I have been playing a game called Clash of Kings. While playing the game I noticed two basic truths. First as people attacked my castle I would have two reactions. The first reaction was anger as I would loose all that I had worked so hard to build. Then I would build an even stronger Army after every attack. But contrary to the beliefs of the war mongers of industry, the most prosperous time in the game for me is the long stents of peace after the bully thinks that you are destroyed.
One of the Urban Myths that the Liberal population loves to through out at us who favor justice rather than enablement, is that Weed has No addictive properties. Well lets examine this rhetoric. The book Trails of the Heart, now in audio, defines an addiction as any habitual behavior that the subject does not have control over. The problem is that when the an addiction takes over your life, nothing else matters to the point that you could end up fighting for ways to feed that addiction.
As you fight for your addiction you are less productive at work and in every other aspect of your lift. Just like in the game “Clash of Kings,” the addiction becomes the dominant factor in the Addict’s life. The fight for dominance in both the game and in life must be managed and balanced with the basics of life. If the addiction is a disability at all, it is only because the addiction or rather the Addict has lost a sense of what is important in life. Yeah, Marijuana is harmless that is why my neighborhood is filled with loosers who live off of the tax payers and are still in Mom’s basement at 50 years old.
The second factor in the game that I noticed to be true in real life is the fact that humans tend to be greedy and prideful, OK no surprise there,. Well it accrued to me that we could have a lasting peace among men by just being ride of the economy. If humans did not strive to dominate there resources, we would have nothing to fight for. One of the factors of the game that helped me come to this realization was the fact that I was able to develop my technology much faster in the peace time in between attacks. As a result the armies would get stronger with better training with every hour that my castle was not getting attacked so someone could steel my resources.
In the game also much like in life, you can allie yourself with others but more times then not you help them, spending your resources to do it with no hope for return. So I broke away and formed my own alliance. I think a big reason there are so many Democrats is because they are too afraid to stand up for what is right and hide behind the mob for their own protection.
