Thread Name: Discussion: Universal Soldier
Subject: RE: Universal soldier and Codine
I always thought that the Universal solder was in fact as it says on the tin. You and me!. I thought (even when I had the ability to think before age got me by the accidentals) that WE, YOU and ME, US. We were the universal soldiers. We did the voting, we did the acceptance, we did the wepons manufacture, we paid the taxes, some of "we" did the shooting etc etc.
The "ah but" brigade who want to be democratic only when the vote goes their way, may argue this. But in the 60's (when I was old enough to vote) I was violently against violence. "Kill the Warmongers, Smash violence" I used to chant.
Simple people, Simple times.
