42. Understanding the cause of crimes
is always the hardest part. It's a difficult concept that our reptilian brains mainly reject and which requires higher level thinking to grasp. For example look at most of the criminal codes of the world prior to the late 20th century. Punishment (sometimes far exceeding the nature of the crime) was common, acts of mercy or leinency were rare doles from the Monarch.

I would hope the DUers do not allow their hatred of the regime and it's policies to overcome reasoned understanding of what people are going through over there. Servicemembers
Of course, the question is does the military have a higher or lower percentage of "deviant" personality types than society due to the majority of the service being made up of middle/lower income persons and mainly men?

I do have a question: When you say racism is deep-seated within large parts of the military, what do you mean?
