9. Given that the enlisted ranks are almost 100% working class, the
ruling class depending on the enlisted soldiers to attack the people will be a dicey proposition, imho. Sure, enlisted folks are trained to follow the chain of command, but if ordered to fire on fellow working class civilians, I think you might see that chain of command start to disintegrate pretty quickly.
