Nazi march in America?
Someone with the Twitter handle @JuliusGoat just dropped one of the best Twitter threads in history, about the white supremacist/Nazi march in Charlottesville.

Why couldn't I move?
Hey I was playing Italy in this game. I tried to have my fleet convoy my army in Tuscany to Smyrna. Neither were being attacked or blocked, but I was unable to make this move. Why? Here's the link to the map: http://webdiplomacy.net/map.php?gameID=203295&turn=9&mapType=large

Unpopular opinion thread
I saw this posted on another forum and it ended up being a great thread.

Post an unpopular opinion you have, and only comment if you (dis)agree under others - no arguing.

-Global Warming is a giant hoax and anyone who believes it is actually anti-science.
Strongly disagree, also stem major, and I'm surprised at how literally all the scientists I know are anti-science by this opinion

jails should not exist (actually, no idea how unpopular is this idea), but then what? for non serious crimes, if its the first time, there should not be punishment at all. For serious second time crimes, just dead penalty. For the rest, just unpaid work (not necessarily forced)

Finally, there should not be 'speech freedom' as we know it today, it's because of that, that there are idiots that deny global warming, for instance. And the whole civilization as we know it, might collapse because of global warming

No 'speech freedom' AS WE KNOW IT TODAY. As I've expressed before in this forum, I think the word 'freedom' is one of the most abused words I can think of.

But let me add some thinking. 'Speech freedom' should not be restricted for individuals.

But may I ask, how should we call someone who falsifies a physician degree? And then, how should you call an institution that tries to make you believe they are doing science but actually have other kind of motivations? If you have a private institution without some kind of acadamic credentials, producing and distributing to elementary school teachers hundreds of thousands of panflets that 'disproof' climate change, you should at least audit the money they use to do that.

This is just an example, called 'Heartland Institute', ironically the first word of their lemma happens to be 'freedom'.

Defend your freedom for lying to your people.

principians stop breaking the rules, we're not allowed to argue, but just because you're throwing crap out there.


public schools are usually backed by government fiat, so if you're impersonating someone with federal credentials: that's pretending to be authorized by the collective governance of the people, which belies basic societal rights. furthermore, using a patented school crest and a forged signature on a graduation certificate are both illegal. also neither of these are actual speech, rather actual physical actions done as deceit. hell, impersonating someone on public ground is not illegal, unless you provide forged documentation, are speaking to a public official, displaying their personal information without consent, or are inciting violence against them. you're equivocating both public and private rights, and you're also not considering the high school level philosophy of rights and liberties, which is that your rights end, where another's begin. this is why free speech is not allowed to directly incite violence against an individual, but not extended to block unpopular speech. you have a right to your own personal opinion, but not to threaten another with bodily harm

now PLEASE, DM me if you want to talk further, but let's stick with the OP

HOW TO PLAY THIS
The instructions did not mention this scenario: If you attack a province that someone occupies, but that someone is moving their unit in that select province to a different province that is unoccupied, their move cancels and they have to defend their province which is being attacked right? I know this to be true based on my own experiences, but I wanted to confirm.
