12. The Assumption is that the First Group provides the safety for the latter groups.

I don't agree with It, but it's the last argument that will be made to counter your point.
We can do better with a good example instead of all this militarism. At this point, the only people I know who are getting ahead are those who are or were involved in the military.
It reminds me of Starship Troopers, but also the Nazi social model. If one was unable to serve in the military, they were worthless mouths. I see the attacks on the old, poor, young and disabled as an attack on the conscience of mankind.
I'm hoping the day will come, when the human race will get beyond this point. People have denied there is an equality of all living things on this planet, for too long. It's a mental disease, IMHO.
Your point is well made and courageous; But Americans appear to believe the military budget is sacred and so are soldiers. I do not know one family who has not had a member serve, and they will not allow any cuts to anything related to the military. You speak heresy against accepted norms but someone needs to say it.
I appreciate any effort to get people jobs. It's just that all the civilian jobs you have mentioned, that build a peaceful and creative society, are not being funded because of the MIC. Many of those who served were unable to get either the education to get those civilian jobs. It's an endless circle that keeps feeding the current state of affairs.
