A Moral Institution? Examining the Methods, Consequences, and Motives of Modern MilitariesPublic

Is the military a moral institution? This question is central to both the project and my life as I approach my commissioning into the US Air Force as a Second Lieutenant. Having established freedom as the essential condition for human existence, I wanted to know if the military currently is or could ever be used to create a world that offers its inhabitants greater opportunities to define their lives. The military was described as an integral part of the government enacting diplomacy by other means, and the institution was subsequently subjected to a rigorous analysis of its methods, consequences, and motives, culminating with my conclusions on the moral state of the military.
