Ok, this is epic.

Why is the idea of having an all white cast so offensive then? The SJW's keep preaching about "Lol, we're not taking your video games away we just want diversity" except.....
they are trying to ban or suppress any game that refuses to be multicultural or feminist.

And it's not just White people. Are Japanese game developers not being discriminated right now?

RelaxedMuscle seems to have no problem pretending there are no minority gamers. that's pretty racist if you ask me.

also kind of bizarre to think tits would not appeal to anyone outside of your strawman. you know that lesbians and bisexuals are included in the LGBT alphabet? guess they need to be ignored cos RM knows that tits are a cis white man's game alone.

way to erase the desires of queer women of color. imagine erasing minority voices in your hobby in order to own some fictional white supremacist.

My wife and a couple friends were drinking some wine Sunday and went down the best/best supporting actors lists, talking about which ones were the hottest or simply attractive of unattractive. Naturally this discussion objectifying men and promoting unobtainable beauty had me literally shaking until I could find the courage to run from the room, until they asked me who I’d go gay for. As this made me feel like an honorary LGBTQ member, I felt safe again and promptly answered Brad Pitt. But it was a close call in bigotry in my own home no less

i mean these same pricks don't have a problem giving money to companies that have giant markets in China while they are literally holocausting ethnic minorities, not even a concern, so long as it involves woke super heroes virtue signalling.

it's like they are entirely full of shit.
Yeah they only want to be woke about things they don’t use so it doesn’t personally affect them, much like the outrage over video games they were never going to buy. But it’s just funny to still scream about boycotts when Chick-fil-A polled all those donations last year so it’s not even a thing anymore.

Marx didn't make any policy proposals. His whole thing was that it was the inevitable march of history to communism. He specifically bitches out other socialists for their refusal to accept this proven divine science to instead waste their time on things like labor laws or safety regulations or increasing voting rights. When none of that is necessary when the revolution and transition to communism comes and all is perfect forever thanks to the material forces of history.

Sometimes I don't know about these ResetERA.com "leftists" and "progressives" as it's like they aren't even really truly interested in the science of revolutionary social justice.

really concerned about China!

not the Coronovirus and the people it will injur or kill

not the Uighur prisoners who are having their bodies harvested for organs

but WHAT IF OUR FAVORITE CORPORATIONS MAKE LESS MONEY???

i wonder if it gets exhausting cheer-leading for genocide-friendly corporations all day long.

lol he didn't say 'withdrawl', he said the industry should be accepting of both political viewpoints.

then you acted like he said he "want politics out of their games."

then you attacked this argument he didn't make, telling him to "educate yourself".

this isn't even a discussion. just a dogpile of people saying "lol GAMERZ" on a message board about video games.

Era is just a platform for self serving toxicity masked as virtue signalling.
"educate yourself" is one of the most arrogant things you can say, but they say it so earnestly. As if the only reason people don't see things your way is because they don't understand a situation well enough.

Wrongthink! Don't come back here until you've consumed enough propaganda!

it's also dumb because he isn't quoting or summarizing anything, he's not referring to a statement, he isn't even telling them to read a certain book, he just brings up the name of an author. im assuming in their entire life's work this subject is covered at some point.

"just read everything by this person whose name i casually mentioned" lol wow some great advice here from a true scholar

I think the most astonishing thing from visiting this thread is how does a collection of so many people somehow evade psychiatric help? To have that many people in such obvious need of therapy and counseling, you’d figure one friend or family member would’ve took notice.

Why do you think they're constantly ostracizing others, rejecting their family members ("we're your family now"), whipping people into a fervor, and generally isolating their members from any and all sources of cognitive dissonance?

What you are saying is exactly what family members of cult victims say. "How did we not notice this?" and "why wouldn't they listen to us when we warned them?"

I am curious to learn more about Arendt. Good recommendation:

Political theory and philosophical system[edit]
While Arendt never developed a coherent political theory and her writing does not easily lend itself to categorization, the tradition of thought most closely identified with Arendt is that of civic republicanism, from Aristotle to Tocqueville. Her political concept is centered around active citizenship that emphasizes civic engagement and collective deliberation.[8] She believed that no matter how bad, government could never succeed in extinguishing human freedom, despite holding that modern societies frequently retreat from democratic freedom with its inherent disorder for the relative comfort of administrative bureaucracy. Her political legacy is her strong defense of freedom in the face of an increasingly less than free world.[30] She does not adhere to a single systematic philosophy, but rather spans a range of subjects covering totalitarianism, revolution, the nature of freedom and the faculties of thought and judgment.[6]

While she is best known for her work on "dark times",[ag] the nature of totalitarianism and evil, she imbued this with a spark of hope and confidence in the nature of mankind:[212]

They can't get help, because they refuse to be helped.

They created an echo chamber where they leak their own "truth" instead.

Jesus Christ, those bans. Flakey as fuck.
lol I didn't notice it until now but the thread was first temp-locked to review reports, but apparently they decided to make it permanent.

Doesn't this type of moderation invite trolls / bad actors / etc to visit any topic they don't like, derail it, which gets it shut down anyway due to "controversy"? That has been the troll modus operandi since my earliest days on the internet.

"Videogame forum" :messenger_weary::messenger_ok:

I don’t know how any of them feel like they’d go back there to post. It’s insufferable.

I was a member once and drew a line after the Holowka disgrace. Got myself a temp ban for sensibly being honest about the forum culture and then I requested they nuke my account. I can’t be associated with people like that.

it is extremely bizarre how few Black threads there are, given that this is Black History Month. you would think there would be daily missives about various black people throughout history and the things they have done. you would even think the only black centric thread, Black Community Culture, would have tons of posts. yet it gets maybe 1 or 2 pages updated per day.

for how supposedly woke the site is, they ignore black history and black culture almost entirely, in order to focus on mainstream (white) media. i think the truth is that a lot of black posters were kicked out or left, and that it's more of an allie friendly space than a POC friendly one.

Once again, they obsess over this idea that "no one wants minority characters" yet ignore Japanese games.

Japan is non-white and they arguably had a bigger share of the game market from the 1980s to the early 2000s. Were was the "White Supremacists" complaining to remove Japan from the game market?

Yet see my post at the top of the page and it's SJW's campaigning to ban Japanese games from being sold. Hypocrites much?

Some community threads are barely active (including those given special attention by the mods), and many users ask for Discord invites.

Of course, same thing happened with trans awareness month, most of Ree are just virtue signalling or acting oppressed as they go into thier little groups to be offended by every little thing while the mods protect those screetching groups.

The only black topics that get traction there are "x" while black"

That is pretty much what happened. Black users just got pissed off and left apart some small few.

Now they have a hidden "summit".

Slayven still however keeps informing everyone about obscure comic characters that nobody cares about, so he is helping the black community.

Most of the Discords I'm in have a core of active users who were banned from Ree or simply don't want to post there anymore due to the moderation. Hard to build communities when you risk getting banned every time you make a post outside of your community topic.

Some Discords were also disassociated with ERA (although some users still post there), due to what happened with Etika.

These people have no knowledge of history, confirmed.

This is a recurring topic in the history of humanity. When a bunch of people are allowed to become impossibly rich thanks to social circumstances and world economy, they will inevitably try and seize power over all. What’s happening with the uber-billionaires of today is exactly what happened in the age of Cesar and the reason why a republic like Rome became a one-man rule.

You have to be a special kind of fool to think that money and power can somehow be separated.
