argumate:

a lot of people on Tumblr playing at Nazis purely for shock value, but it’s not very shocking because there are plenty of actual Nazis in the world and they are more tedious than anything else.

why not reach for something more extreme? nuke the moon, etc.

come up with an ideology that people would agree with 50% of but then draw horrifying conclusions from it. pit two sacred cows against each other with an earnestness that genuinely bothers people.

or hell, just play at being a child molester. if you find you can’t do that because it’s just too far out of your comfort zone, ask why the Nazi thing isn’t.

I think Nazism is probably the Schelling point for “terrible idea that I can have while still having a community.”
