The road to militarization: Paved in video games?

With no universal conscription, how does the military-industrial complex entice young people into the military?

 It certainly helps to keep a substantial portion of the population poor and to limit job opportunities for people of color. But to increase the enthusiasm of adolescents for a career involving weapons, violence, and death, what could be a better avenue than video games?

Don’t assume for one minute that the arms manufacturers and the video game industry…
