JC provides some good insight on the differences between subordinating one’s self and being subservient. Makes a huge difference….
A serious issue that I’ve seen in the Liberty/Patriot/Militia is the perception that those of us with prior military service look down on civilians as serfs to be shunned and ostracized for their lack of martial ability. A friend has used the analogy of Adults compared to children, and this has been made into an “Us vs Them” theme by the ignorant, as if we are in competition.
There is no competition in this arena, simply because the requisite skills are not present in civilians to be competitors. Going to an SUT class or four does not put you on par with an infantryman who did one enlistment (it’s like comparing little league with a farm league team). Those who generally push that you are on par have an agenda, and that agenda usually has a price tag attached, and it has to do with attending their class.
