Awesome article, Matthew.
I come from southern Europe. My country was bombed by the NATO in 1999 (after Clinton received the blowjob). I wrote an article about it on Medium but it was read mostly by Europeans

I also wrote an article about communism (I come from former Yugoslavia) — the same situation.
I wrote a few things about socialism, a couple of guys attacked me as if I were praising fascism. Socialism is also a great taboo in the US, the propaganda did a great job
