in any setting handled realistically, rape is going to be a part of any game. men who make adventuring or war their profession are just not going to have many scruples when that sort of thing comes up, and its inevitable that some member of the weaker sex will get put in a difficult situation.

so how does your group handle this? do you describe it? do you just cut scene and deal with the consequences? do you pretend it isn't a possible scenario at all? seems like the GM would be pulling punches if the threat at least wasn't present for a woman.

i once had a player (a man playing a female thief) get raped when she was caught breaking into a crooked judge's house. as he decided to do this alone w/o the party, it ended up being upsetting for him as the whole table was focused on it while they waited for the scene to cut back to them. he got royally upset with me, probably more upset than if i'd just killed his thief off. i thought that was silly.

>> No.11300988

Rape has never come up in any of my games for any reason; it has never been necessary to help create a "real" sense of immersion, it has never been necessary to highlight the grittiness or the horror of the setting, and it has never been needed as a way to enhance or expand the roleplaying experience. Were it to ever enter one of my games it would be handled with the sentence "so and so was assaulted and raped", and that would be the end of it. However, I cannot possibly imagine any situation in which it would be necessary to present it in-game as anything other than backstory.

Annoy the game master by derailing his plots utterly so that the rapist that did me becomes the center-point of a revenge scheme that toppled the entire city because I refused to help save it.

And I made sure the GM realized it after we had made certain the city was destroyed, because when the Paladin asked me why I used my skills to undercut the party's attempts at saving it, I told him, "The duke's son raped me. I raped his city."

The Paladin backed me.

Being a ca/tg/irl, I'd have to say I would prefer if rape was implied but never explicit and certainly never described. I would be pissed if it was just thrown out there, btw, this character is a prisoner of war RAEP TIEM!

HOWEVER! All of that being said... The most effective use of 'rape' in a game I have ever seen to this day? Only ever implied. A 'spirit' imprisoned with a demon. They are the only truly sentient people in this prison. Every time this demon is mentioned to the npc spirit, it gets obviously disturbed. Guess what happened?

What? I was never told, but I can say for certain, if I was that demon, -something- would have.

Remember, rape is not just male-on-female violence, though in our world it is sadly the most common kind. Everyone can be raped by anyone else, gender is a cosmetic factor.

TL:DR - Avoid Rape as a rule. Imply it to mature players only.

thats like saying that because the warrior doesn't want the dragon to breathe fire on him, it doesn't add to the game. its a threat, a danger, something you don't want to happen, like any other. its actually a great storytelling device because it lets you threaten the players w/o even involving HP or injuring them or setting up a blackmail mcguffin or w/e. nobody wants to be raped, but you don't even have to take their gear away or anything. instant kick-in-the-pants to the character's personality, too. nobody remains static after a rape.

as another ca/tg/irl, I'll have to concur that I generally accept that my characters get raped pretty consistently. It's not told to me, or implied even most of the time. I just know that if I'm ever capture by orcs, or sent to a prison, or taken by demons to be "off screen" for a while, I just assume that I've been raped.

That being said, it's still one of the hottest things in the world to me. The idea sends shivers down my spine.

In one adventure, trolls had crossed into the mortal world and were causing havoc. The paladin was going on about how we shouldn't kill them and just find a way to send them back. That they are just scared because they are in a foreign place.

They get to the village they were heading to.

Trolls have ransacked the place.

They burned all the men and children alive in a big pile.

The trolls surrounded the burning pile and were raping the surviving women, casually tossing them into the fire when they finished their "business".

We had a wonderful campaign where we entered an extremely religious city state. They didn't take a liking to our female tiefling bard one bit, she was stolen from us in the middle of the night and "punished" by the local priests/clerics. It was implied and the DM did go into detail, but it wasn't intended to be "hot" or "fetish fuel". She was mentally, physically and emotionally broken when we found we found her, and her character was the most bubbly and upbeat member of the party on any other day. My Paladin, who initially didn't like her due to how hyper she was, added to the fact that she was a gods damned tiefling, proceeded to go on the warpath. The party burned entire that town to the ground, and to this day fucks with that nation whenever we can.

