“Hatred and prejudice will never be eradicated. And witch hunts will never be about witches.”

From: The Witcher, specifically, The Witcher III: Wild Hunt

Genre: Video Games

Who said it?: Geralt of Rivia

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from the video game The Witcher III: Wild Hunt. The games, developed by CD Projekt Red, are based on the books written by Andrzej Sapkowski. You control Geralt of Rivia, a witcher who is one of the few people who have the necessary skills to defeat the magical beasts and evils of the land.

You can only hear the quote by helping Geralt’s old flame, Triss Merigold, and her quest to help the remaining mages of Novigrad to escape the land. If he is successful, the mages do escape but the kingdom then turn their attention to the lesser races and start hunting them down.

Geek wisdom: People fear others who are different than what they are. Whether it be race, color, religion, political alignment or even gender, this fear can be twisted to simply blaming all our woes on who’s not on our side. If we focus on our similarities and not our differences, maybe the world would be a better place.

Most of my childhood (and adult life) was spent doing a lot of geeky stuff: watching TV, playing video games and going to the movies. To some, it may have been a waste of time. Well, to me, it has made me what I am today... a geeky adult. I actually write for a couple of blogs, namely: geekwisdom.wordpress.com 3rdworldgeeks.com gamemoir.com Please check them out!
