To commemorate the International Day for Conscientious Objection, we talk about three (four, if you count St. Maximilian) COs in US history. We hope to emphasize that objecting to a war is not done out of cowardice--on the contrary, the sacrifice can be so high that it is among the highest forms of bravery possible.

A Brochure for Young Women Thinking About Joining the Military | 2022

"When I joined, I knew that women in the military faced an uphill battle, but I didn't fully understand how serious the issues were and how reluctant leadership is to doing anything about it.

The truth is that there's a culture of harassment and assault that is incredibly harmful to all troops, but especially to gender minorities."

This paper explores how war-themed video games may impact gamers' perception of modern warfare. The popularity of violent video games such as Call of Duty has prompted researchers to investigate the effects that extensive game play may have on consumers. Due to their high potential for psychological influence, enhanced by military involvement and social networking, there is reason to believe that violent, war-themed video games may have psychological effects on gamers that could negatively impact their decisions regarding war and violence.

default White Supremacy and Apartheid: Contextualizing Mandela Popular

By In Peace Pill Tagged in white-supremecy 2184 downloads

White supremacy is unavoidably tied to militarism and militarization. From the way the military takes advantage of the precarious situation many people of color find themselves in to draw them into their ranks (as evidenced by the disproportionate amount of people of color within each branch of the military, compared to the total population of the United States), to the justifications that make war and military interventions possible. To commemorate this Nelson Mandela International day, we firmly take a stand against the dehumanization of others in any form. If you want to join us in the fight against militarism and militarization of youth, please visit our website: www.nnomy.org.

default Why is the player on the side of killing?": a conversation with the writer of Far Cry 3 Popular

By In Militarized Gaming as Recruitment Tools 3482 downloads

It’s not about the rush that we feel when we kill things, it’s about why is Jason on the side of killing and why the player is on the side of killing, which is a very different question. I don’t know if I’ve explained the subtlety of that, but part of what I’m trying to do with Far Cry is ask the question overall of whether life should be easy and fun, or whether it should be difficult and rewarding. And what love is, also. I was very much inspired by an article that Jonathan Franzen wrote in the New York Times about falling in love with tech devices. It’s called something like, “Liking is for cowards. Go for what hurts.” Basically, you could say that article inspired this game. Real love, he argues, is painful and hard. And a lot of times, not fun. It’s work. This tech love, on the other hand, is all fluff. It mirrors yourself back at you.

This game is an examination of that issue. The game attracts people like a tech device. Gameplay loops are based on tracking people without being hard.
