To implement these tactics we would need public support and slowly introduce the method into an area with high percentage of allegations against officers to have a good comparison and determine whether our method would be succefful. This process would not show immediate results because there is not short-term solution for this long-term problem. To get public support we would need to showcase how therapy and counseling can improve the mental wellbeing and stress reduction. We can use the military as an example, on how soldiers are treated for stress and ptsd with counseling and therapy to help them reassimilate into functioning members of society.

I will apply Stoic view, specifically to the lives of soldiers and how they are supposed to conduct themselves. Through this, I will show the practicability and impracticality that of Stoicism in the lives of combatants. I will make an argument that Stoicism in military life can have damaging effects on combatants and a more moderate approach needs to be taken to ensure the health of combatants. The first page of Epictetus’s handbook says, “Some things are up to us and some are not up to us.
