You can tread the path of militarism -- ride it high, slog through it low, make it the very form of your national being and your personal worldview -- but where, exactly, will it lead? Here's a brief examination of this question.
Will You Be Free by Chris Floyd
Will You Be Free?
When the guns no longer sound When the dead are in the ground When the foe hangs from the tree Will you be free? Will you be free?
When blood and iron rule the day When ash and bone mix with the clay And choke the fruits of victory Will you be free? Will you be free?
When the children of the slain Cry for revenge to ease their pain Lost in shadows you’ll never see Will you be free? Will you be free?
When the fear comes round again And they call for troops to send To some new war across the sea Will you be free? Will you be free?
