Welcome Home Soldier

Welcome home soldier.

The war was more expensive than we thought, and the millionaires and billionaires don't want to pay their taxes, so we're cutting veteran benefits for "government workers" like you.

Time to stop fostering dependency and a culture of entitlement.

Time for you to stand on your own two legs.

Let's convince 19-year olds to make a reckless decision. 

Let's tell them there is honor in killing, or dying, or surviving war. 

Let's not show anyone these kind of pictures on Memorial Day.

"Gentle people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready in the night to do violence on their behalf." -Orwell

The "Everything I need to know I learned in Kindergarten", "Let's all just get along" may be great solutions but they are not robust. It cannot survive a single bully. It has no tools to deal with people who have nothing but contempt for rules and for weaker people.

As long as humans have 23 chromosomes, it will be necessary to have police and the military.

"War Against War" by Ernst Friedrich should be required reading in middle school or high school. Sadly in our modern era war as fought by our wonderful modern armies affects mostly civilians...
