Today Americans honor those who fought and murdered strangers in return for stolen money. Americans have long been taught from their infancy that killing on the orders of the political elite is the noblest thing a tax slave can do. They are taught that invasion and murder have something to do with the defense of their own homes, lives and freedoms.
“But who would defend us if it weren’t for the government and the warrior it pays with the taxes it takes?” we can almost hear the masses asking. We have to ask back, who would be having turf wars that kill thousands and millions, mostly innocents. The state, after all, is a self-licking ice cream cone. It creates its own demand. It sustains itself by causing the ills that it then claims we need it to solve. War, like crime-inducing poverty and prohibition, is just another government program. The people who die and kill for the state often do have the best intentions. But they are part of the problem. They may deserve pity and patient explanation of the facts, but certainly not “honor”.
