It has been a year and a half since the admins have introduced dictatorship. Democracy that we used to know, that was our way of governing society, has lost its purpose as many dictators have risen to power and subjugated whole nations, rendering political parties and ordinary citizens essentially powerless. We now do not have our voice in government anymore. We do not have a say in what laws will be accepted or what our foreign policy will be. Being overpowered in military terms, we can only submit to dictators as revolutions against them usually result in no more than approximately ten days of liberty.

 

This is the way that real life dictatorships work, but there is also more to this. There is a way to enrich this syncretism of military and politics and the time for change has come. Allow the citizens to refuse to pay manager taxes if a dictator is in office! Allow us to choose to keep the money as an act of civil disobedience. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

 

 

Civil disobedience is the active, professed refusal to obey certain laws, demands, and commands of a government, or of an occupying international power. Civil disobedience is a symbolic or ritualistic violation of the law, rather than a rejection of the system as a whole. Civil disobedience is sometimes, though not always, defined as being nonviolent resistance.

 

 

This change would introduce new dynamics to the game and let ordinary citizens to once again become active members of their societies. Even if we are allowed to keep only a part of the tax (say half of it), it will still be interesting for citizens to involve in the game in this way. The proposed civil disobedience acts should be voluntary: each and every one of the citizens living in a dictatorship should make this choice by its own free will as this will take into account the dictatorships that are actually supported by people. The dictators could be offered to buy currency for the state by special price to compensate for the lost taxes.

 

Possible modifications:

  1. Expand this idea to democracy.
  2. Do not let the citizens refuse to pay all the amount of the tax, instead, limit them to only half of it.
  3. Create a Democracy Fund where the money from the tax would go into, and let Congress or President manage it to start a revolution.
