Hah, yes true, this i also mentioned. As i was younger and playing 40K i was such geek with extrem less calm. I played like a speed chees monkey, i even figure out the other players difficultys for the next role some times....
I´m sometimes a little obsesive in complex things like that.
The Battletech-people are most a little special, so i never found a good connection to them, two years ago i read a BT-book, more of happenstance, and really like this reallity. Wasn´t as clean as StarTrek or similar stuff, more like StarWars with more realistic parts, more dirta and over aged vehicles.
Haha, so much i know, if you were some years younger we had a big chance to meet each other(there are justa few kilometers from hanau to Erlensee and its Fliegerhorst)^^ I know roleplay was also not unpopular to the Americans at Fliegerhorst, as a child i distribute promotion for our games store there. Was damn funny – as childs nobody realises us, we was first stoped deep in a security zone XD
From a nice girl officer^^
Survived also a lot of my childhood in a rpg/tabltop/LARP-social club......that was freaky times.....
My first live role play kill was another player – with 7 years.....what else should i become
Japan yes....sure there are more problems, but i would estimate this more than such, i think, consequences of it. I´m not the fan of collusive marriage and such, but the culture runs fine with it like many others - so i don´t think i have to judge about. Japan traditions are hard to both genders.
The war also did it´s part in debalancing the people, but i think this would balance at it´s own, maybe through imigration of cheaper workers from China - just an example. germany had gain a rush from Turkish people after the war, one reason why this culture is so strong involved into ours(ok, on a very special way - but that´s another thematic).
The actual narrowness of the big citys, the less space for living, strict behavior rituals and the need for output makes hard pressure for the single individual. Male and female. And the modern art gives the worst overcompensation a face, the absolute unsettled kids try to imitate. What you think about learning sexual behavior if watching Anime? It must not even be Hentai to get a devasting idea of what these kids have to deal with.
And the old game of - he think he must act like this and she think she must stand it - goes on. Some kind of self-flagellation and social acceptance....
I agree that this population thing isen´t even in range to the worst problems of Japan.
China is interesting i think. It was fallen into a everything-goes situation and did what everyone would have done. The criminals get political job discribtions and earn money while the little landlords manage the rural areas. And the economy grows from the point 0 on, what is a enourmous groth....on the paper.....
Unthinkable how stupid such business man must be to find this interesting o.O
But the normal evolution has also hit China, who never see this comming. Groth stops(waht is absolutly normal and unpreventable - you can´t produce 7% more each year forever) and money from this source was shown as fictional(like America and Europa has seen the last two years, or maybe a little more). Then the criminals must fight about the last coins and will getting into strife. Beside this, no big country is managable so easy. Ther are a few tricks to keep the people entertained, at last enough to not burn down politicans or call out revolution and indipendence. At first, the most loved trick is - war. Call one little ethnic group the badass and the rest is united. America choose the Arabians and we have choosen the Jews. Tibet and Mianmar had to serve this position till now, but even the Chinese people will see that ther mostly Chiese people living. So a real war is needet. What a luck that China has armed his troops with new modern stuff the last years. Don´t know who will be the badass, but the conflict about a few little islands with Japan was a test, how the Japans will react. Russia wouldn´t be stupid enough to get lured, but maybe America is outraged enough to start another proxy war. Between 5 and 10 years i think.
Must be wonderfull liberating to kick all traditions and reamins of a high culture.....
Education is a problem in itself. Cause it must brought to the peole in as much tongues as you have listeners, and if you equalize the message you got a meaningless mesh of misunderstanding and wrong interpretations. A example, i told you about my schools, i hear again and again that the germans are the bad guys and have to shame. Then you listen to historical documentations and see that this is a little easy spoken. In addition you don´t want to be a bad guy also just of a goverment not even your dad have seen with own eyes. And at alst - and this is a point only for more inteligent people - you see that other states, the good guys of the past, do the same things like the Nazis with broad agreement of all nations, goverments and people.
