the only earnest 9/11 take i'll make is that firefighters rule and if you ever need to argue with capitalists who say that no one would do anything if they couldn't make a bunch of money from it, remind them that people literally volunteer to run into burning buildings to save others without getting any pay

I've got mixed feelings about celebrating firefighters because of the documented cultures of machismo, sexism and racism in many fire fighter units and the impact that has on marginalized people in danger.

But "if you ever need to argue with capitalists who say that no one would do anything if they couldn't make a bunch of money from it, remind them that people literally volunteer to run into burning buildings to save others without getting any pay" is such a YES.
