    [NationStates] Issues

    So I long on and find this issue. Sounds like it a planner came up with this.
    A group of environmentalists are protesting against plans to expand
    urban and suburban developments into greenbelts, the designated
    countryside between settlements.
    The Debate

    1. "Do we really have to listen to these nutcases?" asks real
    estate developer, Jonathon Cogswell. "The fact of the matter is that
    nature is BORING. Give us permission to build on the greenbelt and
    you'll have pink hotels, boutiques, and swinging hot spots that'll be
    the envy of the region and draw tourists from all around! We can
    always transplant a few trees and put them in a tree museum to keep
    the tree-huggers happy. Stanstopapuck stands to make a lot of money
    from this! Think about it for a moment!"
    [Accept]

    2. "I agree with my colleague here, but he doesn't go far enough,"
    says Naki Mistletoe, a city planner. "These protestors are standing in
    the path of progress. It slows the growth of our economy and harms my
    portfolio - er - the future of our nation, I mean. It's unpatriotic
    and we should increase police funding to deal with these
    troublemakers. Then we wouldn't have to worry about greenbelts or any
    other nonsense about keeping the 'environment' safe. Think about it
    for a moment!"
    [Accept]

    3. "I can't believe what I'm hearing!" exclaims environmental
    activist Lars Wong. "Tree museums? Police funding? Don't it always
    seem to be the case that you don't know what you've got 'til it's
    gone? We're talking about natural treasures and you're talking about
    destroying them. Is there anything that you can build that can really
    be better than nature? We should put a stop to all encroachment into
    natural areas. Think about it for a moment!"

    Does it have a name at the end? Something like "Written by X, Edited by Y" part? If not, then it's one of Max Barry's first 30 issues... Now with all the member written issues there are like 150 or more...

    It was not one of the first ones. I don't recall who submitted it.

    Well since now we have a couple of members that can write issues, I bump this thread so we can use this thread to hear about any ideas for issues and drafts for them.

    While the original intention of this thread was to talk about any interesting issues, let's see this as a hijack...
