i wish i managed to hunt out the latest iterations. the main problem people had with fallout 74 (i believe) was that the game did not provide npc story living characters. only dead audiotapes -- and not in a compelling way as bioshock managed to pull off. instead, the massive online multiplayer component was supposed to carry everything. a post-apocalyptic world, indeed.

i don't suppose anybody would go to war if they were leaving that behind / back home.

the people who go to war are more likely to be the vault hunters who don't have anything to lose.

that's the trouble with inequality.

the american dream (as i understand it from images or pictures like this and that)... is one of 'little boxes just the same'. equality.

i understand people look (e.g., compared to the slums in india) and see opulant wealth... but that is becoming more and more available to people all over. personal computers.

but the american dream was largely of people living in boxes, roughly the same. equality.

not this ideal of lording over your slums from your palace.

that's the difference, i do believe.

Trump... Went to Queens... Where he grew up.

Amongst the inequlity that is very very real (Pacific Islanders are hardest hit, here, and also those most likely to be without face masks in supermarkets)...

Slumdog millionare was a gameshow...

You don't hear of people working really hard and excelling in the school system. You hear of people bribing officials. Of busloads of kids being taken to their examinations. Of en masse cheating. Of corruption. Of caste system. Of horribly incompenent and indept professionals grubbing up the professional educational opportunitites and jobs and titles and wages.
