WHY OUR BEST OFFICERS ARE LEAVING THE MILITARY: “Increasingly, the military is creating a command structure that rewards conformism and ignores merit. As a result, it’s losing its vaunted ability to cultivate entrepreneurs in uniform.”

Also, it’s become extremely PC, which is no fun for the kinds of people who make good military officers.

UPDATE: A reader emails: “Gee, take away merit, enforce conformism and political correctness and the best of the best check out. I wonder if this same kind of thing could happen in the country at large? What’s that Ms. Rand? You have insight on that?” Like I said, it’s Ayn Rand’s world, we’re just living in it.
