back when all this was starting i was a rabid hypernationalist who joined the marine corps to go blow up some muzzies and spent my community college years making powerpoints on why the iraq war was justified and even necessary for freedom and stuff and showing them in all my classes
it's really interesting ten years later to see how disconnected i am from my 2003 paradigm when i supported those things, and now i have to wonder to what extent the people who still support it (or did back then and won't admit to not having changed) were ideological brethren with me. having been a part of it i can attest to how scary and dangerous those lines of thinking are, and i think it's part of the reason i've become so opposed to the republican party as a whole, as it seems to embody the depth and breadth of every terrible quality i mentioned, all the while masquerading as a champion of justice.
an epistemological mindfug, tbh
This is my story almost to the T. Ironic.
