|While a healthy, private defense sector is in Aloria's national interests, it is also in Aloria's national interests to maintain a state defense industry. This is so because the nature of the private market is unpredictable. If a major defense contractor goes out of business, it is important, during the downtime from when that contractor goes under to when a new contractor can take its place, that Aloria's defense needs be met. For that reason, the Democratic Rationalists propose DASI, to establish a national defense industry to act as a buffer against the vagueries of the private market.|
Old value:: Defence industries are privately owned and not subsidised.
Current: Defence industries are privately owned but subsidised by the state.
Proposed: The state owns national defence industries but these exist alongside privately owned defence industries.

|Random fact: Moderation will not approve a Cultural Protocol request within the first 48 hours of it being requested. This is in order to give other players a chance to query the proposed changes, if they wish to do so. Moderation may be approached for advice on a proposed change, but any advice proffered should always be understood under the provisio that no final decision will be made until at least 48 hours after the request has been formally submitted for approval.|
