  80. Men Reject University Event:
  81. Rising Gender Equality, Wokeness (i.e. number of American Liberals, like how BLM protests become more likely, with the number of Liberals present), positive discrimination, lack of resources to stay in Uni (unlike provisions made for minorities and women), Demonization (real or perceived, such as, all men are rapists, or all men are aggressors, racists, etc.), virtually no men’s colleges remaining, student debt, expense, poverty and a drive to self-sufficient/independent inculcated from a young age, socially ingrained role of provider, etc. makes college age men in the US drop-out from University. Women now make up 60% of all students in US Universities. I’m not taking a stance on this, I’m merely describing the various factors present which make men, or men convince themselves to leave Uni. Men leaving Uni hurts both women and men. Men have lower job opportunities in the future, even if they can earn now, women among other things have lower mate quality and less like-minded people to speak to, they can also choose to leave Uni, which can hurt their careers too (increases unemployment) (this event will provide a drawback, i.e. balancing for gender equality in game).

  1. Electric Car Transition should reduce pollution and respiratory disease at a greater percentage than car usage to balance out the effects.
  2. Bug, when I click on the religious group in Japan, through the Religious Banknotes policy it subtracts political capital.
  3. Citizenship for sale does not upset Patriots.
  4. Comfort/development/HDI should increase polarization?
  5. Plane Crash Event should show up in the mod maker.
  6. Individualistic countries should have a higher base for mental illness (depersonalization-derealization)
  7. As we’re more and more successful, opposition parties move closer and closer to our position, but in voter’s eyes, what distinguishes them?

socialist internet

Check out the Soviet OGAS, which if it had worked (by support from the state), would’ve marked the birth of the internet by a full 6-7 years before ARPANET (potentially)!

And not to forget the early 70s efforts of the Chilean socialists to create a socialist internet! :slight_smile:
