    Planning for Re-Education Camps - best practices

    Thankfully, the Party has been able to take control of this community and truely make it about the People, we need to develop the ideal and most pratical layout for the re-education camps for the "less-than-willing".
    • Barracks - focused inward to a central court with all rag covered windows facing it to encourage the examination of fellow members.
    • Perimeter walls - solid and smooth 16 foot barriers (built by the members) to prevent the unimpeded education process.

    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    There must be community gardens to share work and the bounty of the people.

    Oh yes comrades do not forget the important placement of watch towers! We must observe the activities of our comrades as they are helped to understand the importance of our Great Leader

    Comrade planners, one must not forget the importance of setbacks in planning re-education camps. I recommend any camp be set back a minimum of 300 kilometers from any adjacent human settlements.

    Comrades,

    Let us not forget that planning for these great assests is only one portion of the well-itended project. The Re-Education District has the final call on all design, location, and programs for the camps.

    That being said, architecture design is strictly controlled in my portion of the glorious jurisdiction. All residential quarters are minimalistly designed. Four to Six, 5-story block buildings are mandatory as a minimum design. Balconies are strictly forbidden.

    Comrade aparatchik PlannerGirl, we could not help but notice that you have again placed reference to our Great Leader at the end of a sentence! Assuredly, this was an oversight on your part?

    On an entirely unrelated matter, you are requested to report to the Secretariat of Language Affairs at 1800 hrs. Please bring a change of clothing and a toothbrush. That is all.

    Part of the Re-Education process will include clearing the land by:
    "cutting down ... the forest... with... a herring! "

    The camps must have "shrubbery that ... looks nice and not too expensive."

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Comrade Maister thank you! You are correct and I will report as requested

    You must not forget that reeducation camps should be placed next to a busy, high-capacity intercity passenger rail line, one that that guests can easily employ when traveling to the camp.



    Given all the site planning and location criteria, I believe the best location for a reeducation camp is in Гранд-Рапидс. Construction using strictly volunteer labor will begin immediately.

    Glorious Leader, how generous and kind of you to remind me of my forgetfulness and stupidity. Stanskyfest 2007 polls will be up shortly!!!

    I propose that the camp include a potassium fertilizer production plant and a tractor seat factory. Our studies have shown that farming collectives in the region have faced shortages of potassium fertilizer. Considering that we have ready access to the world leader in Potassium, Kazakhstan, we should exploit all means of utilizing it. Another study found that tractors were being shipped without seats, while a Lada plant in Minsk was installing tractor seats in sedans. Nonetheless, they did exceed their quota for the year.

    Comrades...it appears the capitalists have insituted a counter-revolution and regained control of the Community's Great Committee. As the Great Leader would want, we must not interact with their like, for fear of philiosophical contamination.

    End Thread.....for now?
