I love how people bicker about accuracy in fantasy shows.

That's logically flawed. The Kardashians didn't write a book 172 years ago that we still talk and argue about; their names aren't tied to a governmental system that millions of people throughout history have attached themselves to. Karl Marx isn't and wasn't a pop culture sensation; he's an extremely historically important person. And I said nothing about positive contributions, because thinking about history in only negatives and positives is lazy and assigns value judgements to people and events we know nothing about. If you're analyzing history, you talk about how your topic affected others and their feelings on it, otherwise that analysis becomes more about you than the topic.

They so badly want the Democrats to be as bad as the Republicans that they make up stories and narratives under the guise of "just asking questions."

The fact that we still talk about Marx proves his importance. He was the first person to tie history, philosophy, and economics together to create a dialectic that focused on the people rather than industry. He shined a light on the cruelty of the capitalist system of the time and offered (admittedly fuzzy) solutions. His major downside is that he was supremely vague: so many communist movements were based off interpretation and using Marx's words against himself. Overall, he pushed a social conscience that wasn't readily apparent before.

Logic and emotion are not antithetical. The weird logic stans that think being a cold machine will somehow make them a superior being miss out on the human element of it all.

The 90s were a wild time, where having a well paying, stable job made you go crazy.

For me, Supernatural is the epitome of the CW show: it has a baseline of competence and it's best episodes are really good, but I kinda forget about it after a while and don't have any desire to watch it again.

It's funny how all the climate deniers don't see the potential economic upside of getting in in the ground floor of something like this.

Education and healthcare are in the places they are because some genius came up with the idea to squeeze as much money out of them as possible. We are so used to being fleeced that we all just kind of collectively shrug our shoulder and say "what else are we gonna do."

I know one of them is Ocasio-Cortez, but I don't think any of them are Harris.

Individual liberty is a core aspect of any successful governmental system, but so is taking care of the most vulnerable and creating a baseline of services available to all.

Trust me, I've read a lot of history on the Soviet Union and the communist movements. I'm being mostly facetious about this, but it's impossible not to look at our current system and wonder if there is a better way to do all this. I'm not advocating for Soviet style communism in the least though. That shit don't work.

Yeah, but Ollie North hasn't changed. He's a warhawk shill and the guy who got a pardon from Reagan.

I wonder how many "nobody is forcing you to work there" and "maybe learn a trade" this is going to get.
