Something like a group who tries to continue humanity, but only with Pure Americans/Mexicans/Displaced Japanese. By the time the Desert Rangers come upon the group the last two males kill each other leaving a society destined to die. Or a group who set up a "true" Democracy where everyone not only can vote everyone MUST vote. But this leads to a problem whenever some one becomes pregnant. When does the baby get to vote? Does the mother get the baby's vote? What about marriage? Must the entire community agree to the match? Divorce? Can the group elect a representative to meet with outsiders? But what if s/he fails to follow the will of the community? How do trade negotiations with merchants resolve?

You remind me of small minded people who argued that the Earth was flat

It could be funny to have, for example, a character firmly believing the whole apocalypse wasn't a mutual destruction, but say US government orchestrated it all by itself and nukes their own country to inflict a rigid tyranny on citizens and cover up some shit. They can also believe that all other countries are doing well, and it is US govt. who is blocking contact with outside world and preventing their help and intervention. The government itself is sitting in some kind of luxury underground city, manipulating society via proxies, i.e. Desert Rangers who will be feared by conspiracy theorists as government agents.
That's just an example, what I like about conspiracy theories, they are very easy to invent and still sounds exactly like the ones some people actually believe in, despite all the logic flaws in their reasoning

Huh? I read left, center, and right newspapers, not blogs. And I critique all sources. But can you even argue with your Glenn Beck disinformation sources -- do you realize you're being manipulated?
I definitely think that commentary on our current world is *essential* for Wasteland 2. There's just too much amazing material to pass it up (that's my hope, at least).
