5/3/19 David Swanson on the Decline in Military Recruitment

David Swanson joins the show to talk about the decline in military recruitment, which the secretary of the navy recently tried to explain away by falsely claiming that thousands of high schools have started denying access to recruiters, something they are legally barred from doing. Swanson points out, however, that the real reason for low recruitment is that the American people are getting fed up with the endless wars. The young people coming of age today were born during the wars we’re still fighting, so they grew up with a sense of their futility and an understanding that they might never end.

Discussed on the show:

David Swanson is an author, activist, journalist, radio host, and Nobel Peace Prize Nominee. He is the author of War is a Lie and When the World Outlawed War. Find him on Twitter @davidcnswanson.
