That is common sense. However, you may find sollice in knowing that through out history, when the government turns on it's people, the military sides
with the people. Why? Because the people are made up of their mom's, dad's brothers and sisters.....
What?? Can you be more specific in your argument. I am not sure how the military didn't turn on it's people in the Civil War. I am not really sure
of any other points in history where you can use this argument which it would apply.
I am also not sure of any other American war where troops haven't been conditioned for the last 20 years of fighting violent wars elsewhere to return
conditioned to fight, and the American Government "turning" on it's people. At this same time, I am not sure at what point the youth has been so
programmed in violent games, videos, music, film, and culture overall where it seems OK to kill, be violent, and abuse people. I am not really sure
in any other time we have lived in where "it's all about me" has never been stronger in the world (i.e. facebook, twitter, youtube, mysapce, camera
phones, texting, killing one another over a pair of sneakers, etc...etc...etc...) I am also not sure of any other war that has taken place in America
that is inside a time of mass programming through electronics to get the word out like they can today.
We can't even get our kids to stop talking one another into taking their clothes off for each other at such a young age, taking a picture of them, and
then sending it all over the school because they think it's cool instead of seeing how truly sick that is. Not only can we not stop them from doing
it, but we can't get the kids who think they are innocent because they never did it, to refrain from looking at it anyway. Bullying is at an all time
high with the end result being suicide for many.
We have groups like Anonymous that are solely targeting our kids and teaching them to think it's cool to break the law because "they" are breaking it.
We can't even get one another to help each other in the biggest trial of our lives because they are so inundated with scum like Lebron James thinking
he really is some kind of a King and would like to have anything he has because a commercial told them so.
We have never once lived in times of this mass social indoctrination of "it's all about me" and you think they don't know or planned this? You think
they don't have a plan to get people to turn on their own citizens?? Like really??? They just got our own government to strip away just about ALL
of our bill of rights right in front of our eyes in just a matter of years
, which this same military is sworn to uphold and protect us from,
and has yet to step up to the plate to defend us from this!
You suddenly think when these same people who stood by and did absolutely nothing
to protect us can't feed their families any more they won't pick up a gun and blow your brains out???
When these same people you speak of are promised food, resources, health care, better shelter for them and "their families" who exactly would they be
turning on? Certainly not their families. I think you are missing the point of exactly to the extent one could use these powers to manipulate the
minds of a soldier so that he in fact is not thinking about turning on his family, but providing for them.
Maybe you can help me understand your thinking more because I am blown away at what you are saying! I find ZERO "solace" in what you are saying
brother. Not sure how much longer one is going to sit around and think help is on the way when there is none. The military is suppose to protect us
from these things and they have yet to do a single thing about it! Suddenly they are going to have a change of heart later?
Don't let me forget the percentage of homeless vets out in the street today where their own people turned on them "after" they stepped up for us.
These same military folks neglect to connect the dots and see the long term ramifications of what putting their life on the line for others and how
they were treated in life later. How many vets are changed for life because of the tragedies they witnessed, the psychological torture they took on
defending our country, to only end up (in some instances) begging for change on the corner because they couldn't handle life anymore and slip back in
to a normal society. Nobody wants to talk about this now, we just will live with this fact later.
Please friend...wake up.
