The Left is Beaten & Should Go Away
« on: October 09, 2017, 06:14:30 PM »
Just an observation: when Obama was in office, those of us who criticized him were able to point to specific policies that were disagreeable. Now that Trump is in office, those of us who criticize Trump can't seem to get past prejudgments about his character; how he is supposedly dumb and mean.

The reality of the matter is that consumer confidence is the highest it's ever been, the largest corporations are crying a river of blood over the competition that's developed as a result of Trump's policies, and the economy is finally working for the benefit of Americans again and not for the benefit of other countries.

Donald Trump will be a two-term president. Why? Because the left cannot stop him. I mean, the left has even begun to get its ass kicked on the culture war, so what makes anyone think, realistically, that they have a chance in 2020? They have nobody.

I wouldn't say the problem you ascribe to AR was ever specific to AR. It was specific to that whole full force community. GE had its share of problems as well. Those problems mostly concerned the ambitions of certain leaders in the GIA and GIN factions, which were never intended to be factions at all. GIA and GIN only became factions as a result of the internal power struggle that plagued GE since its inception.

A number of us survived what those outside of our circle considered to be our "demise". But I always remind people, GE was never a clan or an association because it was never a product of the galvanization of players who merely shared common interest in a game. It was, is, and always will be an idea, an idea founded in rebellion against the status quo.

Unfortunately, as game trends have shifted toward public servers rather than private hosting, as well as toward proactive policing by game developers and moderators, there has been less of a necessity for GE's cause. In many ways, you could say that we somewhat lost our air amidst the current trends, though not our ideals.

I see what you mean when you juxtapose the liberal Democrats and elitists of the likes of Apocalyptic Reign. They both endeared their respective facades more than they cared for any semblance of honesty about their methods. For them, it was never about what was true, but what could be proved.
