      The wingnuts play this Heinlein dystopic meme, but they don't really mean it. (To be exact, they don't mean anything, because you have to have something in your mind to mean anything).

      If you need to repel wingnuts, just wave a military recruiter's business card at them, they will recoil as would a vampire from garlic.

      Perhaps they mean an artistocracy where the lower class can only earn rights and citizenship by military service, and the upper class has all the rights without military service. The thing is, the wingnuts are dim enough to believe they are in the upper class.

      The wolfpack eats venison. The lone wolf eats mice.
