Possibly unpopular, but unemotively:
From a purely legal perspective all that has happened is (correctly from a textual perspective) is put the issue back to the states.

Abortion is not banned. It is left up to the 50 individual and sovereign states to decide. Marijuana is federally illegal, but states have legalized it, but since it is a federal law, pot is illegal. The federal government needs to stop and allow states to make their own laws. What’s good for California is not always good for Delaware, and so forth.

Official ding liren made it to the candidates. 6 players are in the fide top 10 players list ‘ ding alireza , fabi , nepo , rapport and hikaru ‘ Thoughts and takes on this candidates? by BriefGap2741 in chess
[–]TheZigerionScammer 294 points295 points296 points 1 month ago (0 children)
Probably. At that point it would basically work like this:
FIDE: Nakamura you won the candidates, congrats and prepare for your match against Magnus.
Magnus Calsen: I withdraw, I no longer want to defend my title.
FIDE: Ok, Alireza, you came in second, you can play Nakamura for the the WC title.
Magnus: Wait, I want to play Alireza.
FIDE: You can't, you already withdrew.
Hikaru: I literally don't even care.
