One thought on “Episode 059 — Fashion in PC Gaming

  1. Its so market economy-oriented!!!! Read some chomsky, russel brand, bertrand russell. Read julien benda on principles of justice/truth vs power/privelige . Managing is NOT genius, its not a fine art. Why not just make art, science, entertainment and tale care, and love each other? Stop acting like the market economy is a natural force where ppl are rational actors. See the requiem for an american dream on PR and commercial. And political change SHOULD come from someone who wants it worse for themselves. Be suspicious of anyone ever wanting power. Chill out! //best 🙂
