|K9K9 Catastrophe: Tulija attempted to keep their role in the disaster to a minimum. As an act of propaganda and to show the region their hands-on approach to leading the region, Tulija donated a small amount of money to the Shaffeyan government.|
In keeping with a balanced and non-interventionist approach (which the previous administration of Progressives believed was essential in not infringing on other nations ways of life / rule / culture - our region is too diverse to force a particular perspective on our heterogeneous populace), Tulija made sure to build up an internationally approved Cabinet consensus before blockading Shaffey, ensuring no one was overly harsh and that the matter was dealt with effectively, before, during and after.
To politicize the humanitarian donation, which saved many lives, in a bid to improve your position is thoroughly reprehensible.
|• Otter-Amsterdon Conflict: Tulija attempted to keep the region-wide debate heated on the wrongdoings of Amsterdon and away from Tulija's own mistakes (negligence), which lead up to this easily preventable war.|
Amsterdon's regime was exceptionally brutal - and the course The Archipelago were steering resulted in inevitable conflict between the too, who had been trading diplomatic blows for a long time. To see you criticise our encouragement of debate is again laughable - we should ignore atrocities presumably? And once more, I'll ask, what negligence? You still have not explained how you'd have better dealt with inactivity than we did; it is a matter beyond the office of Delegate. You have no answer because you know there is none; we can only act and hope that others follow with their activity.
It is also rather laughable you would critique Tulija for supposedly encouraging debate (in your book the same as firing rockets apparently - which is funny as we remained neutral and kept the region out of falling into a larger war), while you yourself entered the war for the very sake of assaulting Amsterdon. "Easily preventable"? So why did you fly in?
|• The inactivity issue: Almost 2/3rd of all nations in our region have ceased to exist due to Tulija's unwillingness to bring regional issues to the leaders of the region, and keeping the region active by leading the region is a way a delegate should: by involving all of the region's members, not just keeping his power to himself.|
Again, "something wrong happened? Must be Tulija"... or perhaps "Tulija can only do wrong". Nowhere does it state the office of Delegate is one of a supranational nanny state. When there was activity, Tulija posed to the region questions on WA resolutions. Now that activty has decreased (naturally, it would never remain exceptionally strong over a year and a half on), each and every vote is taken by looking not only at the resolution with sound judgement, but also by checking how many of GTAF's active voters have chosen to vote - in line with policy, the Delegate votes in favour of the majority in most cases - this can been seen on the resolution with "1-2 GTAF members voted in favour".
We see and respectfully note Shaffey's departure from self aggrandizement to a less absurd perspective, but the position is still untenable. Your primary concerns are activity - which is something we can only hope to change by working together and trying new things. Every single idea or action (government involves the latter as well as the former) conducted by Tulija is anathema to Shaffey - this is dogmatic and idiotic, and never constructive. It is no wonder you have little support.
Questions, debate, criticism, they are all welcome. If they weren't, and if we were the despots Shaffey paints us to be, Shaffey would have been expelled from GTAF long ago. You are safe in the knowledge this won't happen - but you should also be safe in the knowledge that if you continue blinding blaming everything from famine, natural disasters, religious violence, drug violence and the Fall of the Roman Empire on Tulija, then prepare to be called out by fellow members as a fool.
You needn't be derided, if you would just stop acting like you have a hunger for it.
