Jesus, Mary, Joseph! We fleetingly mentioned those Tax Day Tea Parties yesterday, but this is too much. That’s right: Tea Parties in Second Life, the game that, um, is still popular? (Not a lot of buzz about it these days, I mean to say.) Anyway, here’s a few photos of the in-game protest about in-real-life issues. Because that’s how minds are changed, in online video games. Or don’t you remember the Republican National Convention in Stormwind last year?
My thoughts: if you’re so upset about the issues of the day, why not actually protest? Did Robespierre register his disgust with Versailles by flying around virtual worlds? (Never mind that virtual world didn’t exist back then. The point is that this whole thing is silly.)
