Letter: Military is model of socialism


Do you support the U.S. military and can’t stand the thought of socialism? Think about that a minute. The military is a model socialist organization.

The military is owned and operated by the government. It tells members what job they will have and where they will do it. Members are told how to dress and wear rank where easily seen so all will know where an individual belongs in the organization’s hierarchy. Pay increases are longevity based and tenure is the first component of promotions. The government provides medical care, housing and food or allowances for such. That sounds like a socialist organization.
