Well I look at it from a Soviet perspective where you have distinction between the military and militarism (interlinked with imperialism). Similarly, I see a distinction between gaming and gamers (or gamer-ism), furthermore


sort of like the distinction between pleasurable shared activities based on customary rules and goals in general, and the specific activity of compulsively collecting and running resource-intense computer programs that are designed to be addicting to children

the trick is to start making highway on/off access asap. I'll try to find the youtube guy who changed my game. don't be afraid to spread out and be messy, forget about grids.

So you're getting your harmony on, by burying your head in some shiny pro-car propaganda. Sounds like climate change denial to me
