Military and Police don't care about you by DragonQuestWes Military and Police don't care about you by DragonQuestWes
Seriously. The military and the police overall do NOT give two shits about you or your rights/freedoms. They only make money for the government.

The military does not fight for your "freedom" or "rights" regardless of what country it may be that they would protect. Unless you're Shamar Thomas, Scott Olsen or even Bradley Manning, wearing a uniform and repeating what your military leaders tell you does not make you a hero. You are not defending my rights either. I don't buy into this "support the troops" bullshit. Before you say "You don't need to support the war, but you can still support the troops," I will tell you that I support neither. It's not just the invasions alone that make me give them an overall negative attitude, it's the behavior of the US soldiers as well as what they do towards the local population of the countries they claim to protect or to be allies with. Also, there are chances that you would not even get the benefits that you would want being in there. In fact you may even end up homeless:

I could go on talking about the war crimes committed by the US military but there's just way too much to the point where they can't even be listed here.

Now about the police, they don't give a shit about you either. The police has gotten their share of white-knighting by so-called "law-abiding citizens." Being a "law-abiding citizen" doesn't mean jack shit, because the police are NOT obligated to protecting you (or anyone for that matter).([link])
Just admit it, the police HATE criticism. They HATE legitimate protests. And they HATE anyone who doesn't kiss their ass 24/7. The OWS protests are a blatant example of that. Real Life =/= Judge Dredd.

tl;dr: Authorities don't care about anything but the millions they bathe in. What part of "wake the fuck up" do you not understand?

It kind of depends on how you see the military and police. I'm sure that there are plenty of police officers and military that actually care about the people that they protect and serve. However, as the human race always shows, there are plenty of bad seeds that only either care about themselves, or a select few.

Still, it's sad to see people who just use their own power in order to gain more power, instead of helping others that need help. It's also really bad that countries like Mexico, Russia, some parts of the U.S and others have corrupt officials that don't care about their people, since really it's the people that helped them get in power in the first place.

In the United States and other western countries, the military is just used as a tool for the capitalist class and is one of the most reactionary forces out there who have a history of not only invading other countries but also suppressing oppressed people.

When you have countries like China, North Korea, Cuba and Venezuela, their military at least is willing to defend from invaders.

Well, it depends on who you ask, since people have plenty of reasons to join the military. Some have honorable reasons like wanting to help people or serving their country (I know patriotism is not your thing, but still) while others are just some scum-bags who just want to kill some foreigner they don't even know. (others probably played too many FPS's like Call of Duty) Even then, there are still jobs in the army that doesn't require you to kill anyone and you do learn things while your in the army (like skills to help with everyday life, and first-aid).

Most people in the western world have a choice of whether to join the army or not, since there isn't really any conscription nowadays (maybe except a few like Israel and Switzerland, first one I can understand when your surrounded by enemies, but Switzerland is another story of I don't know why?) the countries you listed (excluding China) possibly (I mean possibly, since this might be subject to change) have enforced conscription, so some people don't really have the choice of whether to join the army or not (maybe they do if they have a job, but I'm not an expert on how countries work anyway. so you might think I'm a bit uneducated when it comes to this subject.)

And I know that America's foreign policy is very aggressive and hypocritical (Hating North Korea for having terrible censorship while letting Saudi Arabia continue being A-holes to journalists doesn't do your policy any favors) but since I haven't really been to any communist countries like North Korea or Venezuela, I can't exactly give my opinion entirely on these countries, though I'm not a huge fan of Communism, mostly because how it has been implemented in several countries, and most people just think capitalism is probably the best option, because the whole idea is as old as trading (also, I don't like the idea of hard-working people getting the same amount as people who are lazy, maybe a system to benefit hard workers like giving them luxuries might convince me to put it in better light)

Still, I'm just a 16 year old who happens to be a fan of Sonic the Hedgehog and keeps questioning himself all the time, so chances are you might not see my opinion as well thought out. Still I got one more thing to say...

Have a nice day. :) (Smile)

China, DPRK/North Korea, Cuba and Venezuela aren't communist countries. Not even the capitalists consider them as such.

And yes, I'm fully of aware that non-combat positions exist within the US military, but given history, idk if that really says anything. The state of Israel (I mean "state") was founded on kicking out Palestinians from their home the same way the US was created out of kicking out Native Americans (mistakenly called "Indians") from their homelands.

It's funny you should say about hard-working people getting the same amount as people who are lazy because the reason why it seems like that over there as opposed to here in the West is because the US (and the rest of Western civilization including Europe, Canada, Australia and New Zealand) have exploited resources from Latin America, Asia and Africa and taking it for themselves. Japan despite not being Western has also exploited off their neighbors (in addition to conquering their lands during WWII). The US system is inherently capitalist and exploitative considering how they were founded on (kicking out Native Americans and owning black slaves, the definition of capitalism and white heterosexual male supremacy). It MAY have seem like progress has been made, but in reality, the US just placed a mask on and is still doing the same anti-Socialist, anti-Communist white heterosexual male supremacist policies that are VERY subtle rather than explicit. Getting back to the US military subject, they are often used as a tool to keeping that system alive.

