Reclaiming our wayward canton
« on: February 13, 2020, 09:38:19 PM »
Now that the attempt by Fiova to seize control of it has been thwarted, I suggest that we, the population of Benito, do everything possible to bring the secessionist canton of Florencia back into our provincial embrace.

One potential means to help secure that outcome, rather than seeing any further Frankenstein proposals like the previously-thwarted one by advocates of provincial mergers, would be to also back the dissolution of Fiova, in favor of restoration of the traditional border between Maricopa and Maritiimi-Maxhestic.

Well, unfortunately the Government doesn't seem keen on "mergers from above", so the dissolution of Fiovâ doesn't seem likely, only the fusion of preexisting provinces. And with KA not being very keen on mergers last time I checked, testing the waters for a FL merger could be interesting.

(Also, am I seeing Istefan Perþonest officially reneging on his own "Perþonest Plan"? :P)

The purpose of Fiova was to give the Republic's citizens a room of their own in the Kingdom.  Both an outside evaluation (seen from their role in the recent governments) and an inside one (measured by their own willingness to go through with the F-F merger) suggest they don't need one anymore.

So, both as the designer of the "Perþonest Plan" and as the only person to ever be Cunstavál of Fiôvâ, I'm perfectly willing to hoist a "Mission Accomplished" banner and toast Fiôvâ at its merger and/or dissolution.  That the time for something passes is oft enough a signal of success, rather than failure.

This is simply not going to happen.
