    refers to obedience that is coerced, as the service in Vietnam definitely was.
    The people who send others to die in their prime, either in war or by depriving them medical care, are passive cannibals -- participating in the destruction of their own kind to enhance their self- importance.
    People don't like admitting that they were suckered. So, pride tempts them to assent to the patriotic gloss. The problem with that is the predators who turn on their own kind aren't stopped.

    Triangulation protects the instigators from being identified and subject to revenge, but it doesn't eliminate the need of the deprived to get some recompense.
