I hate the UK join the army commericals, anyone seen them?
I would be more likely to join the army, if I felt it was honest and that it was not trying to brainwash me!
These commercials are making the army look like a FUN game, they show women having fun with the soldiers, they make the battlefield look like a video
game and ask you what you would do? in a game show way. They even show xbox 360 controller being used to controll devices in the army.
They are trying to get kids to join by brainwashing them to think it's like a videogame, it's ALL fun.
Yes the army may be fun at times, but not like that, people die, your friends die, bad crap happens, that's not fun, they don't show you that.
They tell you you gotta make yourself worth something, so join the army! as if if you don't your worth nothing.
It's all brainwashing you to join the army, like I said I would be more likely to join if I didn't feel like I'm getting brainwashed to join.
I even saw a US army commercial once, it showed a couple of young guys playing a video game, and then suddenly the soldier in the video game turns
around and looks at the guys and says " you wants a REAL challenge? then join the army!"
My point is, why would I want to become the top 3% of people in the world, if I feel like I'm not joining a honest deal. Why would I sign up to
protect my country when these days most soldiers are out in chaos far away, basically in "simple" terms, invading countries. where's the protecting
our country bit?
Why would I sign up to be a slave, if I don't agree with something I will get arrested, and your "friends" want you to be shot for having an
Don't get me wrong, I respect the soldiers out there who join to do the right thing, they risk their lives for us, I just don't respect the
"situation" these guys are in.
In the end we are all humans, soldiers are not better than non soldiers, it's truly down to the individual and what's in their heart, their motives
I also do not believe a king or royalty is any better than non royalty, who are we to judge such a thing, how are we to truly know who is better or
not. Money? bloodline? nah such a petty thing, only what's within the person is what matters.
