Today I’ve got this Issue on my Nationstates (nationstates.net)
Where Have All the Flowers Gone?
As the state rounded up demonstrators protesting for the right to protest and media personalities agitating for the right to agitate, the nation’s jails have become massively overcrowded. Now there are several proposals to ease prison overcrowding.
I’ve encountered with 4 choices
1. “I can’t take it anymore!” shouts Dixie Gennaro, handcuffed and accompanied by three armed guards. “Ever been forced to share a cell with someone who can’t go a single hour without ranting about permanent revolution or the failed dictatorship of the proletariat? Back in the day, all you ever had to worry about was getting stabbed by a rival gang. Please, can’t you just kick them all out of the country or something? If I have to listen to another political manifesto, I’m gonna snap!”
2. “Well, the felon makes one good point, I guess,” muses your Internal Minister, Jack Merkel. “But exiling them to Bigtopia or Marche Noire? I know where that goes. They get picked up by their puppet-masters across the border and get refurbished into a fifth column. Internal exile is the solution: send them to the miserable desert and force them to work in the salt mines. Their life expectancy will be low, but that’s not necessarily a problem.”
3. An elderly man, wearing his old army uniform, looks up from his newspaper grumpily. “Bah! Back during the war, y’know what we did with spies? Take ‘em all, line ‘em up against the wall and shoot ‘em! Problem solved!”
4. “All those solutions don’t sound like real solutions,” states Monica Strange, your newest advisor. “If we were more lenient with the political opposition, then our jails wouldn’t be so overcrowded. A lot of countries seem to manage with dissent legal; why not NATIONSNAME?”
5. Dismiss the issue
