I discovered very soon that I was adverse to the military.

I have wondered why. So I looked back in history to find out.

I found that standing armies are only a very recent invention. I do recognise that at the present time standing armies are a necessary evil, but an evil nonetheless.

And by evil necessity standing armies practise the arts of war, and this evil necessity infects whole societies. So we have the civilian gun culture of the USA practising the arts of war on a daily basis.

And just as bad money drives out good money, so the arts of war drive out the arts of peace.

And civilian practice of the arts of war on a daily basis creates a paranoid personality.

We see this paranoid personality in the USA arming itself in self declared militia against their own democratically elected government.
