Genghiz Cohen, known as Cohen the Barbarian, is the Discworld's greatest warrior hero, renowned across the Disc for his exploits rescuing maidens, destroying the mad high priests of dark cults, looting ancient ruins, and so on.
The greatest problems Cohen faces come from outliving the heroic age and finding himself in a civilised modern world where great battles and astonishing rescues happen rarely except in stories -- which is ironic given that the Discworld runs on narrative.
This was intended to be a sort of retirement plan, but it did not last and Cohen and his chums abandoned the Empire in The Last Hero, in which Cohen decides to express his displeasure with the modern world by "returning fire to the gods".

 Stripping the Gurus—Sometimes I Feel Like a God
When Cohen was sixteen years old, he experienced a spontaneous expansion of consciousness “in all directions simultaneously” into infinite space, along with a “revelation” concerning the interconnectedness and inseparability of all life.
Cohen eventually split from his own guru, Poonja, upon learning of various indiscretions in the master’s conduct, including his having reportedly fathered a child via a blond, Belgian disciple.
This, then, is Cohen’s apparent worldview: His own stepping into the path of an oncoming vehicle has no cause, and therefore no responsibility, truly making him a “victim.” But severe mental illness afflicting others is to be overcome by an acceptance of responsibility from which he himself explicitly shrinks.

Barbarian Versus is the game to replicate this sort of thing, though you play loincloth-wearing sandalled muscleheads instead of tin cans on horseback.
There is no canon list of barbarian clans or groups, which is also a welcome shift from certain games that shall not be named where you can only be an X, a Y or a Z if you want to fit in.
Personally I don't know if I'd play a Barbarians Against Green Aliens game, because I'm thinking that with a minimum of hassle it could be converted into the Discworld Hero game, where the characters follow in the footsteps of Cohen the Barbarian.

Cohen's "shtick" consists of his alter egos---Ali G, a very white "fl" British TV host, Borat, a "Kazakhstani" TV narrator, and BrĂ¼no, a "gay Austrian" TV host---roaming the world making fools of everyone.
To the Cohen's of the world stupid people (in other words all we ordinary folks going about our business) serve only one purpose: to be brought low for the amusement of the-all-knowing mob.
Polite southern fundamentalists are fair game but Cohen didn't go to Mecca and interview pilgrims about the sex life of Muhammad or run naked down the streets of Medina.

One presumes Cohen is talking about a culture of governmental acceptance, perhaps driven by a successful government-worshipping ideology.
Either way, if he helps bring out our views and publicize them, such as the attitudes of Cohen the Barbarian, and the people of Lancre, and the hundreds of background comments making a mockery of the centralized government edifice, I'll take that, if that's all that's on offer.
