    I’m glad you brought up the fact that this isn’t just about muh vidya. I’ve been calling myself a geek apostate for awhile now, trying to stay away from video games, fan and pop culture, because it is largely a waste of time, without the mental and spiritual nutrition of high or even middle culture. However, this whole incident is a microcosm of what has happened across all fields of art and media.

    High culture is at the mercy of academia, and cliches who don’t have any real life experience outside of Manhattan or gentrified areas of Brooklyn. Middle culture basically panders to single, upper class women, who live in urban areas (Tito Purdue talks about this in his speech at the H.L Mencken Club). To give you an idea of how bad it is, T.V series like “Breaking Bad” and “Game of Thrones” have filled the void that middle brow fiction used to occupy. TELEVISION has overtaken books as the go-to cultural product amongst white and brighter blue collars.

    Are we getting dumber, or have the creators and cultural industries just gone too far up their own ass for most people? Probably a feedback loop honestly.

    u mad bro?

    Do your best not to be. I know that you read (or have read) Anonymous Conservative’s blog, so you should know he says is that you can’t escalate emotionally against narcissists or else they’ll take it as a sign that they are in control. The scope of this scandal is getting to the point where regular people are starting to care about it, and are starting to see the cracks in the SJW facade.

    Stay calm and don’t feed their egos. The SJW movement is very much poised to collapse, however long it takes.
