02/04/11 – Kathleen Barry – The Scott Horton Show

by | Feb 4, 2011 | Interviews

Kathleen Barry, feminist activist and author of Unmaking War, Remaking Men, discusses the social forces at work in the military indoctrination process; how replacing the ‘self,’ and notions of morality, with a ‘buddy system’ of unrelenting devotion to comrades engenders disregard for human life and guarantees atrocities against enemies seen as sub-human; the artificial social construct of masculinity, used as a guarantor of patriarchy and military service; and why a purely defensive military, used as a global peacekeepking force, is both possible and desirable.
