Fear and creativity cannot exist in the same space.
Please treat below as a simple exercise in logic.
I believe this is a truism that is demonstrated in every chess game that has ever been played. And I believe almost all chess officials know this.
So after being in chess for as long as they have; after observing as many chess games as they have; I can only conclude that they must be trying to terrorise small kids for only one of two reasons. Either they are doing this intentionally to cripple their game or they must be incredibly stupid.
And if they are doing this intentionally they should not be officials. If they are stupid they should also not be officials. Not so long as the goal is to bring up strong chess players.
Creativity is necessary for good chess. Fear and creativity cannot exist in the same space. Therefore strong chess players and stupid officials also cannot exist in the same space.
It's as simple as that. Now do you understand why MCF will never be able to bring up strong chess players under the current climate and regime?
