Chapter 8. Coda: Ethical Considerations > Groups of Players as Groups of People

Groups of Players as Groups of People

If someone makes a statement with which you disagree, you might want to take issue with them. There are social norms that dictate how far you can go with your riposte—verbal abuse warrants in the first instance only a verbal defense, for example. Although this can get out of hand, on the whole it works. If an individual says something, then other people can challenge them about it.

What if it's not the individual who makes the statement but an organization of which the individual is a member? If a political party issues a general pronouncement, then that announcement is on behalf of the party's members. If you disagreed, you could reasonably expect to bring it up with any members of that party you knew, to take them to task. Sure, they might not agree either, but what to do about it then becomes their problem.
