I had a dream last night that could not have made me more glad that GamerGate exists.
In the dream Social Justice had won. And what ended up happening as a result was the internet had been completely shut down, world wide. The gaming industry had also been wiped out. All the giants, Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft, Capcom, EA, everything, bankrupt and gone. The comic and book industries were also gone. Toast. Marvel, DC, even goliaths like Archie went under within months. Total, catastrophic collapse of all of the big arts and creative media industries all over the word. Each week, there was news of SJWs destroying another big company and the industry around it crumbling. All that was left of our beloved hobbies was the indies. Small groups of those of us who truly love our craft and would willingly go through hell to share our love with others.
The dream opened up with me trying to build one of these groups. Without the aid of the internet, it was getting really hard for indie groups to start forming. But that was the basis of the dream. Everything artistic was gone, and it was up to us to pull together to rebuild our hobbies. Comic groups were being created, game dev groups were forming, writers were getting a hold of typewriters and forming indie writing clans, amateur film, etc. It was like a post apocalyptic world, but with art and media, and we had to work to rebuild the world by rebuilding creative expression, and a new culture that would allow things to go back to how they used to be. Where people got to express what they wanted without fear of feminist CEOs and executives. Which was hard to do, because of the new authoritarian feminist government monitoring phone calls for incorrect language and wrongthink.
It was kind of cool, an underground rebellion by creativity and artistic freedom, but it was also scary, because the world had gone to hell, and Islam had taken over, leaving only small societies of people willing to fight in our own way.
I'll say it again, I'm really glad for GamerGate.
