This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

The RPGPundit's Own Forum / NYT: don't think critically!

So some of you may be old enough to remember when they taught you to 'question authority' and 'think critically' and the like.

No more! According to the NYT, because people are believing silly things, instead of trying to figure out the truth they should check approved sources and...Wikipedia.

Sometimes I wonder who won the Cold War.

Artists lean left (on average!). But I wonder--specifically in games, are there any with notably conservative themes? 'Conservative' casts a wide net, and the libertarian emphasis of a lot of American conservatism might mean there are some themes that might fit into the American variety but not the European, for example.

Some of these might be unintentional--I am pretty sure Chaosium leans left, but Call of Cthulhu always struck me as an essentially conservative struggle to preserve one's world against unknowable, dangerous invaders.
