Repeal: "Commend Northern Borland"
Category: Repeal | Target: SC #342
Proposed by: Noahs Second Country | Onsite Topic
Replacement: None​


Security Council Resolution #342 “Commend Northern Borland” shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

The Security Council,

Conscious of the fact that the nation of Northern Borland is indeed an inspiration to many nations around the multiverse who may celebrate policies such as open markets and gun ownership,

Observing that, despite this fact, the resolution responsible for Northern Borland’s commendation is flawed and uncouth, totally misrepresenting the staid, consistent nature of those who vote on resolutions,

Not entirely understanding the resolution’s glorification of the following:

  • Obesity and consumption of unhealthy foods, while the health problems associated with such practices are not mentioned at all,
  • Lack of child labor and child gambling restrictions, which may contribute to extreme levels of youth crime and general rudeness,
  • A high rate of secularism in East Borland, yet also the heavily religious society of Deep South Borland,
  • Destruction of the environment, despite praising Deep South Borland’s incredible environment,
Dreading the dangerous precedent set by the adoration of such policies, which may result in future recognition of other dangerous nations, scarring the meaning of a commendation,

Emphasizing the many occurrences of the informal and openly sarcastic language used throughout the proposal, such as:

  • The observation that nations are “jumping with joy” over Northern Borland’s extremely high death rate due to the profitability of niche industries that only exist as a result of unfortunate circumstances,
  • Irrelevant details such as the “fashionable” nature of business suits,
  • Various disrespectful descriptions of people-groups such as “murderous lunatics” or “infidels,"
  • Vague claims, such as East Borland “breaking multiple stereotypes” or linking a lack of courts with low crime rates, but not explaining the correlation,
Making a note that if Northern Borland is deemed worthy of any form of recognition by this enlightened body in the near future, it shall be a condemnation for their overwhelmingly disappointing and widespread influence over like-minded nations who wreak havoc on their citizens in pursuit of economic gain,

Nervously hoping the thousands of votes that went in favor of the commendation without considering the points listed above will be rethought, enabling the Security Council to once again be free of unsophisticated drivel,

Hereby Repeals SC#342, “Commend Northern Borland”.

Overview
Repeal: "Commend Northern Borland" is a proposal to repeal the recently passed resolution to, you guessed it, commend Northern Borland. It argues that the high amount of inherently evil rankings warrant a condemnation and not a commendation, and that the satirical nature of the resolution makes a mockery of the World Assembly and tarnishes the honour of a commendation.

Recommendation
The arguments presented in this proposal fall flat. The assertion that Northern Borland should be condemned and condemned only is a fallacy, considering the precedent set by nations such as Wrapper, Australian rePublic and Chan Island, who were condemned for contributions to Issues and the GA, which could be interpreted as objectively commendable. On the flipside, Nuremgard was also commended for 'evil' actions, such as forgery and kidnapping. There is absolutely no need to stick to arbitrary, enforced standards for commendations and condemnations outside of GamePlay resolutions.

The resolution's other argument concerning the sarcastic language is an exceptionally poor argument. It is ridiculous to assert that Commend Northern Borland devalues the meaning and importance of all commendations, future and past, and that as a direct result of repealing the commendation, all other nations or regions with commendations will look much more important.

For these reasons, the Ministry of World Assembly Affairs recommends a vote Against the Security Council proposal at-vote, 'Commend Northern Borland'.

This proposal appears to have been withdrawn. Not sure if it'll be resubmitted, but I'd lock this thread while it's being worked out.

[Also thanks @Comfed for providing that link.]

As of 9:29 AM EST, this proposal has reached the necessary approvals and has entered the queue. Based on my math, this should take the floor at Major Update Thursday night.
