Army gets $117 million for emotional training

This article ties in to our American Government class because it shows the difference in opinion of humans like we've been talking about. This program's goal is to end the thought of talking about feelings showing weakness. On one side, you have those who say it is a way too "touchy-feely" approach and on the other they say it is a good idea in developing "Post-traumatic growth." Another question would be is $117 million a bit too drastic for the emotional training of the army? All together I think this ties in to the quote "If humans were angels, we would need no government," meaning everyone would have the same opinion and this debate wouldn't be necessary in the first place.
