Time to end Obama era sanctions on Russia?
Would it be better to let job creating trade flourish rather than hurting both countries economically? Can Russia be our friend?

The Phillipines
Just because i've been away for a few days, somehow there is no thread about this... One news headline (paraphrased) 'ISIS captures city in Philipines!' Is rather click baity... But goes in to refer to the 'Most Catholic country in south east asia'.

Refusing to draw in established stalemate
Is there a rule that if stalemate is made and it lasts for 3 years with no changes in a sc count, draw can be forced, or something like that?

This is what colonial/state oppression looks like. As far as anarchist are concerned they are one and the same, the state oppresses its own people, the colonial empire oppress other peoples. In China they have this lovely grey area...

Why is Terrorism the only time people feel a visceral response?
I noticed recently there was an incident where a man crashed his car into multiple people injuring many and killing someone. But because it was not terrorism, people did not seem motivated in the same manner against alcoholism as they would have if he were a terrorist. If he had indeed been from any Muslim country at all, and also under the influence of alcohol, one has to wonder if people would just automatically assume it was a terror plot.

American reporter arrested for asking questions to Trump HHS Secretary
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/10/business/media/reporter-arrested-tom-price.html

Freedom of the press is an integral part of the 1st amendment. Just wondering how rightwing media handled or ignored this story about Dan Heyman, the reporter that was arrested for asking persistent questions to Tom Price, HHS Secretary.

On how PPSC scoring does not encourage players to throw games
In our recent discussion (threadID=1432961), many mods and fellow pillars of the community claimed that when you have two Great Powers in a game that have between 12 and 16 supply centers, one of these Great Powers has a (D) points-incentive to throw the game. I disagreed and this puzzled my fellow users, but only Lethologica took the bait when I explained my position. Here it is again:

Juggernaut is actually a horrible alliance
Despite the fearmongering ive seen in Press games about Juggernauts over the past 5 years ive been here...I cant help but note its low rate of success and how its paranoia often benefits France or England most. Please share games where Juggernauts fail miserably. But also include ones which work out in a 2wd (if there even is such a situtation)

It should be starting once Survivor has ended - that'll be around the end of the month.

Survivor is not relevant. Mafia should not wait because Survivor is going on. I look forward to signing up on Monday / Tuesday.

captainmeme (849 D Mod)

It's not waiting because Survivor is going on, it's waiting because Bo couldn't start it until around the end of this month. I timed Survivor to finish up at about the same time as he could start Mafia up.

In the meantime there have been 2 or 3 (I can't remember) Discord games - that's always a good place to look for games during the lulls in forum games.

It is finals season for students. Probably worth pausing to start the next game.

Jamie, Survivor takes up time and energy for a lot of people that play mafia. Games other than Diplomacy on this site don't have the ability to compete with each other and still remain relevant. Meme wanted a shot to get his game off the ground and we didn't want to start a mafia game that might have deterred people from participating, and as it is, Survivor has gone well.

Speaking only for myself, I do think that webdip mafia should be it's own thing separate from discord and it's sad that it has taken so long to get the next one going.

ND, you can't speak only for yourself when you're on the council. I'm not sure why taking a break to a) give Survivor some space and b) let students, such as myself, finish up finals and not be asked to prioritize an online game over academics. I'm sorry that waiting is boring. If you invent a time machine, let us know.

Thank you. You make it sound as if darg and I haven't been working on our setup or are otherwise procrastinating, when our setup has been done and ready to go for quite awhile and after we made it plain following the last game that we could either get M29 going quickly or wait until the end of May. We chose to wait until the end of May, in no small part because the council recommended we do so.

Sure, meme, personal opinions are fantastic, but when he labels the wait for the coming game as "sad" even though he was part of the crew that recommended we wait to start it, his personal opinion comes off more like a pass-off-the-blame move.

Is it Treason to sympathize with the Confederacy?
Shouldnt it be treason to sympathize with the Confederacy? We fought a war and defeated them. Hundreds of thousands died more than any war fought by America. For people who still wish the south had won- chant the south shall rise again or fly its flags isnt this treason?

Should otherkin be forced to give up their human rights?
Are there any otherkin on this site? I'm genuinely curious to understand this culture more. If you identify as something non-human, do you think you have a right to get the privileges that all humans deserve? Or do you believe you're in a separate category and thus have different standards and base rules to start off with?
