Should military training be curtailed because of serial killers?
There’s a strong correlation between violent serial killers and military training. Here’s one article
One theory is the military intentionally desensitizes people about killing to the point that they more easily become serial killers when things go bad. Another theory is that sociopaths are drawn to the military where they learn how to kill and then go do what they were always inclined toward.
In either case, it seems like these are arguments against supplying “killer” training. I imagine that most people in the military never hold a gun in battle. I understand that in earlier eras that was not the case and so everyone needed to be ready to kill. But It’s just not the way things work now.
So would you support your military giving “killer” training only to soldiers who are designated for the front lines?
