Depending on your perspective, it's already difficult to maintain an entirely neutral stance in a purely military approach, however hard you try. Then, of course, some people don't try anyway, leading to posts that are bigoted, racist, sexist, or willing to view the history behind a game in such a simplistic and biased way that they go on to use it to justify some pretty unpleasant views.
I think that if you were to actually introduce politics, motivations, background (other than military) history, you could find yourself having given birth to a monster.
I'm pleased and grateful that thought is being given to ways to improve perspectives on conflicts, but I suspect the current suggestion would soon become unpleasant and unmanageable. Like most people, I have a general world view, which frequently needs to be reassessed in some cases because of the inconvenient truth of some of the facts. But I think it might be worth considering the weight given to views in support of the idea. In theory, wargames/strategy games should be able to be enjoyed by anyone regardless of gender, nationality, race, or political. In reality, this isn't the case, and those people simply drop out of the forums, and finally stop playing the games, or buying them.
I don't think I'm a shrinking Violet, but apart from this post, I dropped out of the Matrix forums years ago. I have my preferences set so I don't get notified of any replies. I already dread what some would be like. Thx. Martin
