How the military brainwashes its members.

  1. Upon arrival, the initiation involves instructors tearing them down emotionally and insulting them to make them feel inferior. To doubt themselves and accept the authority of those of higher ranks.
  2. Convince them they are different than those not part of the military cult, calling others "civilians". Everyone is put into these two groups.
  3. Barracks have everyone living together, having the same thing as everyone else, dressing the same. This removes all privacy or control over their environment. They are forced to shower together with others.
  4. They are isolated from outside emotional support or input.
