NF Policy on Illegality
I shouldn’t have to explain this to anyone more than once, but then there are a lot of things I shouldn’t have to be doing.
We do not have General Orders in the Northwest Front, since we are an idea and not an organization. Orders would imply organization, and give the impression that I am some sort of Fearless Leader, neither of which is the case. Nonetheless, please listen to what I have to say here.
The Northwest independence novels are fiction.
In real life no one associated with the Northwest Front is to engage in any illegal activity whatsoever. Don’t kill anything, don’t rob anything, don’t burn anything, don’t blow up anything, don’t destroy anything, don’t commit unnatural acts with anything. Don’t cheat on your taxes. Don’t even jaywalk or spit on the sidewalk. No illegal activity, of any kind. Zero. Zip. Nada. Niks. No way José. Not happening.
Under no circumstances whatsoever do I approve of anyone breaking the law. If someone creeps up to your side and whispers in your ear that I have approved or ordered any such thing, and then tries to inveigle you into committing a crime, that person is a law enforcement officer. And no, this is not “Harold has to say that in public to cover his ass.”
Let me repeat: DO NOT BREAK THE LAW.
Furthermore, if you absolutely must break the law, please refrain from sending me e-mails telling me all about it. This indicates to me that either your mother dropped you on your head when you were a child, or else you are a cop of some kind.
Are we crystal clear on this, now? Everybody on the same page? Good.
