What is the next big essential service governments in the future will provide for their citizens?
"With healthcare strangling every government in the free world" Well, that simply isn't true. Take Sweden for example, we're doing great even in these hard times and we do have universal healthcare. Besides, he isn't talking about any country in particular so I don't know why you're so up in arms about it. There are definitely a lot of people that do think that redistribution is a good thing, and I certainly believe that the world would be a better place of there are more choices of countries to live in that only capitalist states with a small government.

I think you're view of gaming is odd and completely wrong. I am indeed a gamer myself, and yes, math based games is definitely something I think people would play if done right. Stating that "you feel good while playing but bad afterwards" is something that is completely alien to me, and to me seems that you have a really odd relationship to games and continue to spit out bold statements based on nothing (such as "You can't make a fun educational game", which in fact is wrong, as I've played fun educational games).

Are you stating that gaming use less parts of the brain than doing nothing at all? I'm sorry, but to make such extraordinary claims I think you better back that up with some sources. I also think that you're notion that games and education are opposite elements is plain wrong. In fact, I recommend that you listen so Salman Khans speech from this years TED, where among other things, he mentions that something as simple as gaming's ideas of highscores and achievements is proving very efficient. I don't think that there are any reasons to think that other elements of gaming is worthless. In the end, gaming is about simulation of real world elements. Personally I think that to believe that we can't use that to teach is absurd, as it already is a vital part of education today and always has been.

Just because they're forums doesn't mean they aren't games too. Text based role playing games is hardly news, and though they might not be very popular anymore, they're still very much games and relevant in this discussion. What type of game it is doesn't really matter in initial steps of research of this form. In fact, I think that type of game is a perfect fit for early experiments, as it's cheap, easy to maintain and very barebones.
