The biggest problem with communism as an ideology is that it has to deny the fact that some jobs are far more valuable and require more work and expertise than others. As one of my professors said, “communism says that the brain surgeon does not deserve to be paid more than the guy dipping cones at Dairy Queen.”

And even if you could come up with a version of communism which makes the concession that some people deserve to be wealthier than others (fat chance, since the core belief behind communism is that there should be no financial classes), you are still faced with the problem I mentioned above where you have to put people in charge to decide who gets how much money, and that will always lead to corruption.

A free market with moderate regulation is not perfect but it’s the closest thing we can get to “fair.” There is nothing inherently unjust about the concept that one person can earn more money than someone else, or that they can save up and leave behind a better life for their kids.

Commented on Islamic State (IS)

My guess is that the US government told Twitter to keep the accounts open because they’re tracking them. I think ISIS has not yet considered the inherent problems with trying to use social media for war.

Why exactly do people use NeoGAF, again? Why do people put up with a website that is run by a bloody communist who censors anyone who causes even a minor amount of pain to his anus?

I have a NeoGAF account but I’ve never even used it because I know I’d up getting banned. I have a low level of tolerance for unchallenged bullshit.

Commented on Unfriended - Official Trailer (HD)

The fact of the matter is that it’s very difficult to dramatically film someone interacting with a computer, because when you just record someone using a computer there is nothing interesting to see. A movie like Tron or The Matrix works because interacting with computers is depicted as literally entering a new world, and other movies focus on the drama surrounding computers rather than using them (Pirates of Silicon Valley, or The Social Network).

A whole movie that takes place inside a Skype chat is just plain stupid. It’s like someone took one of my most hated tropes-- the “dramatic Google search scene,” and made an entire movie out of it.

Commented on Unfriended - Official Trailer (HD)

Hollywood still hasn’t figured out how to make movies about the internet, it seems. That trailer had all of the impact of the abridged version of Cyberbu//y

I can see it having tremendous potential for Youtube Poops, though.

Commented on NeoGAF has an interesting ad...

I am done pre-ordering games. It’s just a guarantee for the publisher that they will get my money even though the game isn’t going to work until after a week of patching, or longer. It’s a scam and they are the ones who benefit from it.

The only exception I make is kickstarter titles, and even there I am pretty selective about what I choose to back. If you are a big publisher you do not need my money up front. Release a game that actually works on Day 1, and maybe I’ll actually consider buying it on day 1.

Whichever. At some point all these SJW nincompoops start blending together in my headspace.
