No. I am not really that big into micronationalism anymore. I have been going through a lot the past 2-4 years. Some of it great, some of it terrible, but usually "bad but not terrible" (although, that adds up). I also feel like, now that I am involved in anti-authoritarian communist movements, my history of costume Stalinism is shameful. But yeah, part of me wants to live in solitude, watch TV, and stop trying to change a cruel world. However, I would be lying if I said I didn't miss the opportunities for artistic expression micronationalism gives people.
Yeah, I am aware you and various others really admired me. But the fact is that we were preteens and while preteens are people deserving of respect, as you get older, you grow as a person. I am pretty sure my 55-year old self will be trash-talking my 42-year old self. :P
- Erusia was in even worse taste. The main aesthetics of the DPRE was "Stalinist state with human rights abuses". If they were actually carrying out human rights abuses, they would get a visit from the British police. Erusia was way more insulting than the USLSSR or Burkland because human rights abuses were one of their main things. BTW, Sebastian Linden is the person behind Erusia... I am glad the person using Nazi imagery backed off. It makes me think they weren't a seasoned neo-Nazi but someone who thought the Nazis had bad-ass symbols. Most micronationalists are preteens who are exploring their identity and that's fine. The problem is that not everyone grows out of dictator worship.
- I don't think communism will bring about a utopia because the worst things humans have done have been due to ignorance, not malice.
- Wow, the list of all of the creative non-micronational projects you're doing is impressive. Writing also helps me with depression. [Here's an offensive movie idea I came up with to express how I felt during a serious depression. https://pastebin.com/Mj8L3ZeY] I am not going to make it into a story because I am afraid of being disrespectful to the victims of the KKK and other terrorists. I still plan on writing a dystopia called "Cocoon". Losing both your faith and your relationship can be really hard due to the social and emotional support those things tend to provide. We are alive. We just have to make the best of it, find the things that make us happy and make the journey less hard for others. It seems like you have a lot of good hobbies that keep you happy and occupied.
- Unlike all of my previous nicknames, I actually had my name legally changed to Rachel. :P Burkland (talk) 05:23, 10 January 2019 (UTC)
So, I’m doing a survey, I’m trying to find out what the most popular micronation is; so can you name 5 micronations which you think are the most popular?
The information will be for the Micronational Popularity Index. If you have any questions please ask me.
With regards to historical events
I am glad to hear that you are well and that you are back in the micronational business. Don't worry about the past - we were all teenagers, and it's been so long ago if you think about it.
Of course, I will gladly accept your honour. It would be a good way for me to remember my short tenure as King of Domanglia.
All the best, Ciprian
