Like... the whole thing that's going on right now?
I mean... I do have the politics section filtered out, so those threads don't show up for me. Apparently there is a little bit of it going on there. But is that fair? Is it fair to consider racism a political debate? I don't think it is. Racism is wrong. Common sense. It shouldn't be a matter of political opinion, it's something everyone should agree on, but that is quite clearly not the case.
There's people mad at Sony for postponing their PS5 showcase, I've seen it here and elsewhere. People trying to push the agenda around saying crap like "all lives matter" or "what about the vandalism" or whatever.
Honestly, fuck that. I'm really sad and angry at the current state of the world. Human society as a whole right now is in the worst place it's been for a long time, certainly for all my lifetime, so it's no wonder I feel this bad about it. It's not just about the US, either, anyone outside of it knows that. Everywhere in the world there's people suffering and dying because of assholes who don't give a flying fuck about anyone else. Maybe it's unfair to criticize it that way now, because to some extent that's always happened, especially in underdeveloped countries as those are used by the rich as a stepping stone for capitalism to "work". But today, this kind of stuff is happening everywhere, and often in disgustingly blatant fashion. It's not some cop killing a black person in some back alley with no one watching, it's in plain daylight. It's not political leaders trying to keep the economy running at the cost of lives from behind the scenes, it's them directly telling people to ignore the pandemic because the economy is more important than their lives.
It's too much, way too much. I can't endure this much shit and yeah I gotta vent somewhere. I don't know if other people here feel the same way, probably not, people want VGC to be an "escape" but right now there is no escaping the fucked up reality we live in.
