Voting begins now and concludes at the end of voting for the March 2021 Clark.  I will Clark a similar resolution for the entire Ziu, but thought it appropriate after all to put this before us as our own body.  Thank you, all!

Senäts Resolution (February-March 2021) in Memory and Honor of John Carl Eiffler / Art Verbotten


WHEREAS John Carl Eiffler of Milwaukee, Wisconsin - known to Talossans as 'Art Verbotten' - was in the Talossan community from at least 1980 onward and was active from the mid-1980s through ca. 2010.

WHEREAS he was an active citizen of the Kingdom of Talossa and later of the 2004-2012 Republic of Talossa and whose April 2004 renunciation of the Kingdom helped (along with Bill Cooper's renunciation the same night) throw the full light of clarity and truth on Ben Madison's vendetta against Kane Gruber,

WHEREAS his presence in Talossa was one of consistency, approachability, and a continual fount of wisdom,

WHEREAS he was called the 'Conscience of Talossa',

WHEREAS he was born 14 July 1964 and died on 10 January 2021, though the Kingdom did not hear of it until a fortnight afterward,

WHEREAS he was able to, in only a few gracious and pointed words, distill a conflict and put all sides in their places, seeing through everyone's b-s,

WHEREAS he was just plain cool and his loss is a profound one to the Talossan Kingdom community, the micronational community at-large, the Talossan expatriate community, and most of all to his family and friends outside of Talossa,

WHEREAS the Kingdom of Thord has left the building,

THEREFORE, the Senäts of Talossa extends its profound sympathies to Eiffler's family and friends as well as to R. Ben Madison, Ián U. Metáiriâ, and all the greater Talossan nation.

May John Carl Eiffler / Art Verbotten be remembered for his wisdom, wit, and for being a giant who walked among us.

Rest in peace, brother.

Proposed on 19 February 2021 by the entire Senäts of the Kingdom of Talossa, of which Eiffler had been a member on at least one occasion - Authored by Gödefrïu Válcadác'h, Fiôvâ
