One of the greatest ironies of Marxist propaganda is that the propagandists always expect you to pay them for it instead of giving it to you for free.
Case in point: Disco Elysium. The game is a thinly veiled piece of yellow journalism masquerading as a “player choice” strategy RPG. And apparently it’s intended for kids? Communist game journalists seem to LOVE it, but independent reviewers complain that the game doesn’t actually let you choose non-left wing options.
And then as icing on the cake, the developers thanked Marx and Engels for their inspiration as political teachers when they won four game awards for the game. That must be the secret: just shoehorn Loxist, class-baiting propaganda into your game and you’ll win game of the year!
We’re also going to be talking about safe spaces for wammenz, forced integration in Sweden, and many other topics.
