[Artela] A Taste of Things to Come

Day 1,991, 13:11 Published in USA USA by Artela

For a change, Some Music to listen to while you read...
A taste of things to come

Now that the Unity Process Primary is over for the upcoming election, this article is just to let you know of a couple of the things I intend to happen in the coming month. This isn’t everything by any means, but just a little taste (as the title suggests).

For a while now there has been overlap between the Department of Defense and the National Security Council, and it has been unclear who does what and who reports to who and miscommunications happen as a result. So, no more Department of Defense. No more National Security Council. Instead just one Department with one Secretary in charge of it. Welcome to the new Department of War, with Secretary of War Cromstar and his staff directing damage where it is needed for both us and our allies.

It has been much noted by many, myself included, that there isn’t enough fun stuff happening around these parts lately. Too much ‘srsbsns’ going on all the time! So, I have tasked the Departments of Interior and Education with working together with a few volunteers on a new program, Operation Funstuffz. I already know that they will be working alongside Congress to try and get some fun things in the works for everyone, to remind us that we are a community not just people sitting in isolation pointing and clicking buttons on a screen - there is far more than that to a lot of people here. So let's be daring! Let's be dangerous! Let's actually dare to have some fun.

Let’s Have some Fun!

All the best

Oblige Day 1,991, 13:30

Dislike of the Department of War 😕

With the increasing rise and prominence of private MUs, the NSC is more important than ever!

Artela Day 1,991, 13:37

I think you miss the point - this department will do that stuff too!

Hampton H. Hampton

I think means that he is an elite and you did not clear this idea with them first.

Oblige Day 1,991, 15:15

Is this a repeat of what FG did during her term with the "defense" team? Because that didn't work out well.

Maybe I'm missing the point but this would seem to be restoring the old old (prior to A^2's Presidential Term) hierarchy where the NSC Chair reported to the SoD?

fingerguns Day 1,991, 15:33

Oh Oblige...still butthurted that I didn't want you around.

Vanek26 Day 1,991, 19:05

Well, as the man that destroyed the old hierarchy, I'm ok with it.

Jude Conners
Jude Conners Day 1,992, 00:40

Next time, write in Whale for Oblige

Oblige Day 1,992, 05:37

Oh Fingerguns, still butthurt about having a god awful term.

Maybe I am missing the point. I hope Artela can clarify?

Artela Day 1,992, 05:44

Oblige. The point is that there is no need to complicate that department by splitting into two teams, the deputies of which all do the same jobs anyway. We constantly have miscommunication and sometimes no communication from one half to the other, and frankly if someone can't deal with the whole package (just like they do in most other eCountries) then they shouldn't be in the job anyway

How can you not like a Department of War?

Oblige Day 1,991, 15:14

I like the Department of War but this idea seems to decrease the importance of the NSC Chair.

Kody5. Day 1,991, 19:30

Oblige, its THE SAME DAM THING. just a different name

Jude Conners
Jude Conners Day 1,992, 00:41

There will be no NSC Chair. Just a Sec of War that controls... nevermind.

It's about time someone finally changed it to the Department of War. 😁

Lonestar 2 Day 1,991, 13:56

Though it would be better if you made it the Department of Peace. ^_~

Artela Day 1,991, 14:12

LOL - enough of the Orwell already!

Lonestar 2 Day 1,991, 15:29

These things are more fun when you set them up that way from the top down. Personally, if I were the eUSA CP, I'd rename the Dept of Defense the Ministry of War, the Dept of State the Ministry of Peace, the Dept of the Interior as the Ministry of Love, and then fit all other departments and government agencies as additional ministries under those three heads. A triumvirate, as it were, without a vice president. Just my $0.02, never to be implemented.

Cheers. 😁

fingerguns Day 1,991, 15:33

Should be implemented.

Great Idea. U.S may start all working as a team now. Well done Artela...

fingerguns Day 1,991, 15:35

Seems like the people are already doing 'funstuffz.'

fingerguns Day 1,991, 15:45

Not trying to be a butt..I'm all about funsies. Just saying that this is already happening without the government organizing it or trying to make it happen.

That's a very parochial view. It may be happening in odd pockets of the community like maybe one or two parties, but that's only a subset of the players in this country.

fingerguns Day 1,991, 17:42

We must be thinking of very different things, then. Looking forward to government sanctioned good times.

Cubby Day 1,991, 16:43

Department of War--Not only must the name change, but practices/process must too. Consolidating directives is not the answer. Consolidating communication may be.

Sir LeatherNeck

Um.....female writes an article saying "taste" and "come"

I am disappoint.....

I do love WAR though!

Candor Day 1,991, 21:18

Me thinks this MAY be only be the first step in the reorganization of the nations command structure. The more MU's that join AIM (and the more AIM organizes it's independent command structure) the more the nation reverts to a JCOS system, but unfunded. In such a scenario, the third leg of "government" is restored. The Executive's Sec War position is diminished.

None of this having to do with THIS reorganization specifically, but possibly a result indirectly of the new (old) reality restored. But with the funding issue a most serious twist.
