Anyone here play Modern Warfare? I picked it up during season 4 after reconnecting with some friends who play it. What was interesting to learn is that apparently the character Farah and Urzikstan in general is based on the Kurds and the YPJ in particular. (You can really see it in the concept art.)

This the real crime against the kurds, adapting the struggle to an extremely shit game.

Project Reality (now Squad, but IDK if they've implemented it yet) had an insurgent team, who could disarm to become civilians who just had rocks and medical supplies.

If the blufor detained a civilian, they got intelligence on where the next weapon cache is.
If the blufor killed a civilian who wasn't near any insurgents, they lost progress on finding the next cache, needing 10 more kills to find it and the player lost a bunch of points. If one player killed enough, he'd be kicked.

It wasn't hugely effective, but civi squads could have some fun tactics, like rushing out of an alley insurgents just went in so some machine gunner on a hair trigger or APC using thermal vision martyrs you all, leading the blufor into IEDs, blocking an APC's route where an RPG/machine gunner can see you when they get out to arrest, running a squad of real insurgents behaving like civilians and pulling out guns when they go for the detain, running up on a partly downed blufor squad and picking up the downed guy's kit, running up and beating the shit out of a separated machine gunner/sniper so he has to chase you, and the squad he was pinning down can shoot him, and so on.

As someone who cares a lot about the revolution there, this was honestly a thought that occurred to me. It is actually the commodification of the revolution and sacrifices of the martyrs. I'm also a little salty that I got banned just recently for having the name BijiSerokApo.

I think though there's no point in getting upset about it. As Adorno said, "the wrong life cannot be lived rightly," and under capitalist modernity we are living a wrong life. Furthermore, getting upset at this would be doing what Mark Fisher criticized liberals for when he said, "The VC’s work of constantly stoking up reactive outrage consists of endlessly pointing out the screamingly obvious: capital behaves like capital (it’s not very nice!)."

It's interesting though that the philosophical leader of the Kurds Abdullah Ocalan wrote about this exact phenomenon, which he called the "virtual society:"

>A positivist society is a virtual society. Virtual society is the real face of positivist society. Moreover, it is truth itself. The meaninglessness of facts (here meaninglessness should be understood in the sense of the bloodbaths, imaginary society, and consumer society) peaks with virtual society. Media-oriented societies, societies of the spectacle, magazine-driven societies are the unveiled truth of objective understanding, i.e. of positivism. This is, in fact, the negation of truth.

I'm not sure I fully understand it myself, but I think he's saying that the virtual society is the negation of truth, meaning Foucauldian regimes of truth other than a positivist, objective regime of truth.
