Republic of Vietnam

a question for the game dev

Recommended Posts

to qoute this post i must point out that you did not reply back to what a brudda said about why the hammer and sickle is not banned. with all due respect the only reply was a A style of reply of if you do not like the game don't play it. well im not a nazi or a communist but i have to ask for him. why is the hammer and sickle and commie hate group flags not banned?

that and why dose the hammer and sickle get a pass? not...that im saying we should have swastkas in the game but why dose one radical party get a pass here? 



no hate just curious im a historian my self and a geopolitical thinker i just want to know why websites and games like yours allow the hammer and sickle to still be used 

 

 

 

 

signed Quan Minh Dao first president of the third Republic of Vietnam 




ps im all so worried that my flag could in the future be deemed as a hate flag and get me banned 

 

ps to the PS why cant we post in that comment section as soon as you read it?

Likely because history teaches us that middle eastern terror groups and nazis are bad bad while there is no emphasis on what socialist/communist regimes have done to their people. Therefore, regardless of actual factual history, communist/socialist regimes are not bad bad - they are just frowned upon.

It's almost impossible for invocations of Nazism or terrorism to not be bigoted. This isn't to excuse what communists did - tens of millions of people died as a result of the actions of communist regimes and hundreds of millions were deprived of human rights by those regimes - but communism never incorporated the focused, bigoted, often-violent brands of social traditionalism that Nazis or terrorists base their ideologies on. This makes communism much harder to translate into harassment online, and it makes Nazism or bad readings of the Quran appealing to people who are likely to post the type of poisonous stuff that moderation is most concerned with.

rly? i think its radical not just in how it was done but how communist thought is even in its purest form for example commies want there to be no nations in the end only 1 super state

no 2 they want no one to be prideful in there race and just have us all be bland humans with some communists planing to have the world all have 1 toung and culture as to get rid of the idea of the nation state

we can see this in a small with with east Germany and Hungary and Poland only 80 years ago they would not have called them self as 'Slavic" but due to how the ussr acted they brainwashed them in to thinking there something there not 

 

 

Nazism and Communism are both awful and both racist end of story

The decision to ban terrorist and Nazi themes is purely a business move on the game developer's part. Politics and War is a business and having terrorist-themed nations or Nazi-themed nations would drive away advertisements. This is because advertisers don't want people to connect their produce with platforms that 'promote' terrorism or Nazism. In the West, communism isn't viewed in the same negative light that Nazism or Islamic radicals in the Muslim world are. Go to your local Wal-Mart and wave the Nazi flag and you'll be made fun of, ridiculed, and you picture will make it to social media. Go to your local Wal-Mart and wave the flag of the USSR and you can very well be ignored because nobody will care.

We can discuss rather or not all this is fair, or if communism is worse than Nazism. However, at the end of the day Politics and War is still a business and the game developer has to consider his bottom line... and that's just kinda that.

The problem is causing mainstream offense. Zionists and Western nationalists tend to be highly offended by mention of terrorism, especially after the propaganda output post 9-11.

 

It's all about irrational social standards; if this game were run in China, mentions of 1989 or the Cultural Revolution would be banned. If this game were run in the Jim Crow South, mentions of the American Civil Rights movement or talking about racial equality would also be banned. The social circumstances simply mean that, while talking about Communism is okay, talking about Nazism and Islamic terrorism is not.