If its handled in a matter that doesn't make it sound like a fetish, and gives the party something to fight for, its fine.

I'm fairly neutral towards the whole matter. Games can certainly go without, and explicit rape scenes do nothing but make it worse, but if it happens well, I'm okay with it.

My current character is a female. However, she is also a paladin and a supreme badass. I sorta half-expect someone to ever try it on her.

I deal with it in character, just as it should be dealt with. I've gotten a couple of characters killed when the GM realized that he wasn't going to have his jollies. One character went suicidal and killed herself, another was killed because she ripped open once of the rapist's face with her fignernails on a improved crit unarmed strike, and the latest - well, the city burned, destroying all his plots for the entire party so that he had to rewrite them. He might be gettign the idea that I'm smart enough to run his railroadin' rapefests into the ditches and set fire to them by now.

As a DM, its been a pretty consistent rule at any table I've run that rape may happen, but guess what? Not gonna talk about it, cause it's a game, for everybody, and we want to enjoy our damn time, not stare at each other awkwardly or get into shouting matches.

As a player, I'll admit, only played male characters so its never been brought up by any DM I've ever played under. But if it did happen, to anyone or myself? I collect my books and walk. Don't need that shit, dont want to hear about it, don't even want hints of it.

A female PC was raped once after being captured by some brigands, in the last campaign I played in. The player was angry, swore revenge, and then went and got it.

We had just gotten ourselves a ship and were docking in Luskan (Yeah, Forgotten Realms). When we arrived there came two men and charged us 200 gold for docking fee. No one was interested in paying that so according to our chaotic evil way I summoned a polarbear behind the men and told them to leave else they're getting mauled and thrown into the ocean.

After they hurry the fuck out of there, the real dock guards arrive and charge us 2 gold for docking fee. Our dwarf barbarian is furious and after I track the scammers he beats them nearly to death and then proceeds with putting one into the gallows at a square nearby. There he pulls downs his pants and rapes him in front of a cheering crowd. We then take the other scammer as our slave.

So my players, through an unfortunately-worded wish granted by an efreet, found themselves trapped in a layer of the abyss.

One place they come across is called "The Maternity Ward", a place were new demons are born.

In the maternity ward, millions of animated genitalia of all shapes, kinds, and sizes are constantly dumped into a massive pit. These disembodied genitalia then proceed to writhe around and rape each other in an orgy of flesh, sweat, blood, and sexual lubricant. The vaginas swell up as they are filled with seed, until they finally burst, giving birth to new demons. The newborn demons then gorge themselves on the penises and in the pit, as well as each other, until they grow strong enough to climb out.

The PC's were dropped into this pit.

"I saw Otto come stumble in with some sobbing young lass thrown over his shoulder - the spoils of war I suppose. He turned to me with a half-cocked smile on his face, and threw me a wink as if asking for my approval. I gave him a bland response, and Otto went on his way upstairs laughing. I personally found the whole prospect of such plunder to be distasteful, and instead would usually try to scrounge up some treasures or the best pickings of food before the rest of the men returned. Out of the corner of my eye I saw the Captain grimace. I imagine the Captain himself to actually be a type of romantic, as he always would rein in the men before such excess got out of hand. He knew it would be foolish to forbid it in entirety, but I suspect even he had his limits."

If you and your fellow PCs aren't raping the shit out of female NPCs at every opportunity that allows for it, you're doing it wrong. Few things add more depth than raping and traumatizing a previously sassy wench. Obviously you'll only want to save post-rape murder for the really unforgivable ones (cold female assassin for instance) to avoid shit getting too retarded, but it absolutely has to be there in some form. I mean if she's trying to fucking kill you, rape-murder is like the least you can do to her.

Motoko Kusanagi is straight. She even has a boyfriend in the original comic.

She performs some sexual "services" outside her normal job that involve linking cyberbrains, thus allowing each participant to feel what the others are feeling in addition to themselves. Unfortunately, this can only be done with same-sex participants (all-male-bodied participants or all-female-bodied participants). Having an opposite-sex participant causes intense and indescribable pain due to receiving sensory input for parts you don't have.

