In the film Expendables 2, the character Trench, played by Arnold Schwarzenegger, says, “who’s next, Rambo?” which posits a few possibilities for the Expendables Universe:
1. Stallone exists and played Rambo, Barney simply bears a strong resemblance
2. Stallone does not exist and another actor played the titular Rambo in the film franchise
3. Rambo is a real person that Trench believes may arrive to help (resemblance to Stallone unknown)
binaries of the "eploiters" and the "exploited" all too often serve to obscure the totalising nature of coercive structures. we delude ourselves into thinking, if i am poor and meek enough, I will be without guilt
@garfiald jerry: she owns capital. she's a literal capitalist
george: yes, but is she a landlord?
kramer (bursting in): not all capitalists are landlords, jerry
Most cop shows have that thing where the main characters are all really good cops and good people but every other cop is crooked.
Which, it seems unrealistic that just this one team would be good cops.
That's why Silent Witness is the best crime show (that isn't about private detectives or mystery-solving gardeners etc) because the main characters aren't cops and all of the cops are incompetent or corrupt.
Plus in the early seasons you get to see a bunch of penises.
I submit to you that cops are the anti-teachers.
- Highly paid, including tons of non-mandatory overtime;
- zero expectations of basic humanity, let alone integrity/professionalism, from anyone at all;
- permitted to openly lie to the public;
- their unions are allowed to threaten violence to those in power with zero criticism.
