“I’m genuinely disturbed at how many people would be willing to fight a world war over Taiwan’s governmental preferences. The power and effectiveness of the imperial propaganda machine never ceases to amaze me. … The astonishing amount of pushback I’m getting for my very sane and normal ‘Let’s not fight World War Three over Taiwan’ position makes it abundantly clear that many people don’t truly understand that starting a war means you have to actually send actual human beings to go fight that war. The correct response to someone who supports going to war if China attacks Taiwan is ‘Are you enlisted?’ The correct response when they inevitably answer ‘no’ is ‘Then shut the fuck up!'” (10/10/21)
