The MSM has been giving Russell the shits, so the New Adventures sees him offloading on News Corpse, Trump and front page editorials, and lamenting the MSM’s need to appear ‘objective’. With almost everyone home and playing computer games, Russell rejects his ‘sensible gene’ and decides to join in with an old RPG, Bards Tale (the reboot), and offers his take on gaming addiction and some advice about playing creatively. There’s also a segment about the importance of planning – whether it’s planning one’s consumption of books, bringing up children, or running a country. The best planning involves gentle guidance, democracy and knowing when to let go. In other words – good leadership. As Lao Tzu says, the best leaders are those whose presence is hardly felt, because the people are able to govern themselves.
