China's Game Machine Slaughter House

Illustration for article titled Chinas Game Machine Slaughter House

While it appears that nearly all of these 600 video game machines are used for gambling, it doesn't make their death at the hand of Chinese police any less tragic. I can see copies of World of Warcraft going into a bonfire next.

Maoist China reaffirms my belief that America is a way better place to live in despite all the crazies and corrupt corporates leeching off of it.

I like my (hopefully still) Constitutionally-protected games.

People keep complaining about our government and how it's going to be OOOOOOOOH SOCIALIST IZ DA EVILZ. I feel sad that they don't seem to realize how saintly ours is - corporate-funded corruption be damned - in comparison to China's. Nixon should have left them alone to rot like Soviet Russia.

If people want a government that doesn't do anything, they should just move somewhere like Mexico or Somalia. SURE, they're seedy hellholes full of crime and even MORE unchecked corruption; but hey—you get what you wish for!
