Hmm.. you might be right. I haven´t seen much US intervention here since the lampshade event.

Oh sorry... I was busy writing my Congressman to withdraw my objection to the The Hague Invasion Clause. http://electro-music.com/forum/topic-7418.html

Suddenly, it doesn't seem like such a bad idea.

If only.

Did you ever play Civ?

I don't like the last one because you can't sponsor terorism anymore but it basically covers all of this.


Nope, never played it. I should?

Well, it covers basically all aspects of world politics in a extremely neutral tone that makes it itself a very powerfull political statement.

Sponsoring terrorism or sending propaganda is just another move; Coporate Democracy just another form of government. Instead of military units you can also deploy business-men.

Nothing new for you, I'm sure, but quite different from most strategy games where you can only conquer using straight warfare. This game involves a LOT more but it's all about power and controll so the inclusion of many features taht aren't normally asociated with that is quite interesting.

Hmm, this part of the country could have a few meters of water probably .... still it's not nice of you to want to have millions drowned for one person expressing opinions here. I must say that I read them with interest Laughing

Personally I'd rather be (un)liberated by the tommies than by the commies. But I do share some negativeness with kassen over american culture. Then again, I guess most people on this forum would, including the americans (at least that's what I think I've been reading here more than once). Also I do think that some level of communism would be a good thing for world, but I wouldn't need the gulags for sure - I think there will be more here who could agree with that one. Well the current influence of big companies and big money on the world is scaring the hell out of me.

I think this discussion touches some of those points, hence the interest. Still the fanatism in it, or me perceiving it as such. seems to go nowhere, and is scaring me somewhat.

Hmm, that was a bit more that 30 seconds, still not enough though Very Happy

Shocked me?

I mentioned the christian approach, didn´t I.
We´ll let Capitalist Texas Jesus rid the world of the poor, the dutch and the other guys. No need for exploding fertilizer trucks.
Shocked

The water is rising! Hallelujah!

The only ones who understand norwegian humour are the Italians.

Do you feel like you need to be liberated?
How long have you felt this way?

Please take a look at these Rorschach tests while I fetch another single malt.
