Apolitical Games are Dumb

The “Keep Politics Out of Gaming” people are wrong. Pure escapism is bullshit when actual Nazis are running for office in real life. American gamers no longer have the liberty of pure escapism.

If a game, or any media, doesn’t address even a little of the real-life carnage, it’s a missed opportunity. And if a game doesn’t make you want to tax the rich a lot or jail polluters, it’s a crying shame.
