Things like this post were in my children’s books. We had iconography of a vaguely majestic bald middle-aged male in every house, His statues in every town no matter how tiny. we had food rationing at times, and "deficit" was a household word heard daily, and anaesthesia for minor surgical operations in kids was considered unnecessary. nobody really worked (like, really.)

then my country collapsed, and we found out we didn’t actually have to live like that, we could just PAY for better food AND for that anaesthesia. we’d find the money for both somehow. (this is still true even while we progressively slide back into “good old times” )

when you talk about “socialism” being the cure to all Cap ills, you do have a magical recipe against “socialism” turning your country into a one huge militaristic half-prison-half-refugee-camp piece of shit, right? right? haha j/k nope

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
