I mentioned a while ago about how I mistook the leading games as an indicator of the kind of games people want — which is always incorrect. People don't even know that they've been monitored in the things they're using every day, so how can any "metric" be authentic of their behavior? This just motivates me to work with people who care about people to not feed into the excessively normalized state of violence that's randomly been deemed okay.

I love the argument: "but humans have always been violent". That's further from the truth, and we really need to start getting people to either read or actually learn non-McGraw Hill approved textbooks. They barely talk about the Civil Rights movement and will have spreads about the "glamour" of killing indigenous people; why would that be an accurate representation of the state of humanity?
