funny that you mentioned that because the Starship Troopers book was on the commandant's reading list when I was a boot.If you ever want to see this hokey, romanticized, gung ho, US war culture satirized in film check out the brilliant science fiction satire movie Starship Troopers. It nails it so precisely that most movie goers didn't pick up on that they were watching a satire and enjoyed it as a straight space adventure. It is absolutely a masterpiece, brilliant in every respect. You might even recognize your young self in the idealistic young brainwashed patriots as they ship off into outer space to fight the dirty, evil bug planet.
Mind blown okay.
Do they understand it's satire, ie antiwar?
Well maybe just the first 15 minutes, then you can put it on your watch later group.I'm not watching a YouTube video. I grew up in NY and was there for most of Trump's life in the public eye. He was one of many realtors who dealt with the mob and the teamsters to get his name on contracts and mostly only made big ticket projects that ripped up whole portions of the city and turned them into luxury housing to accommodate the financial services industry (most of whom live outside NYC anyway). Most of what he contributed to NY was keeping tabloids like the Daily News and the NY Post busy covering his various marital scandals, discrimination cases, and ceaseless self promotion. He paid to make sure his name and face were everywhere and he's still doing that in a way, except now he's got a whole apparatus of government, a political party, lobbyists, and a few media outlets to also promote his brand. It's like being in the White House is his ultimate MLM scam. Of all the people with a wtf reaction to Trump, New Yorkers have it the worst because we can't believe one of our home grown grifters escaped the asylum. For most of us, he's in the same category as squeegee men.
It certainly can be taken that way. As I said, most movie goers back then seemed to enjoy it as a straight sci fi space adventure.They don't recognize their own society. And the original novel by Robert Heinlein was definitely a fascist science fiction story.wouldn't be surprised if some of them took it seriously. there are whole bunch of lifers.
Completely agree. Yanks have a ton of problems with their own country, fix yourselves before sticking your nose in to other countries business.Personally, I'm tired of keeping up on every group on earth and their history of wars and uprisings.
It's my opinion as of now, Trump is making moves/counter moves; trying to get countries to jump off sides.
It makes sense since China and Russia's significant rise in power over the 10+ years.
Turks are imbalanced nuts and looking to powerplay the region while the superpowers volley over which club they should join.
That said, and with the weariness over picking sides over 100 countries and determine justice globally, I'm content to mind our own gawtdamn business as we should have decades ago.
If the globalists truly want to impose their version of morality over the planet in the name of social utopia, let the virtue-signaling eurotrash take their resolution to the UN and we'll see who jumps on board.
As it stands, we can't protect our own fucking borders, and we've got a media-induced information war dividing our own country to deal with.
