I learned a lot
I learned a bit
I learned nothing
It neither changed my mind nore did I learn anything
I got inspired by some interesting ideas here
It made me think more and deeper about politics and economics
The game itself did not show me anything, but I got inspired by board discussions
It is responsible that I'll change my vote in the next elections
I would recommandate the game for making people more interested in political issues

Thank you Unkas&Co for putting this question as I totally agree with the ideal you describe.

I voted, a o, both for "learned a lot" and "learned a bit". The amount I've learned perhaps is somewhere between a "lot" and a "bit" Smile But most essentially I want to make a remark about "learning"...
Particularly the value of the game is how it incites to and offers a framework for posing relevant questions concerning economics and politics.
This is as it ought to be. Schools teach naked answers to questions never posed and this is useless. What has value is the questions we pose - an answer will sooner or later arrive. What answer we receive is a function of the question we found. It's in developing the question the real work is laid down. A good game can be regarded as a good question!
As such it is not only a question of learning about the real world from the game, but it is also thought-provoking concerning how well the game simulates the real world.
Therefore the forum discussion is an essential part of the package.
(Helsworth is a treasure! He brings a task to understand what he is talking about and then to find out whether I agree with him or no.)


Thanks, Sylence.
I resisted a little bit at first the arguments offered by MMT. But then, after I understood that it was all basic double-entry bookkeeping & laws/penalties that enforced the rules (used for good or ill) - it all became clear & I became a deficit owl. Believe me, it's a frustrating existence. You find yourself amidst the ranks of the insane & you try to escape them... but the reality & (false) debates always bring you back; and once more you try to tell people about the other 1/2 of the balance sheet.

RE: How did Ars Regendi influence you?

Ars Regendi has made me more pragmatic and humble in regard to social issues, and has granted me a greater and more deeper understanding of the way society works; economically and socially. In regard to the discussions, they have inspired me as but a human being to preach to others the necessity of analytical, empirical and unadulterated scepticism when it comes to dealing with politics.

It has made me more involved in politics and more open in debated social issues. Before I played this game, I had no idea what to say to someone if they asked of my political standing, now I do. Cool

Fellow Players:

My experience with A-R has prompted me to support more nationalistic policies.

Cheers,

It hasn't.

These days we live in an age of marketing. Every small thing, no matter how insignificant, is sold to us as being Epic! Life-Changing! The Most Stupendous Thing Ever!

Well, fuck you. The truth is, hype turns me off. Just present your product honestly, as a fun diversion, and stop trying o tell me how it's going to alter the course of my existence. I don't want to be advertised to.

Well, to be fair, Ars-Regendi doesn't practice such advertising - it's not like EA. Happy
