This is a reproduction of a weekly address given to the Body Republic of the New Pacific Order. It generally runs about once a week, and is an official production of the Media Corps of the New Pacific Order. This address was given in early April, so please note that this address and subsequent may refer to events that are not contemporary with the time of the reproduction post.
The Addresses tend to address principles we believe embody Pacifica, with a heavy emphasis on Francoist thought. Not all addresses specifically discuss Francoism directly, however.
Hail my Comrades!
As we continue in our era of Pax Pacifica, I watch and see loyal Pacificans doing any number of jobs, from procuring tech to sending aid, from recruiting new members to mentoring cadets from the Academy. As I look on, I see something embodied in so many different Pacificans: the pride of Pacifica.
What exactly is the pride of Pacifica? We, Pacificans, do not have pride. We do not have pride in our work; we do not work so that we gain -- we work so that Pacifica gains. When we have pride, it is not our pride, it is Pacifica's pride, through us. That you or I do our job well or badly does not help you or me. The Pacifican gains nothing from performing their job well. It is Pacifica that gains or loses, that has pleasure or pain, from our work.
When we join the New Pacific Order, we unite our sovereignty in an Emperor. When he gains, we gain. When he losses, we lose. And indeed, one cannot but hasten to add, when we gain, he gains, and when we lose, he too, loses. When we express the pride of Pacifica through our actions, and not our petty, individual concerns, we gain. But when we individual asserts itself against the pride of Pacifica, only the individual gains or looses, and not the Body Republic.
That is not to say the Order destroys the individual. It does not. We are great in our diversity, and united in the Emperor, it gives us strength. But there is a difference between the individual and individualism, and we would be wise to remember that we do not have pride in our actions, but Pacifica has pride in our actions. Pacifica cheers for every individual victory and weeps for every defeat. There is no individual gain or loss.
Let us take a moment then, comrades, and give a cheer for Pacifica's victories, for all the victories of Pacifica made manifest through us! From the NCO assigning targets, to the Diplomat writing treaties! From the Field Agent scanning the horizon, to the PCIA maintaining order! From the noble foot soldier of the Order, to the Emperor himself!
