Military Privilege

Email Print

This morning I noted that Detroit Int’l Airport has a Freedom Lounge with a sign says “Serving Those Who Serve Us.” It’s a special ‘military only’ lounge for the government’s war enforcers. They sure as heck don’t serve me because I don’t conduct the wars they “serve.” Surely the airport doesn’t have an entrepreneur’s lounge, and that’s because those folks don’t serve they state. Their first allegiance is to serve the voluntary customer via mutually beneficial transactions, so they actually do serve “us.”