Motoko is in all likelihood bisexual, but this carries very little meaning in a setting where one can transfer from a male body to a female one as they wish.

In my personal opinion, a group that is mature enough to handle rape in a game wont include it.

The only time I have come across it was with an old GM way back when. One of the party members was off by herself and got jumped in an alleyway. The guy went into some sickening detail about it and made the player uncomfortable enough to leave the group. None of the rest of us were too impressed either.

At the time there was a serial rapist roaming around the college getto where the GM lived, and I, being the civic minded moral bastard I am, colluded with the rest of the party, and gave an anonymous tip to the police. Needless to say, they kicked in his door, tore his place appart looking for evidence and held him for a day or so accusing him of it until the DNA crap came back and didn't match him.

He was fucking pissed at us. Haven't played with him in years.

like I said.

straight, gay, bi, it doesn't matter in the GitS world. The Major doesn't really have a sexual orientation the same as she feels no real need to cover her body.

Why?

Her body is just a shell that houses her ghost. A person's ghost can be transferred to any body desired. Male, female, fuchikoma tank, doesn't matter. A body is just a physical container that can be bought and sold like any other product in the GitS world.

A fleshy body is no different. Install a cyberbrain into a vat-grown body and copy your ghost over and you now have an organic body to inhabit.

If the Major switched to a male body and had sex with a man, would that be homosexual? With a person's body no-longer being the only one they have, concepts such as sexual orientation and covering your body start to break down. I think that's what Shirow tries to get at with the sexuality in GitS.

It depends on how you categorize your separation of mind and body (that was kind of the whole point of the series). There's no definitive right or wrong answer to the hypotheticals you pose. However, as she has sex with people of both male and female personalities, in both male and female bodies, the Major is at least bi, but possibly tri- or quad-sexual. Definitely not straight, but like you said, the idea of sexuality in the GitS world is stretched so thin that the term would effectively lose all meaning.

Although, it is considered a crime, IIRC, to install your mind into military hardware, such as a tank.

And once again /tg/ fails to realize the continuum between Realism and Idealism.

Goddammit fa/tg/uys, get out of your basements and realize people are diverse. I for one am a total realist GM. I grew up in a med family so if you're dead I'll let you know how it smells. Some of my friends came back from Iraq (some didn't) and some of their dads are vietnam vets. It adds to the chaos and madness of slaughter. And if I do it right, it should make you angry and sick that war is actually happening. And damn near every girl I know has been raped or molested. This shit happens. Constantly. All around you. And some of us don't grow up sheltered and pretend like it isn't happening. It is. And I talk about it. In game and out.

But to each his own. If you don't like the Realism- the social commentary- I'm not the GM for you. Kindly and without regret GTFO. Go enjoy your "good vs. evil" fantasy game- because it is that- fantasy. But when I write- and when I host- the fantasy is a brutal simulation of the hells already here on earth. War. The Morgue. The Hospital. Prison. Your Uncle's cabin. And you will stare down the evil or you will falter, die, and leave of your own volition.

Right, so, there's your answer. It's only homosexual if both people were female at birth, and even then sketchy. Still, I figure it's the easiest method of selection, though I admit it might offend the transgender crowd, being as that can have a lot to do with self-identification as the opposite gender to your birth gender.

But I'm sticking to it for simplicity's sake. The whole thing is a rather pointless exercise for all the points you made - when your physical identity shifts as often as you can afford it to, sexual identity would be pretty meaningless.

More like transhumanism is inherently asexual. As bodies become redundant commodities, separate genders begin to meld into one androgynous gender. Once people in the GitS world no longer need bodies, existing purely in the internet, all concepts of gender cease to have meaning.

as for the little side example, say the man she was having sex with was originally born a woman but had the sexual identity of a man (as real transgendered people claim today). Rather than take hormones and go through the process of a sex change, she cyberized her brain and copied it to a male body. Is it still homosexual? Makes the gears in your head turn, and illustrates my point above.

