Libertarians need to shut the fuck up about loot boxes in video games

To put it simply: All forms of addiction are a byproduct of lack of human connection. Video games, themselves, can be argued to be such an addiction. As a non-gamer, it’s hard for me to make the leap to consider that such a tiny piece of a massive ecosystem that encourages human disconnection can be said to be more destructive and addicting than some other tiny piece.

Nonetheless, this is an important conversation- how to we shift our culture so that we both do not have “predatory corporations” nor the “disconnected, addicted individuals” who patronize them?

Shameless plug: http://holochain.org is creating the data storage and networking layer of a new operating system which biomimics natural, healthy human interactional behavior in modern digital computing systems.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
