Op Ed

CNET Australia - Anders Breivik, video games and the militarisation of society.
Both critics and supporters of games and gaming, it seems, are unable or unwilling to address the big picture: that Western societies are undergoing a process of militarisation.

Militarisation is the social process through which societies are organised in ways that allow for the production of violence. According to the feminist writer Cynthia Enloe, militarisation describes a process through which individuals come to view militaristic ideas and military needs as being significant and the norm.

Both viewers and reporters of news papers and news media, it seems, are unable or unwilling to address the big picture: that Western news media are undergoing a process of retardation.

News hoaring is the social process through which news organizations are organized in ways that allow for the fringe to get airtime. According to the gamer Yosemite Sam, retardation describes a process through which individuals come to view the fringe ideas and actions as being significant and the norm.

Wow, "the gamer Yosemite Sam" is a goddammed prophet. I totally agree with his post. If people only realized how the media plays them like fiddles, pitting groups of people against others over stupid shit. And it works time and time again without fail.
