I always find it funny when Nelson Mandela gets put with the recuperated non-violence heroes. Like, Literally in the long road to freedom (good book you should read it) he straight up just says outright: Non-violence is a tactic that you can only use when the whole world is watching (or words to this affect). HE WAS ARRESTED FOR RUNNING THE GUERILLA WING OF THE ANC!!!! WHICH LATER DESTABILIZED THE REGION SO BAD THAT WHEN THE FIRST ROUND OF SANCTIONS WENT UP THE GOVERNMENT LITERALLY CRUMPLED.

Never Forget (that Nelson Mandela was an actual terrorist)

whichever fucking armchair historians they hired to do straight up Orientalism, I want to fight to the death, because god dammit I want realism in my fascist video game!!!!!

Isn't fucked up that in Crusader Kings 2 Islamic rulers have a decadence meter, while Christen rulers do not?

Firefox admits they will eventually be sending all of your DNS to Cloudflare. Cloudflare will monetize your internet browsing, no matter how much their PR people say they are.

If you want to disable that, go to "about:config", and set "network.trr.mode" to 5.

The values are: 0 - default off, 1 - race, 2 TRR first, 3 TRR only, 4 shadow, 5 off by choice

Also Tehanu By Ursula K LeGuin, which is a great work in Feminist lit, but also entirely about farmers

I just remembered another thing that's 100% peasant fiction- The Wizard of Oz, since its a heavy handed allegory for the populist movement

Now introducing: peasant fiction!
Explore the magical worlds of dirt farmers and serfs! Marvel at the painstakingly well world build agriculture systems with no other focus in the narrative! Grin foolishly as the main antagonist turns out to be a weevil infestation yet again!!

I wish American education actually covered the gilded age in detail rather then just lightly touching on the accession of Grant, the killing Garfield, and McKinley's wars. I mean that's what they teach you about in AP US History, I don't imagine that the normal less standardized classes even touch on that.

This is all such a shame because we very clearly are slipping into a second gilded age, complete with wacko politicians, a demobilized public, and people who have been driven insane with the amount of wealth they accumulated. The silicon valley types grow fancy facial hair, wear top hats, and seem to just generally copy that eras aesthetic.

I cant wait for a Muller Investigation follower to assassinate Cory Booker after he wins the presidency.
