The below quote applies to the rampant and systematic paranoia that we now see expressed by the authorities:

"The personality’s paranoia and mistrust of other people by focusing on other people’s failings is magnified into making others into threatening adversaries. Hence, history is full of the purges of Stalin, the paranoia of Nazi Germany, and the ravings of Gadhafi at the UN in 2009. Unfortunately, the paranoid person is actually in a hell realm which helps to justify the extreme measures they take to “protect themselves”." - Eckhart Tolle

Read this article and learn about the 'protections' that Beamer touts. This is socialism at work for you. Central planning propaganda bullshit that has done tremendous damage to the general health and welfare of the country. Don't believe the misleading lies of socialists and their childish idiotic logic! You are not protected. Be responsible for yourself. Be your own government.

Yeah FDR is one of the worst presidents in the history of this country. Sure he inherited a bad situation but his solution was a massive warfare/welfare state. It didn't work. I'm not talking about consumer protections which are a tiny part of the bigger picture here. FDR administration was a catastrophe.

He had a big part in creating the military industrial complex and the American global militarism that we still to this day can not end that wastes us trillions. Fuck consumer protections if that's the cost of it! A murderous empire that continuously starts wars under false pretenses and the countless millions of people who are dead from it.

Enjoy your international graveyards and enslavement to the corporate socialist elite. Consumer protecitons. LOL you think you're protected??! ?!hahahahahha

the New Deal, that awful piece of socialist bullcrap that was the government overstepping its bounds and creating a protected middle class!

That's propaganda rhetoric and bullshit that TND was good. TND was a massive waste of resources. The middle class wasn't created by central planning. New technologies did far more for creating wealth of the middle class. The grandstanding politicians just took credit for it just like they do for so many things that they slant as a good thing. If you believe politicians or even your professor on that, you are a fool.

The economy collapsed in 1929 because of catastrophic socialist policies. It was a massive bubble that could not sustain itself. Roughly speaking it all goes back to when the Fed was created in 1913. After creation, they created more reserve notes (fake money) than was actually out there and the market would not accept it. The house of cards collapsed that was the socialist Fed Reserve money system.

It wasn't too dissimilar from what happened in the 2000's up to today except that after the crash happened, this time the socialists who manage our economy didn't make it even worse by ruining crops, etc, to prop up prices. Instead this time the socialists just bailed out banks to prop up real estate prices. Socialists fight reality instead of work with it.

Socialism is the problem here. Touting the problem (socialism) AS the actual solution is idiotic.

You take away the smartphone from my nieces and they are downright depressed, they just sit there listlessly as if they don't know how to socialize outside of it. It's kind of scary how dependent people are on them.

I view it as an emotional/psychological dependance and/or addiction. There's also some societal conditioning involved.

i wouldn't exactly put shoes into that category. It would be difficult but the emotional detachment would be less severe but the physical discomfort would be greater obviously. Well some people are obsessed with shoes so that's a different thing. hah

From what I gather, Congressmen socialize much less often. And much less gets done.

I'm all for them getting less done! The Constitution was written to limit their power so they wouldn't get much done.

Public opinion shouldn't weigh heavily on a decision like this. Public opinion is often misinformed, flat-out wrong, and just becomes a popularity contest.

Yes this. TV news is, imo, a lot of misleading propaganda. So are other news sources.

Is this the best way to oppose this CISPA in disguise by using NN as a way to motivate opposition? I remember CISPA as being nearly universally despised but now that it's been given a new book cover with the 'security' title it's a whole new ball game?

If that is the case that's pretty lame if not out right a scaly thing to do. Especially since it seems this time they kind of expect most of the game to be made by the community.

Yeah I know what you mean.

This game looks focused on PC, unlike UT3 and GoW and I'm excited about it. They were an old-school PC focused studio and I think they can do it again. I would like to see more enthusiasm from the three lead devs in that interview, but I think the community is going to supply that in spades. I think they realize this, too. I think the direction they're going is great.

You change the subject and make broad wild strawman accusations because you know your initial point had no standing. This is not a case of limited government (you pulled that out of thin air).

Banks were never really deregulated. There's still tens of thousands of pages of new regulations added every year (here in the US). You're very wrong on that one. Sure the removal of Glass-stegal was a very bad idea but that wasn't what I'd call deregulation. I'd call it bad regulation.

So you gonna throw another accusational temper tantrum so as to stay on the offensive despite what you spout on these broad issues is nonsense?

How can they possibly justify that? Gotta love the 'small biz and less government' clowns always crowing on about private enterprise does it cheaper and better. Uh no.

I don't see how you can use a story like this to discredit 'less government' advocates considering this is a prime example of 'big government.' It's corporate socialism. Big private contracts are not 'small government.'

It _is_ a lot of money and I doubt much of it is nearly as necessary as they'd say and these big government programs are possibly unconstitutional. All that said, the private sector can do it in the first place and after what I've seen myself I'm sure the feds could not do it competently or in a reasonable time frame.

edit: oh, UK government ok let them get ripped off.

Reading the responses to the ARS article you would think none of these people had ever played a hard core game. Eve is hard core, Wildstar is just another themepark that is a shade more difficult than average.

Personally, I had enough cartoons in Wow. That turned me off right away to start with.

Even EVE is more accessible than Wildstar's endgame. The attunement process is a massive assrape. The dungeons are extremely punishing and require ideal class composition if you have any hope of beating the Silver medal requirement needed for attunement. If you're running a less than optimal class, your odds of getting attuned are extremely low unless your guild is willing to straight up carry your subpar DPS and lack of utility. And even then, you still have to be pretty good, because you cannot carry a complete potato through attunement. It's just too tightly tuned.

In all my years playing EVE I wasn't locked out of playing the game because of a difficulty curve. Sure, I had to do a bit of research on things, and the game is large in scope, but getting to the fun parts of EVE is a lot easier than getting to the fun parts of Wildstar.

I'd go so far as to say that unless you're playing with a guild that had top 100 worldwide progression in WoW, that you just shouldn't bother with Wildstar. You will have fun for a little while and then when you hit the brick fucking wall that is Silver Dungeons and realize you don't have anyone skilled enough to complete them playing with you, you will quit.

I'm in a guild with very skilled players (Top 20 US raiders in WoW, some with even higher experience than that), but since I'm not part of the clique, the skilled players or players with powerful classes are all having fun, and I'm fucking jumping around in the capital city.

Wow thanks for this insightful post on how the game works at higher levels (silver dungeons). Yeah I like hardcore but not one that forces me to guess the correct skills/class/race combination before allowing me to play the high level content. I guess a lot of people will level up multiple chars before getting it right..? I like hardcore, but sheesh. Glad I went withe ESO (half price) for the time being.

Who's got the bandwidth for 60 fps?

i do, but the bitrate on Youtube videos is crap.

+1 this. I hope they double the bitrate with the doubling of frame rate otherwise it will look awful. I have some doubts about that happening.
