There is a difference...

There is a difference between fighting for your nation, your Folk, and fighting for the internationalist finance-capitalists who control the state. In one, there is honor, in the other, you are at best a mercenary. Let me put it bluntly, you weren't fighting for Mr. Jones or Mrs. Johnson next door; you were fighting for a system that lines the pockets of Schiffs, Rothschilds, Warburgs, and other alien, internationalist profiteers who have come to dominate our society.

The American frontier was inhabited by hostile tribes for whom "thieves, murderers, and rapists" is perhaps a more apt description than for the pioneers. Even children were scalped, and these scalps were affixed to clothing. Some tribes practiced human sacrifice, like the Pawnee, who captured young girls from neighboring tribes and sacrificed them in the barbaric "Morning Star Ritual" that persisted well into the 19th century. At least the pioneers were constrained by a European culture of human dignity and by the clear moral injunctions of the Christian faith, although in actual practice, of course, these constraints were not always observed.
