“Journalists” need to have the “moral clarity” to be even more sycophantic and sanctimonious. We also need more censorship of “misinformation” because that has proven to be so effective over the past five years in restoring confidence in the PMCs who run our institutions.
“A new Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation & Institute (RRPFI) sponsored national poll on priorities and opinions of Americans on defense, military, and foreign policy issues has found a “sharp decline in trust and confidence in the U.S. Military” and a “growing ambivalence about U.S. leadership in the world.” …
From November 2018 to November 2021, trust and confidence in Congress has hovered between just five and six percent. Trust in the media has fallen again, this from from 16 to just 10 percent, while trust in the Presidency has plummeted to just 19 percent. …
Only 33 percent of adults under the age of 30 have high confidence in the military. Analysts of the poll stated that this is the “most troubling” aspect of the results, as Americans under 30 are the most likely candidates for “the all-volunteer force.” …”
Rod Dreher has an article about conservatives souring on the woke military which has suffered the largest collapse in confidence in the wake of the Pentagon’s defeat in Afghanistan.

Obviously this is anecdotal, but I hear it so often that I believe it reflects a genuine larger trend. If you are conservative, or white, or religious, or some combination thereof, why would you want to put your life on the line to serve an institution whose leadership and whose policies hold you in contempt, or at least consider you to be a culturally backward heathen in need of conversion to wokeness? When my middle son, now 17, was enthusiastic last year about the military, I told him that service is honorable, and that I would support him whatever he decided, but that I did not want him to be in a position in which he had to disobey his conscience or disobey his commanding officer. He got it. He no longer plans on going into the military. …”
Elbridge Colby thinks the United States should defend Taiwan.
There are even people in the foreign policy establishment who think that Gen Z is willing to go to war with Russia over eastern Ukraine.
Note: Joe Biden forced everyone in the military to get the vax and has done everything humanely possible to undermine and polarize the institution by taking stands on divisive cultural issues.
