American Occupation: When I was in theater, we treated people in Afghanistan better than most LEOs treat their fellow citizens. We also had strict ROE and the discipline to only escalate as necessary which we did from time to time and maintained a standard. Naturally during direct and indirect contact we engaged the enemy but that was not the majority of our encounters with the Afghan people. LEOs are employees who reflect the attitudes and policies of the people being elected. LEOs treat you like garbage because their employer pays them to. It is a very simple formula to follow. Joseph Turner

Four things need to exist or need to be in place if you want a large-scale mass phenomenon to emerge.
- The first thing is that there needs to be a lot of socially isolated people, people who experience a lack of social bonds.
- The second one is that there needs to be a lot of people who experience a lack of sense-making in life.
- And the third and the fourth conditions are that there needs to be a lot of free-floating anxiety and a lot of free-floating psychological discontent. So: meaning, anxiety, and discontent that is not connected to a specific representation.
So, it needs to be in the mind without the people being able to connect it to something. If you have these four things—lack of social bonds, lack of sense-making, free-floating anxiety, and free-floating psychological discontent—then society is highly at risk for the emergence of mass phenomenon.” – Mattias Desmet – The Psychology of Totalitarianism
