the US military is an almost purely evil force and any good that it does could easily be subsumed by literally any other kind of structure that doesnt also indiscriminately murder people
@dankwraith military medics? I bring you doctors beyond borders
@dankwraith Good grief, yes.
@dankwraith Elizabeth Warren: Would you like to know more?
@dankwraith Big 👏 Structural 👏 Lebensraum 👏
@dankwraith well, the existence of "Democratic Socialists" kind of allows for the existence of "Social Nationalist" if you catch my drift. This stems from the idea that "nationalism is a free opinion bonus" (almost as popular as replacing class-struggle with identity conflicts), and historically has led to lots of "fun" (in the dwarf fortress sense).
People should be aware of the history of the PNF to avoid shit like that in the future.
@dankwraith counterpoint: US Army Corp of Engineers built ALL of the infrastructure you use, in particular bridges, waterways, and water reserves
@mngrif how is that a counterpoint. is it impossible for you to imagine an organization that builds stuff without it being part of the military
@mngrif also this isnt even true, a huge amount of american infrastructure was build by alphabet agencies composed of civilians during the great depression
@dankwraith every day I'm glad I silenced qoto
@dankwraith "Oh wow, you also help people after natural disasters? Thats great, I bet you could actually make an honest living at that!"
@dankwraith yes yes yes. similar to how any good deed ever done by a cop certainly didn't involve a gun
@dankwraith does anyone else smell *sniff* white nationalists?
I- hmm. I'm sure it's nothing to be worried about.
