FTL and Violence
« on: March 17, 2010, 04:36:09 PM »

These days, the message on FTL is consistently non-violent.  Or is it?  What's with this ad graphic?

That does not count as it's English.

As in, killing English Prime Ministers is non-violent?

Libertarians can justify anything by calling it self-defense.

...and it very well may be self-defense.  As people here may recall, I haven't cried any tears for the bureaucrats killed recently.  It's just that Ian and Mark have been so outspoken about it that I thought the appearance of inciting violence was something they want to avoid (and I really can appreciate that from a practical matter for them, more than a philosophical matter.)  This graphic says "head shot" to me.

Now that I've typed "Mark," maybe there will be a response. ;-)

Sounds like you have an issue with the UK Lib, not FTL.

It never crossed my mind. I will talk to the guy about it.

No one has conjectured that I could quite possibly be a Libertarian posing as an Anarchist trying to pretend to still be a Libertarian; or what I like to call an Anarcho-Hustler.

They review all the advertising, and they've pointed out that there are things (such as violence and racism) that they won't condone.

It looks to me like a target and blood splotches. Doesn't sit well with me.
