1: current soldier
2: returning soldier
3: current cop ex-soldier
4: current cop no soldiery
5: current highway trooper ex-soldier
6: ex highway trooper no soldiery
... And so on?
The point I am making is this: You cannot know if there are any good men in these groups above, until they are faced with the shoot-dont-shoot
scenario, within the context of their authority.
Here is a further question which applies to all cops/soldiers on Earth:
How do they view their uniform, as compared to their comrade, who wears a different uniform? That is to say, does the brownshirt of the SA in
Hitler's time, envy the Hugo Boss-designed SS uniforms, with their bold black and white and death's head motif? You know the uniform-makers and
silk traders (same crew really) have discussion about how it doesn't matter. Hmm, whom was that great silk trader who said, "I care not who makes a
nations laws, so long as I am allowed to make its uniforms!" ? Who was that who said that?
Anyway, I wonder if the local PD in my town (who have great uniforms, truly inspiring) are in any way envious of the Super-Trooper highway rolling
Staties, who have the flat brimmed hat like a USMC drill instructor? The local cops have the cool beat-walking hats, but the troopers get the DI flat
But then there's the bikers, who seem to choose the German cross and the Nazi style German helmets... Why is that the style for the biker gangs?
Hmm, and could bikers be a police force, and if so, would they have to wear similar helmets? It is a fair question. But if some great US designer is
involved, no doubt everyone will be able to buy the new "national uniform" at some local department store like Target or something.
But my point is that none of these uniforms of costumes, has any traction with Rambo. His uniform, is very much like the post-Stalingrad SS soldier.
Haggard and unshaven. Yes, for you see, Rambo wasn't at Stalingrad, but he can relate. Also, he is half German, according to the movies, so you can
see where I am going with this.
In Egypt, and across the world, it is the uniformed, versus the un-uniformed. The Rambo-type, is the veteran soldier, who is the wildcard. As with
Rambo, he wears the uniform. But he wears it in his own way, which is in direct contest with the whole concept of the idea of "uniform-ity",
meaning, Rambo makes his GI issue jacket, into an anti-uniformity, statement. And so this class of ex-uniformed folks, is the true wild card in every
national struggle. In a way, people like Rambo had to learn the hard way, that BEING uniform, is total BS, but wearing a uniform, to display
anti-uniformity, is cool. Get it?
