Digging out the infection

This may hurt, but truth often does, just like digging the infection out of a wound isn't a pleasant experience. This particular infection is frequently found on blogs and other writings from people who otherwise support liberty- except where this blindspot is encountered.

I get so tired of military worship from people who pretend to be on the side of liberty and freedom. You can't have it that way if you are honest, because it just doesn't work that way, no matter what you wish.

I realize a lot of people have "invested" their lives with the military, and have family members- parents, siblings, offspring, and ancestors going back for generations- who have done the same. They want to believe that they have been a part of "something bigger than themselves" [sic] and a FORCE for good. They want to believe in spite of reality. What a waste.

You have all been working against everything America was supposed to be. You have been destroying liberty while being told you are preserving it. You have been the willing (or enslaved, in the case of the conscripted) tool of tyrants and psychopaths.

I do not "support the troops" except in that I want them all to come home NOW and stop bringing American Empire to other shores- this alone will stop the dying. I do not value the goals of the US police State. I do not support efforts to "democratize" other cultures. Nor do I want these troops joining with "law enforcement" to bring the "blessings of tyranny" to America once they lose their overseas jobs. No occupying troops here or abroad!

Some claim to join the military as a way to "help" people. Seriously? If you really want to be on a disaster relief crew, traveling to the scene of the latest natural or man-made disaster, then being in the death squad known as the military isn't the right way to go about it. Join a better group, form your own, or go it alone. Think you'll need armed back-up while you are there? I agree. Provide your own or re-think the situation you are getting yourself into.

The military, even in the best circumstances is not helping liberty, but killing it. Don't join for ANY reason.
