Bizarre idea

Is the process of D&D 5E moving back to its roots itself a kind of populism? I'm loathe to treat gaming as anything but a side note in people's lives, but it does reflect some of the people who play it, and that can be ugly...witness the ugliness of GamerGate.

I float the idea only because it occurred to me and I have no filter, rather than because it's based on deep study or even reading the rules of fifth edition.

(Having floated it, I will now abandon it to sail away from me.)
