(this is the thread from the "the Politics" line of the forum, I moved it here because more people will get a look in on this forum)

Hello guys, I am working on a few essays and speeches to deliver to the press and politicians who have been hounding our entertainment for donkey's years, I have figured that if we can get a few people to write out their angle on the situation we may have a case, I don't want this to be a flame spree, people telling fox news that they suck etc, but I would like the honest opinions of gamers with an IQ in at least double figures so we can put our feelings out there.

Up until now there has been no one fighting our corner in the videogame world, we are the people who are there as a convinient punching bag for people who want to get a step up in the world, be it politicians looking for a scapegoat, the news looking to get their ratings up by playing the blame game or the high school bully who is convinced that those kids playing videogames are nerds and they need beating up to convince it.

We have been labelled murderers, freaks, fools and fatties, we are stereotyped and attacked by the people who we work with, in the words of Tyler Durden (fight club) "You are the all singing, all dancing crap of the world", but I say no, we are the elite, we are the people with something good in our lives, we enjoy what we do and we will fight to defend it, if that makes us lower than human than I suggest that these people read some history, for to my knowledge, we have done nothing that deserves the animosity that we recieve from the uneducated, you see on FOX news webcasts, people shunning games then claiming that their knowledge of the situation comes from "very reliable sources" yet have not been involved with our medium of entertainment since the days of pong, so how are they qualified to pass judgement on something they do not even understand? I for one believe that judgement should be given by people who have an understanding of the situation and not people who have been fed the information through sensationalist media.

So gamers on this forum, I would ask this of you: open up MS word or whatever word processing tool which you prefer, get writing and put something useful here for us to give to the people who can change things!

I do not know how far this will go, but I know this: our cause isn't lost and we need to fight to keep it that way, and if possible fight some more to see that it is no longer a cause that we have to fight for, make the folks in number 10 or the white house know that it is a part of modern life that they must accept, how a parent chooses to raise their child should not be influenced by the government, it is the job of the parents to understand the ratings system and adhere to it, they also must accept that the world is changing, old ways are dying, in the next 20 years the media should be working on finding a new scapegoat which we, as parents will probably go all up in arms about, and the circle of hate will move on, something that I honestly hope does not happen, but right now we are powerless to stop, so let us at least fight for what we want, for what we have as part of our lives and tell the government, the news stations and all associated people that it is time for them to can it and accept the will of the people who got them in their current position in the first place.

My name is Ben, I am 16 years old, and I am a gamer, I have been one for in excess of 10 years now, 2008 marks the fourth anniversary of my gamer profile "Pominator" and I ask you all to let me see it through another four years, this is the responsibility that we, as gamers need to take otherwise we will be chewed up by the political/media machine, that we have empowered for so long, this weekend I will start my own essay and post it here, if you get to work on something too then we may have something to go on, come on people!
