If there’s a word or phrase that’s being used that conceals more than it reveals, we here at revcom.us will gladly translate it into truth language. This week:
“Thank you for your service”—used when encountering a member or veteran of the U.S. armed forces.
Translation: “Thank you for being a willing part of invading, murdering, droning from the sky, and totally fucking up other societies to ensure my ability to maintain or strive for the parasitic lifestyle only made possible by that horrendous violence.”
Coming next week: “Underserved communities”
