Still following the subject on the email below see interesting link above that reminds us of two crucial sentences of USA Supreme Court.

A first one in which the court rule that California statute to ban extremely violent video games have violated the minors First Amendment because California fail to produce evidence showing that violent video games can harm minors. And a second decision of the same Court which basically rules that its ok to limit the acess of minors to "girlie magazines" without the need of any proof concerning the harm that those magazines can do to minors. Hypocritical conclusion ? Its the minors sacred constitutional rights to have access to extremely violent videos but not to "girlie magazines".

And when we have legal and social values that have such high tolerance to extreme violence no wonder then that those who develop videogames start to produce videogames like this one https://feministphilosophers.wordpress. ... 5/rapelay/
or the very recent one https://sputniknews.com/society/2019030 ... l-assault/ that although not beeing allowed in the comercial circuit but for sure will soon be available in the dark net.

Finally its´s worth remembering that the notorius Utøya mass murderer Anders Breivik spent an entire year playing violent video games during as much as 16 hours per day as "training" to do what he did ! So the million dollar question is what kind of video game based training are youth acquiring these days ?

Assunto: Sweden preparation to war, the history of the winners and academia failing to do its job !

Its rather obvious that pacifism alone is not the best safety solution to insure peace in Europe. Especially after Russia has turn more belligerent in the Baltic region making Sweden to reinstate the military conscription beyond 1 of January of 2018, a country that is about to warn its citizens on a potential war ahead https://edition.cnn.com/2018/01/17/euro ... index.html

Also the NATO incursions on Africa are understandable as a way to provide a minimum of stability in that region that could reduce immigration across the Mediterranean. Still preventing corrupt African dictators to use Europe to laundry their businesses is no less effective. Also effective is to start a new narrative, and engineering citizens to stop seeing war through epical, glamorous lenses.

Out of the 70 million Scopus publications more than 25.000 publications have the terms WAR and HERO. 66% of those war hero related publications are from US/UK/Canada and Australia and only 2% are from Germany ! What can explain this laundry of the war term almost as a positive glamorous thing? The history written by the countries that won the war ? A war hero is a concept as rare as mythological creatures except of course in US movies. https://www.amazon.com/Hollywood-War-Ma ... 1594512973 or as someone wrote "the complicity of Hollywood in the culture of American militarism"

So why do we had a Nuremberg court but did not have a court to judge the ones that ordered the Dresden fire bombing, the massive soviet raping or the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings ? By the way why do we still have statues of war criminals of old (and not so old) in our cities ? http://www.flanderstoday.eu/current-aff ... leopold-ii Just because they won ? Just because they were entitled to write their own version of history ? And why haven´t universities starting treating WAR as it is, a sadistic and demential blood orgy ?
