    Charlie Doctrine


    The President of the American Republic, Charlie Harper, has announced that under his Presidency the Republic will follow the 'Charlie Doctrine'. Under this doctrine, the American Republic pledges to provide financial and military aid to any nation coming under attack unjustifiably. "We shall secure peace in all of America and contain aggressive expansionism", the President said. "We shall not tolerate warmongering and attack on peaceful nations and we shall aid those who come under attack with the full military and financial might of the American Republic! Any petty dictator, warlord or populist politician thinking that he can wage aggressive wars without consequences will be proved to have been badly mistaken. We are committed to peace and international cooperation. Aggressors will be wiped out from the face of America."

    Kingdom of Bermuda unveils new flag
    Ever since Bermuda's defaced British Red Ensign was retained as the national flag of the island kingdom upon indepence, both lawmakers and citizen groups have called for its replacement. Several proposals for a new national flag were submitted by the public in a nation-wide campaign earlier this year, from which the five best were chosen by the cabinet in consultation with an international panel of experts, including an anonymous Catalan vexillologist who happened to be in Bermuda conducting research on the effects of hideous flags on mental health.

    The following flag was eventually chosen as the national flag of Bermuda after a two-round vote in parliament, and subsequently hoisted for the first time at the Royal Palace in Hamilton this week:

    To: The Non-State Actors in North America

    While we are the only true successors to the United States government, it would be absurd to deny the importance and the existence of the communities who have risen up in the wake of the complete collapse of the federal government. While we desire the reunification of the United States of America, we acknowledge that we must do it with your cooperation. We are in no position to reunify our country with force and nor do we want to. We hope for the peaceful reunification of our great country. To that end, we call upon all willing communities to begin a dialogue with us to begin the process of a peaceful reunification of our great country.

    We will be mainly expanding in the West Virginia and Virginia areas this year, we ask you not to expand in these regions to avoid potential border conflicts.

    The highlighted provinces are zones that will be put under the control of Georgia these coming months.

    The darkened provinces are the core zones of interest and rightful territories of the Confederate State of New Georgia. These territories are non-negotiable, and Georgia's sovereign right to rule over the area is best to be acknowledged.

    The State of New Georgia simply wants its old territories back. Nothing more, nothing less.

    SYNDICALISM AND YOU!

    A guide to all prospective workers, foreign and domestic

    Are you being exploited in your workplace? Are you making peanuts, perhaps literally so, while your employers profit stupendously over your labor? Do you constantly lose your basic human rights, such as life, liberty, and property in the name of the "bottom line"? Do you get beaten by pinkertons and the army for ever daring to utter the word "freedom"?

    If you can answer yes to these questions, syndicalism may be for you!

    Syndicalism isn't just a socialist economic policy; it is a complete restructuring of society so that every man and woman on this Earth are entitled to the same prosperity as their neighbors. No actor, be it god, king, nor master, can exert undue oppression on their fellow person. No one has to suffer poverty and starvation, and in fact the standard of living improves across the board for the 99% as wealth is more fairly and equally distributed.

    So what is Syndicalism?



    Syndicalism is, at its core, workplace democracy. Imagine, if tomorrow, you kick out the owners of your factory, or office building, or restaurant, etc., and that you and your coworkers now formed a union to collectively oversee the mean of production that you seized. In your union, you might elect an overseer among your ranks to manage the day-to-day functions, but any major decision would be democratically decided by within your union. Everything, from hours, shifts, production quotas, hiring, and anything else you can possibly imagine, you as the worker will have the fundamental and inalienable right to weigh in and vote on a course of action. All profits will be collectively shared by all workers equally, making sure that the labor you put into the production is adequately compensated. No longer will you have the rich fatcats steal your labor and your wealth.

    By having you, the gentle worker, in charge of your workplace, you will suddenly and dramatically see both the quality of your workplace and your work increase. You will have a vested interest of keeping your workplace open and profitable, as its successes will now more directly translate to wealth in your own pocket. On the other hand, as you can decide your own rules now, you can make your own workplace as modern, safe, and comfortable as you desire. There's no corporate owner above you to tell you no against a longer break, or shorter hours, or a third weekend day.

    Of course, like-minded unions of a same industry will want to cooperate with each other. They would want to make sure that labor is equally distributed, and following standardized practices (such as the fundamental right to work). Hence, unions might voluntarily join a group of unions of that particular trade, forming what is a syndicate. Depending on the structure, size, and scope of the syndicate, an individual union will elect one or multiple of its members as representatives, so that these syndicates can make policy decisions that can effect an industry as a whole. Of course, the individual right for a union to enact workplace democracy is sacred, and thus if a particular syndicate's rules get too unbearable, all unions have the right to break off and form a new syndicate.

    And the top is the Federation. The Federation is where all syndicates meet together to discuss policy that can effect the nation at a whole. The Federation makes sure that syndicates don't oppress the individual unions and keep the promises of the Second Constitution to all citizens. Equally as important, the Federation also coordinates essential services such as health care, education, and defense directly, to make sure that everyone has equal access as guaranteed under the Bill of Rights. Finally, the Federation also oversees cooperation between related syndicates, such as resource/goods transfers, so that everyone is following their word and no one is taking advantage of the other.

    If all of this sounds appealing to you, don't wait! Every worker has a fundamental human right to form a union, and no piece of paper can take that away from you. Get your fellow coworkers to join in a union with the expressed interest of a syndicalist system. Keep it underground if you must, but form them and find like-minded unions in your country. Contact the Syndicalist Party of America if you need financial help in maintaining your union. Soon enough, when your industries are unionized, general strike! Refuse to work, and starve the fatcats of your labor. With no way to profit off of you and support their way of life, they will either surrender, or perish.

    You have nothing to lose but your chains!

