from 1983 to 1997

Toronto, 2013.07.22

Ken and I have been playing an emulated version of the ~1983 Commodore 64 release of the original "Mario Brothers", the platform game. Today we upgraded to the circa 1997 version of Mario Kart from the days of the Nintendo 64.

Ken's having a blast. One of these years maybe we'll move into the decade between the 90's and the current decade. Not sure what video games looked like back then. I guess we'll find out!

(In which I leave the final word to someone else.)

Naturally the common people don't want war: Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.

-Hermann Goering
