I like how the child in the first panel grows up to be the protester in the second panel, and the child in the second panel grows up to be the protester in the third panel.

And the protester of one panel becomes the reactionary in the next panel. The person with red hair can be seen in every stage throughout the panels.

I think that's what they mean that "you become conservative as you grow older". To me, doing so means you succumbed to the system.

[-] afraid_of_zombies 48 points 4 months ago

I have become more leftwing as I have grown older.

well im 40 and I'm a lefty as shit. when does it kick in?

[-] [email protected] 15 points 4 months ago

Maybe "becoming conservative" as one grows older means differently to other people. Personally for me, as i grow older, I think it means looking for more stability. Which i can get behind but it doesn't mean i will vote to cut taxes for the rich and austerity. Same as you, I'd stay leftie because i support social justice.

I'll be honest, the older I get and the more I realize just how fucked the whole system is, the less I desire stability lmao

That's what they mean and what they hope you do.

In reality, only a small amount of people make that transition, and usually it is because of brain rot combined with propaganda like Fox news.

Most people do get milder and more realistic as they age, but not necessarily more conservative.

You can still find a lot of leaft-leaning old hippies. I guess Bernie Sanders would be the most famous one.

On the contrary, this conflict has made me go from a liberal to a hardline leftist.

I didn’t catch that. Neat!

[-] captainlezbian 16 points 4 months ago

The protestors also become the parent in the next panel. The child in the first panel is in every panel.

[-] [email protected] 6 points 4 months ago

And the child in the third panel is arguably the child form of the first pulling-parent. Excellent design!

[-] [email protected] 46 points 4 months ago

That's funny because those are the kind of opinions I developed by going to school.

[-] lemmington_steele 36 points 4 months ago

and that's why you can see that once the person has gone to school they protest (in the next panel)

you then can see in the panel after they protest that they become the parent, telling their child to go to school. presumably because they forgot what they learned at school (or because they think school is the best way for children to learn about these things - which seems a little less likely)

[-] [email protected] 16 points 4 months ago

Ah! I didn't even catch that. That's actually brilliant.

[-] [email protected] 12 points 4 months ago

Oooh, didn't even notice that... Nice catch!

It's different now. Now Republicans don't want people going to school. School just forces the lib'rul into kids brains.

You know how MLK is famed for nonviolence in his protests?

This is how they treated him in his time

[-] randon31415 17 points 4 months ago

If Biden gets reelected and we do the "each party gets two terms then switch" dance that has been going on now for decades, it will be 2036 before we have a chance of electing a president that will hold Israel accountable for its actions.

[-] [email protected] 9 points 4 months ago

Which president would that be?

Can anyone make similar picture with texts: "No Afgan war", "No Chechnya war", "No Ukraine war" and on every slide police is beating them?
