The Militarization of Boys

NEWS FROM THE CELTIC LEAGUE

Celtic League is often criticised for having an anti-militarist perspective and we were especially vocal about the recent armed forces reserves recruitment initiative in Mann.

We have also been outspoken over the age of recruitment (16) and the propaganda used to interest even younger people e.g., the cadet forces.

But hey, maybe we are going a bit over the top! Perhaps a younger perspective would be more illuminating (see Youtube link).

We recommend it for viewing to the ludicrously titled ‘Armed Forces Champion’ Juan Watterson MHK, and of course our friends in the media, especially up at Manx Radio.
