Where things like “freedom” are a sincere part of governmental decision-making, and not just an excuse for a few rich old fucks to hoard more wealth. Where there exists a temporarily flawed but fundamentally good organization in every single city in the country devoted only to keeping the community safe and in harmony. Where the people in charge are truly doing their best to make the lives of the common person better.

If the world worked the way liberals think it does I’d have become a cop straight out of high school, I swear. I still harbor thoughts of trying to become a firefighter, but I’m not sure I’ve got the discipline for it.

I don’t really have a point, I’ve just been chilling and drinking tea and thinking about this. I think this line of thought stemmed from having been mistaken for a cop once or twice and trying to think of exactly the best way to word exactly why I would never in a million years consider it regardless of what you paid me, and thinking about how that concept is kind of hard to understand from a liberal’s point of view. To them, saying “cops are fundamentally bad” is like saying “firefighters are fundamentally bad” or “farmers are fundamentally bad.” In liberal propaganda, cops are just as necessary (and as enduring) as either of those jobs.

    In every major city theres a underserved black section of the city and a white section of the city that is unexplainable or fixable in a liberals worldview.

      hey remember that time some journo leaked that pretty much all of the bourgeoisie are involved in a massive global money laundering and tax avoidance scheme?

    I too have heard the siren call of the Resident Evil alternate universe, where cops do good things and the US government disbands shadowy military contractors that cause huge biological disasters, and everyone is sexy and interesting.

    Was really looking forward to that world as a kid, big blow to learn it doesn’t work like that.

    If you can get in shape to pass a physical once at hiring, the only other dicipline needed is dealing with fucky vibes combo of frathouse/barracks/hunting lodge that every firehouse cultivates like mildew.

    liberals only think we live in this world because there is no self examination of their own ideology

    if there was theyd be communists and anarchists and i dont have a huge preference either way
