Not Contributing

So I admit the fact that I have to accept a certain level of frustration with the way my money goes to places I don’t like. But the age of Kickstarter brings with it a certain amount of transparency and intimacy that games coming from big companies don’t have. That means that we as consumers and gamers can curate the kind of art and artists we want to succeed—and withholding support in the form of not contributing to Kickstarter campaigns means that we have more direct control over what kind of art populates our world.”

    I have been wrestling with this issue lately with some companies I patronize. I like a great deal about them but disagree with some of their politics and I don’t know how much I should let it influence my decision. I am also struck by the fact that Kickstarter seems to generate this type of objection more than many other commercial activities. I think that people who participate in Kickstarters think they are buying more than just a product, they are building a relationship with these creators, and politics are very much a part of that kind of consideration.
