There's no money in American security. American fear is highly profitable.


There's no money in war either. Sure, our massive defense spending goes to American arms dealers and other corporations who aid the war, but this doesn't increase America's wealth. This only circulates wealth that already exists, meanwhile, having nothing to show for it, economically, except wasted resources. So, if anything, war is bad for the economy.

However, it is good for the economy in the long run, through its security value. It is good in the sense that if we didn't spend money on defense, it would cost a lot more if our enemies could invade us. We spend what we have to spend over seas so that the battle doesn't get brought to us and destroy our infrastructure. Security serves to maintain economic stability in the US. I'm completely okay with that. I'd rather fight over there and destroy our enemies land than fight over here and have our enemies destroy ours. Every decision made in war is a calculated decision designed to prevent invasion on our land. Its not about giving money to "evil corporations" at the expense of the American people. Its about maintaining the economy and security of America to protect our way of life from those who wish to dismantle it.


Our foreign policy isn't based on what is good for American security or our economy. America's foreign policy is based on profit.

Every decision made by our country is influenced by money. Nobody making these decisions is concerned with the well-being or wealth of the nation. They're only concerned with their own bank accounts and job security. You're giving the decision-makers in government WAY too much credit.



GOOD CALL.
