Bloc Libertairé

"Economic Freedom. Civil Liberty. Personal Responsibility."

The Bloc supports complete freedom in both economic and civil spheres of life. We support capitalism, but believe that some restrictions should be in place to promote the safety and welfare of all of those involved in trade. Above all else, the Bloc supports economic freedom and civil liberty. The Bloc is usually described as a party that supports libertarianism/classical liberalism.

Classical liberalism/libertarianism is the belief that government exists to protect people's rights. Nothing more, nothing less.

As libertarians, we seek a world of liberty; a world in which all individuals are sovereign over their own lives, and no one is forced to sacrifice his or her values for the benefit of others.

We believe that respect for individual rights is the essential precondition for a free and prosperous world, that force and fraud must be banished from human relationships, and that only through freedom can peace and prosperity be realized.

Consequently, we defend each person's right to engage in any activity that is peaceful and honest, and welcome the diversity that freedom brings. The world we seek to build is one where individuals are free to follow their own dreams in their own ways, without interference from government or any authoritarian power.

Our goal is nothing more nor less than a world set free in our lifetime, and it is to this end that we take these stands.

The History of the Bloc Libertairé
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

April 2174: The Bloc is formed at a convention of citizens who disapprove of the current government and its political parties. Lucian Lior and Luna Lovegood are elected Bloc Leader and Bloc Chairwoman. They immediately release their manifesto and begin to submit bills to Parliament.

December 2176: After a round of early elections, the Bloc gains 30 seats in Parliament, putting them slightly behind the Neo-Feudalist Party with 32 seats. Bloc Leader Lucian Lior is elected President of the Solentian Republic with 56.90% of the vote. Following the election, the Bloc forms a coalition with the Neo-Feudalist Party, securing 7 Cabinet positions. The following Bloc members are selected to serve in the Cabinet: Fleur Delacour (Foreign Affairs Minister), Draco Lestrange (Justice Minister), Sarah Windsor (Infrastructure and Transport Minister), Emma Watson (Health and Social Services Minister), Topher Greenwood (Food and Agriculture Minister), Rupert Grint (Environment and Tourism Minister), and Lenwë Carnesîr (Trade and Industry Minister).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Bloc Libertairé Manifesto
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The policies and philosophy of the Bloc are rooted in the priciple that ordinary citizens know best how to lead their own lives.

Freedom of choice lies at the very heart of any civic society. The Bloc fully supports that principle.

It means that we respect a woman's right to choose in abortion.

The Bloc respects the right to choose in education with ideally parents being able to send their children to the school of their choice.

The Bloc supports everyone's right to lead the life thay wish as long as it has no adverse effect on other citizens. We support the gay community and gay rights 100%. We deplore public discrimination on whatever ground. The Bloc fully supports civil liberties for all.

We believe in freedom of religion and freedom from religion. Everybody is free to practice their faith as a matter of private conscience. No individual should be subject to the religious or moral opinions of his neighbors. The state should stay strictly neutral in religious matters and defend the secular nature of the state.

Religious marriage should be replaced by legally recognized civil unions for all couples. Religious marriage should be strictly elective and in no way involved with the state.

We oppose affirmitive action which is a palliative. Instead the Bloc supports full and equal opportunities for all in the field of education and the work place. Once equality of opportunity has been fully implemented as a practical policy, individual merit and individual merit alone should be the sole criteria for advancement.

In order to ensure a level playing field and equality of opportunity in economic policy, the Bloc opposes all monopolies and cartels as obstructing the proper working of the market economy. No corporation should be able to use excessive economic power to distort market competition. Corporate welfare will be ended. Businesses must stand on their own two feet.

The Bloc strongly supports small businesses and cooperative enterprises as a means of securing economic diversity and maximum choice for the consumer.

The Bloc supports free trade with restrictions only to protect the rights of others. We oppose unfair trade practices such as dumping.

As far as possible the Bloc will allow the citizen to make provision for his welfare and health. By using the tax system, we would exempt all payments made by citizens into private social security accounts. The citizen and not the state will decide how his money is invested.

The Bloc supports a limited and multilateral based foreign policy. It is not our duty to be the policeman of the world. We will work more closely with our allies before embarking on unilateral military action.

We pledge to work to provide a strong alternative by restoring the rights that the other parties have stripped from the Solentian People.

Signed,

Lucian Lior
Leader of the Bloc Libertairé

Luna Lovegood

Random fact: "Party sitters" can be inactivated upon request. Players who, over a prolonged period (usually meaning a minimum of 3 IG years/6 RL days) are just logging in but not voting on bills or contributing to debates, will be judged to be essentially not playing the game. The player requesting the inactivation should cite this rule when doing so.
