quote [ In the past, this straightforward voyeurism has occasionally been paired with political critique. ]

some nice writeup from Simon Parkin. Some people commented that this left out other and earlier references but seeing that it's Parkin this most likely happened for coherence.

full in extended for people who don't have little JS-blocker toggle extensions against paywalls (here's an untested one for ios: StopTheScript).

His Soul is Marching On to Another World; or, the John Brown Isekai

quote [ The land of Gemeinplatz is a land filled with fantastical creatures, adventurers looking to slay them, and heroes looking to distinguish themselves from the adventurers. The most common of these heroes are those who come from Earth, who enjoy a most leisurely time with their cheat skills. It?s a perfect world, the utopia of those who wish to become overpowered and get their own power fantasy, where even the most everyman of the everyman can pull themselves by their bootstraps and become a hero. ]

lmao. Glory, glory, hallelujah. His soul goes marching on.
