Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
We need to get into the video game biz. Seriously. There's virtually no limit to how much propagandistic bullcrap gamers will swallow if it comes packaged with a nice interface, flashy graphics and a good storyline.

Even more insidiously, the basic, underlying logic of many, if not most, current games teaches some very wrong lessons: That infrastructure should be run for profit, that it's easier and cheaper to clean up pollution than to prevent it, that social spending is wasteful, that war is an easy, predictable, fun and profitable enterprise and a whole host of other Very Bad Ideas.
