>>What about the FACT that those FPS videogames function as MASS-MURDER TRAINING, simulator, rewiring the brain to over-come our native resistance to kill our own species?
I’m 50 years old. I played D&D since I was 18. I played cRPGs since they were invented. I played FPS games since they were invented. I played MMORPG’s since they were invented. I’ve owned a lot of scary black guns since Reagan was President.
From everything I’ve heard about “reprogramming the brain” for the last 30 years, I should be a mass murderer. Haven’t killed anyone. Not even planning on it. Not even chomping at the bit to “get the revolution started” as many FReepers are.
The problem is: we coddle crazy people, we try to turn boys into girls, and we allow man-hating women to raise boys alone.
I understand what you are saying, sir. And I fully agree.
However, Grossman ain’t talking about you as an individual. but about a trans-individual phenomenon. He says those FPS games should be deactivated because they act as very strong force in our society — by producing POTENTIAL killers.
It’s (para)military training without the discipline, the context, the organization.
