Not just the "ruling class", everyone. It's that animal instinct we haven't quite shaken off where we'll fight if in danger and have no other
option and we'll fight if someone has something else we want or to stand up for injustice.
Every war or skirmish in the last 100 years has been either preventative measure against an evil leader (such as in WW2 and the NATO airstrikes to
help the Libyan people against oppression) or retaliatory against an invasion or a murder (WW1, The Gulf War, War on Terror but also Iraq fits in with
the above thanks to Saddam Hussein's genocide of his own people since the 80s).
I will never fight unless I absolutely must and while I was keen on signing up and taking it to al Qaeda and the Hussein regime along with the
terrorists they and Palestine harboured back in 2003, I'm glad I didn't because I just wouldn't be good for my brothers and sisters in arms.
I could definitely put my own life on the line to rescue a comrade as a school friend did while serving in Afghanistan in 2004, receiving a medal upon
his return home, I just don't think I'd be able to shoot and kill someone unless they angered me first.
I don't see the human race as family though because if I'm absolutely honest, I despise the rest of this species for a variety of reasons.
