Duty and Morality

Okay the army men take orders from their bosses only to execute them without question because the duty of a soldier is to obey not question! So how can a machinery that is prohibited to question or even think can be made the yardstick for measuring the patriotism level of a civilian when the duty of patriot is to protect his country from his govt??
Because as far as I know sth called military has been involved in nearly every war every genocide every human conflict and every genocidal rape throughout the human history. And we must not forget our founding fathers and mothers were some of the most defiant, rational and thinking beings of their times.
As long as there are borders as long as there are standing armies as long as there is the concept of us and them the world will never know peace. So I believe pioneers of a warless world will be the youths who will abstain themselves from military service!
As Rabindranath Tagore said I will not buy glass for the price of diamonds, and I will never allow patriotism to triumph over humanity. So let’s just choose humanity over those narrow domestic walls as there are many bourgeois elites who are ready to sacrifice millions of poor for their quarrels so lets just allow those rich fight their own wars!
Let’s love humans not chunks of land!!
