going to war for country is moronic. It is inspired by patriotism which is one of the worst evils in the world, the concept that you should give up your life so that the political elite that created the reason for the war can keep their positions. I can understand fighting for family or friends or even to protect fellow human beings, but to do so for a country shows you are brainwashed.

My wife when she first moved to Australia was adamant that she would return to her homeland and fight for it should another country try to sieze it, After several logical discussions with her I finally saw the light bulb moment when she realised that basically she was volunteering to die to protect a piece of land for political powers.
