Capsuleer Declaration of Independence

When in the course of high-sec events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the associations which have connected them to another, and to assume the powers of New Eden, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of the Universe and of Bob entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of capsuleers requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to disassociate.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all capsuleers are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Mining, Missioning, and the Pursuit of a career in Hauling. That to secure these rights, corporations and alliances are instituted among Pilots, deriving their just powers from the consent of the taxed.  That whenever any form of tax or laws becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the Capsuleers to alter or abolish it, and to institute new forms of associations, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. The history of the Goons, Miniluv and CODE is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations. All having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over various regions of New Eden.  To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid galaxy.
  • The enactment of taxation (permits) on Mining.
  • The enactment of taxation (permits) on Missioning.
  • The enactment of taxation (permits) on Hauling.
  • The enactment of taxation (permits) on Travel.
  • The hostile camping of high-sec gates and the sending of swarms of thugs to harass capsuleers and eat out their substance.
  • For Trials by Blog and Bonus Rooms for pretended and fabricated offenses.
  • For waging open war against Capsuleers.
  • For plundering the high-sec trade lanes, ravaging the ore and ice belts, and destroying the lives of untold clones.
  • For the hiring of mercenaries to compleat the works of death and extortion, desolation and tyranny, under circumstances of Cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages.
  • For turning our fellow Capsuleers into informants, to become executioners of their corp mates and Brethren.
We, therefore, the Miners, Missioners and Haulers of New Eden, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the Galaxy for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good Capsuleers of New Eden, solemnly publish and declare, that we are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent from 'permits'.  And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of the Welp God, we mutually pledge to each other our Clones, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

Criminal Welp Weekend

As militia members are aware, the Goon sponsored 'Burn Amarr' was a hubristic goonie act of bravado, marketing failure, and just a normal weekend for the Madirmilire and Niarja trade-pipe systems.

The only thing unusual was the thousands of cheap, fail-fit T1 catalysts employed by the seemingly bankrupt Goonswarm, who relied on sheer brute force numbers, rather than quality, to commit criminal acts.

For all the spectators that showed up, entertainment was provided by second and third string bumpers of suspicious quality, and goons who still are learning about optimal range.  ( a special shout-out to the fail-gank Tornado. )

The security status of Amarr,  Ashab and other high security systems proved too difficult for the cheap Goon crapalyst fleet to overcome. Desperate to avoid a PR disaster of "Fail Burn", the goonies turned instead to the more favorable criminal hunting grounds of the trade-pipe of Madirmilire and Niarja, and hoped no one would notice the event venue had changed.  Their dreams of overthrowing the Empress in Amarr was abandoned as goonie pride was now at stake.

What was abundantly clear, was the goonie hostility to any pilot who tried to interfere with this major Goon PVE event of the year.  Freighter ganking is all about racing the clock, to tip over "space cows" before the PVE police show up to prevent it.  The real pilots who show up to interrupt their space game against the police bots are met with an unusual amount of anger and resentment, expressed in the forms of taunts and jeers practiced in elementary schools everywhere.  And as the FCs learned of the unauthorized live Twitch streams, It can be said that one side had a hearty good laugh.

Goon line members were treated to such thrills as:

  • counting to 3 for undock, with mixed and hilarious results 
  • pressing F1.  One Key. Best Key!
  • riding the red fleet short-bus for a handful of minutes the entire weekend
  • spending the remaining scores of hours station-tanked against CONCORD. Grr!
  • sperging local with all their free time to combat their other PVE nemesis - boredom
  • their choice of Goonie Twitch streams in 2 different flavors - 15 minute delay or Live stream.  ( you're welcome, AG Intel! )

Of special note, militia member Brad Neece fitted a 'Mad Stabber' and bumped freighters right before criminal blob warp-ins.  This caused the goonie FCs so much gastric distress, that Brad received many [favorable] mentions on the twitch streams.

Also of valiant mention, militia member bigbud skunkafella remembered he had received a free Raven that was gathering dust in the hanger.  And in the waning hours of this criminal field trip to High Sec space, decided that the Welp Gods needed a smartbombing sacrifice to make up for the sorry state of 'Burn Amarr'. Well done, sir! 56 kill-mails were earned against the criminal blob and over 100 million ISK was paid in bounties to bigbud.  And the few score of kill rights were enjoyed by all.

Everyone can rest assured, that Amarr and the Empress have nothing to fear from the Goons, or the pretender to the throne: seventh-clone yet first-of-his-pants.

