25 for individualism, 34 for collectivism. I guess individualism and collectivism can be better described not as two ends of one, but as two separate spectra. I value both my individuality and community, but community more than the average person, is what I'd take away from this exercise. What do you get?
Haha I'm afraid I'd be biased And it is very complex. I don't like boiling geopolitical conflicts into tl;drs because I'll probably end up butchering it.
The most immediate events are protests all over Ukraine over the President cancelling a EU trade deal and corruption. President Yanukovych ends up leaving the country, gets impeached in absentia and an interrim government is in power, making some changes which I don't quite remember. Anyways Russia invades the Crimea, and now their parliament have voted to secede from Ukraine and are having a referendum on the 16th about the same issue.
You listen mostly to metal eh (iirc)? Do you ever feel out of touch with a music scene? Like stop listening/downloading for a while and then feel like a hermit when there's this song that everybody knows but you haven't heard.
Sounds like I might give it a try, but I'm saving my money right now for South Park: The Stick of Truth. It's an RPG designed to look like the actual show and it has it's own original plot in which you are the new kid in South Park. I'm optimistic about it because unlike South Park games of the past, Trey and Matt are actually part of the process this time around. Everything I've seen of the game so far looks great. Classic South Park humor mixed with an RPG system that feels reminiscent of Paper Mario.
omg that california sun must be incredible ;; I was in Mexico, now I'm back home freezing my ass off.
Vic II is strategy, yeah. It's a spreadsheet game - you lead a country, and all the action happens in population groups which function in their own little economy and it's really complicated XD Actually, it's very interesting... you can explore how countries developed over the 1800's, which is especially important for the US as that century was its ascent to power, at least economically. Last I remember, laissez-faire economics was broken, but with patches and mods you might be able to get away with laissez-fair and not implode your economy? As Germany I started by choosing a party with a state capitalist (cuz I'm the Kaiser) because I was sick of capitalists making not very rational investments, but as the economy grew, I gave them more freedoms because I couldn't handle it out of sheer size
Anyways. If you're into politics, economic policy, foreign policy and all that it might be up your alley An American empire is fun to build
