|Generally speaking, the soldier's role as provider of security is secondary to his role in propaganda. Regardless of an individual soldier's motivation in joining the military, his primary function is to serve as a rallying cry for the fellow subjects of his state. The nefarious motives behind wars, the endless political treacheries, and the massive fortunes accumulated by military industries must all hide behind the image of the soldier. He is portrayed as the best reflection of a grateful society, and elevated to the shining status of a religious icon, in the hope of blinding everyone to the cesspool of narcissism, corruption, and corporatism behind every war.|
