Petition to eliminate "No Pain, No Gain" (or maybe

18-11-2003, 04:33
The issue "No Pain, No Gain" is absolutely ridiculous. I consider Edolia a militaristic, benevolent socialist dictatorship and when I originally got this issue, I chose the third option (basically kinda-sorta-maybe torturing terrorists). I then found that it not only lowered my civil rights from excellent to "very good"(something I've reversed), caused my formerly uncorrupt government to become corrupt (something I haven't been able to reverse) and turned me from an Iron Fist Socialists to a Corrupt Dictatorship (I have reversed this). The wording of it was something along the lines of "citizens frequently disappear off the streets without a trace" (I can't remember exactly). I figured that that was a bit extreme but shrugged it off. I got the issue again last night and instead decided to choose the option to outlaw torture. My civil rights went down from "superb" to "excellent." This is ridiculous.

I'm wondering if anyone else is disatisfied with this issue or if perhaps it was just a bug that made it affect my nation so negatively.

If you believe that this issue should be eliminated, please add your name to the petition:

No one cares? I didn't think so.

Just dismiss the issue

Of course. However, it's really quite annoying that it keeps popping up instead of decent issues.

Sometimes issues can seem weird, and not agreeing to your polices of a nation. I get them all the time. Like the "Meat Protestors" issue. I don't agree with any viewpoints, so I dissmiss it.
