So in short you aren't talking about a race of supersoldiers whose only purpose is really to fight wars for us, you're talking about a race of supersoldiers who are pressured into believing that their only purpose is to fight wars for us, against their actual inner natures that would make them e.g. peaceful artists or musicians instead.

At this point, we're not talking about remotely the same thing, we're talking about completely opposite things -- as opposite as fulfilling your true utility function and being forced to go against it -- as opposite as Fun and Anti-Fun.
