This is a simple discussion. No need to get ugly. But since you mention
it, of course the winners justify themselves. So do the losers. Does it
make either right? You have to decide on a case by case basis. What does
moeny have to do with it anyway? There are hundreds of books published
of the accounts of the common man in time of war. The American Civil War
is one big example. Probably all sectors of society were sampled. Of
course, in a gov't funded school, you get what the gov't wants (or
people of other special interest).
"Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only
prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of
freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to
consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom."
