Soldier
When you join any military force you become a tool for the government or any big corporation influencing the policies of that government. You give them absolute power over you to decide what is correct and you have to blindly accept any commands. Be it, destroying a village, arresting innocent people, decimating infrastructures, replacing non-compliant rulers, invading sovereign countries, etc.

All of this is done with some type of excuse, most of the time some quite ridiculous excuse, and no matter how much you realize that you are supporting an unfair, corrupt or evil action, you have to obey because you are just a tool for war.

The reality is that no war is justified and most of them are made to answer to special interests, be it stealing oil, stealing land or protecting what was already stolen. Through our military actions we can only win enemies,  create terrorists and fuel extremism.

The most powerful force is the one that is used non-violently and is powered by good intention for the good of us all, and for equality without exceptions. So, put down your weapons, the military is full of good people with good intentions but the ones at the top giving the orders are the true enemy. Leave the armed forces and join the forces of peace and the grassroots movements that defend the people, the environment and the animals.
We need people like you!