Listen, I prefer an amount of realism to my games, as well, but to take it to that extreme? You're defeating the point of a 'game'. The idea of a game is that it provides you some fleeting, escapist distraction from the fact that life in this world is painful, brutal, and short. This world has enough bad shit in it, that I don't need to drag every aspect of it into the realm of my stories.

I'm not talking in any way about objectivity. Nowhere in my post did I even begin to mention it, past passively mentioning that you seem to be thinking in absolutes.

I'd try to explain it slower but it's in writing, so I can't.

When I said "you're missing the point", I was mainly referring to your post being entirely about how "realistic games with social commentary" should be, when the point that most people are making when it comes to this subject is that those types of games are a minority, rather than a majority (if not in general, then at the very least in this thread), so how you play them really doesn't matter to the types of relatively light fantasy and social commentary-less games we partake in. In other words, rape in the context of YOUR games has nothing to do with the discussion at hand.

Exactly, you don't have a clue and you're filling in the gaps and deciding "That's the only way it could have possibly went."

It's down to the group could have bitched him out if they felt he was in the wrong, and gotten him to possibly apologize to the girl. While he may have done something very stupid, everyone does at some point.

It was just cowardly and juvenile to go behind his back to the call the police, because the group was too chicken shit to confront a problem themselves. Or they could have simply left.

I dare you to find a psychologist that would agree this was a definitive symptom of a rapist. It was nothing less than a giant leap of uneducated logic.

A single person, within a transhumanist setting, can easily experience all four of these options. Given we have a specific word for female homosexuals [Lesbians, which must be a great frustration to natives of Lesbos], I think it's a fair thing to say that when all four can be equally chosen without any impediment, they can be considered distinct.

Whoever here said that rape should be implied rather than explicit, you've got the best idea and compromise here.

That said, you should only include as much detail on uncomfortable subjects as you and your party would be willing to listen to. Most people don't go into incredible, borderline insane detail of the body they just eviscerated.

Coughing blood. Thats fine. Trying to pull his guts back in. Fine. By this point people are thinking something is gritty, but killing is an accepted occupation for your adventurer. It is a fact of life. Rape on the other hand isn't. It may happen, but if it does then everyone who ever liked or loved the individual in question whom was raped will either try to or wish upon the rapist horrible things whilst not speaking of the shame itself. Personal preference doesn't factor into it -- it is not accepted by your culture and society as a player, so unless you wish to give a lesson showing insight into the predicament of one who has been raped, don't make it overly explicit.

Not necessarily - it could also be interpreted as "has four sexual preferences". Which as I've pointed out above is totally possible. We associate "bisexual" with "enjoys sex with both genders", when it could just as easily mean "enjoys sex both with the same and opposite gender". Of course, the chance for true gender change in our current society is pretty much nil, so we don't really have context for a person who enjoys sex with both genders from the position of either gender, because that *doesn't happen to people in the modern day*.

Well, actually, it probably is more or less accepted by your culture. Almost all successful empires solidified themselves by intermarriage. Who did they marry? The wives of the men they just killed and their virginal daughters. Do you think that was consentual? Hell no. Do you think it was even really marriage? Of course not. But it's how Antiquity and East Asia handled it. I'm pretty sure the same for India, but I'm not as certain. And likely true for Islamic spheres as well. Definitely true for the conquering of the Americas. And you'd be shocked and awed if you realized just how many white people are part African and how many black people are part white- though there was clearly more segregation there.

Settings shouldn't be handled 100% realistically. Realism helps with making a fantasy more believable, but you have to remember that at its core it is just that, fantasy.

Sure, with all the action going on (princesses getting kidnapped, PCs getting captured by evil dudes, PCs knocking some evil babe unconscious), realistically, rape would be pretty much inevitable. You have to decide if it's something that you want in your games.

If your players like it, then by all means. No one's actually getting hurt. I actually heard about a chick who insisted her character get raped as often as possible, which isn't all that surprising considering that rape is, by far, the favored fantasy of women. Again, note the word "fantasy" here.

