    in the post. I am curious about how agents make choices about what constitutes fair use for a game. In fact, I assume no malice all, these are likely folks trying to teach kids some history. That having been said, popular culture and these types of "educational" projects do political work.

    Dig deeper.

      ... on the site?  I'd be interested in hearing your opinion after scanning what the educators thought 4th graders should know before they actually "played" the game.  Some of the exercises seem pretty terrible from my point of view, i.e., looking at slavery from the point of a slave-owner, and I can't quite figure out how the authors are presenting Liberia in the context of the lesson plans or the game.

      I'd be interested in your take.

      I haven't been here long enough to be considered a Kossack, does that mean that I'm just a sack?
