    Proposals:

    1. The Way of Peace

    We prioritise internal infrastructure such as libraries, temples, marketplaces, etc, and attempt to build any Wonders by using conventional pre-building techniques. We try to maintain friendly relations with our neighbours through trade and other peaceful agreements, and adopt an aggressive posture only when under threat of attack. Our prefered governments are Republic & Democracy, and our ultimate goal is a cultural, diplomatic or spaceship win.

    2. The Road to War

    We prioritise all things military such as units, barracks, etc, will attempt to rush any Great Wonders with Great Leaders or capture them from other civs. We will regularly declare war on our neighbours, and attempt to capture cities and extort as much research and gold from them as possible. We will not as a rule wipe them out, but leave them around so as to come back and repeat the process. Our prefered government is Monarchy, and our ultimate goal is to achieve any victory condition other than diplomatic, for all the other options may still be open to us for some time to come.

    Poll duration: 96 hours or until quorum is reached - whichever is the later.

    We are warriors, born and bred; a militaristic society. The Road to War is our road to victory!

    I think a road to war would be nice, but monacry is not the goverment to do it in. Republic in my opionion is a much better war-time goverment.

    During war, Monarchy is a vastly superior government. MPs keep people happy and the advantage of no war weariness counters Republic's financial advantage. Republic is good if you want to wage occasional wars but generally pursue a builder philosophy. Marchy is what you use when you want (or expect) frequent wars.

    I have always been a builder. I believe it is better for people to build things up, rather than tear them down.

    For peace, Fanatika!

    Generally I'm a builder, and I voted the Way of Peace. But I'd also keep a good army, and not be afraid to use it as warranted. I'm not sure if we have a large enough territory, with ample enough resources, to be strictly peaceful; until such time, we should use our military judiciously.

    If we build, I would like to see a large standing army at the ready to attack when we decide to go to war again.

    Currently, our only advantage over the other civs is our military strength. Shall we discard this advantage to challenge ourselves further? I think not.

    I am for peace for now but in the future, we will need to attack and gain control of more land.

    40, we are even losing that. The Roman Army is on par with our Army in numbers.

    ..wars do not make one great. All true great nations have been builders and then warriors, look at Rome, Greece, China, India...a true nation must build firm so it can support all else, including an army. All nations that conquer without the proper infrastructure cannot mantain the lands that have fallen at their feet, look at Alexander.
    I see no path what-so-ever in a warlike society.