If it makes your PCs uncomfortable, then don't do it. If you can pretend that people are able to shoot goddamn fireballs out of their hands or asses or whatever just by saying some strange words and gesticulating wildly, it's not that much of a stretch to pretend that a female that would realistically have been raped goes by without it happening.

You're portraying reality as a "hell", but it's not grimdark? Listen, I understand what you're getting at, kind of, but I really think that "radical realism" should be left to the news. Games are, by definition, a form of entertainment. If your games are so radically realistic that it recalls personal, intense memories of

>War. The Morgue. The Hospital. Prison. Your Uncle's cabin.

Guess what? You're not going to be entertained, you're going to be horrified. Does a game need to be good-vs-evil, go rescue the princess from the dragon herp derp? Of course not. Does it need to be so remarkably bleak that it becomes a horrorshow? Also no. Like you said, it's a continuum. Most sane, balanced human beings are going to pick somewhere in the middle. The fact that you hold up one of the far outliers as a pinnacle of success that makes you somehow better than us "basement dwellers" shows that you're a biased jackass.

You're right though on the fact that rape happened, and that not everyone was going to kill you for it. Hell, that is how warfare is waged in some parts of Africa today. It is a very effective but crude tool of warfare to remind an entire culture that their wives are going to give birth to your children. In Christendom too you'd often wed the wife of the man you killed. Why? Because it was one way of affirming your claim to his lands, or maybe you liked how his wife looked. But that's a little different from rape. Meanwhile, peasants had a mismatch of various injustices to face.

With all of that said, brutality is not always a part of war and many soldiers will be disgusted by rape. Some men took pride in it, others scorned them, and sometimes comrades even killed each other for an act they saw as shredding what little humanity they had left.

When it comes to things like this, it's better to err on the side of caution.

Even if you are portraying a gritty and brutal world in your games, there is no need to get explicit about something like rape. There are other ways to evoke the right kind of mood.

You rarely know everything about your players.

Someone in your group may very well have been sexually abused or victimized in some way, or someone they know might have been, or they could have any any number of reasons why something like a Rape Scene would make them very uncomfortable.

Fuck you, buddy. If you knew shit about psychology, you'd know the DSM4 is about as useful to a psychologist as a dictionary is to an author. It's a reference book, not a stat sheet of all known psychological phenomena.

And like I said, victims are not usually broken forever, and frequently, they are not broken for even a little while. But it is, assuredly, very psychologically damaging, like losing a spouse or very close relative, or experiencing a traumatic injury in a car crash. It is not usually something that happens and is immediately dusted off.

Most will deal with it. A fair few instances of that "rape" won't be aggravated either, as some people would classify being really uncomfortable and having sex with someone they didn't want to as rape. By that definition I've been raped (as a healthy young male).

But it comes up when physical contact happens. I'm still working to repair the damage that several assholes before me have done. It showed up at first in flinching a little, but thinking this is all that sex is supposed to be. It boils down to breaking a person's ability to enjoy intimate physical contact.

This is probably why I wouldn't bring rape or the like into my games. I'm all for grittiness to a certain extent, but if there was rape scene it would be Fade to Black or otherwise implied.

Why take the chance of upsetting someone when you don't need to? A good GM will find other ways to create the right mood.

Entertainment doesn't have to be comfortable- doesn't have to be happy happy joy joy. Doesn't have to be triumphant or clean or safe.

Another reason? Using vivid graphic displays of violence and cruelty can evoke empathy on a previously unexperienced level without actually having to go through with shit. I don't think my players would understand racism quite as well if I didn't subtly treat them like shit when they left their homeland. Many of you glorify war. I teach players there's no glory in slaughter- necessity at best- but more often than not political. And I have no doubt you allow for this much intrigue in your middle ground. But you will not have the same visceral disgust in your players. They will not react with the same fury. You think you can act? When was the last time you got your heart rate up? Got into a shouting match with an NPC? Truly got mad- but in game? When was the last time it was that real for you? When was the last time you were there? When was the last time you cried for somebody who never existed...

