“The illusion of freedom will continue as long 
as it's profitable to continue the illusion.
 
At the point where the illusion becomes too 
expensive to maintain, they will just take 
down the scenery, they will pull back the 
curtains, they will move the tables and chairs 
out of the way and you will see 
the brick wall at the back of the theater.”

The Burden of War

An interesting look at who the burden of war falls upon the most in modern times. As the United States military shifted to an all volunteer force over the years the burden of war has fallen on a smaller percentage of the population. It’s very easy for politicians to get into wars and send someone else to fight them. It’s seems much more difficult for politicians to take care of those who they sent to fight their wars.