    “I take it your meetings with the chiefs have been fruitful?”

    “A small plate of frigs is nothing else; the Mandate has scattered their confidence. I did not heed information as such during the meeting but I did gain knowledge that at least one of them may be scheming to migrate across the borders into Mexico.”

    “The Prophet comes in, the ‘heathens’ come out; I guess the chiefs are lucky that Ocho had enough bonfires for the month.”

    “Either way the chiefs, minus perhaps the one who seeks to migrate, are willing to lend you their support in your efforts to… ensure that the Tocanahuacan Iccen’s blueprints for redevelopment arrive in your books once they get chance to look at them when the Mandate sends it representatives to convey the architecture of Tlamihua.

    “And the apostle?”

    “Aquetzalli will not be joining them but she has agreed to review any proposals; your own may slip into the chiefs’ suggestions.”

    “Will be before or after the Sect of Eight’s session on Ocho’s expansionism?”

    “After; even with time available Aquetzalli would like to be more than simply prepared for her services to her prophet. It was a miraculous that we have the potential to get linked to one of the Sect of Eight.”

    “Eight chosen ones to help the shepherd guide the flock and to the aid the gardener to tend the roses; I pray the almighty and ultimate prophet will be converted to my suggestion, even if Ocho is aware of my involvement as the masses are aware of what the Prophet’s face looks like.”

    “Forgive me but at this moment your suggestion for the lines might prove difficult…”

    “So? The point is to test the waters and see I have access; first road suggestions, next advice on where best to deploy those factories and who should get employed as foremen.”

    “I hope you’re not underestimating the situation; Ciro says that Yoatl is rallying more zealots for the Prophet’s armies. The chiefs were worried they would be pressured to hand as a token of ‘redemption.’ If word catches the ears of Yoatl…”

    “A risk a risk! So, what?! Yoatl they say is a dog that likes to imagine to have a lease; I am sure as long the recruitment duties are prefilled…”

    “I am not worried of Yoatl herself; she recently got herself a Karankawa lieutenant by the name of Kwatch Denoa, who is said to have strong diplomatic connection. If she takes the right sniff she could track down to you.”

    “I will just go to the bogs like the good alligator I am.”

    “Be serious; we are risking more than simply your investments in this schemes of yours. We could quickly the ire of the Divine Mandate and, last we checked, neither of us are inflammable.”

    “But that’s what makes this gamble sexy! The risk is all of part of the game and the game is winner take all Texan Holdem! With the right cards we are going to get a big part of the tithe pie.”

    “If”

    “You’re such a spoil sport.”

    “I guess I will take that regret when we are burning.”

    “O please your reminding me of mama!”

    “And you are turning into the old Matoe Partez.”

    “The old Matoe Partez… how the Hell did he become a 180?”

    “When the Prophet decided to take the whole being stabbed episode as a chapter in the Amok on the virtues of mercy?”

    “The virtues of mercy? Last I checked mercy was not defined in giving your attacker a title.”

    “Either way he may in our schemes prove a danger; former rats can still smell other rats.”

    “I am still surprised when Matoe Partez of all people became an apostle; Itztli the Redeemed they call him now?”

    “Yes”

    “Matoe the smuggler; Matoe the crooked! Who thought he of all people would become a priest, yet alone a high ranking holy man? Well I guess the title of the Redeemed does fit Mr Partez, even after that whole episode… o Ocho you amuse me! A man swings a knife at you and you make him your apostle!”

    “Either way a danger like Kwatch Denoa, though more a gambit to take on.”

    “I do like gambits… but I guess you are right on front; this is getting too reckless. For now we will test the waters with my… I mean the chiefs’ road schemes and we will see the fruit for our trade.”

    “Your smugglers will be ready to settle a black market under the Mandate’s nose.”

    “Presuming o Matoe Partez does not sniff it out first.”

    “Who knows? We could test his faith.”

    “Old Matoe Partez returning to the old ways; I never took you for the Devil, Artur!”

    “I guess you rubbed on me.”

    “O please! Your making me blush.”

    “Anyhow you must forgive; I have an appointment with Maria Gallo.”

    “Yes do; never enrage a dragon, especially our dragon accountant.”

    “I will take the lesson to heart.”

    “And more of the dry spell?”

    “I will see later.”

    “Yes I guess so…”

    Expansion of Military, Investment in Infrastructure

    President Charlie Harper has announced the signing of a bill which would authorize a multi-billion dollars investment in infrastructure as well as an economic stimulus package which would reinforce small businesses. At the same time, he has signed new tax cuts, especially for the rich and large companies. "The combination of tax cuts, economic stimulus for small businesses and infrastructure spending will allow our economy to skyrocket. We shall see the economy expand and the lives of the people improve.", the President said. He also announced further deregulation of the market, abolishing minimum wage, which was already low anyway, as well as allowing businessmen to fire workers for striking. "We have too much government regulation which strains the American economy and does not allow it to grow. I am sure that the measures I have taken will offer incentives to businessmen to invest and create new jobs in the private sector."

    At the same time, he has signed a bill which will increase the military budget. "We need a strong military to defend America and American values, the values of liberty and democracy." In order to make his point, he has visited the Military Academy at Salt Lake City and met with top military officers. "We need to respect and support our military, for our fighting men and women defend this nation from enemies."

    The President has also made it abundantly clear that America will not stand by and allow anarchy to reign in its surrounding areas. He has announced the bringing of new territories into the Republic, all of them peacefully and through an investment campaign called "Stronger Together", which aims to persuade people in neighboring territories to join the Republic.

    We're just over 72 hours elapsed so unless anyone has any demanding questions that would impact their orders for this turn...

    Orders locked.

    Those who did not submit orders will have automation to ensure they don't fall hopelessly behind.
