No....you're quite wrong actually.
YOU'RE definition does not matter. MINE does because it is parallel to what is currently accepted around the world and video games is not in that definition.

The definition I posted above is the one currently and publicly accepted by society to be art.

"Your, " Not "you're." I am not a definition, the definition belongs to me in this context, though that isn't true, as it wasn't me who defined it that way.

You're just being pretentious if you assume your definition of art is parallel to that of the majority of the world. The majority of the world understands that art is a means of expressing ideas and feelings symbolically.


As I said, there can be no true rebuttal, and you've spoken nothing but falsehoods. My words are fact, and yours are opinion. Do you know how I know? Because my words are cited by things that are not my opinion, and yours are supported ONLY by what you think and believe. You are wrong.

If I may;

Just because a museum puts it on display does not mean it is art. Especially a Modern Art Museum. Video Games have not been accepted as an art.

This is a fact. You are wrong. There can be no true rebuttal. Acceptance is not a rebuttal.

art
/ärt/
Noun

The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture,...: "the art of the Renaissance"
Works produced by such skill and imagination.


YOUR definition of art does not matter. This is the truth. Get over it.

Or, we can continue to believe in that vague father figure while supporting advancement in math, science, technology, and reasonable social standards.

Can we go back to a vastly Polytheist society that worships gods of logic and science instead of some idealistic love from a vague father figure too?

How many times has the word nearly ended with highly trained professionals calling the shots? Read up on the Cuban Missile Crisis, a brief history of the Cold War and the Samson Option. Seriously, WMDs are a seriously bad idea.

If it was such a good plan why does everyone freak out whenever N.Korea makes a big display of testing its own bombs?

Yes, I'm aware the Cuban Missile Crisis was a close call, but that had more to do with the fact that those missiles were going to be placed VERY close to America, and in the hands of a fascist leader no less.

It's what works, since the WMDs are in existence, and the reason we still use a plan of Mutually Assured Destruction is because they aren't going to just stop existing. Guns are the same way; There are too many, and getting them is too easy, to hope you could control them all. The worst of it is, even if you tried to get rid of them all, if there's even one left unchecked it could have CATASTROPHIC results.


The reason why is because people like being scared. It gives them something to rally together about, and even moreso, because of a glorification of war that continues even in to the modern day. While a portion of people may be largely anti-war, I think the fact of the matter is there's a latent desire in America, and perhaps other places, to see a third world war, not out of desire for war itself, but more out of anticipation. It's sort of like if a reputable source told you a Meteorite was coming to blow up the earth tomorrow, and meteorites start whizzing passed the earth, but none of them quite manage to hit.

You know they exist, you know this is a tangible, plausible cause for your destruction, and even though it didn't happen when they said it would, you constantly realize that it's going to eventually, because the chances of it not seem to be non-existent.


I don't think, even with the ridiculous regime that North Korea must follow, that there was ever truly a reason to fear Nuclear Crisis. I think even Kim Jung Un realizes that a Nuclear Blast will kill him just as well as it will anyone else, whether he WANTS to believe it or not.
