General Comments / CANZUK

CANZUK would be an economic and military alliance between Britain, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

Here is a brief video to give you the idea:

My initial opinion is that this would be strategically to the benefit of the United States. A robust CANZUK would allow the United States to take more of a backseat in the international stage and be more properly non-interventionist, which I think we need to do, making it easier for us to consolidate our foreign policy. I think it would be a better ally than the European Union has or could be. Fast forward a decade or so, and it could serve as a buffer between us and various regions of the rest of the world, and be a good partner when the United States needs to mobilize. It would basically give us more options in our foreign policy stances.

What are your opinions?

I’ve spent a bunch of time this week rereading a lot of old threads. It has been a wonderful strole down memory lane. The last time I did so was in 2013 after I met OSC. But OSC is in semi-retirement right now. How long is the sit going to continue to stay up? At such time as that he passes, how long will his family keep it up? Play it out over a long enough time frame and at some point it will go away.

I was 23 when I joined and am presently 39. I can see myself at 80 wanting to take the same stroll. Such is my regard for a lot of the threads. While there are a couple threads that I have copied in their totality, there are just so many threads that are enjoyable to pass through.

I wonder if someone could persuade the Cards to put a copy of the forum in a separate FTP location whereby people who want to could download the whole thing. If not the whole site, then at least the present archives up to 2015 with the understanding that they’d allow the same thing for the rest of the forum to be presevered at some future date. That way at such time as that the Cards shut down the site (Or for such time as they hand the site over to someone else who may or may not be inclined twoards preserving it) that those of us who care would have a full copy for their reference purposes.

Thoughts?

Hello everyone!

I had a lot of great discussions on Ornery from 2003 - 2008 that helped me wrestle with a bunch of ideas. I happened to think about Ornery the other day and decided to check to see if was still up. I’m glad to see that it is still here. 

In perusing some of the current threads, there seems to be the very dedicated civil conversation that I remember, but a lot fewer people are participating. Where did everybody go? Or rather, how many stair steps down did it take to get to the current level? How has Ornery been for the past 12 years? What regeneration is the OrneryMod up to?
