Video games have been around for 40 years

I'm still surprised when a women says she likes video games.

after 40 years of change, you gotta think it's something more then gender roles.

There's something else going on.

Which, to be clear, relates back to women doing geek things.

The ones that get past that and decide to go into a techy field anyway rapidly discover that CS and IT fields are usually a hostile environment for women.


I've met a few women who did CS and tech stuff, and they held onto their jobs for quite a few years, so I don't think it's as wide spread as you point out.

Mercantilism is the economic doctrine that government control of foreign trade is of paramount importance for ensuring the prosperity and military security of the state. In particular, it demands a positive balance of trade. Mercantilism dominated Western European economic policy and discourse from the 16th to late-18th centuries.


Which is opposed to capitalism, which says the government should stay out.

Before that was feudalism, which is an economic and political theory in which only the rich are the aristocrats.

You really should read up on these things.
