El Glheþ Talossan / Re: Ár glheþ in direct
« on: September 17, 2021, 05:13:43 PM »
I'm waiting for anyone else to tell me when they have the time for a voice chat since my own schedule is extremely irregular and its easier for me to adapt to other peoples' schedules than vice versa.

On that note: When do you have time, Miestră?

The Cosa / Re: 56th Cosă -- Month of Recess Discussion Thread
« on: September 01, 2021, 08:39:53 AM »
One minor point of order is that the proxy I granted has expired for my votes thought to have been for the potential of leading opposition.  That also needed to be based in addition on a vote of confidence which was not exercised in the negative by the grantee, thus did not come to fruition.

That is correct. The current Leader, and only member, of the Opposition is the Honourable Muhammed Yasir from the Talossan National Congress.

Heres an update:

the State Opening was scheduled to happen on Sunday 3pm GTA Time (i.e. tomorrow for me). The Seneschal and Mençei will both be able to attend, His Majesty probably wont, I have no info on the Tanaischteu (that is, S:reu Yasir) or S:reu Rôibeardescù and I can‘t attend for family reasons that only came up today.

I'm on the fence on this, but if the Mençei and the A-Xh agree I'd be willing to accept it as well.

Very well. I ask the Rt Hon Minister of Finance @Ian Plätschisch to respond to this question until the 2nd of September, 18:14 Talossan Time.

BUMP. What a good idea this was, and we still have to do it.
¡¡Ausolümint!! We never scheduled a meet-up. We should do that now.

It still has the typoes in it that I pointed out before, but it looks fine otherwise.

I understand that you're frustrated that so many Talossan politicians only care about elections and then Clark votes, and how the Cosa doesn't function as a debating chamber. Well; that's the way it's always been. You and I both have ideas for how it might change, but we'll have to fight tooth and nail for them for another few years, just like we did for the secret ballot or the 2017 OrgLaw. Up for the challenge?

I can't force MCs to take their job more seriously, no one can. As such, I have no hope that my ideas on how Talossan politics can suck less will ever come to fruition until the MCs themselves change their attitudes.

For elections, which are the only thing which many Talossans will do any more, and that's partly only because it's compulsory. We've tried a direct democracy system in Fiova and... well, you can see how enthusiastic people are about it.
I would be actually enthusiastic about watching you take over a provincial government and setting it up in the way you think Talossa should work.

Don't worry, I wasn't seriously suggesting abolishing representative democracy. It was more like trying to vent my frustration with this backwards hybrid of dysfunctional representative and unenthusiastic direct democracy we are operating under right now. Personally, Id prefer a functioning representative democracy over the status quo.

And to be honest, I have given up on provinces forever ago because of the thing I mentioned above: you cant force people to be enthusiastic about these things. If it's already not working nationally, why would you expect it to work in provinces with even fewer enthuiastic people and even less activity?

The Hopper is a beautiful thing.  Marcel's right.

Y'know, I have a separate issue with the Hopper as it functions right now. It's the place where anyone can submit draft bills and discuss them. And with anyone I mean literally anyone, regardless of whether theyre an MC, Senator, or anyone else. Since these discussions are not based on the individual chambers and non-MZs can submit their own drafts nowadays, I'm starting to wonder what we need the Ziu for at all.

If the entire process up until the quasi-automatic up-and-downvoting is open to the public, why does the public need people who vote on their behalf?

Er, yeah; my point is that Ziu procedure is not any more boring than it ever has been.

That's fair. But what does it tell us if the number one reason why people immigrate is boring as hell, and has only been worse in the past? This may seem like exaggeration or some kind of rhetoric device, but I cannot imagine what anyone likes about it. You've been part of this system for years on end Miestră, what do you like about it?

We do get regular and predictable spikes of activity whenever there's a debate about the fundamentals, though I'm not convinced this constant struggle about constitutional basics is at all sustainable, because in exchange for temporary activity we get a population of tired, exhausted and resentful people. Not exactly fun.

But that was always the case. It has never been different. In the old days before the Hopper all there was was up-and-down votes on the Clark.

The way I understand it, all that means is that going back to the pre-Hopper way of conducting business is counterproductive and only makes Talossan politics less appealing than it already is.
