In the absence of fear of the enemy their men will not be willing to thoughtlessly kill many men, women and children to achieve a conventional military success. Thus conventional military leaders have promoted thoughtless fear. The thoughtless fear of military training carries over into civilian life and leads political leaders in their decision making. It is not possible to separate the patterns of thought of conventional military leaders from the patterns of thought of civilian leaders. That which is required for conventional military success comes to be regarded as normal and proper for civilian leaders. The dishonesty which is central to the collusions of military leaders becomes pervasive in civilian political leadership as military leaders return to take up civilian leadership roles. When dishonesty has played a central roles in the collusive games of mutual self deception of military leaders it is absurd to expect that there will be honesty in military preparations with contractors of military business. The whole process of preparation for a modern conventional military success lacks integrity. It is therefore absurd to expect conventional military leaders to demonstrate personal and communal integrity in drawing up and following military budgets. To expect military leaders to demonstrate personal integrity is part of the process of participating in military collusions; games of mutual self deception which must be played to be willing to kill enough men, women and children so as to succeed militarily.
