The fuck does joining the army have to do with perpetuating war?

I wonder if sales of Hagakure are soaring in wake of season 2 of True Detective, much like season one prompted purchases of The King in Yellow?  It was pretty prominently displayed in episode one in Ani Bezzerides' home, alongside a less prominent copy of A Book of Five Rings and some what look like some Fairbairn and Sykes knife-fighting manuals.

Well tough luck poseurs, my samurai killer manuals are well over a decade old. My knifefighting manuals too, though I only keep digitized copies of those nowadays.

Had been thinking about episode, and I call foul if anyone uses a wakizashi.

And it is the contract that worries me, because the commitment only dances around the notion of informed consent.

Where do you get that idea?

The potential loss is difficult to grasp for most males aged 18-28, I think, from personal experience.  I don't consider myself entirely unreasonable and yet still was susceptible to suggestion.

If I may allow mself to imagine what it feels like, I'd think the 'draft' at first was breezy, like the invitation of an open door, slowly turning into a massive undertow.

This kind of training may be good but the end result is something of a complex beast.  The only way I know to kill it is not to serve it.

I have a feeling you may have a better grasp on the subject, so I wouldn't be opposed to conversation, it's your thread?

Well, we certainly can't allow people to make decisions before they're 70.
Okay, what if we actually presented them with a choice, instead of pretending that war is the answer?

[I'm not saying the problem is easy]

The military is still really popular in Greece so that could easily happen, could even happen without a coup. We rang my relatives yesterday and they aren't too concerned. They are a bit out of it in Crete and have farms to be self sustaining, they cant afford to keep their cars running but they're not going to starve.

They are worried about Athens though, and when the rioting starts the police are going to be right along side people in a looting free-for-all.
