HEADLINES: IMAGE OF THE YEAR 2020 VOTE STARTS. NO EMPIRE NEWS UNTIL THEN
ASPERMONT, WESTERLANDS - The Image of the Year Vote has begun and will go through the traditional rounds system, where the least voted will be pruned off. There will be no new Empire Newspapers until the voting is complete because 400 is a nice round number or some shit and it seems fitting for a special edition. For many, it will be their first Image of the Year as many new individuals both Members, Regimental and Citizen have joined the Company, some just a month ago, others since January-February.
"I literally don't know what I'm doing." says one voter who is completely new "I wasn't around for half of these, but they look cool."
"Discord screenies are gay and low effort. If you vote for them you are a faggot." said another
"I LITERALLY CANNOT STOP SUCKING DICKS" said a veteran who lost his mind in all the previous wars.
For some, it took explaining that you can actually vote for more than one, but eh they get it now. There's always Round 2 and Round 3.
EDITORIAL - How I Imagine the Future: Ya'll will be my slaves.
Irishkaiser - As power, wealth and energy is increasingly shifting to the Pacific & Indian Oceans , I like to think that I am currently in a very good position and opportunity to establish myself in this region rather than look abroad for opportunity as many of my countrymen and kinsmen have done before.
With technological, economic and social reforms, the peoples of the Orient are coming up as a very potent and competitive force over the tired Western nations, who are much more pre-occupied with internal stability and grappling with cultural divides that retard a country's own progress. Make no, mistake, the Western powers are still a very potent force and many Oriental powers ally themselves and also help stabilize their strategic partners and Western friends. Sometimes, they use the West against each other, unknowingly making themselves just as manipulated as they thought they made the West act on their interests.
There will be many challenges and hurdles to overcome before an Asiatic tomorrow is certain as many of us prefer the superpower far away and abroad, then the hegemon close to home, whoever that may be.
One thought I've entertained is the idea of Westerners looking for opportunity as well in the Orient and I thought to myself "Damn, can you imagine there'd be a huge social issue about the exploitative and abusive treatment of white people in our countries?"
I tell a lot of ya'll that I can't wait for the day, where I'd be taking a stand on those things because holy hell, it's gonna be so fucking epic.
