Chapter 2 - The Military Enlistment Document Is Fraudulent
Military recruiters scour high school campuses and social media sites to find unwitting youth to agree to the terms of the fraudulent DD Form 4, the military’s Enlistment/Reenlistment Document. School, municipal, and state officials have a fiduciary duty to protect students from this predatory arrangement.
This isn’t an agreement. An agreement would imply the existence of two capable parties. 18-year-olds typically don’t have a clue what they’re signing and that’s because the schools aren’t teaching them the skills necessary to survive in our corporatized society. Vulnerable youth are incapable of negotiating the contracts (credit, student loans, insurance, leasing, etc.) that rule their lives. They’re red meat.
This reality is in stark contrast to the relationship between the governments of our allies and their potential recruits. Germany, for instance, encourages members of its armed forces to join associations representing their interests. Throughout much of the world, militaries are subservient to the will of democratic parliaments. In the U.S., Congress exercises financial and regulatory authority over the military, but the military also exerts tremendous influence over Congress. That’s because the military is sacred in the eyes of the public and Congress is not.
The military enlistment document is fraudulent.
