I would argue that fighting for something is a lot less emotionally taxing than fighting either because you're told to or you're being paid to.

Another interesting point to consider. Probably valid as well.

Though WWI was a pretty stupid war all around...

Sure was.  But people identified much more strongly with their nation-state than they do now.  Couple that with your argument about being adjusted to the stress of every day life, it probably made dying "for your country" an easier pill to swallow.

But WWI also learned us a lot about PTSD, no?  More or less PTSD in WWI than II?  I have no idea.  But I do know the whole concept of PTSD was born of the responses of soldiers to WWI.  I learned that in a psychology class.  To the OP's point, you don't hear about it so much surrounding WWII.  Maybe that's just because they hadn't learned anything new since WWI it was just a known thing by that time.

Or perhaps all the people who lived through the worst bits of it died. So many died in WWII.

Or if they survived they were Russian. And we didn't hear about the after-effects.

The Americans were always the hunters in WWII. Well, not always, but you get the drift.

The average person is going to starve and die.

Thus has it always been with humanity, before the advent of the Great Society.

- possible those volunteers in military can be checked in some way? - questioned - to remove from battle someone that may not be able to handle it? - is there a way to identify potential problems?

I think responsible news organizations should not mention the name of the perpetrator. And stop almost glamorizing them. I know so many of these murderers by name and recognize them instantly.

I don't think it's the idea of killing people that is put into a potential mass-murderer's mind. I think it's the notion of becoming famous from the act.

That doesn't do anything.
