I’m pulling thoughts together on a pro-life presentation I’ll be giving next week and have settled on ‘suffering’ as my topic, as it is an underlying rationale to much that we call the ‘culture of death,’ but is not usually targeted directly. By the time this little essay is done, you’ll see how ‘suffering’ and […]

The gamers of World War Two Online can ‘unsub.’ The programmers can ‘tweak’ the physics of the game to try to address the myriad of mostly contradictory demands that their paying game base demand; but there is always a cost to these changes. There is a diminishing of the ‘joy’ of participating in the universe as more ad hoc changes are programmed in.
