Announcement from the Socialist International

Recommended Posts

We have finally finished our Manifesto of Membership (in pigdogspeak, it's our alliance charter). Here it is:

 

 

Manifesto of Membership in the Socialist International

 

Preamble

This document outlines the rights and responsibilities of membership in the Socialist International, as well as its organizational vision and the means by which that vision will be achieved.

 

Section 1: The Vision

 

Subsection 1: This alliance is a red-colored, socialist alliance.

Subsection 2: This alliance does not discriminate based on sex, gender, religion, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or disability status.

Subsection 3: This alliance is a meritocratic democracy which functions according to the principles of New Democracy.

 

Section 2: Rights and Duties of Membership

 

Subsection 1: All members are entitled to vote in elections, challenge their way into the administration, and receive support and defense against aggression.

Subsection 2: All members are entitled to receive the fruits of their hard work, which includes participation in the alliance economy.

Subsection 3: All members pledge themselves to the defense of the alliance and its principles, which includes respecting each other as individuals, fighting in wars, and being subject to taxation by the alliance bank.

Subsection 4: All members can leave the alliance at any time for any (or no) reason, provided they are not in debt to the alliance or deserting during war time.

Subsection 5: All members agree to uphold this Manifesto in its entirety and to always act in the best interests of all of the working peoples of the Socialist International.

"I didn't have time to write a short alliance charter, so I wrote you a long one." - Hereno, back in August.

 

"Okay, here's the short one." - Hereno today.

Too short. I'm still not going to read it, but it could stand to be a few paragraphs longer. Far easier to hide a "Awesomemember1 can disregard this charter and do whatever he wants" clause that way.

Every member should automatically know they will have to defend their alliance to the death ounce they join. I would hope so anyway.

I'd like to point out a grammatical error.  You used "socialist" and "meritocratic" to describe the same noun (your alliance).  Pretty sure that's grammatically incorrect.
