I'm afraid it's going to take a long time to convince me of this: "Compulsive video-game playing could be mental health problem." Link. And even if they can convince me that it's a health problem, I have no doubt the solutions profered by The Establishment will result in bigger problems.
The article says the potential
classification of gaming as a health problem "led critics to warn that it may risk stigmatizing too many young video players." Something tells me the online gaming community couldn't care less about getting stigmatized. They just want to be left alone, and if you don't leave them alone, you will pay . . . as documented in Kill All Normies.
The problem is, of course, the Left can't leave them alone: It can't leave anything alone. Everything must be politicized at all times: sports, gaming, worship, otherwise polite conversation, etc. An explanation for this goes well beyond a blog sub-post, but it basically boils down to this: the Left is built on the goal to remake society, to break down its artificial constructs. The Left is not just a political thing, so it, by nature, relentlessly forays into the non-political. We can't ask it to leave non-political things alone any more than we could ask Christianity not to spread the Word.
The scooter: I don't get it, but then again, I didn't get a lot of things: "Venture-capital investors are pouring money into shared electric scooters at an unprecedented rate in the already fast-moving tech hub. They're making a sizable bet that these motorized two-wheelers will reshape how millions of people travel around cities." Link. My gut reaction is that they're for the lazy, but then again: They can go up to 25 miles on a single charge, traveling about 10 mph. I can't walk 25 miles on a single charge, much less at 10 mph (4 mph is my regular "brisk" pace), so maybe these contraptions have a place. It looks like we'll see. Next time I'm in a big city, I think I'll rent one for the day. I have to admit, a scooter bar crawl sounds pretty cool.
