Wittenberg / Re: Reviving the TalossAssistant Programme

I must have missed a message somewhere or forgot to add it to my to-do list.  My apologies.

I can help with whatever you need, but something about your proposal causes me to pause and I'll need to to do some homework.

In the EU, GDPR rules limit what can be done with wholly automated decision making processes.  I need to confirm that an automated assignation system like you propose doesn't fall foul of those laws when being applied to our citizens residing in the EU.  I'm nearly sure that we will be fine to do what you propose, but I just need to read the relevant GDPR article first.

Per on both

I'll come back to this.  Just posting to let you know I've read the post.

Point of order.

Does the Mencei agree with me that it is entirely inappropriate for people who are not members of this House, be that a member of the Talossan public, a Member of the Cosa or even the King himself, to barge into this chamber and speak without prior invitation or permission?

... i don't believe i am qualified for any positions because i don't really understand the workings of the positions or the government yet. I only claimed my seat as a way of learning how things work LOL


Sadly with only the three of us involved the process of electing officers may become a joke

You are an expert already.

Seriously though, the Provinces are a great place to start.  A very low risk 'sandbox'.

Indeed.  The only bit I'm not sure about anymore is when exactly our first session begins because the Ziu timetable is a bit different than it used to be.

I vote for ESB

I have located the package D.N. Vercária shared with me a couple of years ago. Will share with our Archivist

Please also forward to me.

I second the nomination of ESB

That's a good point, Gluc. 

There are some things that should have a fast track.

Ok, who had 'BenArd predictably and reliably wades in with comments about Reunision being the worst thing ever to happen to Talossa' on their Divisive and Bitter Figures of Talossa Top Trumps Cards?

Could we also remember that this is NOT just about the events of the past several months where the King abandoned his role and then assigned the most divisive personality in the country to serve as his regent, and that those events are merely the most recent in a long chain of events leading to this point? (It's not even the most recent.  The most recent was his blatant disrespect to the government by not awarding a National Honour that we instructed him to award).

King John has repeatedly stonewalled his own government multiple times on multiple issues for quite some time.  He dragged his heels for months over releasing his personal control over the kingdom's website infrastructure by repeatedly ignoring his own Ministers.  He flat out ignored his Minister of the Interior when his input was requested during the drafting of the Investitures Act and the State Opening of the Cosa Act.  The list goes on...

It is no wonder that the we have reached the point of wanting to 'slam the door shut in Blackrod's face'.

To claim that a piece of legislation is the end of the road is very un-Talossan and outright harmful to our political life.

I agree.  It would be extremely harmful to our country for someone to claim that any piece of legislation closes all future discussion on a topic, forever.

But of course, no one is claiming that.  No one is asking for that.

Instead, monarchists are asking -- quite reasonably! -- what exactly republicans are conceding with their proposed presidency.  As far as I can tell, the only concession is that republicans are not getting all that they want right now.  But that's not a compromise, and it's really hard to see why a monarchist should support it.

If republicans were saying that they would commit to preserving the role of the monarchy in the future if this deal passes, then that might be a compromise.  It would be a bad deal, but at least it would be a deal.  But they are not making that commitment.

No one is saying, "You must promise to make no changes to the monarchy under any circumstances forever," because that would be an absurd request.  But it is equally absurd to pretend that it's simply impossible to make any commitments about your future intentions!  We do that all the time -- this Government has done so repeatedly in recent years.  For example, the coalition agreement states that the Government "will investigate further avenues to sell our coins and stamps."  Was that some crazed pronouncement demanding impossible fealty?  No!  It was a reasonable expression of future intentions.  If all the coins were lost in some tragic accident, then no one would be upset that they stopped selling them.

I am glad that some individuals have expressed reservations about further action.  But there is no official statement about this because there is no larger deal, and no republican considers themselves bound by any compromise.  And that's because there is no compromise.

To me, anything that retains a King as the head of state but introduces a working democratic way of electing/sacking them, is a compromise.

I will note that you are again highlighting a key problem with this "compromise," which is that the people proposing it have not made any commitment to retain the label of "king."  You don't seem to think you are bound to keep it, even if you do think it's a good idea in order to fool Americans into immigrating.

Yes.  Election pledges and manifesto promises are made all the time.  What is not done though, is asking for firm commitments on absurd hypotheticals that may never happen.  Yes, the coins might all be lost in some tragic accident one day, but it would be entirely unreasonable to demand that, today, we had the answer to solving such a hypothetical problem.  Would you like us to commit to a future crowdfunding venture that we might need to do but might equally might not need to do?

It seems like you are asking us to make commitments on future actions based on fantasy and prophecy.

I've said already.  From my own personal place in this, my future voting intentions and legislative approach will only seek to go beyond the scope of the currently proposed compromise if a fundamental shift forces it; that if the monarch in some way misbehaves to force action; that if a material change in circumstances develops.

And, again, this is not a proposed presidency.  Every time you say those words you are speaking a completely disingenuous untruth.