Ok- that last bit was sickeningly litcrit even for me. But the point is there IS a point to realism. There is a reason people do it. It's not LOL GRIMDARK. Again- it's the reason some people prefer realistic literature, and others prefer idealistic literature. And furthermore realists are not uncommon. In fact they're dominant in mainstream literature. The thing is /tg/ is mostly written by fantasy literature- but not all of it. These are role playing games. Some people prefer roles they cannot possibly relate with. I try to give players a different kind of experience than dice and light hearted laughs. The same kind of experience I try to give as a (admittedly unsuccessful) writer. And I try to have discourse as well- stimulation- not escapism.

And it's fine- sort of- if you want escapism. It's certainly acceptable as a consumer hobby. The only bound in which it may be unacceptable is in your complacency with world atrocity. But that's liberal guilt- not /tg/ related. And I don't mean to pick a fight with you about that, even if I NERDRAGE about it. Mostly I'm just out to show there is a purpose to sickening realism. It probably just doesn't show up as much in a group of people dedicated to escapism/fantasy/idealism literary arts.

To be perfectly honest I have been a bit perplexed about one thing.

Now I consider myself to be a rather mature roleplayer, but I am still not sure what the rest of the groups opinion on the matter may be, I guess I should ask them, and it's also not me GMing this time around.

Shadowrun campaign I am in, I have a Troll with highly augmented cyberlimbs and around 0,8 essence left (he simply is almost more machine than human).
However, in SR being a Troll is enough to become a social outcast, and considering how the Troll gang was more or less eliminated, he is alone and lives on the streets.
And to add to that, being heavily cybered is enough to make anyone a social outcast and raise eyebrows the wrong way, and for a troll to be heavily cybered, that's an attention grabber.

Anyway, thing is, this Troll is an excellent Wrestler, and has trained within the wrestling martial art since childhood, and with his highly augmented and optimized body is he is more capable of it than ever.
I have however come to the conclusion that being a troll and all and heavily cybered on that being labled as "freak", I wonder what he would do when while being ont op of a women having subdued her.
Considering how he wrestles down everyone whenever there's combat, he would most likely take down many females as well, and considering how it most likely is the only way he would get any, like ever (outside of VR) I guess he would do it, perhaps often even considering how easy rape should be for him.
I mean this guy can now after all the augmentations take a gun shot at his face and wrestle with dragons to some degree, subduing females should be no problem.

The circumstances in which rape would be appropriate for the tone and add to the narrative of an RPG are rather limited.

90% of the time, if the GM or a player initiated a rape scene, pic would be my face. I'd imagine chances are good that they're just faggoty fetishists, likely in denial, like OP.

That said, it's not impossible for a rape scene to be useful and interesting, but as a story element its quite a sledgehammer. Way overkill almost all the time, and will never fit well in certain genres (heroic fantasy) common to the hobby. Not to mention not all players nor GMs could handle it maturely and without being disturbed.

Then it isn't entertainment anymore. An ulterior design has come into play.

And don't jump to conclusion. I'm not the guy you're arguing with but I'm not an isolated basement dweller either. My father is old enough to have remembered the war (he sometimes sings a happy little ditty about "pissing in a germans eye" every now and then) and most of my family except the Australian side have served in the army and navy. At least one threw himself in front of a train. One of my cousins got locked up in a Morrocan prison for several years for smuggling. Meanwhile, my girlfriend is a Russian expatriot. I don't have to explain in detail what that entails.

Not all /tg/er who oppose explicit realism in their games are sheltered rich and middleclass kids.

As for why people don't support war anymore? You'll have to convince them that it is theirs. People don't think that they have any stake in war anymore, thus they don't feel as strong as a connection with those going to fight. War is "bad" now, a mistake.

But you're once again assuming that all things which are not "The world sucks, everything sucks always forever, *unnecessarily graphic violent emotion*, gut-wrenching drama" is automatically "happy happy joy joy". For a guy who uses the term continuum so much, you really seem to have no fucking concept of the idea. Guess what? Most people don't want "visceral reactions" and genuine fury at their games. Does it have to be "triumphant and clean and safe"? No, but there are fucking shades of everything.

the confusion stems from the fact that I'm trying to make 2 points.

