the one thing europoors got correct was conscription

So here's the thing, feudalism really only works in this age if there's no foreign influence.

2017-06-24 00:46:40 UTC  

What disgusts me is how Republicans are being blamed for people dying without healthcare coverage when those people shouldn't have had half-assed healthcare coverage and should have died in the first place.

2017-06-24 00:46:53 UTC  

I've had liberal friends go to Europe and come back advocating conscription

2017-06-24 00:46:53 UTC  

republicans are gay

2017-06-24 00:46:55 UTC  

It gets really easy for a country that subscribes to it to be influenced.

2017-06-24 00:46:57 UTC  

the normie narrative is powerful

2017-06-24 00:47:29 UTC  

After all, you only need but replace parts of the monarchy/ruling class.

2017-06-24 00:47:53 UTC  

I'm kind of in favor of having to work for the rights of a citizen through civil service, not simply being born with them

2017-06-24 00:48:10 UTC  

Even though that is corruptible

2017-06-24 00:48:16 UTC  

Monarchy literally eminates tradition throughout the country

2017-06-24 00:48:27 UTC  

It is a beacon for family values and traditions

2017-06-24 00:48:44 UTC  

Unless its the English Crown

2017-06-24 00:48:44 UTC  

Yes it can be corrupt, but corrupt monarchies never live long

2017-06-24 00:49:16 UTC  

I like the idea of one not being a citizen until they do a sweden-style 1 year service

2017-06-24 00:49:28 UTC  

at age 18 for natural-born citizens

2017-06-24 00:49:44 UTC  

I like the idea that nobody is a citizen unless you go through military service

2017-06-24 00:49:59 UTC  

Kind of like how it is in the book "Starship Troopers"

2017-06-24 00:50:05 UTC  

because then being a citizen actually matters

2017-06-24 00:50:17 UTC  

yeah like that, even though it's a satire

2017-06-24 00:50:26 UTC  

The book isn't satire

2017-06-24 00:50:30 UTC  

The movie is

2017-06-24 00:50:33 UTC  

Read the book

2017-06-24 00:50:34 UTC  

yeah except Starship Troopers was a satire of it

2017-06-24 00:50:37 UTC  


2017-06-24 00:50:41 UTC  

No it wasn;t you cocks

2017-06-24 00:50:44 UTC  

i thought they were both critiques, just on different things

2017-06-24 00:50:51 UTC  

Robert Heinlein believed in those values

2017-06-24 00:50:54 UTC  

The original was written by a literal fascist

2017-06-24 00:51:02 UTC  

the movie was a satire

2017-06-24 00:51:03 UTC  

ahh i see

2017-06-24 00:51:26 UTC  

the movie is still damn good imo, when you're aware of the critique it's hilarious in a weird way

2017-06-24 00:51:28 UTC  

It's kinda like a Space Age Sparta

2017-06-24 00:52:02 UTC  

or the Germanic Legions the Romans used

2017-06-24 00:52:09 UTC  

whatever their fucking name was

2017-06-24 00:52:24 UTC  

Only citizens can vote, and since all citizens went through military service, the government is always hardline fascism/conservatism

2017-06-24 00:52:55 UTC  

still technically democracy ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

2017-06-24 00:53:04 UTC  

just like the DPRK

2017-06-24 00:53:06 UTC  


2017-06-24 00:53:11 UTC  

what could go wrong
