The Gamergate political compass survey was pretty left dominated- not as much as it was libertarian dominated but maybe 3:1 ratio. Though of course that may not be relevant/ directly applicable for universities and the like where most students (by far) are militantly uninterested in university politics- and PC's methodology may not be wholly unbiased- it does suggest that GG at least has been push back from the left.

I've seen hardcore Randians score in the lower-left quadrant. It's quite biased.

 

Based purely on my observation of the "GG" crowd its made up of a younger generation of conservative types. (e.g. "I support the gays but stop shoving it in my face")

I think the meaning of "left" and "right" has become confused and distorted. To be blunt, I think a lot of GG people are right wing who think they're left wing due to a misunderstanding of what "left" and "right" is.

"Good thing I don't heal my characters or they'd be really hurt." Is not something I should ever be thinking.

^This.

 

Libertarians don't count as left-wing folks.

At least not the version of them that hijacked the term from socialists for some reason.

Noam is such a douche on so many levels, but at least he wants to clear out the confusion about what political terms actually mean.

Can I just say I hate Noam Chomsky discussions because there's at least enough controversy surrounding the man and enough scientific discoveries by the man that he at least warrants SOME respect and recognition and understanding of who he is and what he does, yet educating oneself about the man is difficult because he is by far the most painfully excruciatingly boring public speaker to listen to? Not hating either, cause he himself admits this.

He uses lots of big words, and that makes me feel smart. :)

 

Lol not really; I've never read his work.

More porn charity, this time to benefit a pornstar who was raped by some people who broke into her house.

 

Also rants about professional victims.

It is like the attempts at burns you get in CS in 99. That is the true tragedy of GG - poor insults.

Why has elegance found so little following? Elegance has the disadvantage that hard work is needed to achieve it and a good education to appreciate it. - Edsger Wybe Dijkstra

Link to the donations for Cytherea, gone up over 1k since the gamers got involved. Let's do more sea lions.

But somehow God ascended from the heavens and let a guy named **** WOLF do an episode of SVU that clearly showed how stupid this narrative is to begin with.

 

 

To be fair, Richard "****" Wolf is the guy who created Law and Order: SVU.

 

Wolf wrote films (like 1988's MASQUERADE), was a staff writer on HILL STREET BLUES and was a supervising producer on MIAMI VICE before he created the original LAW AND ORDER.  He's went on to create shows like MANN AND MACHINE, COLD JUSTICE, DEADLINE, CHICAGO FIRE, THE HUMAN FACTOR and PLAYERS.
