HEADLINES: NEW SUPPLY CHAIN INTRODUCED BY NEW MEMBERS AND CITIZENS.
ASPERMONT, WESTERLANDS - New Imperial Citizens and recruits have added and diversified the UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company’s supply chain, expanding its personal trading market and pumping the clan’s alts with more shit than it needed.
The low-intensity policies the Clan implemented in concordance with We Will Bury Them has somewhat inflated certain product prices.
Not so bad. Guess we can start just messing about with stuff.
EDITORIAL - Self-Preservation is the Root of Panicking.
Irishkaiser - Panicking is a natural response to distress though we have socially and emotionally told ourselves that it is no better than accepting one’s fate. To panic does benefit no one, but what if the evolutionary roots of panicking were survival strategies by those who refused to accept their fate. When one panics, one is assumed knows nothing else of what one could do.
Reverting to baser instincts, panicking throws all logic and rationality out the window. Certainly it serves the group no benefit, but for the individual to panic, it is an all or nothing gamble for their own survival.
Stock market panics for example are inevitable, no matter how rational it is to keep your money in the stock market to maintain stability of prices, you can’t trust the person next to you to reciprocate the same thing. It becomes every man for himself as people fear they will be the ones who will lose their money.
The COVID-19 fears for example. Yes, you shouldn’t panic, for the good of the group. Too bad about those suckers though and the spreading. It is best they martyr their emotions for the good of the group because panicking does make it worse, in spite of their own selfish attempts at self-preservation.
In a battle of any era, discipline was what won most of the day, even though it was accepted that there WILL BE losses. The side that panics first usually does lose, but what if you knew you were the one that was going to be the acceptable loss? Your shield wall pierced by a boar’s snout or position being shelled by heavy artillery. Would you stand and fight or panic and run away or do whatever non-beneficial things there is just to survive?
To control panic, one must first realize the costs and be willing to accept that if you’re gonna be a casualty or a victim of circumstances, you shouldn’t make it worse for everybody and everyone else.

DOMESTIC - Two veteran MineZ players regain contact with the Company
Two regimentals made contact with the Company this week, rejoining the community and expressed interests in rejoining their events. They were put up to speed on the game and were introduced to the concept of a “LEISURE WEEK”.
Maybe that would be our leisure week.
FINANCE - HIBERNATION MODE
With the battering of the global supply chain due to attempts at quarantining the virus, the Clan Bank has adopted HIBERNATION mode and will freeze all activity until the market goes back to normal, vindicating its earlier decision NOT to draft a budget for this year.
There will be no trading but market news will be KEPT updated as to when it would be a good time to invest.
It’s amazing how much finance can give you foresight and insight. You can literally “feel” the world just by paying attention to finance.
FINANCE - PANIC BUYING MAY BENEFIT ECONOMY?
A series of global panic buying in preparation for possible infection has seen marked economic activity recently. Maybe this will be the way out of the slump? The Bank of the [?] Clan will however refrain from trading or moving cash.
It’s still a shitshow, after all.
