Official Nazi Symbols inside Entropia, or Tacotuesday facemask ?

Discussion in 'The Black Hole' started by McCormick, Nov 4, 2017.

  1. @San
    I gatherd sufficient (forum) experience about taco, over the past years, using PCF.
    Also beeing aware that he doesnt like me that much, I dont SEE a reason to bother him ingame, about nazi symbols.
    I hope you understand. :)

    Because this might become an endless discussion, I did also contact support, just in case taco wont/cant answer.

    I understand. I was hoping others can understand one of the things that anger me most is real-life politics pursuing us into virtual life, the headspace we visit to escape from all that nonsense in the first place. I've experienced it in another VR before. You can't even have impure thoughts anymore. Maybe all by yourself on the toilet, but beware to let anyone see a shred of it. The concept of thought crime is very real. If Orwell could see all this...

    ... but tbh, who of the new generations read "1984" ? Or Klemperer's "LTI"?

    1935 Sinclair Lewis wrote "It Can’t Happen Here". A vision of Donald Trump. I'm afraid, old literature dosn't matter that much nowadays.

    I don't intend to discuss Trump, not here. This is just an example for the rampant manipulation:

    Too many people keep falling for it, and they're not any better at detecting it than a couple decades ago. Even the opposite, it seems. People can say "freedom" and "but..." in the same breath all the time and not detect what's wrong. So someone displays a symbol which triggers the politically correct and righteous on top of those actually victimized by what it represents (most of whom are long gone anyway). Oh be still, my heart.

    What if a whole army of real Neonazis was in your VR and spoiled your experience with their display? They couldn't do a thing to anyone, that's VR, a "safe space" in the best sense of the word. "Safe space" in the worst sense of the word, as its violent advocates have it across university campuses and elsewhere these days, wants to be rid of anything and anyone dissenting their own views and thus achieves the exact opposite -- outright war and oppression. But we play kill and rob all day long and find nothing wrong with it. Quite the opposite, we come here in the first place to enjoy these things and let off steam with some pixel violence, because it doen't hurt anyone real. The piracy discussion might be a borderline case since MA's setup allows for putting real money at risk, but that's the full extent of it. This thought control following you down every hole you try to retreat in is much, much worse. Big Brother cracking down is one thing, netizens helping him by denouncing transgressers is another (what is "Blockwart" in English?). THAT is something we've experienced in the real world ad nauseam and with real lifes destroyed. Millions and millions of them. Now let Taco be. Because next it's your (sexual?) phantasies.

    Well, my post was about forgotten old literatur, not about Trump.

    But I agree with you about the "thought control". I lived 35 years in East Germany and often I sat hidden in my little hole (brain) wondering how much of Orwells dystopia already became true. Considering, that some of my fellow students or colleaugues are "Blockwarte", informer of the "Ministerium fuer Staatssicherheit".

    The most interesting aspect for me is how far external thought control by police, government or whatever will evoke internal thought control in individuals, (had to search it at anticipatory obedience.

    My thoughts were that even our "geliebter Fuehrer" ... ehrm ... president wouldn't launch such things but it's a stupid idea of a participant.

    Well, only the term "objectionable" would mark the makeup in question as forbidden. But at this point I jump onto San's train.
