The Taboo of Confronting Soldiers

I’ve made a number of videos addressing the police and military over the past several years trying to get them to recognize the danger of our current situation and where we are headed. Part of this involves reminding them of their oath, because this gives us a point of reference, and it makes it clear that what we are asking isn’t something extraordinary, it’s just asking them to keep the promise they already made.

A lot of soldiers hear the message and deal with the ideas on their own merits, but there are always one or two who like to claim that a civilian has no right to address soldiers in this way, and even though many people wouldn’t come right out and say it it seems that there is a general taboo in our culture against confronting soldiers regardless of the circumstances. My goal in this video is to put that taboo in its place.
