Draft means you chose to go to war? If you see people ripping babies out of incubators and smashing their heads against the wall, as ordered, that is a good thing and worth fighting for? What are you when you enlist - a zombie? Oh right you're not supposed to think for yourself
When you join the military you take a oath, in that oath you swear to defend the United States against all enemies both foreign and domestic. It does say only if you agree with the war, or only if you want to. You don't have the option.
You are in the military. When you joined you knew there was or is always the possibility of going to war. You should have thought of that before you joined, not after.
Yeah sure, what does agreeing with the war entail? When you walked in and enlisted did they sell you a glamorous flyboy, sailors dream of career, education and payment for enlisting? That it was a legitimate war? That it wasn't another false flag operation? When you figure out that the terrorists are homegrown and you're in a stinking hole in the ground defending the rights of elitist America to send your ass to hell, it's time to bring the war home. There is a clause in the Constitution (That damn "C" word again) that states you can bear arms against tyrannical governments too. What happens if you figure out what is really going on after being so gung-ho about joining "To defend Life, Liberty and the 'Merikan way of life. What happens if you grow up from your infancy and decide you made a mistake?
I find it terrible that this man and woman would decide to put on a uniform and then decide that they did not want to go to war. I understand their feelings and can even say I don't blame them. But,when your in the military you cannot question the why, you do what you are paid and trained to do. Not what you want to do.
So enlisted soldiers are nothing more than a flagdraped, glorified poorly paid mercenaries is what you're saying?
Spend your whole childhood pretending to be an individual, just to get retrained not to think- just do. This isn't a conflict of the psychical? What the reality here is that youths are torn between acts of conscience and acts of attrition while too inexperiewnced to make choices concerning life and death. Their decision making has been fed a healthy diet of programming that doesn't provide them the tools to reason logically from their strengths. Instead their emotion are eliscited to respond to stimulus. This is what these young men and women work with. Emotional choices.
The first stage of life is a lie set up to indoctrinate you into the belief that you are great, your country is great, that all you have to do is lve and all will go well. When the dreamstate leaves you find only an illusion of ideas that made sense when you were safe at home with mommy and daddy. Now that you're in your 20's and "All Growed up" these illusions no longer apply in the real world. It is up to you to forget that you matter, that what you think is important? But of course "Where's the money"? Wheres the babes and hunks that would complete your lifes purpose and meaning? Some see no option but to enlist. It is a safe haven, a gang, if you will, that accepts you, nurtures you and gives you that drive. It could be a lifelong career as well and there is education possibilities. War is a far thought in the minds of a young recruit during peace time.
But when you're number comes up, when duty calls, it is up to you to serve and not regret. Just shut up and do what you're told- individual asshole! How long does it take a drill sarge to render these clowns into a well oiled goon squad? Not thinking, not individual, just a group of hired well trained murderers doing the psychopatic " Duty" that their country chose for them.
What if this war is the one where we figure out that we don't need war any more? Should old soldiers just fall out of favor and realise that the sacrifices they made each time their country called was nothing more than a cover for grand theft, by supporting the bourgeoisies love of sending other peoples children to die for the sake of their lying, cheating and stealing.
War is obsolete and should be declared dead. It is time to declare war on war and end its ridiculous power struggles for good.
Cheers for the dodgers and deserters- they have regained their capacity to think for themselves again. Of course the government thinks their dangerous, as anyone out of the groupthink industry knows. A tsunami starts with a small tremor and becomes a great force capable of erasing the environment that created it. This is the fear that the government has- "What if they gave a war and nobody came". Would they be forced finally to do the fighting themselves or would they choose the one thing that seems impossible to them? Negotiate? Diplomacy based on solutions and not threats?
HEAVEN FORBID- IT IS JUST SOOOOOO MUCH EASIER TO SEND SOMEONES CHILDREN TO DO THEIR DIRTY WORK AND THEN BLAME THE VICTIM- WHEN THEY COME TO THEIR SENSES-isn't it.