I could go on about how China under Mao Zedong wasn't as bad as people say it is because Mao himself was not an "evil tyrant" the West portrays him as (in fact, China under Mao's leadership prospered and agriculture, healthcare, education, women's rights, etc. flourished when he was leader but along came those setbacks from the Great Leap Forward which was an accident) or how North Korea isn't a hellhole at all (although there are criticisms of the country that ARE true such as the lack of internet there) and Cuba's progress on eliminating poverty, hunger and disease or Venezuela's improvements under Hugo Chavez but that's for another time. It doesn't mean those countries are "awesome-sauce" because there's still issues needed to be addressed.

I laugh at people like this, what they don't realize is that the military and police keep law and order, with out them guess what happens. Anarchy, during times of anarchy people die, a lot of people. Soldiers don't fight for a dollar sign intentionally, they fight for their families. Justify your logic behind a state of lawlessness and I will recant my comment. But until than, the military and police protect your right to express yourself while groups like ISIS, North Korea, and other violent agitators be had and torture people like you.

Because you're just some nobody on the internet who thinks he knows how life works and judging by your gallery, I have to say that you're probably (and I DO mean probably):

A. Under 20
B. Liberal or Conservative
C. White
D. Male
E. Christian or part of the Nationalist faction of the Atheist community

While I, someone who is 24, who has a part-time job at a pizza joint and MAY get a second part-time job and has experienced racism (I'm half-Chinese and half-Polish btw) has real life and first-hand experience to back up what I'm saying.

And no, it is NOT "plain and simple" because that's not how it works. This is an issue that is twenty times more complex than you make it out to be.

Yes, I'm under twenty. I haven't decided which label to take seeing as both sides have their downsides. I'm black. Yes I'm a male. And no, I'm a misotheist. (In response to your "abcde" list)

I definitely know how life works. If you think someone is useless, then why are they suddenly not useless when you require their help. You don't get to call people useless and still require their help. That's what I'm saying. Your such an whiny entitled Chinese European brat that you feel the need to dismiss me when I say you're wrong.

Now, do you see what I'm saying, bro?

The fact that you call me a "whiny entitled Chinese European brat" when I'm CLEARLY 24 just shows that you don't know how life works. It clearly shows how naive you are in understanding how things REALLY work and is just reinforcing some of the things I say about you.

You are entitled.

No I am not "entitled" and you have no business bolding and italicizing that word like that to act as if you know what you're talking about. It does not work that way. I could go on and on about how typing a sentence such as this and bolding the word "are" just like this in such a context is basically the same thing as telling the person you're arguing with to eat you alive. Really, you're just ASKING me to eat you alive and you really don't want that.

If you want to be taken seriously, stop saying that in such a context to people who have been living on this planet longer than you.

You're used to people not criticizing you that when it does happen, you find non-related nonsense to diss them over and you don't even bother defending yourself.

See above.

Your age has nothing to do with your behaviour.

That is a lie. If you and I switched ages, you would NOT believe the things you are saying. And I would NEVER say "You are entitled" in such a ridiculous context to you. I repeat: NEVER. Because if I did that to you, that would do nothing more than humiliate me.

Thats bullshit. I live in the military. All my family line has been in the military. I have family that has died protecting your fucking asses. I know tons of people in the military and they are against the GOVERMENT but the job is very high paying and some people enjoy it because they are good at it. I'll be joing the Air Force soon to protect my family and country. I'll be supporting the people that support me. Not fucking blind people like you. My father was deployed 2 years away, missed the birth of his child, was stabbed when he tried to go to the bathroom, his housing unit was bombed in the middle of the night, nearly every night, just to keep America free. If we didn't have a military that wanted to be free, America would already be infested with terrorist and what not. You need to do some serious soul searching if you think the military is stupid. I've practicly raised myself around death and war but that's only made me a stronger person. I don't know about you but I support the troops.

First off, I'm an immigrant, so technically they didn't really save my ass or anything. And second, I never said every single solider in the military are like that. Yes, I agree, some people join because they want to defend this nation, and that's what I find honorable about a solider, the fact that some actually care.

I'm not saying this is true, but I'm going to wager that you're the type who will at all cost defend their nation. There's nothing wrong with that, in fact, I'm no different. I want Indonesia to be a better country, I want them to fight off the radical Islamic in the nation I was born in.

And another thing, the military is kind of corrupted, which was the point in this stamp. Some people become police officers and soldiers just for status gains.

Just to let you know, I'm AGAINST people who death threat or murder officers and soldiers. Because I'm aware that some aren't bigoted people.
