Thread Name: BS: How low can you go?
Subject: RE: BS: How low can you go?
I do not mean to imply that intelligence = morality.

I do mean to question the motives of the military for requiring aptitude tests at all. The fact that they have such testing must have some meaning for the military. It is probably 'aptitude' for military service. Does this mean that those with lower 'aptitude' are less suitable for military service? Is that what we want? Soldiers who are unsuitable for service?

Yes, I do question the intelligence of Lyndie England for her unquestionable loyalty. In fact I question the intelligence of anyone with unquestionable loyalty or blind faith. Without knowing the type of test given, I would assume that the military is lowering their standard for recruits.

What do you think the military aptitude test measures and why do think what was once unacceptable is now acceptable?
