In his recent speech, Vice-President of Secundomia, Parker I, spoke out against political and religious extremism.

The speech can be found below

Greetings Secundomians, micronationalists and others. Everyone knows too much of anything, even if it is good, can have disastrous results. This is the reason extremism should not be tolerated. Whether it be monarchist extremism, absolutism, communist extremism, or Fascism, political extremes are, in the whole, terrible for a nation. In religions, extremism also abounds. Islamist Extremism can be found in terrorism across the world, christian extremism can also be found. Every religion has it’s extremes, and none of them are good.

Lets start with Political Extremism in one category: Anarchism. I am a libertarian, and yet I know total anarchism would be terrible. Anarchism would cause the world to break down. With no laws, some people could enact terrible things on others, without resistance. If everyone was nice to others in the world, Total Anarchism could be the proper philosophy. However, as anyone would know, there is no way to ensure that people stay in line, without some form of governance. This is the reason Total Anarchism can never work.

Anarchy is not the only political extreme. There are others, like extreme Communism or Socialism. These extreme variants cannot work in a practical world. The restrictions that these variants impose on a people are too much. Communism and Socialism require total government control of the market. This restricts people’s freedoms to buy and sell what they want. Why should the government decide what people want, and at what price they can buy them? Even if the government is elected, the wants of minorities in the system are nearly ignored. Also the people are forced into jobs, because the government cannot allow an industry to die in Communist and Socialist systems. These people are forced to preform tasks that they may not have to in a free market. The people’s rights are trampled! And extremists say they are defeating oppression! What kind of twisted logic is that?

Now let’s go into something completely different, and yet very similar: The religious extreme. Of course, if political extremes are so wrong, then religious extremes must be wrong as well. As an atheist, I beleive there is no deity or deities involved in the creation or operation of the universe. However, most people disagree. They say that there are deities, or just one deity, more often, involved. Although I disagree, I respect everyone’s rights to beleive in whatever they want. However, religious extremists often don’t. They claim that their religion reigns supreme, and that others must bow down to it. These extremists often act in inappropriate ways to express their beliefs. For example, Islamic Terrorists have committed many acts of bombing civilian buildings across the world. The MicroWorld has seen a Hindu extremist nation, Rajputistan, cause trouble. And Christianity also has it’s extremists. For example, a Florida minister is staging International Burn a Koran day this September Eleventh. We should mourn the acts of extremists on the sad day of 9/11, not commit ones of our own!

What should we do about extremism? Extremism must not survive. People have the right to beleive what they want, but when they take it too far, they cannot be tolerated. Fight against extremism! End the oppression of extremists! People of the world, it is time to rise up and fight!

  1. This is a good response to extremism.

  2. Normally in this situation, I would day ignore the extemests because they’re not worth anything however, with extremism on the rise. There is a threat from all sides. From extreme Fascists, the the Taliban, to the ones who dump edable food in the sea just to keep prices high (Extremest Capitalism). What you have done is good because you aren’t stereotyping and your telling an honest truth. Extremests create stereotypes that lead to discrimination in society and I will happily support you in this.

  3. Amen.

    The RUL has a non-extremist policy. I’m glad to see we are not the only ones.

  4. I, too appreciate this response to extremism. Salania has had several violent extremist groups in its past, and although others have condemned it, the police and military have responded to force with force. Luckily, none now exist to my knowledge.
