Very interesting. Did not know he was still around. Telling too, how he attempts to demonize the bombing of WWII and obfuscate and confuse the actions taken when he was in charge of a war that was a totally different thing. The belief system that communism was a spreading cancer and needed to be opposed by military force at every turn, proved to be faulty and got us involved in insurgencies that could not be won and would kill mass numbers of people with no different outcome except the profits to the makers of helicopters, planes, Napalm, M-16s etc. World War II was necessary to prevent world conquest by fascist empires, and though many civilians lost their lives, in the case of Japan the fascists would not give up until it was clear that the whole country would be incinerated if they did not. All I know is that Eisenhower was right to warn about the “Military Industrial Complex” If McNamara worked for Johnson, his belief system must have had a rigid hold for him not to see that the war was not about saving the world and more about profits of the MIC.

Anyone that can talk about killing 100,000 people and be that lacking in emotion are scary!
For the destruction he oversaw I find he he has no soul…..
Could that brief show of tears be learned? As in “oh… one of ours… my fault… I better show sorrow”?
You know how certain personality types can mimic normal empathy so to blend in?

He reminds me of my father….. 😐

belief systems can make casualties seem a tool for furthering the system

That is a really sick belief system. 🤔

I enjoy the work, but your emphasis on “belief systems” adds very little. It seems as if you’re against “belief systems” but that is absurd, for you are expounding a belief system therein. Like a Nihilist saying there is no objective truth. Would you please explain what you mean when you say “belief system” ?

smile Not my first video on belief system. I’ve watched most all of your content, that’s why I paid the subscription fee, as I said, I like the work. The “belief system” thing has been bothering me for some time. I assumed that I was missing something, so I asked for clarification ^ You didn’t answer the question and you came back with an insult. You seem defensive, I don’t see why. It’s also not the best way to treat your customers.

Not an insult an observation. As you stated “you’re against “belief systems”” you would know I have stated, I have my own, if you had watched most of my videos. I would suggest joining class for clarification. I honestly dont understand what you dont understand about the believing, in belief systems.

It was an observation not an insult? That’s a good example of your belief system. Thanks for the clarification.
