Manifesto of the NPW for 55th Cosa
« on: July 10, 2020, 05:47:21 PM »
DREAM A LITTLE DREAM OF A NEW/OLD TALOSSA
"Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage." --Anais Nin

50 WORD STATEMENT: The NPW looks to add levity, peculiarity, and fun to the Talossan scene. Let's help people find those reasons to check in on a regular basis, as well grow Talossa in new and interesting ways. "Everything's got a story in it. Change the story, change the world." -Terry Prachett

1.) PROVINCES- Provinces as they exist don't work, reflecting very little in terms of a cohesive group.  What was once geographically defined is no longer due to apportionment rejiggering.  Let's replace them with affinity groups, which can be geographic or otherwise.

2.) RENOUNCE LAND CLAIMS- Milwaukee will always be the birthplace and cradle of Talossa.  But as Konstantin Tsiolkovsky said, "The Earth is the cradle of humanity, but mankind cannot stay in the cradle forever."  We seek to renounce land claims that we do not control and leave the cradle.  Let the Greater Talossan area remain a symbolic and spiritual homeland.

3.) DUAL HEAD OF STATE- On one had, Talossans yearn for an elected head of government, while on the other hand Talossans treasure the novelty and fun of Royalty.  Let's have both.  Let us keep the current King (Regeu) and add a periodically elected counterpart (Schac'h).  Power can be wielded alternately, or some other arrangement.  Much democracy!  Such novelty!
