We are the opposite Hahahahaha.
I wish I could stay in Canada forever.
I love Canada. Every time I go there is an adventure for me. I love the country and wish I could stay there instead of going back to my native Mexico.

Whatever. This looks AWESOME!!!
And who wouldn't like an space adventure anyway?
Terrific job.

I want to help protect Australia and other places, and the police do a crappy job at it. Also the Australian army is a great place to work :)

i understand, you wanna help. i like that, but i'm convinced that you can't change something to the better by forcing it.
maybe you meant to help in general but there are enough other ways to do so than the army...
the problem is that the word "protecting" in this case has been transformed dramatically.

look at it this way:
how does this "protection" look like? is it really "protection"? if you take a closer look you'll find out that maybe your intentions are really to protect, which is commendable. but what we have here are two things going on: the intentions, the power that drives you and then on the other hand the actions, the things you actually do.
so what i mean by 'the word "protecting" has been transformed' is that it may seem as you are doing something for your people but exactly THAT'S the problem; you're doing something for "your people". what!? do you see what's happening? suddenly humanity is being seperated, nations and countries become individual powers acting against each other, fighting wars, PROTECTING theirselves from EACH OTHER.
how can protection be something positive if it's hurting others? it isn't. we're taught this way but it is just one way for the politicians (or any people in position of power) to keep control. by teaching us that the others are the problem.

i'm not trying to drum my ideas into you, what i really want is for people to think. to question basic facts, to check them for theirselves and see if they make sense. not to just follow blindly but to constantly be aware and cautious. but watch out! not being AGAINST everything but the opposite: being open. open but always aware.
this is what all those quotes say, talking about wisdom, freedom and whatnot.


wisdom can only come from wisdom, love can only emerge from being loved, freedom from being free.
so i think although the army may give you some really good chances to the help in general, the very basic concept of it is not positive and therefore not capable of REALLY helping.

That's a really good way of looking at it but if my I just wanted to protect I'd have joined those police officers. I'm not sure if you're from Australia but I've seen and heard the Australian air force, army and the navy and even though it puts my life at risk the ADF is great :) they're against everything that reminds you of "bad" (other then shooting when nessesary)

The thing I love about the ADF the most is that they help and protect people in the most perfect way ever (unlike police officers). I went to there 2020 defence challenge in year 9 and I could have sworn then and there that if my parents let me I would have joined at 17!

The ADF doesn't just go shoot at anyone who is doing something bad, they give medical assistance in third world countries, stop pirate ships, rescue refugees, promote white ribbon day (a campain to stop violence against women), help other third world countries and they encourage women to join them!

The ADF is like the police only better in so many ways :)
