Problem is none of us can agree on what tyranny is.

As long as there is ample supply circuses and bread, the people will comply.

“Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

That’s my definition. We aren’t there yet, but lord knows we’re headed down that path.

Also, that we're all so divided, on so many levels. We divide ourselves on race, religion, political alignment, social class, economic class, etc. They had the vaxed and the unvaxed hating each other. Hell, we even argue about what generation we're a part of. Lots of Boomers hate Gen X, both hate Millennials, and likewise, Millennials hate Gen X and Boomers. We shouldn't even be called the United States anymore. We've never been so divided.

Should we start with "nobody can legitimately earn a billion dollars" and add on "if you think taxation is theft wait until you learn where profit comes from"?

It's disappointing that Americans shit on the French because of what happened nearly a century ago, then rest on their own laurels while oiling their 1911 and chanting back to back, world war champs. Meanwhile the French go into country wide rebellion over speed cameras without organizing, just an innate sense of injustice, and regularly strike against working conditions. Meanwhile docile Americans are allowing the systematic dismantling of the bill or rights while bitching from their keyboards. What have we become

A lot of the anti-French sentiment came after 1963, when the French Prime minister said he wanted all American troops out of France… To which JFK famously responded, “Even the ones buried in the ground?

The ruling socialist party in France (along with a popular communist party) taking such a hard line against the US was a seen as an insult to Americans who liberated them from Nazi Germnay not even 20 years prior…

I can’t upvote this enough. My partner and I often lament that America is populated by armchair experts and keyboard warriors; that very few truly carry a banner for their cause (2A or otherwise)—especially if it requires much effort or more than a clicks on a screen. Where as many other countries, especially the French, won’t hesitate to rebel. Heck the French have been actively revolting, guerrilla-style and in the courtroom, to remove billboards. The US system would have you locked up before you could even conspire to remove the capitalistic eyesores.

I'm an American, I jump anybody who rags on the French in my presence. They would've been glassed in WW2 had they resisted more than they already did, and they did resist a lot with guerilla warfare against the Nazi invaders throughout their occupation. They also served as spies and fed intel to the British and eventually Americans.

As others mentioned we would've been 200% boned in the Revolutionary War without the French, and they fight their government all the time. It was the French philosophy of *laissez faire* that the forefathers founded our country upon.

The French have a lot in common with what Americans should be.

Meh, the French have worked hard for their reputation over the centuries. It’s one thing to recognize their awesomeness in some time slots but also fun to laugh at them for other reasons. Things don’t need to be all or nothing — it’s okay to entertain multiple ideas that are in tension with each other, especially with the French.

France regularly fucks with their international obligations, like withdrawing from NATO, to deal with internal political problems. They regularly sell weapons and otherwise embargoed items to our enemies. They are certainly not our friends and have not been for some time.
