You Won’t Believe What Classic Game Has Gone Woke!

Hasbro now plans to bring Monopoly into the increasingly “woke” 21st century.

According to the NY Post, Monopoly has gone “woke.”

“After 85 years of cheap hospital bills, moderate stock earnings and maturing “Christmas funds” (whatever that means), Hasbro now plans to bring Monopoly into the increasingly “woke” 21st century.

“The game-maker has decided to update its 16 Community Chest cards, which featured outdated prompts such as winning a “beauty contest,” actually receiving a “tax refund” or the now-rarely seen “bank error in your favor.”

“In their place are more contemporary cards that evoke community service and social awareness. Swaps could include a reward for “shopping local all week,” rescuing a shelter pet or helping tend the community garden. But Hasbro wants players to decide which to include via voting.”

What are some of the options for cards? Here are a few:

According to Wikipedia:

Monopoly is a board game currently published by Hasbro. In the game, players roll two six-sided dice to move around the game board, buying and trading properties, and developing them with houses and hotels. Players collect rent from their opponents, with the goal being to drive them into bankruptcy. Money can also be gained or lost through Chance and Community Chest cards, and tax squares; players can end up in jail, from which they cannot move until they have met one of several conditions. The game has numerous house rules, and hundreds of different editions exist, as well as many spin-offs and related media. Monopoly has become a part of international popular culture, having been licensed locally in more than 103 countries and printed in more than 37 languages.

Monopoly is derived from The Landlord’s Game created by Lizzie Magie in the United States in 1903 as a way to demonstrate that an economy that rewards wealth creation is better than one where monopolists work under few constraints,[1] and to promote the economic theories of Henry George—in particular his ideas about taxation. The Landlord’s Game had two sets of rules originally, one with taxation and another one mainly based on current rules. When Monopoly was first published by Parker Brothers in 1935, it did not include the less capitalistic taxation rule, which resulted in a more competitive game. Parker Brothers was eventually absorbed into Hasbro in 1991. The game is named after the economic concept of monopoly—the domination of a market by a single entity.

The Post That Made Facebook Threaten One of America’s Top Motivational Speakers

Apparently you aren’t allowed to ask pointed questions that make the leftist overlords look bad.

Apparently you aren’t allowed to ask pointed questions that make the leftist overlords look bad. Check out PolitiCrossing Founder and motivational speaker Chris Widener’s post that earned him the threat:

If Covid was so deadly, would Democrat politicians get caught without their masks dining at French Laundry? Or going maskless in their private jet terminals? Or at the ball games they attend? Would they really risk their very lives?

If the seas were really going to rise from global warming would Obama really own thirty million dollars of beach front properties?

If this is so deadly, would they allow us to pack hundreds of people into an airplane eighteen inches from each other (yet require you to “social distance” while you get off the plane)? Would they allow thousands of people to use the same touch screen to check in in airports like I just did ten minutes ago?

You have been fooled my friends. Look at what they do, not at what they say. The biggest scams in human history are being pulled on us and half our country goes along with it because they have no discernment of right and wrong or truth and error. And worse, when you call them on their BS, they act indignant and curse and belittle you.

Why would they keep virologists from the best schools in America from getting their message out that this is a scam? Why would they keep you from using medications that have been around and safely used for decades?

We simply cannot continue to allow these shysters to harangue us into complicity. I for one will continue to fight until my dying day for truth against duplicitous manipulation.

If someone told a crowd of 1000 people that they have to shut down their businesses and stay home from school and wear masks or else ONE of those 1000 people would die in the next year, would you do it? Of course not. That’s the math, and only if you believe all the reported cases of death by Covid were actually true but of course we know that many deaths were categorized as Covid deaths but weren’t.

And yet that is exactly what we have done.

Why would they roll out a vaccine that doesn’t even keep you from getting Covid and has tons of side effects and roll out national marketing campaigns to pressure everyone to get it?

What’s really going on here?

It is time to put on your thinking caps, my friends. Just because someone in authority says something is true doesn’t make it so.

