    Default Socialism and the police state

    I have to watch my words now. I have to watch what I say. I have to be careful what I say in these forums, especially if I am red flagged.
    Interesting little microcosm this forum community is without any real repercussions to the real World.
    It is like this forum is evil, but not, but is, but refuses to be good and also refuses to be a team, but pick on the few and point fingers at the few and thrives on it and is drunk with power and loves to bully them at the same time. And also just cherry picks words and does not read the whole post and makes stupid assumptions without reading the whole and looks for key words arrogantly. This is socialism nazi garbage.

    then why post stuff like this?

    These forums are privately run. Turbine has the right t opolice them as they see fit. Its got nothing to do with socialism or police states.

    Hi,

    This is a little obscure, but it sounds like your nose is out of joint about being held back from expressing your opinions on a video game forum run by a company in a first world country.

    The comparison between that situation and the real difficulties of people who live or have lived in situations of real world political oppression is ridiculous, odious, and disrespectful. It does you no credit.

    Grow up and find some better way to spend your time than complaining about meaningless nonsense. If you are really worried about the state of politics in the world, get involved and try to make things right. If not, go back to playing your game.

    Thanks.

    Got to love people throwing around words like nazi or socialism without having a clue what they actually mean.

    lol, I cannot say, I am not allowed as the one is picking on me atm and does need to stop please.

    I have something smart to say, I am also the best reference when it comes to this game, for I care about this game. With that being said, if I say something negative, it is positive for the long term.

    Actually, its capitalist, democratic, and supposedly "free" countries which result in those characteristics becoming socially acceptable. In the sorts of extreme left/right societies you cite you wouldn't be allowed to behave the way you are describing in the first place because those societies are *all* about everyone working to the common good at the expense of personal freedom - the very opposite of what is enshrined in the US constitution/bill of rights or the EU human rights act.All that said - turbine's private forum, turbine's private rules. Don't like it, don't come here, or petition sensible and rationally for change.

    Also - it really is impossible to be both a nazi and a socialist.

    Also also, I don't think the word socialist means what you and half of America seem to think it means. There is a disturbing tendency to act like Socialist = Communist, which is a bit like saying "being a Christian means you want to be nailed to a tree because this one guy got told by his dad it was a good idea". It is certainly very dangerous to make the equivalence, just as it is dangerous to boil things down to 'capitalism = good'. It makes you blind to nuanced alternatives, and blind to problems in your political viewpoint of choice. Oversimplifying is how politicians get you. Don't let them get you.

    Don't ape those elected idiots who like to twist perfectly innocent words to mean something else to further their own ends, all you do is help them.

    The name nazi stands for The National Socialist German Workers Party. You can go off on your theories about what is really possible... just know that your theories fail every time they are tried in the real world.