Point 1: There is a continuum that is acceptable. The opposite of realism is not happy happy joy joy. I am an EXTREME realist, and I accept that. I am not trying ot say there is no reason to be idealist, or to even have no desire to be a moderate realist instead of an extreme one. I am merely explaining the advantages of the realist end of the spectrum, particularly from the vantage point of an extreme realist.

Point 2: I am a politically enraged fucker. I am enraged that nobody gives a fuck. I am enraged that everyone has forgotten, or if they are aware and do nothing that is even more unforgivable. I am enraged that people do try to hide from what is happening because it upsets thier happy lives (people do this, even if you claim you don't- I'm in no position to say). And the fact that people are complacent when things are this fucked up- that I condemn.

The difference: Idealism I do not condemn in principle. I merely advocate for realisms merits, and accept it there. However whenever people use escapism to ignore real life- to ignore the crimes they consent to by not protesting- by not voicing the outrage they should be feeling but are too occupied in their better life to care...
Do you see how closely associated that is with escapism? It is not the same thing- I recognize that. The fact that they are similar is whence this confusion arises. One is permissible, the other frustrates me, even though I realize that it would be no different if I were in the better half.

Okay, the only problem I have with point 1 is your manner of presentation, really. By the way you denigrate every game which is NOT your version of extreme realism into automatically being totally idealistic is just sort of generically disgruntling, and very condescending. But, I've kind of gathered that you're a very egocentric person.

As for point 2, I can see your issues here, but what, praytell, do you expect people to do about it? The military-industrial complex, now as always, is so far above the heads, in terms both of economic power and firepower, of the typical citizen that we have virtually no ability to so much as rock the boat, let alone accomplish anything significant. We can "voice our outrage" all day, and you know what the leadership will do? They'll laugh, and spit in our faces, because they have the power, and we don't. I'd love it if I could bring all our soldiers home tomorrow, and end our useless, endless, insane wars. But I can't. So I keep my head ducked and wait for it all to come tumbling down. It's the best I can do. I'm sorry if that doesn't suffice for you.

Rest assured, I don't go out of my way to thrust this into games for sick amusement. Nor is it anything for rape or guro in particular. Certainly not a fetish. But when logic calls for it, I spare no mercy. When I need a villain to kick the dog, I don't nerf the kick.

Granted, I am egotistical as fuck. Egocentric... wouldn't commit to that wholly.

And there's a lot more people can do about it. We ended the vietnam war, we can end this one. Stop paying taxes. Shut down entire factories- universities- towns. People gave a shit when they saw babies get napalmed- and we can put a fucking stop to it- even if it takes a while. But nobody sees babies getting napalmed anymore. Maybe they hear about some video going around or some military official getting replaced- but they don't see the murdered civilians. So there's some use in my talking about it.
Hell- you hear me bitching? At least I'm not the fucking Iraqi.

Thanks to homeland Security, you pull the kind of things you're talking about, you get to visit Guantanamo with nor reason other than possible terrorist activity.

That's the true measure of how stupid Americans have become. And they think Obama is destroying America? Please.

The biggest problem with wars in general these days is actually the opposite, though. We are so inundated with these constant bombardments of violence and hate, that we begin to lose all compassion for the people depicted therein. It's very similar to going numb from being cold. You can't cure it by turning on the AC.

As for not paying taxes, well, that's the rub, isn't it? Do you think that the government would cut their military budget, or (heaven forbid) fire some politicians? Hell no. They'd start by cutting out everything that prompts the average citizen. Social security, education, welfare. These are the budgets they target. Our government is no longer our ally. They're the mob, extorting us in exchange for "security".

And shutting down factories? There are hardly any in the US any more. All we produce is food and entertainment. Sure, the companies are based here, because they get good tax breaks, but the production is all done in nations with more lax labor laws.

So, I would argue that all we can do is wait. Shouldn't be long before the foundation for all this is too eroded to keep standing anyway.

