Ooh.. gotta answer that one.
Lesson from Russia: you don’t convert to consumer capitalism without first establishing rule of law.
Lesson for the world: you don’t convert to an armed populace without first establishing military service and a militial tradition.
If anything, the past month has made me understand that the cognitive class-tribes of men can only be united by military training where words do not matter, only empirical evidence, truthful testimony, and duty to one another before all else.
Men > Military Service (at last boot camp and two years of continuous operations – even just training – ‘in the field’, three years is optimum because that’s the length of the human forgetting curve necessary to truly transform. > Quarterly militia practice for military, disaster, medical, or riot control.
This is our most profound secret to success.
Military > Empiricism+Testimony > duty > invsetment in the commons > Status regardless of rank > ‘insurance’ regardless of rank.
