Perhaps Mister von Rumpus would like to have a little chat with the Supreme Court for treason?
The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
Mr. Hapsburg (who I will never call majesty or highness) may talk prettily, but I do not trust him any farther than I can throw him. I am sure that he wishes to use the reactionary rebellion to install himself as emperor, something that cannot and must not be allowed. But even if his motives are pure and he is sincere in what he says, which I seriously doubt, he is wrong. If we simply pursue peace with the reactionaries as we have done so often in the past, we are doomed to repeat this farce. Peace in the short term means chaos in the long term. Reactionaries like those that are rising will never be satisfied until the democracy they despise so much is torn down and replaced with tyranny, whether under a dictator like Lilic or an emperor like Franz Ferdinand surely seeks to be. These reactionaries have proven that they cannot exist in a democracy and that there can be no compromise with them. We must achieve peace only through victory.Lies
Mr. Von Reuss is, of course, a madman, a liar, and a fool. He is clearly deluded and has lost all touch with reality. I think I speak for most people in Danubia when I say that I would sooner die than live under an emperor. I would sooner die than be subjected to the sick, twisted and wrong system that is monarchy. I am a citizen and I will never be a subject. A Danubian Empire would be an abomination, and the idea merits no further discussion. It is utterly off the table.Madness
Pan Mendel you speak as if all Monarchists are right winged, you speak as if having a political belief warrants arrest. I do not know what place you have come from, some twisted and shitty hell hole perhaps but, in civilized places we don't disrespect people and threat arrest and execution for their political beliefs. As a political belief is something you grow up into and is something that is very hard to change once aged and for the most part people don't want to change such beliefs. This is the very same way as religion, you are born irreligious but, your parents, or other family do whatever your religions initiation ceremony is and now you are that religion, and while most people can change they choose not to as it is hard, it distances them from family and is something they aren't familiar in. The same can be said for your culture as well, so you see the only thing you are born with is race, everything else is learned.Some rhetoric that seems deluded and insane to Krysztof
In this iteration of the eighty and twenty, actually, I am speaking for the eighty: the vast majority of people who accept and love democracy, the foundation of Danubia and the national character. Here, I am a man of the eighty, and you, sir, are no man of the eighty. You are a man of the twenty that despise democracy and seek to turn back the Revolution of 1848 to replace democracy with a tyrannous monarchy. I am all for tolerance and pluralism but the current debate has nothing to do with tolerance or pluralism and I challenge you to prove how it does. It is not about tolerance or pluralism, it is about reactionaries trying to force their evil system on everyone else.Insanity
((I would consider my character left wing ))In this iteration of the eighty and twenty, actually, I am speaking for the eighty: the vast majority of people who accept and love democracy, the foundation of Danubia and the national character.

You are trying to hijack the debate and turn it into something it is not, something illogical and incorrect. Democracy is not an extreme. Democracy is not "unchecked, unbridled leftism". You are attempting to make two utterly unequal viewpoints appear equal, but nothing could be farther from the truth. Democracy is a virtue and the foundation of the nation, the heart and soul of the nation, and it cannot and must not and will not be compromised, and nor can there or will there be any compromise with the forces of tyranny and oppression. Democracy is not up for negotiation. The Danubian Federation is and will always be a democratic republic, and that is that.
Mr. Hapsburg, who has done nothing to earn or deserve the artificial title you assign him, is not a man of the eighty standing up for the eighty, nor are you. He is a man of the one standing up for the one, just as you are a man of the one, and that one is Mr. Hapsburg.
You are not my brother. You are my enemy. Anyone who would seek to impose a monarchy or any other sort of tyranny or autocracy on me is my enemy. Anyone who would seek to deprive me of my rights and liberties is my enemy. Anyone who would seek to make me a subject instead of a citizen is my enemy. How can it be any other way? There can be no compromise with the enemies of democracy. Justice is a higher virtue than peace, and in this rebellion we must achieve peace only through victory. I will call you and your reactionary ilk brothers when you lay down your arms and embrace democracy unconditionally, and not a moment sooner.
((Come on, leftists, where are you guys?))
I'm not really sure what a monarchy has to do with the Jewish people, to be honest. A democracy can just as easily, if not more easily, oppress the Jewish people. That is why we must always be vigilant and protect the rights of minorities, even when it is unpopular.I want peace, but I would raise the Armies of Zion before I would let this nation become a monarchy, I would have Franz Ferdinand come into our politics, but as a man, not some deluded Emperor. For too long we Jews have suffered under your kings and emperors, Spain, the Turks and Russia have all killed my people in the thousands, and each time we have had to move on and Survive, but now, we have found a new home, in the new Republics, whether in Danubia or Across the Atlantic in the United States of America, we have now a place to settle without fear of Pogroms or oppression, I ask how can an Emperor appointed by your Catholic Pope represent and protect my people? A Pope who is from a long linage of Popes that have oppressed my people? As I said, I will raise the force of Gʼát himself! before I would let this nation fall under the tyranny of kings again!
