Forest Regional Message Board
Thank you, for that well written, objective and yet disturbing analysis of our predicament and humanity's general attitude towards it. It is like someone gathered a number of random thoughts regarding this subject that were floating in my head and knitted them together to make a coherent story from them. So sadly it looks like I am in your corner. However I haven't completely accepted that faith just yet and I occasionally still do care. Some remnants of hope are still there if not to "save our planet" to at least "postpone the crash" or reduce the impact of it. Hence my somewhat overzealous crusade against the excesses and flaws of modern tourism and the aura of sophistication that somehow surrounds "travelling". As pointed out by Qaur and Jutsa I am aware of the benefits of tourism and occasionally partake in it. I question however if the good outweighs the bad. If what Bezos, Musk and Branson are doing (what as Uan aa Boa in not those exact words explained is essentially a high tech d!ck measuring contest disguised as an scientific experiment) will lead to "mass space tourism" I will definitely qualify it as bad. If.....and that is a big if "space" can offer us "a way out" the first thing we need to do is to work on new rocket fuel and propulsion technology not waste our limited resources on building the ultimate adventure ride.
My unimaginative contribution to this playlist.....just to get this (obvious) one out of the way. If I had to name an atmospheric, moody song this would be it. Still boggles my mind that this never got higher than 31 in the charts in their home country. Goes to show that musical taste and what we desire from it varies greatly. Too much existential angst in it for it to have mass appeal I guess.
I have a question regarding worldbuilding on NationStates.
When I eventually fully flesh out my political parties and characters, I want to have debates. For example I want to have a social democrat, market socialist, anti-market leftist, and maybe a neoliberal capitalist or distributist debate whether a market economy, planned economy (central, local, indicative, or otherwise), or mixed economy is better.
I would publish this debate (its transcript and events) on NationStates, but I don't know if that would be a Factbook, or a Bulletin, or an Account. Can someone tell me where the most appropriate place to publish this kind of document would be?
Well, what would the debate be for? An election? An inter-party meeting? Just an annual debate that's held? If its for an election, I suggest making a forum or factbook for the election and including that there. If it's a meeting or debate? I'd make a dispatch on it, just because dispatches are for more specific and/or shorter articles. Hope this helps!

And the Arboreal Anniversary Tunes are live! Playlist is collaborative, so those of y'all w/ Spotify accs, add w/e songs y'all think are nature/forest-related. Anybody else, feel free to tg me w/ songs (although for specific versions like MSR's 1992 version of A Forest, I'd prefer an album/cover artist name and/or release year, so I don't have to search through multiple versions of the same song)
a morning after is not a free lunch for business as usual, and trickle down as an economic theory is bovine waste product.
but the propagating of diversity of technological development, including that of a more environmentally compatible nature is a real thing too.
and these to things are really not relate to each other, other then superficially. i understand current motivations are largely economic,
and often tragic, but this is not an unchanging and invariable context. symbolic value is not the only carrot a sapient mind pursues.
if it were, we would not have invented art which was the root of language and communication, and we'd still be swinging through the trees or caves or whatever. which ok, some might argue that would not be a bad thing, but we're here now and what directions we go from here, remains open and optional. we're not going to avoid ecopocalypse entirely, but we still have options, at least, if we can see past the smoke screen of symbolic value, which just because not everyone can, doesn't mean no one can or will (or has or does).
