Subject: RE: BS: How low can you go?
Of course, if a child were raised in a "military" family, they would probably be as curious as any child about their family's occupation and the historical significance. I would also assume that military service would be somewhat, glorified. To most children in B.C., military service is, at best, a necessary evil and something to be avoided. What child wants to kill or be killed?

I would say that, generally, an interest in war and in the military is fostered by the family or in the society in which they live.
