…and the real reason that citizens of other countries—including the United States—bomb, maim, shoot, and kill for their government was stated by Tojo when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor: “The time has come for the Japanese people to serve their country and die for the country regardless of the sacrifice.” The state is their god. And this includes American Christians who worship the golden calf, the U.S. military. The crowds in Japan that I saw on a recent video cheering for their military and their leaders reminded me not only of the crowds of Germans cheering for Hitler, but also the crowds of Republicans cheering for Bush and the crowds of Democrats cheering for Obama. When it comes to state worship, leader worship, and military worship, Americans are just as bad as anyone else in history.
