And as another side-note, I don't envy the Blizzard employees that have to deal with beta tester feedback. The beta community forums are horrible which is why I don't feel like I can effectively provide any feedback or criticism. It's an immature forum full of players whining, where most arguments include some form of "you're retarded" remarks and where a bunch of platinum-level players acts like anyone from a lower league is automatically wrong about any issue. Gah.
WoW has much more players than CS:S online, but I still rate WoW as a pile of dog shit because of elitist attitudes.
What you are trying to say is that you are too good for WoW? Or perhaps that you are too elite for it?
Would you prefer there be no government at all, to handle the serious issues of our daily lives?
Didn't say that, now did I? The government's primary job is to defend freedom. This requires military, police, health regulations, etc. There also should be schools, because a uneducated populace can cannot understand freedom. There also must be pollution and fraud regulations to prevent business from encroaching on the freedoms of the individual. I do not intend this to be a treatise on government, so realize that this is not a complete list.
Power consumption is something that you probably wouldn't worry about if it weren't for your energy bill. I personally would rather have a tyrant running my life for me to ensure a sustainable future for our species. If Freedom comes at the cost of our planet, I don't want any of it.
Ah, but how do you pick the tyrant? See Wrath0fb0b's answer here.
There's also an unexamined assumption here (yet another example of Christianity's baleful influence on our culture) that people can actually choose to be good or bad.
If people cannot choose to be good or bad, there is no such thing as good or bad. If there is no such thing as bad, Chistianity cannot be bad (or baleful, as you put it.) Hmm. Seems to be a contradiction. You may want to check your premises.
