“We have the best infantry in the world because every American can shoot someone without thinking about it. Everyone here plays video games, and there’s violence on TV all the time. Of course, most of them go crazy afterwards because it’s not a video game. You can kill someone in a video game, but once you do it to a living person in the real, physical world, it goes into your memory bank—and doesn’t leave.
“We also have more PTSD than other armies, because it’s almost impossible to kill an American soldier in the field since our technology is so good. But that just means we experience more combat before we have to go back, so we have more time to get traumatized. Most American casualties are due to madness—PTSD. That’s why we veterans don’t get jobs: other Americans are afraid of us because we’re crazy. We’ve been out in the world, outside of TV. We don’t fit in the workplace: In the American empire more than 70% of the jobs are service jobs, and you’re supposed to like everybody. But when you’re a veteran, you don’t like everybody. Your brain has been changed by what you did over there—it’s been rewired. They don’t have a treatment for that. They have rapid eye movement therapy, and I’ve done that. It takes the edge off, but you never go back to being the same person you were before.”
