EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.

Too bad I wasn't subbed to EVE when it occured.Otherwise,I'd have created such a thread.

Maybe not enough people died? Maybe the people who died weren't Christians? I'll just leave this here and I won't bite the flamebait in case anyone tries to write one.

Just....just don't. This is exactly what those assholes want us to do, to turn on each other out of fear.

The lack of coverage by the mainstream media doesn't help, Baghdad, Beirut and Paris all got hit by suicide bombers within a 24 hour period, but Paris is the one that made headlines.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

The truth is that people pay attention to stuff the closer it is to them personally. A tragedy in the West gets more attention from Westerners than tragedies elsewhere. It's just human nature.

There was a deadly terrorist attack this week that killed dozens and maimed hundreds, and it didn’t take place in Paris.

ISIS suicide bombers detonated themselves in the southern part of Beirut last Thursday, killing 43 people and wounding 239.

Mainstream coverage of the Beirut attack has been sparse, pitifully dwarfing the current frenzy centering around Paris. Beirut has also failed to attract the kind of social media attention of the Paris attacks.

“It’s not Paris we should pray for, it is the world,” she wrote. “It is a world in which Beirut, reeling from bombings … is not covered in the press. A world in which a bomb goes off at a funeral in Baghdad, and not one person’s status update says ‘Baghdad’ because not one white person died in that fire…”

I guess CCP also finds "other bombings" secondary by level of tragedy, cause I dont see other posts of " Thoughts with the people of Beirut...or other big towns". Or is it cause you dont have so much customers in those parts of the world.

Last July, over a hundred Egyptians were killed by ISIS attacks. Last month, a hundred more were killed from a bombing in Ankara, Turkey. Then Beirut,,,and you guys react only on Paris.

Until humanity is so hypocritical and racist, the world will be no better place.

Meanwhile there is one player I know who lives in France who has not yet responded to an eve-mail I sent on Friday. It's 2001 all over again, wondering what happened to a friend who was a paramedic in NYC on 9/11/01. Hopefully he's just taking a break from the game and has not seen it. Hopefully.

In my circles we have to study the footage from Paris. This is not easy.

In the end, things are going on all over the place. The world is a slaughter house. Everybody knows this one thing. We are not Atlas, and to try is an exercise in madness. You can only endure the concern for who you know. This is why every year on December 24 if everybody who I care about was alive and in one piece on 12/24 of the previous year is still present, that's all I could ever want.

On the one hand it is kind of true though, we do tend to ignore tragedies that don't happen on our doorsteps, the issue is this isnt some worldwide game of misery poker.

Give people a choice between a tragedy in some place they've never visited and likely never will and a place like Paris, which for most europeans is right on our doorstep (seriously, I can go to Paris in less time than it takes me to get to London from where I am in the UK), and of course the Paris one is going to mean more to them because it resonates more. I've lost count of the number of '**** I know someone who lives near there' or '**** I/my family member/my friend was there just yesterday/last week/a month ago' type posts I've read on facebook or on message boards since the attacks.

To put it simply, people become more invested in a thing the more it affects them or people they know directly. Yes its blind and yes its stupid buts its how people are and shitting on people simply for being people doesnt help anyone, least of all the poor bastards anywhere in the world who have to suffer through these terrible events.

I feel sad about poor Diesel. But it's uplifting that the human members of her team feel honoring, mourning, and sadness for their team mate. People are not all bad after all. In fact, they can be pretty brave, heartful, smart and good.

Or Benghazi and Vile Rat all over again.

May the madness end.
May that time come when no human treats a fellow human as less... or more...
May that time come when we teach no hate, feel no hate, and suffer no hate.
May that time come when happiness flows from hard work, family and neighbors...
...when everyone is our neighbor.
...when our children may trust each other.
...when all our disputes are settled with reason and charity.
...when we give to those in need, even out of our want.
...when we build more than we destroy.

But first:

May the madness end.

Tactical destroyers... I'll take a dozen Gallente, please.

You would have to eradicate humans to eradicate madness.

Wait, this too is a mad idea. But it would be the last one for sure if it would come to fruition. Pirate
