The reason I say this is from what I've read if you do anything wrong or even breath the military will kill you. I just find it very interesting.
I don't doubt the military in the game is bad, or somewhat so. It would make sense in the world of The Last of Us to have a severely dictatorial Military to combat the Infected, gangs, to divide rations and attempt to keep order. While it does work to an extent, there will come a time when all hell breaks loose and they will resort to mass killings and other atrocities.
Haha, Hippo thanks for putting the Drake & Josh pic things. I loved that TV Show. Good times.
Drake and Josh for the win!!!
Anyways I wouldn't think the military would be like that though,in the first issue of The Last of Us about Ellie,it shows her going to the miltiary school and she's talking to a man about "Why don't you take me with you?" or something like that,and he's talking about how he has a family already and say's he can't and she than says "you mean you won't" and I'm pretty sure that was a military man,I don't think he'd do something to hurt his family or Ellie,though it could be like those movies where there's always that one good guy in the miltiary who tries to change the people but gets killed in the end.
Look at the world of today. There is always someone behind ever thing that happens. Maybe the leaders of the military are planning something important and that is why they keep things so tite and strict. If someone started peeking around they would find things the military doesn't want them to find.
