Im sure that its possible to pay for own transport when having a work, the thing that the goverment have to be that bureaucratic will cost more than the ticket it self. I mean why ?

The cost of the lawyer, should be put of that person that loose the law case, why does all the rest of the people have to pay for a few peoples criminal issues for me that does not make any sense. unless youre getting close to the communist party. (but me personal im far from there).

And final yes, the extra police should be payed by the criminals that are getting cought,, ex. cars/van/trucks confiscated in drug busts, or after they got cought from a bank robbery etc., sell them,and let it help pay to the police.. That way its possible to keep a low taxrate, so its actually worth to live a legit life as well if that what the people want.

Thank you for you question, TURAXIS,

The whole idea of free transport is an incentive for the unemployed to seek work, instead of draining public resources for benefits.

Free Lawyers are an integral part of any lawful society. If One finds themselves in a position that they are unable to pay for a lawyer, that should not mean that they are disadvantaged. This is true for almost every developed country today.

This would be a good suggestion for raising public funds; the money could also be put towards other public services (such as the aforementioned lawyer service).

The whole point of our policies is to create a fair and equal society (of paramount importance to the enjoyment of all players). Law should not favour the rich. Policies such as our transport aim to reduce unemployment. These things will hopefully make Identity a fun place, with minimal complaints.

You are sayin you want to keep taxes at a minimum, but not what that means at what tax rate are that ?

The Healthcare system that you claim that youre party will support, in what way ?

Free transportation (for the working class, how will you know if they are working or not ?) and free lawyers (sounds like a paradise for criminals) on the behalf for those that do a legit Life, they have to pay for the extra police you want to put in against the criminals.

I just dont see the logic in it, but best of luck.

Hello Turaxis,

It is great to hear from you. Due to the game not being out yet we cannot fully say exact things. We do not understand how the game will play out until we get in and play around. I am sorry if you found my colleague did not give you a a blunt answer but at the moment no one can truthfully give one. If you need any more questions answered feel free to PM me.

Kind Regards

Pineapple

Ahh my hard earned taxes going towards criminal players does not sound like an enjoyable gaming experience.  While I understand the whole free representation in real life, I don't quite see it in a game setting. While we're not yet sure of how things will work in game, I'm pretty sure being brought to trial in game would denote incontestable guilt. My response is based on the assumption that criminal activity will be recognized in the same way other games recognize it.

I don't believe players will be able to make false accusations against other players, nor will police be able to detain anyone at any time, from my understanding. Like other similar games the player should trigger something in game, whether by witness or not, when they commit a criminal act. This would cause them to be flagged as a criminal in the game. If crimes are witness dependent - meaning all crimes must have a witness report - then there is the possibility that crimes will go unpunished. However, all crimes punished (brought to trial) will need the game to register the crime, meaning that the crime was actually committed.

ArcheAge had a trial system, however all players brought to trial were done so after they had committed a crime - there were no innocents, and the entire trial depended on how many jurors pitied the accused, not whether or not they were innocent or guilty. In fact, many of the accused were repeat offenders. No one 'learned their lesson ' or stopped doing whatever it was that got them there - their entire goal was to commit crimes. As far as this game goes, a large portion of the population plans to do nothing but criminal activity, exclusively dedicating themselves to the criminal life.

In reality legal representation is important to prevent a false positive - an innocent going to prison for a crime they didn't commit - however in this game a false positive will be impossible. Provided that the crime recognition in this game will likely function the same way most other games do, every single player in need of legal representation will in fact be guilty, with no possibility of innocence.  

With all of this being said, players who play the game 'legally' shouldn't have to pay for the enjoyment of those who play solely to commit crimes. Free legal representation to players who knowingly and willingly commit crimes is not something I would ever want to pay for, especially considering the fact that most of them will require 'free legal representation' multiple times a day. Basically you aren't offering 'free legal representation,' you're offering legal representation paid for by someone else, and strictly to guilty parties. 

Honestly what you're professing is counter productive - on one hand you claim you'll free criminals, while at the same time adding to the police force that is responsible for arresting the people you'll be freeing. You'll free more criminals which will require you to hire more police, which will then lead you to arresting more criminals, which will require you to free more criminals, which will require you to hire more police, which will.... well, you get the idea. It works best if you're not refilling the boat that you're trying to bail out. 

As for the whole 'free healthcare, transportation and education ' (not free, someone has to pay for it), I'll stop before I get on my rant about the utter absolute  failure that is socialism. 

I wish you luck with your campaign, although I don't see it gaining much footing in a game where people don't want to give away what they've worked so hard to earn. 

 

Edit: Being very politically active in real life, I take things entirely too seriously, especially when a game played to escape the everyday politics of reality is mirrored in said game. My political passion will follow me wherever politics are in play.
