Throw it all away
Lets lose ourselves
Cause there's no one left for us to blame
Its a shame we're all dying
And do you think you deserve your freedom

How could you send us all far away from home
When you know damn well that this is all
I would still lay down my life for you

And do you think you deserve your freedom
No I don't think you do

There's no justice in the world

There's no justice in the world

And there never was

    General CommentSeems a totally rational letter home from a soldier to his or her country asking wtf... why would anyone instigate a war if they had any idea as to it’s absolute madness, his frustration shining through the way he drops “...this is all...”.

    “Do you deserve your freedom?” is a legit question... we’re ok sending men and women far from home to do HORRIBLE things, using psychological training on them to get the “kill rate” (the % of soldiers actually shooting at the enemy with the intent to kill them) up from 2% in WWII to 98% in modern wars. The majority of humans have no wish to kill each other, that 2% from WWII bears it out, yet now we’ve conditioned these soldiers to shoot to kill as a conditioned response... we’ve turned normal folk into killers with psychology so now we’ll just deprogram them... oh, we can’t do that? We turned normal people into killers but never gave one thought about what that does to them or how to help them?

    There’s no justice in the world...

    ...and there never was.