In What Do You Believe? (1)

We each have the freedom to choose the life that works for us without inhibiting others

Published

Jim Cathcart has written a sterling piece which follows below. Jim, who I’ve know since 1984, grew up in Arkansas, worked in Oklahoma, and struck gold in California. He became an authority in personal development, a popular professional speaker, and an author of several successful books on sales, business strategy, and career achievement.

Here is Part 1 from his brilliant article on the power of our beliefs and belief systems, with Part 2 and Part 3 appearing on Monday:

Nobody is without a religion, nobody (a paraphrase of Jewish philosopher Dennis Prager). All people have a belief system. That system tells them what is good and right, and what is bad and wrong. All belief systems have “sins” too, things you are condemned for doing or not doing.

Christianity has the shortest list of sins, but Christianity forgives. Yes, it’s true.

Accusatory and Unforgiving

In the religion of ‘Woke’ supremacy, an ever-growing list of sins are unforgivable. In fact, many such sins ‘are stamped into your being’ without your awareness and cannot be resolved, removed, or fully atoned for, such as ‘white privilege’ or ‘systemic racism.’

Law enforcement, the U.S. Constitution, mathematics, “flesh tone” band aids, personal compliments, and chivalry, of late, are inherently bigoted concepts of white supremacy or sexism. The ‘Woke’ seek to erase history so that only they get attention and so that now is the only time that matters.

While legions of the challenges facing humanity were resolved before the members of the ‘Woke’ mob we were born, they demand that we start again, since everyone who preceded us were stained by the wrong belief system. So, whatever our forebearers learned or discovered or developed, or gave their life for, is to be ignored.

Are books part of history? If they were written before now they are based on the past, so all books should be burned or banned. (Does this sound like Nazi Germany?)

Wrong on So Many Levels

The first clue that the ‘Woke’ are on the wrong path is this: They respond to challenges or questions by making personal attacks on the challengers, or labeling them as not worthy of being heard. When ideas can’t be openly debated and discussed then something is askew. Good ideas can stand up to scrutiny.

Predictably, some people will attack me for this article, not the ideas within it. It’s what children do when they don’t have a response. They call you names and say, “I hate you!”

Another tactic of the ‘Woke’ destructive mindset is to ignore all of what you say or do, except for the one item they feel they can attack. It’s like a pack of wolves going after a herd of elk. They don’t launch a frontal attack. They bite the hind leg of the last elk in the herd to weaken him. Then when the elk falls behind the others, the wolves surround it and kill it.

Some people will pick one item from this article and attack it, seeking to negate the entire narrative.

The Limitation of Science

‘Science-ism’ is the belief that objective reality, its measurement and explanation through the scientific process, is all that exists. Yet, science can’t explain the creation of life. Intercourse doesn’t create babies, but that’s how they are conceived. Some couples never have children. We can’t make life; we can only participate in the process.

To accept science as your belief system, you have to make up something to fill the voids, e.g. have faith in something you cannot see or explain. Even science must have faith about some things.

In the religion of Environmentalism and Climate Change, based on ‘Woke’ thinking, you are either a believer who is willing to strive to remove the stain of your existence on the earth, or you’re a denier who is not to be taken seriously and must be controlled by believers. All things end up being related to the climate.

Current White House policies reflect an enormous emphasis on the religion of Environmentalism, plus a belief that America is so wealthy we can spend all of our money on the repairs and changes that must be made, lest we all die from climate change. AOC, for example, says that we can easily afford to spend 10 trillion dollars.

The climate, however, has never witnessed a time of stasis. It has changed continually since creation. These changes go in long term cycles of 1,500 years or more. We are currently in a long-term cycle of global cooling.

In ‘climate-ism,’ human life is seen as an infection of the earth instead of the highest form of life on earth. “If there were no humans, life on earth would go on just fine.” Okay, human hater, you go first.

Belief is a Choice

The answer to the decades old question, “Why can’t we just get along?” is that some people simply won’t stop trying to control others.

You’re free to believe what you wish. You are not free to interfere with my life and the lives of others who disagree with you. If you are correct, then let’s debate the issue. Prove your case or go your own way.

We each have the freedom to choose the life that works for us without inhibiting others.

Happy Easter, Happy Spring, Happy New Year, Happy Life.
