Okay, glad things worked out. However, I'm guessing the people behind this textbook think the USSR was bad and I'm wondering what their beef is with Luigi?

[-] [email protected] 18 points 2 weeks ago

Luigi's just doing his job. Mario is the "default" in every option and Luigi has to be the opposite, no matter what it is.

First US transcontinental railroad

Aside from rail infra helping to win the war for the North, this was also critical for the genocidal actions targeting Native Americans. This stuff gets talked about in history.

What doesn't get enough attention is how the profiteers from the Opium Wars and the opium trade which was forced onto China used their funds to build these railway lines and they used imported Chinese labour to construct them. Naturally the Chinese labourers were subjected to horrible abuses including good old, down-home red blooded American political exclusion, ethnic cleansing, and of course who could forget genocide?

The people who built these railway lines profited wildly from these ventures and they would go on to establish political and business dynasties based on wanton theft and destruction to humanity.

This is your daily reminder that the US has always been this way.

It is a swoop, introduced in SMW.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 2 weeks ago* (last edited 2 weeks ago)

Oh cool! Thanks. I didn't play SMW much. I mostly know swoop from 64 but it looked very different in that one.
