating the day-to-day actions of their government.
I also, albeit controversially, heavily criticized the foolish mistakes and errors of the December CP and his failure to negotiate simple diplomacy and the ending result of us being wiped by eCroatia. I was proud to see the people of eIndia ending the anti-transparent rule of Uv Ajed, and am happy to see the new CP actively providing updates in clean and clear newspaper articles.
This month I choose to throw my hat into the ring in the bid for Party President of the Forward Bloc. I had never thought that I would be a serious contender for election as of my overt critiques of the government, however I was honoured to have garnered as much support as I did, finishing just three votes behind Uv Ajed.
Over the last week, my military unit has slowly left the eIndian shores as the collective group has never felt truly welcome in eIndia and decided to stem the constant ostracization by moving to a more welcoming community. I have struggled with whether to stay or follow the herd. While I am still considering this, the acts of xenophobia that were employed against Addy Lawrence during the recent election are weighing heavily on my mind.
Addy is a strong supporter of eIndia following a shift in alliances (something that made him unpopular with many other UAgg members), he played an active role in the India United Party and served in Congress with no issues of concern raised. He is also a tycoon of industry and employs 179 eIndians. The tax revenue from his companies alone accounts for $8,000 INR a month to the treasury. However, while he has proven to be a friend and loyal citizen there was work done to block him from winning a genuine election by vote rigging. Addy has announced that he is clearly not a welcome member of the eIndian community and will be moving away.
Added to Addy, a number of UAgg members have/are leaving eIndia, costing eIndia an enormous opportunity and undermining the chance of eIndian sovereignty.
It appears that some of the leadership in eIndia thinks that a baby boom should be the priority and I agree, however I would also like to remind them that the loss of UAgg means that eIndia will loose roughly 100,000,000 influence in battles daily, employment of hundred of eIndians, revenue in excess of $12,000 a month from taxes, and the combined experience of some of the games oldest players.
It is very sad that things are not working out, however it has become clear that many feel that UAgg is not worth the benefits, even though the group has never acted in a hostile way against eIndia.
Its sad to say goodbye, but not when you are being told to leave.
