It so happens that I've found myself in possession of a Pixel 2,
Google's new flagship Android device. My current device is a Blackberry
Priv, which I hitherto have had little complaint for.
For some time now I've been a technological skeptic; the notion that
newer is better does not appeal to me, and I believe that the presence
of additional new behaviour doesn't necessarily mean greater general
utility.
So here I am holding this shiny new phone and looking at my Priv. I

The risk you run with any NOFX album is that it's almost guaranteed to be 50% garbage, but I have fond memories of Punk in Drublic (disclaimer: I haven't listened to it in over 1/2 a decade, at least). I know you already listened to at least a few song off So Long...

Other bands, you've got the well known guys like Anti-Flag (they've always been catchy as fuck, but American Fall has some next-level ear worms), Bad Religion (Generator through Stranger Than Fiction are probably their strongest albums), Pennywise I know you've listened to, Strung Out has some good stuff (An American Paradox was a favourite of younger Geoff, and revisiting it now, it's still a fun album).

Good Riddance leans a little more towards the hardcore end, but they're still one of my favourite bands. I'd recommend checking out "A Comprehensive Guide to Modern Rebellion" and "Ballads from the Revolution"

The Lawrence Arms (and associated acts Slapstick!, The Falcon [1/2 Lawrence Arms, 1/2 Alkaline Trio members], and Sundowner) are pret

The Oka Crisis showed that an armed population can stand up to our Government and prevail. Whether or not you agree with the Mohawks, the fact remains that the golf course was not built and the conflict greatly reshaped how the Federal Government involves itself in native issues. Further reading.

/u/metameanderer

I understand where you're coming from, but was the Oka crisis really that representative of what happens if an armed populace rose up? If it was the case presented it would have been put down pretty quickly as the military would have rolled over the territory.

If we were talking about the whole population I might disagree, but if there had been a "full blown uprising" the military could have put it down rather quickly. The iconic picture would never have happened as the

I loved season 19 of South Park. It ended about as well as I could have hoped.
For those wondering: no, the overall theme of this season was /not/ that
fighting for social justice is wrong. On the contrary, it affirmed that seeking
to improve society is a laudable goal. Where it drew a line was where it was
reasonable; the point at which one's belief in their own righteousness has
allowed them to overlook their own faults and poor behaviour.
IMHO, what South Park primarily attempted to convey is that something to be
concerned about is the manner in which media and advertising wields our concerns
