|The Stoic Movement|
|Founded||February 21, 2012|
The Stoic Movement is a CyberNations micro-alliance on the green sphere, with focus on promoting a life in harmony with the universe, over which they know to have no direct control nor seek to have it. TSM seeks to achieve a virtue by maintaining a moral character which is in accordance with the Nature.
The founder of The Stoic Movement is Zeno Robur of Pneuma.
The Stoic Movement is an alliance based on the principle of stoicism. The Stoic knows that destructive emotions are result of errors in judgment and that person of "moral and intellectual perfection" does not suffer such emotions.
"If you work at that which is before you, following right reason seriously, vigorously, calmly, without allowing anything else to distract you, but keeping your divine part pure, as if you were bound to give it back immediately; if you hold to this, expecting nothing, but satisfied to live now according to nature, speaking heroic truth in every word which you utter, you will live happy. And there is no man able to prevent this." - Marcus Aurelius
The purpose of the The Stoic Movement is to form a CyberNations identity under which all members can manifest their prohairesis - the choice involved in giving or withholding assent to impressions.
The goal of The Stoic Movement is to develop and follow a deterministic set of rules which allow their members a harmonic existence with the universe - the rest of the CyberNations.
