@garfiald

legit curious why you think the 3rd republic was so bad? compared to what we have now at least parliament had some sort of power, not like the emperor-president regime we have now

(unless you're talking about all the shit that happened during the 3rd republic, which, sure, it's not even a question it was probably the worst period of french history to be alive)

@garfiald I still enjoy reading about the 3rd Republic and seeing that we aren't the only ones to run a system everyone knows is crap but don't do anything about it until the Nazis arrive. Strange similarities really...

@garfiald @whiskeysailor it’s a tell that in places like Japan where the US reconstructed a government that we didn’t make it resemble ours at all

re: Americans don't read this. You know you'll get upset 

@garfiald How dare you insinuate that our founding fathers were not the most gigabrained redditors of their day? I'm certain there's a Schoolhouse Rock video out there that's going to sort you out just as soon as I find it

re: Americans don't read this. You know you'll get upset 

@garfiald me on my knees, praying: Lin-Manuel Miranda, please, grant me the strength to show these Europeans that our founding fathers were both Hamilton levels of cool and Parks & Rec levels of funny and relatable...

@garfiald I feel like there's been governments with worse structures but I'm not entirely sure what