UPDATE:
On a certain unnamed goon site, the Goons are claiming victory, that "Amarr lay in ashes" and that the total ISK destroyed was over 800 Billion, the biggest year yet. To accomplish this accounting trick, they openly admit they are combining the numbers from all surrounding systems, including the Mad-Niarja trade pipe, PLUS the CODE operation in Uedama that had been running the week prior and the weekend concurrently.  They also admit that a certain "Dickbutt" who stole 250 Billion ISK from Miniluv, had returned 150 Billion, and paid 20 Billion to CODE in order to join and return to gangland-style ganking... because he was bored yet again.  

So it can be said that the 3 day "Burn Amarr" and week long operation "Distress in Uedama" was bought and paid for by a clone who is bored beyond measure.

Burn Amarr was an unquestionable failure as the loss numbers are below previous years, undoubtedly     a result of the bargain-basement ships the Goons fielded, and the goonie focus on comic-spectacle as opposed to results.

The separate- and nowhere near the Empress or Amarrian space - CODE operation in Uedama generated more ISK loss with better quality ships and far fewer criminal numbers, but lasted twice as long.

One can imagine the goonie marketing and branding department furiously ship-spinning the numbers to turn their "Fail Burn" into something "better than average".  Perhaps they are considering adding the weekend Hek numbers as well?

Upcoming events - June 2015


Burn Amarr
The announced, then sheepishly canceled, then red-faced rescheduled, and greatly mocked Goon event is rumored to be back on for the dates of June 19th through June 22nd .

Haulers should avoid this and all surrounding systems for the duration of this criminal event

Militia Members, and members of the anti-ganking community should stock up on fleet doctrine ships and modules and reposition their medical clones.

The good citizens of New Eden must prepare to ensure Justice is applied, to provide deterrence and mitigation of crime, and the sanctioning of those who violate high sec laws with criminal penalties and rehabilitation efforts - preferably with explosions and electronic warfare.

Independence Day Contest - July
The High Sec Militia is hosting another contest next month.  Stay tuned for details.

All Reps on Justice

The High Sec Militia has issued a special commendation award for one of its ranking members - Corporal Saber Ding - for valorous service in the line of duty.

In Sivala, a space lane beggar - Siegfried Cohenberg - was harassing and bumping an Orca and demanding ISK in return for leaving the Orca alone.  

Siegfried, having begged and pleaded his case of poverty, and seeing he was receiving no sympathy, turned instead to his only slightly more intelligent alt - Facebookina McHashtags vonInstagram.

Facebookina was flying an Atron and still feeling pretty clever for mashing random words together for her name.   She convo'ed the Orca pilot with offers of "help" to web the Orca to safety.

Unfortunately, the Orca pilot was simply naive or thought the request was an advertisement to "Double your ISK" and accepted the duel challenge.  

Facebookina/Siegfried, now feeling twice as clever though still feeling the sting of poverty and space rejection, began the attack against the Orca... in an Atron.

Calls for assistance went out on the AG channels and militia members responded.  Due to the limited engagement and ceaseless bumping, the options for rescue were extremely limited.

Fortunately, the Orca was fitted with drones and rep modules with cap boosters.   Corporal Saber Ding ferried supplies of cap boosters to the Orca, and  his colleagues ran legally suspect rep missions.

The battle raged for over 2 hours.  Corporal Saber Ding ran a logistical lifeline of support to the Orca until a friend of the pilot showed up and took over.

Frustrated, impatient and feeling the impending signals of a terrible conclusion to a lunch of space burritos with Serpentis sauce, the space lane beggar Siegfried called in a gank fleet to finish the job.

The first gank attempt failed, due to the noble sacrifice of a suicide Exequror repping valiantly to the bitter end.  The second gank attempt ended the Orca's service as a hauling vehicle.

The High Sec Militia takes this opportunity to commend and reward Corporal Saber Ding for his selfless and courageous acts.

Also noted for on the field actions are Galphii, Hae Joo Chang, Jonathan Chieves and Clancy Davis.

The Militia also takes this time to remind haulers to be informed about the beggars and criminals who loiter on the trade lanes, and to never accept duels from pilots you do not know.

The ISK and pod you save, may well be your own.

Criminal ALOD of June 4 2015

The criminal mind is sometimes a mysterious thing.

What drives clones toward anti-social and self-destructive behavior?  What irrational thought seizes the mind and body, spasmodically enacting random space violence?  Was it temporary insanity?  Was it hallucinations of space bee attacks?  Was he watching a football game on the Concord Billboard, and mashed the fire button after an opposing goal? Did he just learn Burn Amarr was canceled, and it was simply about market manipulation and not any lolz, and 'Dickbutt' was to blame for bankrupting Miniluv?

The good thing is militia members only need to apply ECM first, and ask questions later.

The penetrating hum of ECM calms the criminal mind, allowing the ganker to well consider his ill-conceived actions.

As the criminal awaits the embrace of the vast, searing cold and infinite reach of space, the militia member muses that Space and Justice have a lot in common.

Goal!?!   Motherf@#%$%#
