I rarely write about video games because frankly they aren’t worth writing about, but the recent “triangle strategy” just gets my goat. Ignoring the gameplay, the story and themes of this game are just pablum making it unplayable. It’s like I’m being forcefed hg wells’ suicide note just to be able to play more twee grid-based strategy. Why do these stories keep being made?
Like Chesterton said, “what is wrong with the world is that no one asks what is right.” Like Chesterton also said, “reformers are usually right about what is wrong but always wrong about what is right.”
So what is right? Meekness! Lack of meekness is what is wrong with the world. Meekness is to do what you ought to. Be loud when you need to be loud, but no more. Be silent when you need to be silent, but no more. Be angry when you need to and fight only enough to neutralize the threat, then no more.
What is wrong? That's going to take longer to explain!
I was recently looking through an article against "euthanasia" on an english online newspaper and the comments were near hundreds of posts of the most horrible demon-spawn to ever walk the earth (baby boomers and their ilk) boasting of suicide. I cannot post there but I can talk here on the topic.
There are few things I truly dislike more than hypocrites, and one of them is when you have to purposely stupefy yourself to make the hypocrisy work. This is one of those days.
So I recently came into contact with a "transgressive left" video game "reviewer" who moonlights as a psuedointellectualist and amateur pornographer. I was banned from his site but not before he openly edited my messages to not only hide what I said but also to attack me. Here I seek to speak without a petty tyrant breathing down my neck.
