The philosophy behind this article is fallacious … at worst delusional, which teaches a treachery of self. The writer implies that we should cut the nose to spite the face.

Here’s the author’s disconnect from reality: There are always thugs in life – reality that could neither be denied nor ignored. The Military is not a picnic group … it was not created without a noble purpose, and that is to protect us and this country from thugs, local or foreign. But this service establishment itself is not without thugs in it -- like when we have rotten apples in the basket. Mothers protect their babies from harm, but there are mothers that kill them instead. Shall we line up all mothers against the wall and shoot them down one by one because some of them are the worst thugs in motherhood anyone could imagine? This author insinuates that we should harbor ill-well against the Military because of what happened to this woman who was a victim of thugs in the armed forces. The Devil never ceases to tempt the weak into taking the road down to perdition 24 hours a day. An anarcho-Libertarian from the dark side does likewise … dreams of creating an anarchist society in America, a United States of America that has neither states nor government -- a society of chaos and anarchy that no doubt electrifies the Antichrist and serves his purpose.

But believe me … this will only happen when the crows turn white.

Having been in both the military and law enforcement I can tell you there are good and bad in each. Although the percentage of bad is small in both cases it takes very few to cause problems. The law enforcement who harassed this lady should be tried and if convected placed in general population of the prison where they would learn a lesson, I’m sure.

 

Your comment regarding the troops, supporting or not supporting is way off base. My experience, I was in the Army, has been no one is out to harass innocent people, at least not the dedicated troops. Determining who are the innocent however, is another question, but usually not left up to the average GI unless in combat, in that case much of the question is not relative. If you are promoting not supporting our troops you are not worth anyone’s time in responding. I certainly saw and heard of many like you during and after Vietnam,

Some people like Bakadude just never figure out reality.  They cannot fathom how societies like the Germans and Russians murdered so many people for power, privilege and prestige. It was their police and military (mercenaries) that did the crimes and these groups have historically done such atrocities on the orders from those that pay them. That's why many in the freedom movement call them mercenaries. They historically have killed without regard, as long as they are being paid. Have you not noticed a specific psychological profile and the lack of socio-economic education within these groups. George Washington warned of the use of a standing army and Eisenhower warned of the military industrial complexes that now rule much of the world.  Our founders smartly instituted the militia and sadly did not abide by its own Constitution. 

Armies and therefore wars are perpetrated through the redistribution of wealth schemes that the ruling elites use as means of profit and prestige. Not understanding this reality has contributed to almost all the atrocities this world has ever experienced. 

War allows men the legal authority to rape and pillage and this must stop if we are to ever enter the next phase of civil society.  Until such times as societies prohibit the redistribution of wealth to standing armies, the world will be held hostage by the various groups in power.  To do this we must consider taxation as the theft it is in reality, despite its erroneously depicted necessity.  A well regulated militia won us the Revolutionary War and it will provide the best defense against both domestic and foreign enemies. Placing the lower socioeconomic classes as dispensable pawns in contrived wars around the planet is not acceptable and as history has now shown, will not foster a civil society.

I do not normally waste my time responding to crazy comments, but for readers who are curious to know how crazy comments look like, I present the following: "War allows men the legal authority to rape and pillage .." H. Skip Robinson (#28829). This is a crazy comment. There is no legal authority to rape and pillage whatsoever, even in war. The educated know this. "… this must stop if we are to ever enter the next phase of civil society …" Who "must stop" this imagined "legal authority to rape and pillage – Robinson Crusoe? By what means … taking a high dosage of diazepam or restrict you in a white straitjacket?

The weird comment continues that this must be stopped [stop the legal rape and pillage ???] "… if we are to ever enter the next phase of civil society …" What the hell is "the next phase of civil society"? Does this make sense? No it does not. A hallucination never makes sense. So is delirium. Tranquilizer is prescribed when crazies like this turn dangerous.

If you hear this rumbling in the middle of the night as if it is coming from the catacomb: "Until such times [sic] as societies prohibit the redistribution of wealth to standing armies …" [where in hell is this coming from – societies prohibiting the redistribution of wealth to standing armies????] and "… consider taxation as the theft it is in reality.." [taxation is a theft????], well, you know someone not in touch with reality is on the loose and might be dangerous, and for public safety, it is your civic duty to call an ambulance or dial 911.

Perhaps the intention is legit and the brain is just scattering in a state of a terrible disorder that what comes out of it lacks coherence, but what I am doing is bring you are here face to face with what senseless, foolish or silly comments look like. Nothing personal … no offense intended.

To Skip Robinson: By the way, war is not fought in order to redistribute wealth to the standing armies. That’s a foolish statement. Have you heard Troy or Helen of Troy? If you didn’t, then you missed this great opportunity to know how and why great wars are fought.

You said "Germans and Russians murdered so many people for power, privilege and prestige." You must be referring to Hitler’s WWII Holocaust when millions of Jews were murdered and to Stalin’s purge in Russia. Hitler committed genocide out of his maniacal hatred of Jews. The Kremlin purge that occurred in the former Soviet Union was an ideological killing to purify Stalin’s version of the Communist Revolution by getting rid of what he described as "traitors" to the cause.

Anyway, to come to the light of knowledge from this darkness of not knowing what you are talking about, there is a lot of books to read as educational references.
