Guess I should blog somethin'.

Don't much feel like it, though... still feelin' pretty shit, all around.  What's really on my mind, I'm afraid - and I know you don't come to this video games blog for this - is what's going on in the States. So I wrote a bunch of stuff but... I guess I'm not the best person to talk about this shit.  This is not my wheelhouse.

It's horrifying, is what it is.  This is an active and conscious reversal of everything that did make America great.  Ideals of truth and freedom and a lack of religious persecution.

So let's muzzle the government agencies whose sole job is to research and distribute provable, scientific truth to the American people, and its government.  Let's trade in "alternative truths," and attack and discredit anyone who would dare point out our lies and falsehoods.  Let's strip away constitutional rights as defined by the Supreme Court.  Let's tell everyone that people who follow the faith of Islam are evil, sub-human enemies, and ban people of that specific faith from entering America, in the name of the 9/11 attacks.

Well, I mean, only people from these particular countries - y'know, the ones left destabilized and war-torn by our aggressive foreign policies - certainly not the countries the 9/11 highjackers came from, though!  I mean, Trump has business interests in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Lebanon - we can't bother them!

You're living in a fascist country.  Everything that made you great is being chopped up and sold off.  Everything that is good in you.  In the name of hatred.  And ignorance.  And fear.  And money - but only for the very few.  Only for those who are already very rich.

How can you stand it?  And what can you do?

  1. Though I do take exception to the idea we are now in a fascist state. It's a failing democratic republic. There are firewalls in place even a republican majority can't touch, that even trump's supreme court pick can't overrule.

    It ain't much, but it's there. Evidenced by the fun little constitutional crisis in all our airports. Even Mitch McConnell (look up power hungry in the dictionary...) is backing off his promise to kill the senate filibuster. Because he knows they won all this by a hair. Because he knows a 600,000 strong march on Washington the day after an inauguration isn't a fluke. Because he knows this worm will turn again. And hard.

    1. Okay not a fascist state quite yet, but they're already comin' for your Muslims. It's nice to see a lot of people standing up and saying "I don't think so, motherfucker."
