Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same. Ronald Reagan

They are programmed to always have contempt for the military, soldiers, law enforcement and of course people who have been successful in life.
It's so well implanted in the minds of the afflicted that their responses and reactions are incredibly predictable, it is a herd mentality, a leftover from cold war era psychological operations.
First, to the members of the military I say Thank you. It is because you are willing to fight for my freedom that I am able to log onto ATS and give my opinion
That said still I feel that especially the new generations are taught to have no respect for authority - its not "taught to question it" or to "defy it", they are taught to have no respect at all - its like any figure of authority either its the army, the police, their boss, its simply the enemy - "the man", and its almost a KOS. Its like we're the cause for everything bad on this planet for every freaking butterfly loving idiot.
Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago, and you curse the Marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives.
