The Index of Greatest Hits

Welcome to the Index.
I’ve been planning to compile a collection of links to the best posts on this blog so that new visitors can easily find the best content here. This will be periodically updated and placed in the “Quicklinks” sidebar.
An Open Letter to Leland Yee and the Supreme Court This is an important post. In response to Schwartzenegger v. EMA, I wrote this open letter defending gaming.
In Defense of Gaming: The Most Misunderstood Medium Meditations on Gaming
Nerds and Popularity: A Social Analysis This site received nearly fifty-pageviews in the evening that this post was published. Receiving nearly ten likes on Facebook, this is quite possibly the best post on the blog.
Islamophobia Another one of my social analyses on religion.
Problems with Religious Fundamentalism, this post introduced new formatting making the site considerably easier to read and enjoy.
Commercialism in Education An important blog post addressing oft-ignored norms in the lunch rooms.
An Open Letter to Steve Jobs I have no problem with advertising. But when advertising causes problems in the lives of people, I am deeply disturbed.
More Letters This post was written during a phase of intense animosity towards proposition 8. I compiled letters to create a collage of vocal opposition.
Eight Years in Retrospect My retrospective on the Bush-era and growing up in it.
Photography and Freedom of Expression An early blog post, this was my first insertion into questioning the answers.
Authenticity and Phoniness After a summer of studying philosophy at CTY, I wrote this essay. While I admit that as a thinker and writer I have matured since then, and that this comes off as primitive compared to my more recent posts, there is value in knowing where I came from as a thinker.
Censorship of Catcher in the Rye I am very humiliated to bring up this post. This was the very first real blog post I ever wrote. The thinking within is truly primitive and flawed. The writing is convoluted and a chore to understand. The logic remains weak and riddled with angst. The only reason that I retain it is to acknowledge the radical changes within myself that I have seen over the years.
An Open Letter to Senator Leland Yee and the US Supreme Court Regarding the EMA case and the possible restrictions on violent games
Discussing the EMA Case with Senator Yee Coffee with one of the most important detractors of Violent Games
Morality in Video Games One of the longest and most extensively peer reviewed articles on the site. But also one of the best.
Thank you!
