1. "White House Video Game Czar. This person, Constance Steinkuehler, says the job represents an incredible opportunity to make good on the claim that games have real promise. 2. ...the left, as represented by this president and his administration, seem to think that anything of value has to come from the government. More than that, it has to come from the White House....These people have no idea what the free market is or how it works. 3. The only thing she can do is force compliance on someone, probably the video game makers, but, given their history, its not beyond the imagination that the do-gooders at the White House would force people to buy educational games.... imagine a government bureaucracy monitoring game play. 4. What leftists (statists) dont understand is that, if there is a desire for games that teach, companies will produce those games. Why? Because it will be profitable to do so....They will be better than anything that could be designed by Constance Steinkuehler, or anyone else in government. 5. If Ms Steinkuehler was a great game designer, shed be in the private sector designing games and getting rich, not at the White House sucking off of the government teet. 6. For some reason, the left has no problem compelling people to do what they otherwise would choose to do. The way I like to put it is that they like to dictate to people how they should live (what products they should buy, what they should learn, and what they should produce). 7. You can bet that what theyd like to do is create something like a license to produce video games which requires the producer of the game to insert positive learning (the message of which will be totally up to the government)... 8. It will impose an enormous and unnecessary cost on the video game makers, doubtlessly costing jobs. Yet Obama will somehow claim hes created jobs. 9. That is the statist game: dictate what people can do, and force compliance. Id much rather play a game called Free Market Capitalism where people serve their fellow man by providing goods and services people want and need at prices people are willing to pay in a voluntary transaction. Do you think the White House Video Game Czar would create that game? The leftists in the White House dont even understand how to play it."
