Here’s an article I would have rather not written.
I’m sad for humanity tonight. We might well be on the path to our own extinction. Why? What’s it all for?
I don’t want to hear whatever cockamamie story the mass news and propaganda outlets cooked up this time. Seriously, we fended off WW3 this long. Why now? What’s the point?
Not that either will read it, but-
Dear Mr Putin,
Please come up with a reason to have a lasting peace. Please, pull back your troops. No reasons needed. No blame. Stand down. Stop the insanity before we all lose. Please prevent further bloodshed. It’s not too late.
Dear President Biden,
Please stop whatever plans you have that may lead to an extinction level event on our planet now, while you still can. It’s okay to declare peace. Fewer people are likely to die from it, and you’ll still save face in the end. Do it for our children and grandchildren. Leave them a world to inherit.
As the world may not exist this time tomorrow, I love you. It’s been fun.
And if I’m wrong, then I’ll be back with all kinds of fun stuff for roleplaying games. Seriously, boardgames, roleplaying games and miniatures wargames are fictional. For the love of God, can we please just keep the fighting on the table with dice and miniatures?
