    I mean

    There was this whole thing called the Soviet Union then there was like a missile crisis

    And there was like a group that called themselves National Socialists and they did a genocide and tried to take over a bunch of land by force

    We also had to fight a bunch of talking trees that dug tunnels because military industrial complex and heroin

    It’s definitely many layers of propaganda but as an American I definitely understand WHERE it comes from, I understand why most people here flinch at the word.

    You also gotta understand we had multiple generations in a row huffing lead gasoline so while younger millennials aren’t impacted as bad, MOST Americans are legitimately lead brained.

      It wasn’t just leaded gasoline. I was busy getting hot boxed with cigarettes in my grandparent’s leaded gasoline car before burning some asbestos, plastic cutlery, and batteries in the living room fireplace.

      Forget no seatbelts or bicycle helmets. Our chemical exposure would probably send a younger person without a built up tolerance into instant seizure.

      I also remember crimping down lead shot sinkers on my fishing line with my teeth. Good times. Good times indeed.

      Bruh

      The Nazis were literally IN Europe. The USSR literally built a WALL here splitting the continent. And you’re saying that explains why America is the one with socialism PTSD???

      Ain’t nothing more American than making everything about you I guess.

          But European don’t panic at the mention of socialism (what the comment you’re replying to was talking about) yet the Europeans have suffered FAR MORE from your examples of “socialism” than Americans. You can’t explain away how American politics differ from European politics by appropriating European tragedies.

              But it DOES NOT explain the origins. The USSR and the Nazis are not CAUSES. They CAN’T BE because otherwise Europe would never integrated elements of socialism!

              I think we actually agree on that, it’s just semantics at this point. Whatever.

              Also watch your aggressiveness. I didn’t call you names and I expect the same in return.
