Looking through the gash threa that grew around the prison book, I got to wondering.Are squaddies (with any real time in uniform) more apt to aaply physical violence in there lives than never-served. I am not talking PTSD here. In our training, we are taught to bypass the normal human disconnect between reason and escalation to physical, often horrendous, violence. How else to describe bayonet drills?If commanded to violence, we are expected to perform it without pause, and in civvy life, we are the master and commander of ourselves. I'm thinking that neural networks are developed (in conjunction with patterned/ learned adrenal response) which never go away, and in certain situations manifest in antisocial behaviour.Perhaps it's just me, but I don't think so. Most of my ex-mob friends are somewhat less than averse to dishing a well-deserved shoeing to a right **** who has it coming.Any thoughts?
