youd think that a hundred years would be long enough that we could admit the propaganda was a lie and world war one was not in fact about defending our freedoms and i dont think ive ever actually seen anyone claim otherwise before david frum just contrarianishly saying here that tucker carlson is wrong for expressing an opinion that would be entirely unremarkable if it was being said by anyone except tucker carlson

That said, I have come back around to believing that the United States did win World War 1. Just not in the "we saved the day" sense, but in the "we avoided most of the war came out in a stronger position in the end" sense

There's about one of these among the Canadian news media giants every couple of months. They are always super long and boring and obviously written for an audience in the dozens to be brought up in Parliament. It's the sort of stuff that belongs in some niche magazine for neolibs, but print media for that sort of stuff is dead in Canada so you end up finding it stuffed in between celeb news.

Trends on Twitter even though the engagement on them is really poor. I WONDER WHY.

Canadian Twitter had that article about mennonites living in Xinjiang trending all day the other week even though the only tweets I could find at all commenting on it was someone pointing out that the mennonites in question had a history of loony poo poo and the articles byline also wrote for epoch times

A Seattle police officer and a trainee walked into Chocolati on N. 45th Street in the Wallingford neighborhood on Tuesday afternoon at 4:30 PM looking for a snack. According to their website, "Chocolati was established in the year 2003 with the philosophy of making delightful chocolate confections that were both aesthetically creative and of the highest quality."

According to sources in SPD with knowledge of the events, the employee behind the register finished serving the customer in front of the officer. The officer then walked up to the register to order. The employee, a white female with green streaks in her hair, ignored the officer.
When the officer got her attention, he asked for a box of chocolates and the employee said, "No, I won’t serve you."

The officer and the trainee left Chocolati, whose website claims that their “goal is to grow at a steady pace without compromising the quality and the personal attention we give to our customers and to our chocolates.”

The Post Millennial contacted Chocolati for comment and a store employee answered the phone. Upon informing the employee of the purpose of the call, the employee said to The Post Millennial, "Is this how you want to spend your time? Getting essential workers in trouble?"
The employee continued, "Shouldn’t you be spending your time harassing homeless people?"

In response, The Post Millennial suggested leaving a number for the owner or manager, to which the employee responded, "You really want to spend your time getting essential workers in trouble?"
The Post Millennial then said that we would attempt to reach the owner or manager another time. The employee agreed that would be preferable and then added, "…and go F*** yourself."


"My word! Your website claims not to have compromised your customer service, but I can see now that it's nothing but malarkey!"

I'm not sure what having 4 million teens removed from the economy and wider society is going to do for anyone. Thankfully the NYT opinion board hasn't made that point either, just that going Clockwork Orange with words like Civics and Social Norms flashed before these youths seems very critical.

it's a favorite take among a certain flavor of wealthy, powerful liberal who were privileged enough to attend ivy league schools as a matter of course, but not privileged enough to get fast-tracked through the application process with a million-dollar donation from daddy

they typically take a short excursion from their privileged bubble to go do some kind of community service activity for a couple weeks so they can put it on the extracurriculars section of their college application

they fondly imagine that this brief descent from their ivory tower lifestyles, often the only time they've ever seen a poor person in their life, has enormously enriched their experience and made them a cultured expert of the people who fully understands the troubles of the lower classes

You can tell that they have no loving clue what they're talking about when they start banging on about how vets look back on their years of involuntary service in Vietnam with fondness.

Yeah dude, my dad tried to unionize his workplace, lost the vote, and then got shitcanned by his boss for being an organizer and was immediately drafted into the Army and sent off to Vietnam. Nothing but fond loving memories there.

i checked out that essay they cite as their case for national service

it's a pre-WWI screed about how war is necessary for humans to reach their full potential, and that strife and conflict are necessary to provide the motivation for humans to engage in unpleasant labor without silly and unrealistic things like "high wages" or "decent working conditions"

it's a very late-Victorian piece claiming that although war is horrible and awful, only harsh military discipline or a deeply patriotic fervor are capable of motivating people to contribute to society, so pacifists need to push for an entity that emulates the virtues of militarist culture in order to prevent the inferior classes from degenerating and stimulate the spiritual energies of the nation

lol that the NYT is citing that with only a brief note about how the essay's focus on "manly virtues" and its constant railing against "cosmopolitan industrialism" is outdated
