This is refreshing to see.

It's honestly kind of absurd how much the US military spends on advertising... All of the Jets flying over stadiums, the constant TV ads, the recruiting stations, providing expensive equipment for military movies (but only if they show the military in a positive light )

yup, very refreshing. The fact that it's #1 on saidit/s/all is also proof that the mic's 'perception correctors' still haven't poisoned saidit.

I hope it lasts.

Me too. This is the content that we made saidit for.

It's all the same military-industrial complex though, let's be real

In high school a few years back, we'd routinely have people come over to give speeches on Veteran's Day... and instead of actually talking about veterans and the impacts of war, they straight-out advertised the military for 10 minutes, explaining all the different branches, how to sign up, etc.
