Free To Play: Bioshock’s Andrew Ryan, Ayn Rand and Going Galt | GamingRebellion
Welcome to another edition of Free To Play, where I examine political topics in gaming from a libertarian viewpoint. Currently, libertarianism is a small portion of the voting population, but our ideas are gaining recognition in the national consciousness. Between South Park, Ron Paul, and Ron Swanson, people are beginning to understand what being libertarian actually means. This also includes those who disagree with our beliefs, but choose to make intelligent villains based upon the ideology, not just strawmen – essentially fictional effigies that intentionally misrepresent the arguments of opponents to make them look bad in the eyes of those uninformed. As what seems to be par for the course in Free To Play, there are spoilers ahead. You’ve been warned.
