incredible how Americans keep seeing movies, music and shows from South Korea that are sharp and unsubtle critiques of capitalism and saying "wow this is like North Korea" and "I wonder what they're so mad about over there"

"essentially we all live in the same country, called capitalism." -- Bong Joon Ho, saying the loud part louder


@InternetEh is “Confucianism” a dismissive buzz word for all things Asian like “hysteria” was for women in the early 1900s?

@sweetmercury @InternetEh no, it'd because white people jack off to Confucius because you can sort of read him as a centrist and that's liberal enough for Amerika.
So of course the US gets angry and confused when Asian people don't read Confucius, and we question if he is actually the Asian Jesus we thought he was.
