We encourage the MIC because it keeps our civilization alive and American. If we disband it, the Chinese will use their MIC to force changes to our society and government while the Russians lead a global campaign to take down our allies And usurp liberty with their own coalition. When civilizations clash, as is happening now for over a decade, it is preferable to hope ours comes out victoriously.
And if the average citizen can make a little profit on the side with increased share prices and dividend payouts, well that just a bonus.
