That's great, I have almost laughed my arse off, it's so typical of any institiution and company to justify their avoiding doing what they're suppossed to be doing.Neoliberal crap. The next in line is the postman saying that I should not be expecting his services and my mail to be delivered as it is not fair to expect that of him since he's being very busy and after other things.
This analogy doesn't hold up. You paid Matrix for a copy of TOAW. Did they refuse to send it to you after you'd paid for it?
I don't think there was any point where Matrix signed an agreement with you, personally, to further develop the game. Moreover, they have in fact made several major advances in doing so, none of which you were charged for.
If you want to vent, go vent at Take-Two Interactive, who were so utterly obtuse as to demand a totally outrageous sum for the core rights to TOAW. If they had been more reasonable a) they would probably have got more money for their IP and b) Norm Koger would have gotten back the rights to his game and taken it from there years ago.
... but seriously. I was addressing the neoliberal crap about business and not the particular situation regarding TOAW III. If You didn't see the analogy, why did You use this as a context? Perhaps it was intended and there is no logical mistake there then. However, there is the analogy, it only depends which way one wants to juggle the words. It's the same as with the law - the law and the business with their discourses want to make others think their existence is an ultimate universal phenomenon whereas it is only possible through social agreement and the society are the people.The people have the voice and the right to have their say. Everybody's got a discourse of his own.The rest is willingness or unwillingness to bridge the gaps which are natural and unavoidable. Here we don't see the will to hence ranting and raving. People are trying to communicate and it's falling on deaf ears whereas You're trying to pacify that with slick apologies. Serial killers are also the way they are.It's not an argument, it's a circumstance.
