I'm currently applying to join the RAF and came across this during the online application process,so I'm just wondering what are other people's thoughts on this.



Do you think it would hinder an application, would they consider a conspiracy theorist to be a volatile asset?

Or do you think they may be more willing to let you into the loop if your mind is already open to certain topics?



Perhaps you think it may be some kind of test?

Or is it simply a general drop down box found on many web based application forms?

I reckon if you click that your going in the army, front line fodder.

That selection could be renamed "Click here for disqualification".

If in doubt, leave it out.

I mean, if you want the job and it may prejudice your application negatively, I'd simply leave it out.

An omission is not a lie.

Selecting "Conspiracy Theory" will not serve your interests.

It implies that you can think critically, for yourself and thereby question authority which ultimately might transpire as insubordination.

I think you make a very good point, and very succinct,


I've frequently heard that the RAF want "thinking soldiers" which can be seen at base level by requiring more qualifications for what is fundamentally the same job in a different armed force e.g RAF Officer vs Army Officer

Is this merely a ruse to make one feel more autonomous, are they simply referring to one's ability to remember protocol and regurgitate information and drills,

I motion the latter despite claims of the former.

Any nation's armed forces and any branch therein is a literal death cult at best.

It is my opinion that the instance a soldier becomes a "thinking soldier", he/she would immediately abandon his/her soldiery. Therefore, a "thinking soldier" is a momentary intermediary that represents a milestone in the transition of thought.
