I dunno.. I told both of my two older kids when they were much younger that I love them, but if they ever joined the CIA, FBI, or became a cop, they couldn't come home for Christmas or Thanksgiving any more.
And if they attempted to join Uncle Sam's corporatist-defending military, all they'd get was a card, and -no- dark meat at either feast.
I told my older son that if the draft came back, or he attempted to enlist, I'd roll him up in carpet, keep him in the basement, and hand-feed him day-old pizza 'til he saw the light.
Other'n that, they're free to be (nearly) anything they wish...
Daughter's now a nurse, albeit with a weird penchant for service men.. (?WTF?) And my oldest son works a menial laborer's position with few karmic question marks around it, and a clean conscience.
