Re: Something is definitely f'ed up with our society
"Because I see many parallels in the dehumanization of enemies in the games to what I've experienced in military training. "
Therein lies an important point. Humans usually only find it relatively easy to kill another person if they are convinced that person is "other". That is a cultural problem when a society breeds an attitude of "us against them" in many areas.
The USA has that problem today. The UK is going that way - as are other countries where populist demagogues are preaching "purity and separation" as a quick fix.
