In the U.K., the central military command is facing an unexpected problem: The U.K. Government cannot find sufficient eligible recruits for its elite team, the SAS, or SPECIAL AIR SERVICE.
As the BBC puts it: “In the letter to the head of the Army, Gen Sir Peter Wall, he said he had deep concerns over the “challenge of fully manning the SAS” and urgent action was needed to improve the “depth and quality” of potential recruits.”
For those unfamiliar with the British Military, the SAS is a group of Elite Soldiers capable of fighting behind enemy lines and inflicting great damage, far beyond their numbers.
The men who can do this are exceptionally intelligent, physically impressive and totally without fear. This combination qualities is very rare and thus these soldiers are an Elite group.
The history of the SAS is a monument to Nationalism, or the sacrifice of the individual for the benefit of the nation.
The SAS was started during the Second World War, when Britain was fighting for its life against Germany. The SAS in that period of time was an example of Elite troops endeavouring to save an entire nation by their skill and courage.
Here is the history from Wiki:
“The Special Air Service or SAS is a special forces regiment of the British Army that has served as a model for the special forces of many other countries all over the world. The Special Air Service together with the Special Boat Service (SBS), Special Reconnaissance Regiment (SRR), and the Special Forces Support Group (SFSG) form the United Kingdom Special Forces under the command of the Director Special Forces.
While the Special Air Service traces its origins to 1941 and the Second World War, it gained fame and recognition worldwide after successfully assaulting the Iranian Embassy in London and rescuing hostages during the 1980 Iranian Embassy Siege, lifting the regiment from obscurity outside the military establishment.”
TODAY, ELITE TROOPS ARE NOT JOINING
The British Government in the last two years are not finding enough elite troops willing to join the SAS.
This what a former SAS trooper has to say:
“Former SAS soldier Robin Horsfall told the BBC joining the elite service no longer had the same appeal.
He said: ‘Soldiers are seeing active service, all of them are seeing active service, for long protracted periods of time. Having been on the battlefront it’s less alluring for them to want to go into a more dangerous situation with special forces because they know what battle really is.’ “
In other words, getting killed in battle is not as important or glorious as it once was, because there is no end to the wars that the Brits are entering.
Since the end of the Second World War, the U.K. and the U.S. have experienced an endless series of wars. Apart from Korea and Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan and even Pakistan have all been invaded. These wars are not defensive in nature. They are a means for obtain the subterranean oil wealth of these nations.
The soldiers have realized this. No longer are they defending their country. Now, they are merely statistical toys of that branch of government called the Military. Why tempt fate, when the odds of dying as a Special Forces trooper are much higher than that of a non-volunteer, drinking beer in London?
THERE IS A MUCH LARGER PROBLEM
Students of Evolution have been debating, for the last century: “Where is Mankind going?”
The population of the world is exploding. Resources are getting even shorter. The climate has changed to one that is unfriendly to the production of food.
The people that are contributing most to the overpopulation, contribute the least to the solution of social problems, like health, hygiene, food supply and pollution.
The only reason that the population is still growing is because the elite elements of the human species, provide the technological solutions to overpopulation. They confront the deadly forces of starvation and thirst and movement with the technological resources so prevalent in modern society.
Without Elite Forces, such as engineers, doctors and research scientists, there would be no overpopulation.
Mankind would have stopped growing over a century ago. Disease, insufficient water and constant internecine struggle would have sent mankind back to the jungle where it would battle and lose against bacteria, viruses and an insufficient food supply.
WHERE IS IT ALL LEADING?
The students of evolution know that the “fittest survive.”
Throughout the history of life, no specie carries another completely on its back. There are many cases of Symbiosis where two species help each other, but the species are both uniquely distinct; not different in the level of their ability to function in any area.
In the case of the human species, we are seeing a quantitative difference in function. Some humans are better in logic or math or verbal functioning. Also, some humans are willing to work harder or longer to achieve their goals.
As we saw with the SAS, some people are willing to risk their lives for the welfare of the group.
If we continue on the present path we will end up with an overflowing population of people with very high fertility supported by a small capable group of specially trained individuals with low fertility.
Ultimately, a system such as that described above has to fail. No amount of technology can overcome the destructive forces of nature. As we have seen in the recent past, earthquakes, drought and floods can destroy any human group, within hours or days.
ELITES FIGHTING EACH OTHER
There are two groups of elites in the 21st Century. One group, which is sustained by large capital interests and which controls most governments, is intent on convincing the the other group of elites to sacrifice themselves forÂ the good of humanity: “Work harder! Pay more taxes! Don’t ask questions! It’s all for the good of Humanity!”
The students of evolution are asking each other: ‘When will this Charade end? And, how will it end?”
Evolution is a rolling stone which doesn’t stop. The case of the SAS is forewarning sign. The elites are deciding that they have little desire in killing themselves “for the group.”
In countries all over the world, highly trained individuals are leaving their homelands, seeking other geographical localities where governments do not demand that they sacrifice for the group.
As the song says: “The answer, my friend, is blowing in the Wind. The answer is blowing in the Wind.”
