I do not have all the answers, and this is a question that constantly plagues me as I see our society falling apart around us as relativism (of which my oft-written topic of feminism is a part of) destroys any semblance of truth.
The question is simple does the US military act as an enabler of our culture suicide, because we are defended so we are free to act our more fucked up proclivities to the natural conclusion of societal unraveling, or is the military the last bastion of better values, and an institution that will outlast the collapse of the US?
I am not in, I dont know, I can only speculate, I hope people with experience will comment. I wrote about the increasing feminism in the military here (http://wp.me/p2YaVQ-7Z ) which is undeniable, and it gives credence more to the enabler part of the question. At its root, all the gays, the trans, the fat bitchy feminists – all of them are defended by the military that they never had to join. (Mandatory military service is something I think we should have )
Further, the military increasingly acts as a corporate imperial conquering force.
It is rough, because at its root, the organization is something I would really behind (and I still occasionally think about joining, pending the resolution to this question) but as of now it is really tough to justify joining to defend the faggotry I see around me.
