You're so radically blinded it's not even remotely funny. Can't you understand that soldiers are rarely, if ever, given all the info about an operation? They DON'T KNOW a lot of the things that happen as a result of following orders.
It's not a matter of morality or maturity, but sheer ignorance. Get over yourself man.
I do not think there would be a standing army in a free society.
And that is why there will never be a society like that on earth with something that other nations want. why do you think armies were brought about in the first place. They are called department of defense for a reason.
BTW, I'm quite sure in the "free society" the people would want some kind of national force to protect them.
