Dopamine “programming or pushing a button is NOT easier”

Having an IOF infantry Marine Corps veteran as a husband and working with many military and veteran clients I can tell you there is NOT a moral disconnect between those who push bomb buttons or run drones and infantry. Whether you’re shooting a child that’s coming at you with IEDs strapped to her or your blowing up a building you just saw a child walk into, emotionally you conscious mind stores that as a moral failing. There is no choice is war. You do what your told. You do what you have to to protect your brothers and sisters. But the emotion impact is the same as pushing the guy in front of the train. Button or no button. A lot of work has to be done to repair that trauma.

Great podcast now get better!

Love the podcasts. Would like to see it advance and be an in studio environment vs Skype or whatever they are currently doing. I think a lot of these topics could be much more interesting at the 2-3 hour range.
