“Boy to Man To Automaton”
“This isn’t any Country This is your Country”
Will you be the Boy, the Man or the Automaton or are you the “Prick”
The boy plays with his toy soldiers; they are the plastic kind that you can get at any novelty shop. You know – two sides, one just a little different shade of army colors than the other and one with just a little different shape to the brain bucket and some of the gear. Some how they are all just the same.
He has them lined up in neat rows facing each other just a few inches apart. He hasn’t really picked a side that he thinks should win or die, he just wants to play. The boy picks one of the soldiers up, flies it through the air then violently smashes it into the front ranks of the opposing side.
He smashes a few soldiers down hard, then hammers on the same few soldiers a couple more times. These few are out of the game now so the boy picks up two from the opposing side one in each hand and makes a broad swoop across the middle of the previous attacking side. This action wipes out and knocks down several soldiers and disrupts the rest of the neatly built troops. This is to teach the attacking side who is really in charge here.
At this point the boy looks at the situation and sees clearly that the opposing side is just left too neat and still standing so he calls upon the plastic tank that he has on stand by near the two groups. He rolls the tank gingerly over the downed attacking side, steadily towards the opposing side. As he reaches the toy soldiers he stops briefly , takes a final look at the neatness that still exists and then in an unbroken figure eight movement completely wipes out every remaining soldier. When that is done he then turns the tank back towards the other group and repeats the same action. By now both sides are strewn and mixed together in a sort of greenish/brownish abstract. At the point of finish the boy takes a look at the battle ground and declares to him self …. “mission accomplished “. Within a few seconds and with all his glee he turns to set up his troops in nice neat rows again. In the boys’ mind there is no blood , no death , for the soldiers will just pop back up for a new round , tank at the ready for a new battle.
This boy is beside himself. Mom’s call for dinner sends him scrambling for the kitchen and the battlefield is all but forgotten. And the boy will live to fight another day.
Seventeen on the edge of eighteen, why does a young man stand up and say I will stand on guard for thee. I am willing to die for the ”On Guard” cause. The series of uniforms are beautiful, they are shiny new, they are colored boldly, they are made with precision, the fit is immaculate, the symbolization is significant and important, each one blends with the other. This is powerful in itself, so powerful that young men will seek to endeavor towards the chance to wear the uniform and fit in with the others.
However this is not the power house that drives the boy now becoming a man, to want to give of his life. The real power house for this drive is instinct, instinct yet unknown to the young man. This instinct tells this young man that he is required to “Serve and Protect”. He wants to”Serve and Protect.” He wants to “Serve and Protect” his sister, his brother, his mom and his dad – he wants to protect his auntie and his uncle, his grandparents – in fact he wants to protect all that he has grown up to love and cherish, his country, his town, his dog.
For these reasons this young man is willing to give his life as a token of sacrifice for that which falls within his scope of realness and readiness. This is a realness as seen from a so called middle class upbringing, a stable and loving type of existence. The same instinctive intelligence tells the poor boy from the unstable and broken upbringing that this opportunity may be his only hope for an out and a shot at a decent education, as well as the fitting in with the uniform and the others on an equal ground. For these reasons the young man will walk.. ..running blindly into a so called basic training (Boot Camp) operation. Up to this point the young man is but an innocent child not even having a clue of what’s to come his way, still envisioning the shiny, immaculate uniforms or dreaming of what he will do with the education provided. Once boot camp operations commence this young man soon realizes that this is going to be something so foreign to him that some will begin to question why and what they have signed up for. However there will be no time to fully ponder these questions because by this time he is the property of the GOV. “G.I.” = “Government Issue” . He will not ask the questions anymore just answer them and do as he is told ..
It is at this point that the metamorphosis will begin. GOV will strip this young man of every thought, every will, every personal resource that he has. All this instinct will now be thrown into a blender of higher intelligence known as “Drill”. This drill will be unwavering. This drill will be heartless and brutal to the point of breaking every instinctive resources that the soul posesses. This drill is specifically designed to take all the instincts of the Soldier and create a “Automaton” – a being that works on auto pilot, automatically does what it is supposed to do with out hesitation , with out question, on cue, and always on target – always. It is designed to eliminate as much judgmental error as possible. All this drill begins to weigh on the Man now and at the same time begins to alleviate the man of all responsibility to anything but what GOV. says. GOV. This is the chain of command that filters down from the ranks to the “In Theater Combat Soldier.” This Soldier is now programmed to Fight, Kill, and Die all at the will and the whim of this chain of command. GOV.
“Gov” “G Man”, gov agent. However you describe it, this is the person charged with the care and restraint of the G.I. “Government Issue”. These charged persons egos, emotions, ambitions, and misguided aspirations are the Soldiers (as well as civilians) !!!!NUMBER ONE !!!! REPEAT !!!!! NUMBER ONE ENEMY!!!!!!. The G Man, or Gov agent also had a set of toy soldiers only thing is that this PRICK just exchanged their plastic toy Soldiers for real live human beings. This same PRICK still looks at the real beings as TOYS to be guided and ground out at his or her will and whim. These same PRICKS have also created laws to protect themselves from, and absolve themselves of, any and all responsibility. They have managed to keep from being held accountable for any incompetent, illegal, immoral, and completely unacceptable action when it comes to dealing with any matters of public or military best interests.
Time has come to hold these PRICKS in CONTEMPT and make them accountable.
Start from the top and work your way down. Let the cards fall as they should…..each individual world wide has the responsibility to do this. Does this sound like your Country ??? !!!!!!! WELL IT IS !!!!!! in fact it is every country on the face of this Planet.
This is not an epidemic this is a Pandemic and needs to be treated as such.
