If people want to honor military personnel, I’ve no issue with that. But if you start demanding that we honor the military itself, I do have a problem.
The military is just another extension of governmental might. Imagine if someone insisted that we adore the IRS or the CDC. Sounds a bit daft, doesn’t it?
Encouraging citizens to adore the military as an organization tends to push a country in a direction that rarely leads to more personal freedom or civil liberties.
I recently saw an article that discussed a rising trend in some countries where the citizens want a more-authoritarian and militaristic government. Polls show some people in those countries actually wanting the military to be the government. Not I. I like having civilian control over our military.
