    I guess so! Gotta find a good avatar or icon of Vader somewhere. Tumblr has failed me so far.

    Well, I'd say that there really isn't a clear definition. Liberals label conservatives discriminatory/elitist fascist, whereas conservatives label liberals as controlling socialist/elitist fascists.

    Two tenets that seem to follow most definitions are nationalism and totalitarianism.

    Nationalism, which could be considered in simplest terms a population that is patriotic, loyal, reverent, to their nation.

    Totalitarianism, which could be considered in simplest terms a state that seeks to control the private and public components of their citizen's lives.

    For instance, conservatives seek to control lives by instituting policy that conserves mores and conventions of the nation. Whereas, liberal seek to control lives by instituting controls over health, environment, and other regulations. Both seek to control the lives of citizens though social mandates, or laws, that define which behaviors are and are not acceptable. Though, it's a matter of degree. Especially since there is so much polarization, both sides are competing for control, thus, we are considered either a democracy or polity. Though a totalitarian state would be controlled by one unified group of elitists.

    In this respect, a single group of elites are not controlling the lives of citizens. There is, perhaps, too much partisanship among elites, and thus, constituents. Which is more chaos, and the opposite of totalitarianism in certain respects. Some would argue a balance of control and freedom is necessary for a stable, yet happy state.

    I ramble, but this is a difficult subject to tackle, it's difficult to separate terms that are loaded with generalizations and connotations. Both sides tend to condemn the other for taking to much control over the lives of people, and disrupting freedom. Thus, each side calls the other fascist, but ultimately, this dynamic, could be considered hyper-polarized, conflicting, and thus less uniform, totalitarian, and nationalistic.

    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.

    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

    Omigod, not sure if I told you this before, but once I made added restrictions to abortions to appease the conservatives without pissing off the liberals too much (I mean, I'm not abolishing it right?) and IT WORKED. Insta popularity, then I pushed through some more important reform

    Why not show no mercy to the religious? I used to do Creationism vs Evolution as equal but... that policy was kind of insulting to the hi-tech and science backed country I'd directed, so I changed it as soon as I could.

    Oh yes. I played them off for years until their numbers dwindled As for the game's political compass, I'm in the socialist + liberal quadrant, mostly around 40 - 60%. I've moved to the economic centre before, but that was to reactivate people's interest in politics.

Whelp, it's that time of the year when Magic the Gathering releases another core set as a precursor to another wonderful block for the year. Sadly, even though I collected 2014 core set, I completely blew over the Theros Block, but this time around I'll try to get into the new block Khans of Tarkir. But for now, 2015 Core Set is out, so here's my review of the set.

NOTE: I'm judging the cards based on Standard.

Okay, I was going to stay away from PC for a long time, but I've decided to come back because some people were pissing me off with their posts and I just HAD to come back and say my piece. I probably won't post as often as I used to for a while, but I've decided to come back. Yeah, short break, I know.

Next time I just won't even bother with a goodbye message. If I'm gone, I won't say it, you'll just notice.

Yup, I'm leaving PC. Don't know how long and if anyone here hates me, then you'll be happy to know probably for good.

I don't feel like I click with most of the people here. I'm not going make a big old song and dance about it, just this message.

So long and thanks for all the fish.
