i thought everyone got it? It was, like, pretty damn blatant about it?

like, it's a fascist government indoctrinating youth and demanding military service from them before it grants them full citizen status then throwing them into a meat grinder.
it's not at all subtle. it basically turns to camera every few minutes and goes “you are getting this, right?” basically bashes you over the head with it.

were there people actually sitting there going “now THIS is how a society should be run”?
actually, looking at america right now, yeah there actually were, weren't there?

mind you, people didn't seem to get robocop either, which does the same thing for the interactions between capitalism, gentrification, and police brutality

Show thread

might have to rewatch robocop and starship troopers actually. they're good films.

but yeah, media literacy is apparently a thing we should teach kids more then we currently do.
there's a reason the right dislikes the social sciences

Show thread

watching robocop now, and the advert for 'family heart center' comes on and holy fucking shit its on the nose about capitalism and healthcare straight out of the door

Show thread

@FuchsiaShock I recently rewatched that. It felt really intense considering the state of things.
