Cognitive Dissonance

Soldiers will tell you they love killing people to fight for freedom and they don’t like the government telling people what to. Yet there is nobody with fewer rights than a soldier. They are all but slaves. And further nobody gets pushed around and screwed by the government more than they do. Like slaves, they are not necessarily free to go, even if their contract said they would be on a certain date. This is what psychiatrists call cognitive dissonance.
