Re: Children in Combat

Laurence:  People like McCain who profess to be so “proud” to have their children in combat reflect the “normal” insanity of our world. What their words mean is “I love the state, and the corporate establishment it serves, more than I do my own children.”  Back in the 1960s, I knew a man who expressed so much “shame” that his son had gone to Canada rather than get drafted to go to Vietnam.

If we can learn to love our children more than we do our attachments to authority, we may reject the patriotic frenzy of killing other people’s children!
