Zach, stop being disingenious; Arma is nothing like what these games are meant to do/encourage.

These games are meant to condition young people to only listen to the official gov lines, and to dismiss anything that goes against the gov narrative.
Yes but there’s a difference between programs used for training people for a specific tasks and program ing people to Listen and Believe the Government.
Yes, yes they are, and not even in a semi-useful/fun fashion like Arma does.

The only one it is going to help is the aristocracy in suppressing you.
Take a look at russia, this is the result of cultivating an army that is willing to do anything. The army is willing to happily perform genocide at the slightest order, because it is made up of prisoners and conscripts.
that army is demoralized, on cusp of rebellion, and really shit at their job.

Meanwhile a well trained professional western army that is actually effective at their job is not going to be happy when their govt orders them to massacre their own civilians because they object to being oppressed.

The whole point of robot armies is to combine the "best of both worlds" from the perspective of the aristocracy.
Instead of training you install software, will perform any order no matter how heinous or retarded.
Or,my personal nightmare - they want cheap robot soldiers,so they would remove higher parts of our brains,instal chips,and they would have their perfect soldiers.

pretty sure thats going to back fire on them because sooner or later all of these wannabee aristocrats realize that only one person gets to be the one in charge. Thats when it all goes to merry hell.

Every single one of them is certain they are the next stalin. Not one of his partners whom he deleted from history
same thing happened during the russian revolution, same thing happened during the french terror, same thing happened with the rise of Mao.

Funny thing about the Stalin thing was that the soviets learned from what happened with nappy and were so determined to avoid a return to sanity that they created the conditions that let Stalin rise to power.

And he ended up purging more of them then any Napolionic figure would have.
