So – you’ve got a group of kids who want to be heros. You’ve trained them how to kill, torture, and blow shit up. But now there is a danger; they might use those skills against you. How to keep them loyal?
Hold back a portion of their earnings.
The Americans call this system “pension.” It keeps their men quiet, no matter what they are ordered to do. When ex-cops and soldiers finally do speak up, it tends to be during middle age, when they are no longer capable of fighting.
All slick employers use the long con. They promise that if only the employees will stay loyal, the long money/the big score will come….in just a few short years. Pimps in the past used this on their whores, promising that carefree and prosperous future if the whore kept humping.
The American way of war is not possible for most men over 30. Long marches, carrying 75+ lbs of kit, on little sleep and poor food is something only kids can get away with. And most of them have to use stimulants like Ripped Fuel to get up from lack of sleep and then alcohol to turn down the adrenaline at night.
Similar with cops. After about 10 years working, the job loses its shine. Injuries add up. One drinks more. It becomes a countdown to retirement.
Cops and soldiers cannot be considered good or bad. They simply obey whoever holds the money. Once, German soldiers obeyed Nazi commands. Today, they obey Liberal Nazi orders. Right, wrong?
Once, American cops enforced Jim Crow laws. Today, they too work for the Liberal Nazis. Their utility and our judgement of them comes from who they serve. If WN ever has the money and the power, cops and soldiers will serve us.