>Government cuts welfare in response to public disapproval

You really don't get how this works, do you?

It's not their military power that keeps modern governments in control, it's bread and fucking circuses. The people ARE their military power, their everything. Successful governments are so because they keep their constituents happy.

And that's why you don't see much anti-establishment action in the states. By global standards, most Americans live in a life of luxury, and so long as their government keeps it that way there's little reason for the average man to want someone else running the boat.

The guys at the top know this very well. Such a move as you describe would be extremely unlikely.

Not powerless at all. Apathetic, and for good reasons, most of which I just said in >>11303124

Certainly, there are humanitarian and other complaints to be made about them, but at the end of the day the vast majority of Americans lead comfortable, entertained, and relatively unrestricted.

You don't get political uprisings when the populace is living well. You *might* get a "fall of rome" style scenario, but no revolutions.

Keeping us scared is far more effective than keeping us happy. They have to be subtle, but undermining public support for protests through manipulating opinions is not unfeasible. They'll never actually go through with it, maybe, but it's always the threat. When the budget started to tighten on Bush, what did he do? He threatened to cut social security. He didn't say it that way, of course, but that's effectively what they did. Want to end the war in Iraq? But then terrorists will murder you! Want to disarm some of our nukes? But North Korea's going to have nukes! And Iran! And they'll blow us up if we don't keep a stockpile! Etc, etc.

True enough. However, the government does have the manpower and the newly granted capacity to ignore the standard rules of conduct regarding it's people. True, a large enough mob or collective of people can cause some change, but given that Americans have no rights, such problems are infinitely easier to remove at the source in any number of ways.

People and information are easily manipulated nowadays.

The events I just described are merely references to the Vietnam war. People shut stuff down in protest. Non-violent protest. I don't see how referencing history is embarrassingly stupid.

And this complacency is precisely my point. It's what I'm bitching about. Yes, it is bread and circus. But Americans were still a superpower in the 60's. We had color TV when the rest of the world would have shit themselves for a radio. We can rouse our own non-complacency. It's not an absurd idea, although maybe too optimistic of one.
>>11303045
And this indeed is a vexing point, but I'm going to have to refuse to believe it. I'm sure most of the people on 4chan think they've seen it all. They've seen all the gore in the world. They've read the most fucked up shit pedobear has ever done. But I refuse to believe any of that gloss was real for them. I don't think it really got through. I don't think it's numbing. I think it's sock puppets. They know the story with a few shock images of gore and a general idea, but the shock fades. They see a body, but they don't see a dead man. It was never spelled out for them in full graphic horror just how much that death is going to ruin some people's lives.
Maybe that is hopelessly optimistic. Maybe people really are numb. But it's worth the attempt if nothing else.

And they undercut their country in the process. We could have won the Vietnam War if not for the fucking hippies and the anti-war crowd. Won it by attrition, if nothing else; we were killing them at a 200-to-1 ratio, and America had a bigger population to begin with.

If anything, the problem nowadays is that the people aren't motivated enough to support the war. If only we could regain the spirit we had in other existential conflicts, we might stand a half-decent chance at beating the Hadjis. But we don't, because of traitors like you undermining the populace and selling us out to be second-class citizens to our new Muslim overlords.

You forget that it's always other *people* doing the manipulating, the scaring, and so forth. Those kinds of tactics are short-term fixes that can't save a government with a bored, hungry, or oppressed population.

Take the Nazi's for example. Sure, they were evil as all hell and fucked all sorts of shit up. Sure, they took power by force, but how did they maintain it? They promised economic growth; jobs and food for all, and they delivered it. All the goose-stepping, jew-hunting fear mongering didn't hurt but it wouldn't have even been possible without a bunch of loyal people to monger the fear in the first place... whereupon again we come to needing happy people.

This is why the USSR stumbled and fell where the Nazi government did not. Both contained "chain of fear" elements, but wheras the Nazis also improved the security and quality of life of their constituents, the Soviets did not, and thus it was only a matter of time until the system crumbled. Even jackbooted thugs don't much feel like thugging for you when they can't get a damn tin of beans.
