    Fantastic interview! As a former Delegate of SLU, it's great to see the region still going strong and still welcoming to newcomers rising to leadership positions. Particularly reassuring that SLU's foreign affairs progress seems to be flourishing

    [Inside Government] FOIA Reform Dies on the Senate Floor

    Very informative piece! Hopefully the Senate can find some sort of middle ground to the FOIA idea to minimize the potential of what happened in NSUK happening here.

    Ministry of Pod Episode 2.13 - "We went to the conversation in good faith"

    Great episode! Super informative. I certainly agree that institutional knowledge is needed; lest we risk what happened with newer leaders in the NSUK and TCB not understanding the regional norms and the importance of our foreign commitments happening here.

    Europeia Vital Stats

    Thank you for this, HEM! I wonder if we could have stats on forum activity all the way back to before the executive split for an article I'm writing? Or just the forum activity during the talks of the executive split all the way to the first elections

    Great article, CSP! Given I've mentioned this concern over less responsibilities to Kuramia privately, I agree that the CoS/FM should be given the option to designate a councilor/minister as their Deputy rather than having it as a position. I don't think the management activities of either...

    While I disagree with the content of this op-ed, Minister Punchwood’s personal views regarding reform do not affect his ability to serve as Minister of Communications. He is entitled to his own views, since the President and I don’t expect all Ministers to be “yes (wo)men” when it comes to...

    Opinion Piece: Stay the Course

    Or the Senate could move forward with the Project with the minor revisions included to advance back to Constitutional Convention for discussion and/or voting since the Convention has voted on the particular provision that triggered this attempted setback?
