First off, it is quite evident that the United States, which for years has been losing internal state legitimacy, is in crisis. (It’s already lost external state legitimacy, the Trump brand reportedly now distrusted by three-fourths of the world.) This means that a majority of American citizens no longer believe that the political and economic elites are working in the public interest. Once this happens, to cite Humpty Dumpty: “all the king’s horses [the police and military apparatuses] and all the king’s men [loyal state officials and publicity agents] couldn’t put Humpty [state legitimacy] together again.”
I have worked with a number of whistleblowers who say that the USMC/DON recruits young marines and seamen for 20 and back assignments with a secret space corps that provides personnel for major corporations that have colonies on Mars.The earliest cases begin from 1976, which I note coincides with your recruitment into the USMC.
