Although I believe your statement is completely valid, I must draw attention to the fact that military spending is only for the purpose of advancing
society. Sure, defense is a necessity, but in a capitalistic economy, even the defense department is expect to produce some sort of capitalistic
result. The emergence of new technology and trained personnel are the main products that come out of the military.
Just because antigravity has dangerous prospects without any knowledge of what it would actually be like to see flying highways, the fact remains
that fear should not deter one from progress. I do not have a solution in mind to the problem of someone ramming into a building with a small
antigravity vehicles, but I'm sure that someone out there might have a good answer. I still believe information about antigravity should come out to
further the progress of society. In an economy, religion, or society, stagnation will be the final blow... and this same rule will go for the US if
it does not continue to develop cutting edge technology and products to peak the interests of consumers.
My assumption is that the revenue generated by the emerging technology would have more than enough left over to create new forms of security,
including repellant devices to reduce collisions with buildings or other flying vehicles.
