A really interesting and somewhat touching insight into the mindset of BNI. For me, these statements echo a lot of the sentiment that makes me feel good about being in BNI. Despite my previous criticisms, I really do feel like BRAVE and HERO are what works for a lot of people. There are a lot of people who have been critical of BNI or felt like they’re losing sight of what makes BNI great, or spinning a narrative highlighting what they think is wrong. But so many appear to have failed to realize why BNI is a necessary organization, this recording highlights some of the base psychology that drives this idea.
I think Kira was able to convey the idea perfectly, “We play this game because we made friends. . .because we feel at home.”. At the end of the day no matter how many truckloads of spaceships we blow up fighting each other, we’re all in this together. A wonderful sentiment to convey. That despite the coldness of space and the harsh nature of warfare in EVE, players can still come together and find friendship and fun in this weird little spaceship game.
