what have your discussions been about, Isaac
Mostly the future of america and the riots.
I knew if I ever burned a flag of any kind my parents would whip me up and down the street.
But we also talk about how the majority of the time that the most violent ones are the ones with least to argue with.
As well as ways to keep safe.
An armed angry dumbass is a scary angry dumbass.

Thank you guys for keeping me company before i have to lesve for work
giving people freedom
expectations: they will use it to become monks with artistic gitfs
reality: they will use it to do beer and drugs
despite Zizek's many flaws
he has a good point when he talks about real vs. fake freedom
Zizek's priority is being socially acceptable
I don't mean to bump Zizek. I'm just saying that "freedom" can mean different things and sometimes the freedom we get isn't really the freedom we want

Do you guys think 27 is too old to join the military...
Should I reconsider my path...
no i don't know
They have age cut offs
I think 25 is considered old to first apply
It depends what branch

Army and Navy are 34/35 so I still have time... I wouldn't be enlisting either. I feel guilty about going through life as a civilian. I feel like I'm missing out on something shitty but ultimately irreplaceable.
Like in high school when you were stuck at a track meet for twelve hours in the heat getting sunburned and shit but you wanted to be there anyway to hang out with your buddies.
I'd rather work on U.S soil.
No offense, but I want to pay back what this country has given me. But I know if I could, I would.
I guess I would be useful doing other things.
"the freedom we get isn't really the freedom we want" the freedom itself is an entirely spiritual, inner condition
if one tries to become free through some kind of external machinations, he reaches insurmountable barriers
Sure. I would agree with your statement. But there is also, for example, the "school choice" illusion. If you are given the choice to send your children to any of 10 shitty schools, what kind of freedom is that? Is it more "free" than having only one, good school to send your children to?
