  1. @Patine I'm mostly talking about Canada in the past, today it's less really of an empire but you can't deny that Canada's actions may be viewed as empire like, just because Canada is a "good" country doesn't make it less imperial


    P.S don't try to wade me into arguing by bringing Israel into the equation

  2. @Entrecampos My system was designed to simulate seat distribution in a D'Hondt system, so I guess that it can work as is.

    To implement the system you have to make several estimations on what each "Bloc" of voters is worth in seats, let's say that Urban leftist voters are worth 20 seats, the important part is identifying how many seats swing voters constitute, this workaround is good at simulating sectorial heavy politics like Israel's, I think that Portugal can work on this too though. The only downside that I know of is that popular vote doesn't correlate with seat count

    You can always ask me for help if you need to

  3. Honestly I wasn't planning on saying anything, my system can't really work on non pure PR elections if we're honest. But I guess that it's possible to modify it to suit Portugal.


    (Also I tried to code and Israel scenario into K4E only to figure out that I can't change the threshold from 5% which will just ruin everything) @Patine

    Well, the Iranian Revolution would never have happened if the U.S., UK, and Israel didn't strongarm the Shah into selling out his nation and all of it's resources acting flagrantly against his people's and nation's interests, and needlessly antagonizing the religious vast majority community, with such a show of contempt and derision. Of course, what came after the Revolution was far worse, and I am definitely not in support of it, but the cause of it is very clear indeed. The "meddling" thing I was talking about.

    Correct, but I was talking about the current dynamics

    Still, there's a broader thing. I believe big powers like the U.S., France, Britain, Russia, etc. should stop meddling entirely in the damned Middle East! Such meddling has never, in the long-term, done any good and only harm. In fact, the whole institution of "Islamic Terrorism" and "Islamist Fundamentalism Politics," as they are manifest in the Post-WW2 world, did not exist in Islamic history prior to the end of WW2, going all the way back in that history to Muhammed. It is a very new phenomenon, historically speaking, and is purely a reaction to Western and Soviet (and later Russian) interests, in the region - and thus nations are - as Ron Paul, indeed, pointed out in 2008 - the instigators of these movements and the ones who stirred up "the hornets' nest" against themselves.

    This still doesn't take into account the fact that Israel really wants to be America's ally, ever since the 1940s, Israel refrained from getting too much on America's nerves

    in 1956 when it, the UK and France attacked Egypt, when the US issued a demand to stop the whole thing, Israel stopped

    in the 70s, when America pressured Israel to develop an agreement with Egypt, Israel didn't argue too much

    in the 90s, when America again pressured Israel to talk with the PLO, while hesitant at first, they did


    Basically, Israel didn't want to get on America's bad side and see Israeli-American relationships as vital and frankly good, it's more of a relationship between "Friends" rather than an overlord and a vassal

    Well, you're ASSUMPTION made you look like an ASS. And, that same assumption was used to attack and try to discredit me outright. I only actually criticized your solution - you launched an attack on me, and ASSUMED EVERYONE ELSE on this forum, by default and with no actual knowledge of the full facts, agreed with you outright and that you spoke for all.


    ah well you basically went "kids today have no respect for K4E and don't listen to these idiots, they're just teens who always flock to the newest game", which I think is pretty personal.

    Also from a technical standpoint, I freaking tried to simulate Israel on your K4E, but I can't change the fucking threshold to be lower than 5%, which means that I can't do it the justice you want me to give it so much

    I am not an "ASS", I just wanted to help, without arguing with you

  7. Honestly as an Israeli, I look at our apparently "greatest ally" debating our existence and future like it's a toy to be played with and it being a partisan issue, just makes me sad.

    Also I kinda have to point out, when a lot of people style themselves with this new hip title "anti-Israel", they tell me that they're just against the government. Ah yes, I'm against Netanyahu too, he's a corrupt piece of shit and I'm glad he lost the vote last Tuesday. Still doesn't make me "anti-Israel". People flinging the title "anti-Israel" around just makes me sad.

    But your flaw of logic here is thus. You're ASSUMING it's unfamiliar to @lizarraba, and, in general, assuming a general unfamiliarity across the board, and only I whose still posting have familiarity with it or see any value in using it, or see it as being more eloquent than a crude hackjob. Although I admit, I may be a bit pushy with this particular issue, you, in that last post, basically claim to all but speak for every other poster here, by default, and your also pushing which solution YOU see as objectively and irrefutably (as your going on about) more "practical" and less "clumsy." So, before you get self-righteously upset at me for statements here - LOOK IN THE MIRROR, as it were.

    Well I have no idea if lizarraba actually played K4E, so yes I'm "ASSUMING" that there's unfamiliarity with it

    Hi @Ido how did you work out what percentages you gave to each party in the 'demographics', as some of these blocs have different seats favouring multiple parties. It looks to be an interesting work around and i'd like to know how you calculated them.


    I think I need to update that, I took the total votes from the 2015 elections and divided them by 120
