Big Picture Show

There was once a time in my life where I cared about society’s problems. I felt a debate was worth it. And I should do my part and voice my opinion. However, through my twenties, I confirmed my suspicion that giving a shit about the big picture is a complete and utter waste of time.

I don’t care about drug use. I don’t care if athletes use steroids and their neck explodes. Not my mess to clean up. Feel free to legalize weed, crack, and meth. Not only will it bring us good entertainment on the morning news, it will let the species sort out the weak minded as they crash and burn harder and faster. If we want a real debate if evolution is real, I say, let’s witness it first-hand.

I don’t care about the privacy debate. If it means they get what they want, people will give information to the highest bidder or lowest cost alternative. Concerning Apple’s stance to refuse decryption of the iPhone of a dead terrorist: I don’t give a fuck. He’s dead. Justice has been served in the proper manner. He fought the law, and the law won. No further answers need to be.

The media and lawyers have convinced people that closure can only be achieved through a thorough understanding of the criminal mind. I don’t give a shit about the mind of a pedophile, a murderer, an arsonist, or anything else. In case you haven’t been tracking the news over the past thirty years, but this sad attempt at solving a bigger problem – preventing crime itself – is a complete waste of time. This attempt to understand, to know more, is worthless. Take a page from the old West: shoot first and ask questions later.

Real-Time Strategy Games

As part of my work on the comic book, I like to write out my thoughts in a separate location.

Real-Time Strategy Games

Here’s a genre politicians love. Real-Time Strategy pits a player in a position where they control one or dozens (possibly hundreds) of units in combat. This requires a great deal of focus, skill, and resource management; things that help make perfect little four-star generals. The kind of children conservatives love to breed.

You don’t hear many arguments against this; that’s because, usually, the little men that are controlled are seen from a top-view. You don’t see the graphic details of the people exploding. This is in direct correlation to when people support war, as long as it isn’t in their backyard; if they don’t see it, it doesn’t bother them.

You see, as long as a game teaches children how to be top military commanders, but not commandos, it’s okay; having control over others is a finer lesson than having control over ourselves.

Anyone who has played these types of games, especially online, understands there is a lot of cheating going on; parents and politicians don’t complain about this, either. Just like they complain about others cheating on their taxes, but they turn around and do it themselves.
