You know what? In every other civilized society you ought to be a beloved, kinda flawless human being – think Tim Curry, Keanu Reeves, Orca Flotta – in order to serve your country as an official/officer of the state. If you’re already in the police/military/administration and act assholey, you’ll be rebuked and/or kicked out.
Easy as that!
In America they might refuse your applicaton if you’re a known troublemaker/criminal/racist/corrupt/unethical asshole.
That’s kinda wrong on so many levels. 😮
And that’s why you have a president who’d be ruled unfit to serve his country in normal countries, under normal circumstances … but I guess we left the age of normalcy behind us since quite some time. 😦
