Politicize Everything

Call for Submissions

I cover games with a political bent, and that bent is usually to the Left. I also write about licensed games. Games based on TV shows and movies and whatnot.

I just deleted about two dozen drafts on Medium. Most of them were on licensed games. Because they don’t matter.

A while back, my one friend who knows about my little enterprise told me to focus more on games and Hollywood, and less on games and politics. I did. I covered Henry Cavill and Warhammer, an alternative Star Trek game, and the new Marvel RPG.

In light of the recent Supreme Court leak, I’m going back to politics in games. I’m only going to cover licensed games if there’s a political angle.

BECAUSE EVERYTHING IS POLITICAL. ALL ART, ALL MOVIES, ALL GAMES ARE POLITICAL. AND IF THEY’RE NOT, THEY’RE USELESS. PURE ESCAPISM IS USELESS.

It’s now or never. America is becoming Afghanistan.

The Ugly Monster is looking for articles on anti-Right media or anti-Right angles on media that can lead to anti-Right voting. Games, movies, comic books, TV, theater, whatever. If you want to contribute, pitch me in a Private Note.
