    Moral Kombat: more "oh nos, video games" douchebaggery from Jack Thompson and Friends

    Edit, this began as a thread about the preview for "Moral Kombat", but then I got all hyped about Jack Thompson and his seemingly unstoppable idiocy, so here yo go.

    Oh yay, another "documentary" about the ills of society and how it's all because of video games. I particularly love the part about how MS Flight Simulator and 9/11, oh and how we're going to see something several times worse than Columbine and it'll all be because of video games.

    Fuck Joe Lieberman.

    Also, this quote, "violence has always been with us, it's been with us since Cane slew Able, but we've always recognized violence as a vice and not a virtue"... if I'm not mistaken that is Jack Thompson. If it is in fact him, it would seem Mr. Thompson's understanding of human history and sociology is as shallow and laughable as his understanding of freedom of speech and personal responsibility.

    As he is the ambulance chasing ring master of much of the rage against video games, here's a G4TV interview with Jack "the jackass" Thompson. The part about how a kid trained on Doom to go out and kill people, seriously... WTF?

    Thanks to Destructoid.com we have video of the contempt hearing of Jack Thompson

    PArt 2, the after math interview with Battle'n Jack Thompson!

    Apparently he really hates "Bully". I love his Kim Jong Il bit.

    And while I'm at it, G4TV making fun of Jack Thompson.

    The first is the best.

    Personally I think they could've made more fun of him, but it was ok. Thompson deserves as many pies to the face as he can get.

    To summarize the second video:


    Jack Thompson: Bully the game could start violent thoughts within teens.

    Everyone else: Violence is already existant, and has been prior to Bully.

    Jack Thompson: That's not the issue, the issue is that violent images for our kids are bad.

    Everyone else: Yeah, well duh. That's why it's the parent's job to, you know, parent.

    Jack Thompson: That's not the issue. The issue is that the U.K. has a similar first amendment thingie and they have laws against selling this stuff to teens.

    Everyone else: WTF?!




    Would someone just hook up some speakers at the bottom of an ocean and play the sound of an ambulance so we could be rid of him for good?

    And did you see her jeans in that clip? Take a look at them again. Fucking hot.

    I want to derail this thread and talk about Olivia like I want to derail Olivia's lower intestinal tract.

    "Violence has always been with us...but we've always recognised violence as a vice, and not as a virtue."

    WHAT THE...?

    *tries to stem seething anger*

    When Odysseus killed the suitors, it was a virtue. When the Israelites slaughtered tribes, they were virtuous. They weren't necessarily maniacs or barbarians, but they were certainly violent, AND PRAISED FOR IT.

    You want to know what the REAL crime is? Making moral judgments and dressing them up as historically-grounded, because you don't have the balls to give any decent reasons of your own.

    LAME.

    You mean you aren't already?

    Dude, what's the hold up?
    Science will replace religion. Knowledge will replace faith. Understanding will eliminate fear.

    Well, I talked to my parents about it and they told me to wait until I graduate from college.