This was for some of my class mates a way into the assumption that being a Nazi is a way of defending against this injustice.....o.O
As i have told, Nazis are evil/facists are cool - a great man who can explain this to me........
First all people at the world must rise its IQ about 20-30 points, than i see a way out of repeating the mistakes of the past, or standinf voiceless at the side of the things happend.
Also democracy is a carved out lair fir criminals. Tell me when a politican have managed something you has elected him for. Or when was apolitican elected for what he has said rather than for how muchelection partys he has celebrated.
American election has something like a circus with clowns, chicks, elephants and donkeys. We have not even this.....So again and again our politican repeat empty phrases of something we all know they wouldn´t do, just even can´t do if they would have the will.
And to be honest, i´m happy to have better weapon controls, cause if stupid people, easily gained by by the next hatefull voice who declare someone as the reason for all misery at the world, can buy weapon, of absolutly no substantiation reason why on the half/not controled market, can go anywhere and kill someone, i don´t feel very save. And much more if i ordinary say things against the herds feeling.
I search for a answear a long time what for creatures must hunt in America that a hunter can have juse of a M82A1?
Yeah, everything starts somewhere. I agree that i understand every Al Qaida guy who ohas choose this way to get revenge for a killed child. But there this education thing starts again. Who is guilty? Are you killing Afghan children trhoug let you politican do criminal acts? Did the father wrong by not recognising what his neighbours plants were sold for?
Iraq war. Reason was a dictator, buid up by America. Al Quaida. Reason was a forged resistance of mercenarys America build up to kick the Russians out of Afghanistan. Try to explain this to a regular American who have lost someone at 9/11.
You can´t force teh people to think about what they do, maybe in a circle of frinds, most of the time - but not for a country, a land or, like it is needet for the example above, the whole world. Now all teh world have internet to know what exactly is the truth........i´m just to sad to laugh on this point.....
I´m always in the tricky situation to have no solution. Even i do nothing, it would be ignoring the evil guys next to me.
The Nazis, in optical style and in behavior was very popular, what wonderfull shows the teachability of humans. Many of Turkish people in Germany think they are cool and agree with ther "foreigners are dirt" idea. They also think so. Not too less Turkish people at my school thought killing a ethnic group is ok, even today!! Tukey have until today not said that they did mass murder on the Kurdes. I know some survivors, but nobody gives them attention like a Jew get, even if victim in third generation. My school friend was victim at his own. and nobody cares to say that this issent ok for a global player. Russia have murdered millions on 2.WW, Roma, Jews, own ethnic groups......not a single word in global history. America today is torturing and dealing with mass murders - not a problem. Israel has forget a secret service in best tradition of the GeStaPo and love to shoot at children, UN-personal and own people who not longer wnat that damn wall. They forged a land, Hilter would has been proud of. And all this falsity hurts a little.
So you see - i´m also very good in digressing.
Yeah, smartness wasen´t a sign of this time for sure. All big players was cigar smoking fat guys with one hand on the balls. So....like William Shattner, the series Boston Public shows relativly exact the person he really is.
So nothing else can be expected. England has big balls and want the war, France was pissed from the 1.WW and also wanted it, even with more remembering of what it would mean. America has big balls and send the weapon transports to England in the knowledge that this is breaking the international rules, and declares the transporters to combatant units. German submarines don´t shoot on civil ships, we shoot on slaughter cattle his own goverment has made it to. So....maybe i can say, every politican has earned the absolut minimum of what he gained, but not the people, ok, not the few who not has cheered for ther own demnation.
Btw.....sometimes i wonder why popular patriotism is. Why can´t my goverment be false, only be beeing mine? I don´t think Germany is cool as less as i think all other lands are cool. Why so many land around the world have such a problem to take this?
I´m thinking some old cultures have much more good reasons for it´s wars and problems than we have. Making a mistake one time is for education, make it twice is for making it tradition......
