Post Bioshock Infinite: The Ugly Truth of America
I'm not posting this as a review of the game, save as to how it relates to Gothic Earth. Namely that, sans a six-letter word for blacks, the game really captures the ugly truth of America and its racial, religious, and social views in the early Twentieth Century. Workers striking for eight hour days, paid vacations, and even decent and/or safe working conditions were labeled leeches, marrying outside of one's race was worth being stoned to death over, and anyone who wasn't white was considered a lesser being both genetically and religiously. In other words, life as it really was. And how things could, and often do, end when the oppressed become blinded by their own hate of the oppressors.

Fair warning, it's ugly. It's barbaric. It's inhumane. It's...American history as it really was. Now consider how much vested interest the supernatural would have in maintaining the bigotry. Evil is nourished most by the emotion called "hate."

"Money is the root of all evil...I think I need more money."
