The Hidden Costs Of Endless Wars – Half Of All New Veterans Seek Disability

A timely reminder of the disposable society created by the Godless corporate state on this Memorial Day weekend.  We live in a society of violence endorsed by the state.  One of its many outcomes include disposable workers, disposable service people and disposable citizens.  

Politicians and bureaucrats in general are great at dissociation and detachment from the unintended consequences of their forever meddling and illegitimate projections of power and control over others – a founding principle of why we are a nation ruled by law rather than a nation ruled by men/women.   Unfortunately, the rule of law has been subverted and we are now a nation of men.  The whims of man now determine our actions.  The whims of man now determine what laws will be subverted and plundered. 

"Sometimes the law defends plunder and participates in it. Thus the beneficiaries are spared the shame and danger that their acts would otherwise involve. But how is this legal plunder to be identified? Quite simply. See if the law takes from some persons what belongs to them and gives it to the other persons to whom it doesn't belong. See if the law benefits one citizen at the expense of another by doing what the citizen himself cannot do without committing a crime." -- Frederic Bastiat

If said bureaucrats in thinkless think tanks, the military-industrial complex and politics were required to lead the charge on the field of battle, this psychotic and violent policy of proactive, endless war would end.
