Divide and Conquer
This isn’t huge but to me it is an indication of the Divide and Conquer mentality thats slowly permeating those who aren’t aware. More specifically the impressionable children who flock to the latest major video games.
With the latest update to my Call of Duty video game, I am asked to choose between two teams to align myself. Complete with the warning “faction cannot be changed once you’ve made your choice.”
Completely nondescript teams that are differentiated by the colors Red and Blue. It seems strange that in the current climate this would happen when this game has never been designed around two distinct teams fighting each other. It’s normally a game of you vs everyone, or otherwise a computer generated match-up of random people.
This seems to be a common tactic through mediums such as video games, social media, newspapers, and mainstream media lately.
Just thought I’d add it to the list.
