Hello, Know Your Meme. I am Thomas Nair, and I figure I ought to make clear where I stand on the issues.
I do not intend to establish an oppressive regime. I intend to establish a democratic society, where the government is run by the people, for the people. However, I also believe that the government must retain a significant degree of control over that which it presides over.
The Western Federation is fully democratic. However, there are laws in place in the Federation that prevent anyone from being considered above the law. This is my promise to you.
There will be none who get away with actions that disrupt the community. There will be none who get away with exploiting members of the community. As Forum President, I will ensure that all are held accountable. Even site administrators.
We will do our best to distribute karma fairly, but at the end of the day, our karma economy will remain a fundamentally capitalist one. We will prevent users from exploiting the system to receive large quantities, and we will do at least partial redistributions on those at the very top. But we will not force them to give up all their karma.
In the end, the Federation predominantly seeks to maintain established order. We will separate anime and other Eastern forms of media from comic books and other forms of Western media, but only insofar as ensuring that threads exist for each on the forums. We will also not allow threads about Western media to become too prevalent.
Most of what I will do as Forum President will be focused on the education of BNMs, the FNGs of KYM. Teaching them the ins and outs of the Textile markup language, instructing them on proper posting etiquette, helping them create better meme entries so they aren’t deadpooled immediately upon posting. I will also help them either find or create the threads they need in order to discuss their favorite works.
I just want to make clear that I am not running on a platform akin to that of Cerberus or Terra Firma: I will not allow bigots to join the Federation, nor will I support a bigoted position stated by one of my supporters. I cannot make this distinction clear enough. Never could.
I sincerely hope you understand the positions of the Federation and the positions I hold. My position is one of bringing order out of the chaos of the internet, but without restricting the freedoms of its Users. You, the People, are the greatest asset in the Universe. It is up to YOU, as Users, to determine your own fate. There is no destiny save that which we make for ourselves. The future is a blank canvas waiting to be painted.
I will stand up for You. I will fight for You. I will do what I must, just so you may experience a better internet tomorrow. Your will is my command.
I am Thomas Nair, and I approve this message. For the Federation!
As for my favorite food, I dunno. I pretty much just eat whatever food comes before me. I guess I’ll just say rice, since there’s simply so many things you can do with it.
