diekneipe said: oooh i wrote a paper about this once and basically said that the versailles treaty started wwii because it was the reason hitler was allowed to rise to power and stuff.

that’s basically ajp taylor’s thesis and we read that in class!! which amuses me, because i guess wwii is far off enough for us to look at it a little more critically, but america clearly still operates in a very cold war frame of mind when it comes to communism and the ussr 

i mean we still look at wwii as a moral war and our actions as morally just (the firebombing of dresden is brushed off for example as just ‘one of those things’) but at least we examine its causes more critically these days

but lol cold war is just 'COMMUNISTS PLAYED HUNGRY HUNGRY HIPPO WITH EASTERN EUROPE BUT THEN WE STOPPED THEM’

ooh tenor fetish i like it

I just

there’s something about clarity and vocal agility on high notes

that makes my knees go weak

maybe it’s societal conditioning

because in musical theater it’s quite common for the heroic or romantic male characters to sing tenor

so maybe that?

but I still really just

tenor vocal parts are so lovely
