US Marine Corps expect people to think like them.
US Air Force expect people to think like them.
US Army expect people to think like them.
US Navy expect people to think like them.
US Coast Guard expect people to think like them.
US Civilians expect people to think like them.
...all the while forgetting that every last individuals experience is different, translated differently by that individual's experience.
Civilians can't understand military and military can't understand civilian because most of the time they BOTH are too stupid to remember that the life experiences are different.
That the goals are different. That the past experiences temper how one sees the present.
Experience or lack there of, dictates how one is able to relate or understand.
And when one is used to someone normally getting it, it's a huge betrayal when even the one is using language that using the other can understand, they don't!
They don't get it.
You can't talk it out in the normal left-wing or right-wing methods.
Somebody has to shut the fuck up.
Someone has to humble themselves to the point of listening.
And when they don't, they can't get pissy and claim you're trying to be all "victimy". ( Totally a word!)
You can hear someone all day long.
Whether or not you've listened shows through in how you treat that person.
