Re: Discussion of the draft Constitution ¶
"Asgardia is a Constitutional Monarchy that is the first free space unitary, social nation under law that is above ethnic, national, religious divides, based on morality, fairness, peace and the equal dignity of every human being, which looks to the future and the infinite space of the Universe."
No way in hell am I joining a monarchy, constitutional or otherwise. Why should I trust one guy to keep our best interests in mind? Even if this changes, this is a ginormous red flag, and I'm feeling a bit uneasy here.
"2. Asgardia expands its territory by creating Asgardian localities on Earth, near-Earth orbits and celestial bodies."
How on literal earth would asgardia claim any territory on earth? There is no way in hell the current nations of earth would easily let Asgardia purchase land. Territorial claims are more of a huge deal to most nations than you might think. Last time a rich guy even attempted to make an artificial sea nation, a lot of nations worked to make that stop. Why does Asgardia need to have any place on Earth to begin with?
"Space citizenship of Asgardia is a special type of citizenship and does not constitute dual or second citizenship for the purposes of Earth nation citizenship. A citizen of an Earth nation becoming a space citizen does not confer multiple citizenship status unless otherwise stipulated by an international treaty to which Asgardia is a party."
2 questions: How does this work, and how would we ever get nations of the world to accept a citizenship system like this?
