The clip Military life from The Meaning of Life (1983) with Graham Chapman, Michael Palin It's all very well to laugh at the military, but when one considers... ...the meaning of life, it's a struggle between alternative viewpoints of life. Without the ability to defend one's own viewpoint... ...against other more aggressive ideologies... ...then reasonableness and moderation could quite simply disappear. That is why we'll always need an army. May God strike me down were it to be otherwise. Don't stand there gawping... ...like you've never seen the hand of God before! Now, today we're going to do marching up and down the square. That is, unless any of you've got anything better to do. Well? Anyone got anything they'd rather be doing... ...than marchin' up and down the square? Yes! Atkinson. What would you rather be doing, Atkinson? To be quite honest, Sarge, I'd rather be home with the wife and kids. Would you now? Yes, Sarge. Right. Off you go. Now. Everybody else happy with my little plan... ...of marching up and down the square a bit? Sarge? Yes? I've got a book I'd quite like to read. Go read your book then. Now! Everybody else quite content to join in... ...with my little scheme of marchin' up and down the square? Sarge? Yes, Wyclif, what is it? Well, I'm learning the piano. Learning the piano? Yes, Sarge. And I suppose you want to go practice? Marchin' up and down the square not good enough for you? Well- Right! Off you go! Now, what about the rest of you?
