A Pathology of Militarism
A report from Dr RS Bloom MD, MRCP
The condition of militarismus praecox is endemic and highly contagious. It appears in various forms and produces violent mutations and behavioural disorders. in severe cases treatment is long and painstaking. It may involve dissection of a diseased knot of distorted reflexes. The therapeutic aim is to redirect the flow of energy away from an unhealthy craving for death and destruction and towards life and creativity. If untreated the disease may rage out of control and spread rapidly through society.
