Apathy and Voting

Want to start your Monday with the sadness of ineffectual activism? (slHTML5) Apathy attempts to simulate social networking (not in a bad way) and activism in bicameral politics.

Unsubscribe from the email list, vote YELLOW and work to expose the stuffed shirts' misdeeds.

A lot of the games featured on Mefi today I found earlier via freeindiegam.es, by like a day or so.

In an interview, the guy behind horse_ebooks said he checks it every now and again. I'd make a post about it the site but I'm a bit too close to the blog's management.

I couldn't care less what the horse_ebooks guy thinks, but freeindiegam.es reminds me of the good ol' days of Lore Sjoberg's Little Fluffy Industries.

If a country/the world is to be saved it's not going to be through Facebook. Things really only have an influence there if they're grossly obvious things, like toppling dictators in the Arab Spring, or SOPA. Otherwise the two sides are too even.

What needs to happen is for people to actually think through their differences. For them to stop thinking of changing their mind as being defeated in some way. Of realizing that it's folly to accept whatever beliefs one was handed by one's environment a priori. If such attitudes could become widespread, and masses of people could actually be brought to see that many things that seem obvious at first may not be true, then it might be possible that things could change for the better. People should try to distrust obvious things.

Tripped over it on RPS earlier.

Isn't it largely the Koch brothers and Fox News "playing something different" though?

I wanted to play it, but couldn't be bothered.
