Video Games and the (De)Skilling of Labor

Located at The Red Critique, by Rob Wilkie. I will have comments on it soon, but I didn't want it to get lost amongst my vast and impenetrable rhetoric.

The magazine itself, by the way, professes to be run by some serious communists. Not socialists, but actual profit-is-theft, fighting-for-150-years communists. They describe the actions of people like me as "strategies of appeasement, reconciliation by negotiations, and the pragmatic compromises of the North-Atlantic bourgeois left." That is pretty awesome. Honestly, I'm a little jealous.
