Removing the barrier to kill

Daily Pickings has referred to how humans are reluctant to kill other humans and that distance is a primary factor in removing the barrier to kill. Ben Griffin explains how, through psychological conditioning, today's soldier is much more likely to kill than his predecessors in two world wars - the numbers are startling. Something like 90% today versus 10% previously. Ben explains the principal methods used to break down the barriers to killing another human being.

It is unfortunate that Ben uses the holocaust to explain "compartmentalisation"; although he's woken up the reality of his own experience and that of other verterans, he has yet to discover the lies and deception relating to two world wars and the holocaust.

Critical Thinking is a journey of discovery and the learning never ceases.
