First published Dec 18, 2018 • Revised Feb 10, 2021There may be light at the end of the uniformed tunnel. Brave souls like former Second Lt. Spenser Rapone still manage to exist and speak out. And it is only fair to say that the Army has acted with unusual mildness toward this unique dissenter. In fact, the official paper, ArmyTimes has published a number of stories on Rapone, but in none do we see the kind of rabid hatred or venom reserved for apostates of his caliber, not just an anti-imperialist, but a man now of socialist convictions. ArmyTimes, in fact, quotes him at some length. Which is extremely curious. In other words, they did not or could not suppress his witness entirely. (1) Try to figure that one out. We'll have to ask Spenser about that, when we get a chance. Meantime, here's his well structured, inspiring interview with Chris Hedges.
