what the fuck is Warren talking about we dont need more people in the military we have the biggest standing army in human history also everyone i know who served either had their life ruined or died


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

valorizing and fetishizing the military as a unifying social force is literally fascist

at the rate warren is drifting right she is going to be calling for constitutional reform that makes it that only the military can vote in about one month

@Cyborgneticz @dankwraith army corps of engineers? Have you considered...engineers

@dankwraith Elizabeth Warren: Would you like to know more?

@dankwraith Big πŸ‘ Structural πŸ‘ Lebensraum πŸ‘

@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 "Oh wow, you also help people after natural disasters? Thats great, I bet you could actually make an honest living at that!"

@unlofl @dankwraith I felt like I got the same thing out of doing Americorps tbh

@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.
