Dear citizens of the eNetherlands,
In an attempt to reproduce a succesful formula, our previous party president had changed the party into the 'Van Spijck Partij'. To our biggest surprise, however, the party leadership noticed a direct fall of party membership and activity. Party members have reportedly said the ambitions of the party were growing grey, representing the new party image. Therfore the party leadership have seen the signs and decided to return to the fresh and progressive roots of Libertas NL.
I have been elected as the new Party President of Libertas NL and will represent it and it's ideas even more than I ever did, because the events in the eNetherlands have shown the need for progressivism and sane consciousness is harder needed than ever before. For the party itself, I will make sure it functions as the safe haven of progressive forces again, and will attempt to get the maximum political force out of every individual. That will eventually also benefit the eNetherlands, seeing the recent fall of our population to a mere 400 citizens. Of course, that can be partly contributed to the complete lack of a Minister of Recruitment & Coaching in the last two governments. We will now discuss the other, main issues the eNetherlands are struggling with right now:
While the eRepublik mechanics make it seem like the only way of governing a country is by democracy, there is more needed than just the option of voting to be considered a healthy functioning democracy. Several traits of the eDutch state indeed contradict with this.
First of all, the issue of transparency. Politics are not being executed in-game, but on an outside community forum (the eNetherlands.nl). Therefore most of the decisions are being made there, too. While this has functioned perfectly fine for years, recently it has absolutely not. The older, established parties DemNL and I&W are well seated there, as every party should be, what has caused their opponents to completely shun the forums. This is a very dangerous process, to which both sides are to blame. With this, most of the important information stays unseen by the general public. Libertas will nevertheless continue involving new players to our eCommunity at all cost. The fact that the last few months information by the government has been rarely given out, only makes matters worse. Last but not least, the current occupation has caused us to be left without Congress: Therefore the last elected Congress has extended it's mandate on the Forums for months already, without renewal. This results in both corruption and the lack of new eCitzens getting the chance to get involved. Libertas therefore support the current debate on the establishment of a more democratic 'emergency Congress'
Secondly, the issue of personal conflicts. Our small nation has been divided in two extremely radical sides (as briefly explained in previous paragraph). While this is a natural process, which has happened many times before in the history of the eNetherlands, things have gone too far now. Instead of a political conflict, based on political differences, this is a mere personal conflict between several key figures that has gone political and therefore national. We think both camps endanger the continuation of our nation and would like to both sides working towards a solution. In the meantime, Libertas will look forward to form a 3rd, alternative pillar with other individuals and parties who are sick and tired of this political infighting.
Gain a Base
We've been left without regions for months now, and while some of our brave warriors claim it's good for morale to keep fighting (useless) wars against the Polish occupation, cooler heads should work towards a resolution which guarantees us at least one of our regions. Having those is paramount to the survival of every eCountry. It gives us an elected Congress, which should solve at least some of the political problems as earlier described. It will also results in increased activity, as eDutch citizens can now once again do things that the occupation has made us impossible to do so and might keep newer players stick to our eNation. Therefore we support any negotations with the Polish, and are very very worried about the repeated breaked promises by President Van Spijck on this subject.
Interested by the pragmatic and realistic motives of our party? Join now and build the foundations of the progressive movement within the eNetherlands!
