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.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

I’m pretty sure I already posted that one, maybe as a link in a different thread. But yes, good that researchers realize that this is a thing. It is glaringly obvious in many cases.

Well it's certainly a good thing that conservatives never see themselves as victims.

At least, the whole ideology is not based on victimhood.

Very true.  A victim is helpless, at the mercy of powerful forces they can't hope to protect themselves from.  They don't buy guns to protect themselves, preach self-reliance, eschew government taking the place of personal responsibility, prep for societal collapse (you know, all of the things conservatives are mocked and criticized for).  No, victims whine about how helpless they are and wait for someone else to solve their problems.  A conservative can be a casualty, but not a victim...

I heard someone talking about the locus of control.

If you have an internal locus of control then you can take action to save yourself.  If you have an external locus of control then you need the Cathedral to save you.

pathetically struggling,
look at the good things you've got! -  Jesus

I read a nice little article talking about population density's effect on politics. Basically, she said: if you're living in the middle of nowhere, even a well-run system is only getting an ambulance to you in 45 minutes, or a mechanic in 3 hours. If you sit around waiting for someone else to help you, you die. But if you live in a big city, it's now 5-10' for the ambulance and 30' for the mechanic. You can usually wait that long.

And of course, in that rural area if you get quicker help, it's not coming from the government or a corporation, it's coming from your neighbour.

So, rural areas will produce people who think of self-reliance and community. Urban areas will produce people who think of big government helping them - they don't even know their neighbours' names, usually, and certainly wouldn't rely on them for CPR or a jumpstart for their car.

Obviously the world isn't divided neatly into rural and urban, and people move from one to the other over the course of their lives, and so on and so forth, so it's not a perfect division. But it's something to think of.

With that in mind, perhaps the woke victim is simply reaching out for some community and help.
Rules for effective DMing:

2. The dice are always right.
3. I master the game, the game does not master me.
4. Momentum over perfection.
5. The game must go on!

Please do. This makes it easier to watch old men die in piece.

Unless you're one of those fuckups who takes not blocking people as a sign of virtue or some shit.
