I have been an antiwar supporter for many decades and have tried to bring the control of the Military-Industrial Complex over the foreign policy of the US……
If you would like a refresher…..https://lobotero.com/2019/01/28/what-is-the-military-industrial-complex/
The M-IC has made trillions over the last 70 years…..
Though I encounter students and other young people who have never heard the term I hope most Americans are aware of the “Military Industrial Complex.” In his final speech to the nation President Eisenhower, surprisingly since he oversaw much of its formation, warned citizens of the growing danger of the “permanent armaments industry” controlled by those who owned and profited greatly from this new scientific and technological establishment. Many of the giant arms industries, both industrial and high tech, that dominate the corporate landscape today came into existence as the result of war and would long ago have gone out of business in the absence of the guaranteed government profits flowing from the manufactured wars that sustain them today.
Few citizens have ever heard of Charles Wilson of the General Electric Corporation who served as the “czar” of arms production during World War II. In 1944 as victory loomed the nation awaited the return of 16 million veterans. Would unemployment and bread lines await them again? “What we need,” said Wilson, is a “permanent war economy,” neglecting to add that such a scheme would also require permanent enemies.
Too many people do not realize how much power the M-IC has over the process of government….and we were warned by Ike but it was NOT heeded…..
But if my reader is still in the dark about the M-IC then please watch this short video and learn…..
WE all should be aware of this because of the siphon it has on taxpayer money….money that YOU pay for every pay check.
