Fred Reed on military

Последняя колонка Фреда душевно разбирается с армией и смежными вопросами. Как всегда, категорично, но убедительно.

Draftees go to war not because they are brave, but because they are not brave enough. It takes courage to volunteer for war. It takes courage, or at least decisiveness, to hide in Mexico. It does not take courage to be drafted. This is why it works.

И так далее.
