What? Philip Fish is a capable Secretary-General? We cannot stand for this! Revolution, I say! Revolution!
The OAM is in crisis yet again. This time, spikes are being polished and sharpened for Philip Fish’s head to be put on them. To be frank, this hatred of Fish is simply because he’s popular and he’s capable, simple as that. I don’t get it. Fish (or Fishy as he’s known as in these parts) has proven himself again and again and again that he is a capable Secretary-General. If nobody agrees with this, just remember the fact he’s been in power four times, three terms of which he was elected.
In addition to this, people are calling for his resignation and even the dissolution of the OAM. Some have been anticipating this and have begun constructing new organisations. There’s no denying the fact that the OAM isn’t what it once was, the introduction of the forums proved that. However, just because the OAM isn’t as powerful, influential and ‘ZOMG I WANT IN’ as it once was doesn’t mean it has to go and the SG’s head run up a flagpole. Take a look at TASPAC, the room is 98% non-TASPAC related but also host to TASPAC Grand Council votes. Just because we’re not passing resolutions among us all the time doesn’t mean we’re inactive and have to go.
One thing that amazes me though is that Fishy is for some reason the target of all this hatred. ‘Death to Fish’, they say, ‘he’s a dictator and has to resign now.’
Fish is in that elite group of micronationalists, that includes Mr. Reinhardt and Mr. Lucas as well (and hopefully someday me too). He didn’t get there just because he goes gung-ho over everything or that he has a brilliant voice or that he’s Greek. No, he worked for it, and because he’s a voice of authority and worship within the community means that he’s the target for the hate. Aldrich will vouch for me on this, rank equals hatred, simple as that.
So, to wrap up this rant, those nations who walked out should pipe down. Go and make a new organisation if you want. But I won’t be joining the exodus, I’m going to stay loyal to the organisation Sirocco’s been part of since November 12, 2010.
Don’t be daft, seriously.
And I apologise profusely for the insane activity on the part of the Sirocco Times and the Alston Picayune. As part of Sirocco’s reforms I shall see to it that things are different round here once we hit the other side of my 17th birthday. Happy birthday to me!
