    Take his car key away. Drive him home.

    If he thinks of what he does as other than a video game, he may very well suffer PTSD.

    This is why we shouldn’t be sending drones after American citizens.

    There is a Robin Williams movie from about 20 years ago called “Toys”. If you haven’t seen it, it is almost scary today. It is about a traditional toy company that begins using video games to train children to fight wars with drones. Apparently, somebody else saw the movie and thought it was a great idea.

    Yes, I enjoy Orson Scott Card’s style. Ironically, I came back here to post that, in regards to my previous post, I keep getting a popup on this site for a “Call of Duty” game.

    Not only cowardly, but totally unconstitutional. google “Bill of Attainder” and see why our constitution specifically forbids it (Article I section 9)

    But it’s a great way to cut down on our own casualties!! Insurance companies save, the military can cut down on personnel, not to mention the logistics involved in transporting tens of thousands of fully armed combat troops. The companies that build the drones do good business.

    Hey! It’s a win-win proposition.

    And any teeny-bopper with joystick experience is qualified to pilot an explosive drone. More fun than any video game. And the look of terror on the victim’s face (however fleeting the view may be) is DY-NO-MITE!

    Ain’t technology wonderful???

    This. Shell shock/battle fatigue/operational exhaustion/PTSD is from seeing the horror and feeling guilt associated with fighting a war. It’s never been treated enough. Not after WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, or any of the conflicts in the Middle East.

    In fact, even the Nazi Death Squads suffered from nervous breakdowns and had to be rotated. Sort of reassuring, actually — even those driven by categorically evil principles and convinced they are doing the “right thing” killing innocent people still get hurt by watching others get hurt and die.

    The Nazi’s invented the death camps because individual soldiers could only shoot so many people before they would break down and quit.

    Plus one to that. Taking a life, even under the most justifiable circumstances, tends to mess a person up, unless they are sociopaths.

    Since you seem to be mining the depths of psychology, maybe you could enlighten us as to what encourages such behavior? I believe if you could get to the root cause of the problem it might be more constructive socially. After all, people aren’t born “chickenhawk gun nuts.”

    I’m afraid I’d have to see evidence of your premise for the statement “guilt at having taken so many other lives.”


    My own personal experience, many, many others that I have known and cared for, whether serving in harms way or not suffer from PTSD. Women and children victims of domestic, sexual and physical abuse are not initiators of violence. Auto accident victims didn’t initiate the violence against them. Policemen, firemen and paramedics function in a completely opposite role than the initiator yet often suffer from PTSD. I included a link that is not a “scholarly” article, but one that I think illuminates the circumstances around PTSD.
