Thumbs up United Downs - An Arda-Wide Forum for Change

I participate in the Model United Nations association at my school and one day during a long and boring discussion of UN debt I decided to amuse myself by inventing the United Downs. The United Downs is an Arda-wide forum for change where people of all races and species can congregate to discuss issues affecting their world. This community meets regularly in the Barrow-Downs (hence the name--United Downs) and delegates can offer resolutions to solve perceived problems in their areas.

The examples I have provided below didn't take very long to write following the Model United Nations resolution format so if anyone else would care to draft up something I would love it. TheGreatElvenWarrior is in the same class so she may submit something as well; I am certainly planning on making a few more!

Without further ado here are a few examples from the delegates of The Democratic People's Republic of Mordor and the Fangorn Co-operative*:



And . . .




*I apologise for any spelling and grammar mistakes, I tried to correct them but Photobucket mixed everything up. Oh well.

Quite impressive, Laurinquë. Fortunately, Middle-earth did not have a United Nations, or else Mordor would have veto power as one of the permanent members of the Security Council. Mordor would have also demanded that the One Ring be returned as a priceless cultural artifact of the Mordorion people.

Laurinquë... I had to participate in a similar UN model on the last grade of our lower secondary, so when I was 15, so that brings back some memories... maybe I should do one just to remember the jolly (er...?) good times...

That's why the United Downs was formed after the war of the ring, to try to prevent such catastrophes from happening in the future by keeping the lines of communication between nations open.

This is my second year doing MUN, most of the time I like it but discussions can be looong. That's where United Downs comes in.

That would be great! I'm working on my next one, it's a bit addictive.

But wait a minute, I thought you were home schooled. Will you be coming to the MUN conference at UAA?

It's complicated. I go to a charter school that's mostly homeschool with classes (mostly electives) one day a week. One of those electives is Model UN. Actually, TBCS is one of the only Valley schools to send a team. We have people from all the big high schools whose schools were too lame to put together a team who just lumped into ours. I'm going to the UAA confrence. I went last year, too - I was Russia.

I did have a lovely idea, but I can't figure out how to make it an image. Help?

That's crazy. I've probably met you. I was the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland last year and this year I'm Kenya (UNDP) and TGEW is Russia (also UNDP).

It's not very easy, I'd just copy and paste it as a reply. But if you want to know, I wrote it in Word, copied it into Photoshop, uploaded the image onto Photobucket, and then put on the Barrow-Downs.

Or you could copy and paste it into Powerpoint, change the page to portrait and then save it as an image. If you have Publisher this also works.

I'm Brazil this year. I'm either in UNITAR or UNCTAD, I don't remember which...this is probably a problem. I was UNESCO last year.

I'm working on one of those; should have it pretty soon.

EDIT: Ha! I did it:

That could be a problem, but then again the council would probably be ignored by The Self-righteous Territories of Gondor and any action countered with a preemptive war.

Of course (The analogy quite noted) the Gondorians would be right. The UD would simply tell Sauron to stop he'd say "Ok" continue doing what he does. They say "We said stop" and he'd Still Continue.

Sir, Despots like Sauron only understand power and strength they care nothing for 'Dialogue'

The delegate from The City-State of Rivendell says make it 5% and you've got a deal.

The delegate from The Democratic Republic of Lothlorien adds that they get to choose which 5%, though.

When I first read the beginning of the above resolution, I thought it referred to the security issues we've been having on this website. So the spammers that invade our Downs are stepping in Tom Bombadil's footsteps?! Scary!!

Noting with interest the above-mentioned rights, this Wight demands that box of chocolate which was promised!

Thanks to the Alaskan delegation for a fun thread idea!

The Hobbits Association of the Shire notes the concerns expressed by the Estian delegation and proposed an ammendment:

5. Authorizes all wights to participate in a monthly Spammer Hunt for prizes such as: Socks; Cookies; And Tomatoes.

Barrow-Wights for the Eating of Tasty Hobbits also proposes an amendment.

6. Insists that Tom Bombadil return all persons, things, and objects to the Barrow-Downs that he unlawfully and unrightfully stole.

The Hobbits Association of the Shire suggest substituting "their rightful owners" for "the Barrow-Downs", as certain individuals may take that too literally.

The Hobbits Association of the Shire applogizes. Offense was, admittedly, implied. The Hobbits Association of the Shire proposes an amendment to the earlier amendment: scratch everything after "the Barrow-Downs".

*grumbles* The Barrow-Wights for the Eating of Tasty Hobbits takes that as a friendly amendment.

POINT OF ORDER!

The resolution in question is still under control of The Great Socialist People's Republic of the Barrow-Downs, therefore any amendments made to it must be approved by this delegate before they are accepted as friendly. Now, The Great Socialist People's Republic of the Barrow-Downs likes the amendment put forward by the Barrow-Wights for the Eating of Tasty Hobbits stating "6. Insists that Tom Bombadil return all persons, things, and objects to the Barrow-Downs that he unlawfully and unrightfully stole.". We believe it is a good summery of the situation and is not of an insulting or derogatory nature. I would like to accept this as it is without any alteration, and since I was unlawfully uninformed before this was edited I will take the liberty of accepting it as friendly and adding it to the resolution.

Oh, just noticed your amendment Loslote. Hmm... I suppose spammers count. But this was more about the actual Barrow-Downs rather than the virtual one we have to make do with.

The Hobbits Association of the Shire would like to clarify: the spammers in question refer both to the invasion of the virtual Barrow Downs and the unruly teenagers who throw spam at the real Barrow Wight's barrows.

Point of Information.
The Socialist Republic of Khazad-Dum, Otherwise Known as Moria would like to know from where these teenagers are coming from.

(I think that this is a Point of Information.)

They hail from a place known as...

The Real World.

It is a mysterious country that shuns the United Downs. We do not have dealing with it.

The United States of Eriador has had access to this kind of technology before, it was not used by the delegate, however. Communication with the outside world is a bad thing.

The Hobbits Association of the Shire would like to suggest to the United States of Eriador that communication with the outside world is only a bad thing if you allow your citizens access to the technology. If only the national authority figures are allowed to contact the outside world, everything goes quite swimmingly.
