All I know is I'd have Volunteered regardless if it was my sister, no 12 year old should be sent to die!!!
I don't think it's very accurate, I mean at least bikes would be ridden even if they couldn't afford cars surely. And it's not believable because
we outnumber the government in total, and military will not all blindly protect government from their own citizen bretheren. JMHO.
Tend to disagree about the military...
When you enter the military, you are sequestered from the rest of the world, and stripped of any/all individual worth and loyalty outside your
"duty" to the military. Your responsibility to the military is reinforced constantly with reminders of the reward/s of "disobedience".
Have you noticed that the greatest prospects for future employment...are in "Criminal Justice"?
...in a nation that already cages a greater percentage of its citizenry than any other...?
The premise (as I understood it) was that a revolution had been attempted against an oppressive government/regime... The government/regime had managed
to regain control...and...rather than attempt to heal the rift and make things better for all...chose to punish "the offenders".
Given that scenario... - if your choices were between serving an oppressive regime, or...being one of the oppressed...do you think 2 out of 3 would
choose a hot meal and the other amenities (like electricity, running water, bed, housing, money to spend, the possiblity of actually "moving up in
the world", etc...)...
Wouldn't be that difficult to "man" such an "army".
...or - do you think I'm seeing it wrong?
