Lol that would probably do the opposite. South Korea has mandatory military service, and you can delay service if you're a pro-gamer, but for a few years the military had an esport team for pros who had to cut their career short to serve (esports are on par with regular sports over there). The team would lose every single game cause the players can't play the 12+ hours a day that all the other pros do, it was a total joke. Definitely won't be enticing any serious esport gamers when it guarantees being shit at the game.

That being said, I think they have had success with using Call of Duty & stuff for propaganda purposes.

And you believe the rich kids paying people to do their homework will be using it for good? Enough good to outweigh OP's need for money?

I'm all for learning math to do good, but paying people to do your work signals to me that that isn't what you'll be doing with it anyway.

What does it matter if they learn anything? It's probably more ethical to help them not learn, so they are less useful to the psychopaths out there hiring people who do math; banks, weapons manufacturers, etc. The sort of people paying people to do their homework aren't going to be doing anything positive with that knowledge. People just trying to get the paperwork are just going to be cogs anyway.

Yeah I listened to it. What did you think of the series?

I didn't really like that Aragorn! never really seemed to actually make a strong case for or against nations. Of course the guy in the last episode made it clear that it's some shitty race thing as everyone expected, but Aragorn's main problem seemed to be that there is no basis upon which to create a nation, but doesn't seem to mind the concept itself. I mean, what if there was some real basis for a tribe/nation, isn't it likely that anarchists would still reject it?

edit: Like, let's say scottish people did feel like they have some kind of strong connection with eachother. Shouldn't that sort of dumb tribalism be overcome? Do we really need to lean into such cognitive biases? Especially when those biases usually lead to all kinds of conflict & dehumanization.
