Could it be more aptly named? Service indeed.
The questions are, who serves, who is served, and at what price?
I thought as a child western humanity had outgrown the Pharaohs, the barons, and serfdom. I know now as an adult I was wrong.
I refuse to participate in ANY paid activity that contributes to wars of aggression. I refuse to be a war criminal.
That is Real “personal responsibility.”
How I define those activities is of infinite clarity and impeccable credibility:
In 1950, the Nuremberg Tribunal defined Crimes against Peace, in Principle VI, specifically Principle VI(a), submitted to the United Nations General Assembly, as:
(i) Planning, preparation, initiation or waging of a war of aggression or a war in violation of international treaties, agreements or assurances;
(ii) Participation in a common plan or conspiracy for the accomplishment of any of the acts mentioned under (i).
