I sincerely hope it is. Education is one of the most important gifts and these days teachers spend more time with our kids than we do. That means they have a greater influence on their lives, so it's important that we give teachers the tools to help our kids.
Oh, that is definitely not me. Bless you for doing it!
I've had half a dozen issues accepted into use myself (although none of those ones were among them), as Bears Armed, and am working on more.
A large part of the fun in running this nation is the opportunity that it gives me to try options -- and even issues -- that my more serious nations wouldn't go near...
Yeah, I understand that. I think the first 10 puppets I created were purely because I kept encountering issues that would allow other ways to run a nation. First a made a "good" nation that answered issues compassionately; then the reverse, a corrupt "bad" nation; then one dedicated purely to science and technology; then one to allow maximum freedom; then one that focused on the military...etc etc
Benjamin Franklin :)
I did not create the poll, but here's a quite interesting article providing some context for Franklin's words:
The words appear originally in a 1755 letter that Franklin is presumed to have written on behalf of the Pennsylvania Assembly to the colonial governor during the French and Indian War. The letter was a salvo in a power struggle between the governor and the Assembly over funding for security on the frontier, one in which the Assembly wished to tax the lands of the Penn family, which ruled Pennsylvania from afar, to raise money for defense against French and Indian attacks. The governor kept vetoing the Assembly’s efforts at the behest of the family, which had appointed him.
So to start matters, Franklin was writing not as a subject being asked to cede his liberty to government, but in his capacity as a legislator being asked to renounce his power to tax lands notionally under his jurisdiction. In other words, the “essential liberty” to which Franklin referred was thus not what we would think of today as civil liberties but, rather, the right of self-governance of a legislature in the interests of collective security.
What's more, the “purchase [of] a little temporary safety” of which Franklin complains was not the ceding of power to a government Leviathan in exchange for some promise of protection from external threat ... The governor was accusing the Assembly of stalling on appropriating money for frontier defense by insisting on including the Penn lands in its taxes. And the Penn family later offered cash to fund defense of the frontier--as long as the Assembly would acknowledge that it lacked the power to tax the family’s lands. Franklin was thus complaining of the choice facing the legislature between being able to make funds available for frontier defense and maintaining its right of self-governance--and he was criticizing the governor for suggesting it should be willing to give up the latter to ensure the former.
In short, Franklin was not describing some tension between government power and individual liberty. He was describing, rather, effective self-government in the service of security as the very liberty it would be contemptible to trade.
I’ve somehow managed to get this nation into the top 05% for ‘Most Cheerful’! Guess the people are just too stupid to know any better…
