Kill! Kill! Kill!

Chinese, American, Russian, Turkish, Israeli, Chilean ... was there ever a time and ever a country that didn't do what it could to promote the patriotic and glorious potential of joining a military tribe?
With fast cuts and a rap-style sing-along tune, the Chinese military is reaching out to the young people it needs to fill its enormous ranks.
The lyrics appear on screen so there's no mistaking the message: "Always think about the mission; the enemy forever in your eyes."
And there's the question: "Wars can break out at any time. Are you ready?"
Like prison, there's an upside in down times: Three hots and a cot. That and, armed with glistening fire power, a sense that perhaps helplessness can be kept in check. Don't fuck with me!

  1. We don't have a debtors prison. But we do have a work house for the poor.
