23. We have to stop worshiping uniforms

Not everyone who wears a uniform is a hero. Some of things at play: We're overcompensating for the way GIs were treated upon returning from Vietnam. The image of uniformed personnel rushing to their deaths attempting to save victims of the attack on the World Trade Center. That and we've been intimidated by propaganda to believe that there's a threat just around every corner and the constabulary will protect us. It's far more than free donuts and coffee.
