Forums - Politics Discussion - So, are we not gonna talk about this?

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.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Well the real protesters are trying to make the US a better place and the corona virus are preparing us if an even worse disease threatens us. Its not all bad

This is also an issue, yeah. But it's not necessarily the virus itself. Pandemics will happen. It's just how things work. But this is probably the first time we've had one this big since the globalization of capitalism, and as a result we have a lot of people trying to take advantage of the situation, which then causes the deaths of a lot of people. No case more obvious here, than the two leading countries in COVID-19 deaths - USA and Brazil - both having idiot presidents who take some time out of every single day to tell their population all about how the virus isn't that big of a deal and people should carry on with their lives normally because of the economy. Of course, it's beneficial for them, since they don't need to move their asses into a bus full of people and work full-time at a crowded place to rake in the cash.



''Saying crap as all lives matter''? So you are saying some lives are more valuable than others? God, these situation bring the worst on people...

The incopetent cop that killed that guy should be arrested and punished, I don't think there is any doubt about this. But I'm not supporting any protest that destroys a man's livelihood like the ones that ''Black Lives Matter'' are promoting right now. Or at least its members are causing. The irony in all this is that the same movement that is trying to save black lifes, is the same one that is ruining black lives, as many of the stores that have been vandalized are owned by black people. That's gold. Incredibly sad, but gold.

Both sides are at fault, and both sides should be punished. I don't see how much there is to be discussed.



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

There's already a topic devoted to it, and I'm pretty sure it's being discussed in the US politics topics.



2020 is just a cursed year, that's what my theory is. It's kinda crazy how so many things went to shit month after month.

But at the end of the day, just gotta sit back and ride it out since there will always be a glorious sexy waifu waiting at the end of the dark tunnel.
