    • Many idealistic young people have essentially no other economic options as they exit high school so they join the military. They aren’t children and are morally responsible for their actions, but it’s unrealistic to expect every 18 year old to be fully actualized, completely immune to a life of statist propaganda, and with their future plotted on a sane path through this increasingly insane world.

      A friend of some friends of mine died at an early age as a result of exposure to military burn pits. He widowed a young wife and left behind an orphan. Our society should be very concerned about these avoidable tragedies.
