Actually it’s the best way to make people not feel like you’re shoving them away, and to give them a chance to come into the light - which, given the main audience is teenagers, a lot of them will. Most of the pitiable creatures who use the term SJW and the like are not actually hardcore bigots, just kids being… Read more
Overwatch is political. Because everything is political. When you’re treated unfairly, calling for fairness is political. When you’re treated unkindly, calling for kindness is political. When you’re excluded, calling for inclusion is political. The only way to completely avoid “being political” is to already have… Read more
Everything is political to some degree. Design decisions are the results of deliberate choices made within a specific sociopolitical sphere by people with specific sociopolitical beliefs and values. Read more
Uhh, no. Maybe 10% of the time. 90%? No. Or do you believe that Sandy Hook was a false flag, 9/11 was an inside job, Comet Pizza is the center of an international pedophilia ring led by John Podesta and Hillary Clinton, and that aliens have landed?
I thank you for your observations. I know that there are people who do not see God in the childish way I described earlier in my statement. Who believe that we are not lords of the Earth but instead stewards and caretakers of the life that has been placed here. Who feel empathy and compassion for all the living things…
Actually, creationism just makes me laugh a bit, before shaking my head. Of all the things to latch on to - it just amazes me that people would rather have a “creator” to guide them than to have the knowledge that every moment of our existence has been bought and paid for with billions of years of effort of everything… Read more
I support you and your decision. I understand your choice and I also understand why others who are too eager to continue the witch hunt continue theirs. I don’t understand why people don’t understand your position other then looking elsewhere on the internet. People like those clamoring that you are supporting his… Read more
Hey, I just wanted to say: While I don’t agree with your viewpoints about how what Playtonic is doing is enough to warrant not buying their game, YOU have every right to do so because that’s your decision. Everyone here calling you a white supremacist, or an a**ole just for deciding not to buy the game is overreacting… Read more
Ah okay, I understand now. Sure, that’s a totally valid viewpoint to have re: Destiny at large. (For additional context on my end, despite my political views leaning left I actually think Destiny is a huge dick from back in his SC2 days.)
While I still think that’s a bit of a stretch to pull your support from the… Read more
I would like to remind everyone that this is not censorship and that Playtonic as a private business has the right to express itself as they see fit. If they do not wish to include voice work by a controversial figure in their video game that is well within their right. Jon’s free speech was not violated in any way…
It was Lost all over again. I wish they’d had the guts to end the show a half season earlier on nuked-Earth.
The point of relationships is to provide support and companionship. I.e., make your life better. If someone isn’t making my life better, they can GTFO. And the better I get at providing for my own needs, the less the chance most people have of improving my life any. So at a time in my life when I should be desperate… Read more
Kind of hard to get a lot of motivation to connect to people when nearly everyone today thinks you are the worst person in the world for having a single opinion on anything diverging from theirs.
Sadly, I agree with you. Better to be genuine and alone than an artificial social animal. I remember a time when I enjoyed the company of others and sought out group activities. But a lifetime of disappointment and realization that 99% of the people I thought were trustworthy turning out to be people with an angle… Read more
Yeah IV and Alpha Centauri are the two that have never been replicated for me. So many hours spent on those games....
