The problem is a complex web of deception; the institutions, indoctrination, and propaganda – the lies and the powerful tides of history that inundate the ready and unprepared alike.
I couldn't agree more. In fact, further down, I wrote:
"I do sympathize with the circumstances which bring many to join in the first place.
I think we all know someone who is a good person who signs up, not knowing any better. They are encapsulated in a cocoon of propaganda from the womb until signing day. In so many cases, their parents didn't know any better; their friends didn't know any better; and hell, maybe we didn't even know any better to be able to advise them until it was too late, and they were already signed up.
So, I don't propose it's so simple as to how they end up there, or even how they get out...
And yet, at the same time, we all know that we are each responsible for our own choices and the consequences therefrom...
And the overarching point of my post is... We cannot pin murder on Obama on the one hand, and on the other hand say that the person who is actually committing the act did not also commit murder. It just doesn't follow logically.
As uncomfortable as it is, I think the best thing for all, is to admit that it is murder, and apply that term judiciously, in its literal sense, upon the one who commits it.
It is the only way to stigmatize and deter others from committing the same act on behalf of the state in the future.
Otherwise, if we say they are Obama's murders, then we are insulating and pardoning -- and in effect, subsidizing -- the actual act of murder. It will never end."
So I am sympathetic to the plight of soldiers, in some cases (but most certainly not all), whereas Obama has no excuse at all. I just think that continuing to cushion them from responsibility for the lives they are taking, in favor of focusing on the King, fails completely as it relates to seeking change. The proof is in the pudding.
