I agree with Malgus in that most servicemen AND esp the general public have no clue as to the Constitution or our history. No knowledge of our fundamental precepts, the ones that built this unique country. Gone with the wind…lost in virtual reality and I-phone addiction. And yes, the troops brought in will have no ties to the community.
As to the govt not being a monolith–it is in the thinking of some people who have been generationally dependent upon it. They have no experience in analytical thinking. More later….
