Also, Segal said the Marine Corps has done a better job of overcoming opposition among parents of all races to having their children enlist. "My sense is that more Marines come from Marine families so the parents are already on board," he said.

sweet...so we're heading for a theocracy with a hereditary military elite.

it's often said that conservatives want to roll everything back to what it was like in 1920. I think they'd rather roll it back to what it was like in 1320. Sheesh.

Isn't it a bit of a jump between 'people often follow in the footsteps of their fathers' and 'we have a samurai-style hereditary military that operates above the law'? ;)

definitely. but i used to bitch a lot about theocracy and dominionism. this just adds on to stuff i used to talk about a year or two ago.

remember, too, that "following in the footsteps of their fathers" turns into de facto hereditary leadership, aka how budweiser, ford, and wal-mart run. they're public companies that elect children of prior management to run the company.
