Background Information

Proposal title: 'Commend Honeydewistania'

The Office's Analysis

The at-vote resolution, "Commend Honeydewistania", is decently written and presents plenty of reasons for issuing a commendation for the nominee in a nicely structured manner. Honeydewistania has authored or co-authored no less than 20 resolutions in the World Assembly, but additionally to the sheer number of authorships, the frequent help they've provided to newer nations looking to write proposals is what really sets the nominee apart. Also tying in to WA matters is their work in the United Regions Alliance, where they helped in building a professional WA program, but this is only one organization they immensely contributed to: Prominently their accomplishments with the MT Army and Antifa in fighting fascism on NationStates are rightly highlighted by the proposal. Thus, OWL recommends a vote FOR the at-vote resolution, "Commend Honeydewistania".

Not Austria wrote:Of all WA authors, Honeydew is one of the first that comes to mind. The proposal is both thorough and 1000% deserved. Full support.

SouthernSanity, also known as HumanSanity, is a legislator of the South Pacific and a former Delegate of 10000 Islands.

SouthernSanity wrote:Narrowly for this. Nominee has a wealth of GA authorship and smaller contributions in other areas of the game. The writing of the proposal is conceptually well organized (an improvement on the previous draft of this Commend) but does leave something to be desired in terms of style and flare.

Scalizagasti is a WA author and the Overseer of the URA's Assembly. He posted on the NS forums:

Scalizagasti wrote:I fully support this resolution and its commendee. Honeydewistania has been a great friend to me and also a helpful mentor when I began greater involvement within the World Assembly. So far, I have written two resolution proposals, and both times he helped me in the early stages of my writing. As this commendation mentions, he helped numerous other first-time writers as well. He consistently writes high-quality legislation, and indeed is an incredibly prolific writer in both the GA and the SC. I also had the honour of working with him in both Mariner Trench and the URA, so I can confirm that his contributions outside the WA are also noteworthy. He has been a valuable ally in the fight against fascism on NationStates as part of the MT Army, and like this commendation says, was quite instrumental in certain anti-fascist operations. Honeydewistania has proven himself to be a community leader in both the World Assembly and the greater NS world, and in my opinion has truly earned this commendation.

Sylh Alanor wrote:If a commendation is supposed to be a capstone for someone's career, it or the nominee should inspire in people more than a shrug. The lack of enthusiasm about this speaks more to me than the text of the commendation is attempting to. As it would be a waste for me to abstain, I will be voting against.

NEW GENERAL ASSEMBLY PROPOSAL DISCUSSION AND VOTE
---------------------------------------------------

Title: Prohibition of Honor Killings
Author: Greater Cesnica
Purpose: To ban any practice of killing an individual for violating an honor code, and ensure such get treated equally to "normal" cases of killing in criminal proceedings.

Greater Cesnica wrote:The General Assembly,

Believing that honor killings are especially heinous acts that represent a fundamental betrayal of the trust afforded by a person to their relatives and members of their community,

Appalled that such atrocities occur in this current day and age, often with the tacit or explicit support of local authorities,

Seeking to put an end to this vile practice,

Hereby:

  1. Defines an "honor killing" as the killing of an individual by or at the direction of a relative or any other member of a community due to the perception that the individual has brought shame or dishonor upon their family or community, or has otherwise violated an honor code.

  2. Prohibits:

    1. honor killings from being carried out in any member state and;

    2. the belief that the victim of a killing brought shame or dishonor upon their family or community, or otherwise violated an honor code, from being permitted as a part of:

      1. any defense in criminal proceedings questioning whether such a killing was a criminal offense or;

      2. any argument to reduce the severity of criminal penalties potentially applicable to the perpetrator(s) of such a killing.

  3. Requires member states to prosecute alleged honor killings with at least the same severity as they prosecute other forms of alleged unlawful killings.

Honor killings ar part of a culture that we ourselves might adopt. It shows one's love for their nation and could even have spiritual ties. The definition could also be abused.

It's simply appalling that we have honor killings occuring in the world today. There are certain grievous acts that are simply universally evil and the World Assembly has a moral obligation to outlaw such acts when national legislatures fail. I ask that all WA members of the South Pacific vote For so that honor killings can be eliminated.
