By the way, I don't agree with the writer in the link about astronauts and draft dodgers. DD's are not heroes. They dress their selfish acts as though they're "independent" thinkers with a conscience. Nonsense.
The above is a comment by The Commentator on the very same post. Can't say I agree with it completely, though I suppose the sentiment is understandable. Personally I don't see astronauts or "draft dodgers" as "heroes", but maybe that's just me. If those who fled the draft did indeed "dress the act as though they were independent thinkers with a conscience" meaning, I guess, that they pretended they were simply being noble and right in opposing an unjust war, rather than engaging in the simple act of saving their own ass, I can't disagree. Then again, there is nothing wrong with fleeing to save your own ass when someone (government) is attempting to force you into involuntary servitude, servitude which will just happen to also expose you to great bodily harm or death.
A very good post by The Commentator, by the way, and there are more where that came from. A highly recommended blog.
