like 30 years ago being a serious "radical" meant plotting to overthrow governments or commit acts of terrorism or something.
today it's just a competition between self-obsessed weirdos to see who can be the most neurotic, autistic narcissist.
dissidents in the 1970s were like hijacking planes & flying them to cuba or starting militias & stuff…kidnapping sports teams, etc..
dissidents in [the current year] are just cosmopolitan racists that regurgitate toxic rhetoric made "safe" & chic for expression by ideologues within media & academia.
Working my way through the 1960's quarterly reports on the Saturn program ( https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBEXDPatoWBlU0OxJtdJpXSq2BAdviTPb ) and I've realized that the Saturn I *isn't* the Saturn V without the first heavy lifting stage. It's an almost completely different rocket with a similar profile and paint job.
NASA built and launched 10 of them to learn stuff, but it never really had a mission. (Outside of "compete with the Russians in lift capability). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saturn_I

Also, last thing I'm gonna' rant about: you guys can have friends & know people who don't subscribe to your point of view. So many of ya'll act like religious zealots who can't even socialize with people who aren't apart of the faith. Not everything has to be political or esoteric psuedoacademic bullshit. You can have normie conversations with normie friends like normies do. Not everything/everyone need be criticized or attacked or scrutinized.
Have a beer with some friends & just vibe out.
