Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
This is what bugs me the most about that rhetoric - the modern era is what we make of it. The implication what we should all get on our knees for our coroprate masters because, whelp, that's just the way The Future has to be is a very dystopian way of thinking. Technology should be making our lives better, damn it, not forcing a race to the bottom.
Goddamn it. So, the LNP over there, and National here get to campaign on being "good for the budget", while parties like the Greens here get constant shit for how terrible they would be while proposing this that would actually work.
I really hate politics sometimes.
That isn't true, the party that wants to maybe keep the status quo is the extreme crazy nutter party with unworkable policies because that's what the papers told me.
