Now you're getting it. And of course any time you might prove to them they are wrong, they react with a white hot fury because to entertain your point might prove they aren't a good person. If they've been really bad, it might even prove them to be bad.Ironically if these people developed a more genuine appreciation of nerd culture they would learn the good a vivid fantasy life can do for a person and stop tilting at the windmills of their political bullshit.
Because that's all this shit boils down to, it's just something to do with their lives, it's exciting to roleplay as a brave freedom fighter and pretend you're in Jim Crow America or Nazi Germany instead of face the boring reality that you're just one of millions living a comfortable life in a first world country where all the serious issues of survival like food, water and shelter are solved.
Not to mention people like Chuck, getting by on ideology, not talent. He certainly can't entertain the notion he's profiting off all this - that would make him an even worse monster!
