Empire then and now: If “history repeats itself” this time, there will be no more next time.

During my high school years, in the late ’50s, my boyfriend’s father, a man for whom I had immense respect, warned that the United States was on a trajectory to suffer the same fate as that of Rome. I remembering wondering about his remark, which he repeated more than once and was based on his reading of historical accounts. I was a willing listener, since my particular PTSD (and who of us does not suffer from PTSD??) was tied to my terror of nuclear war, a recurring nightmare that began as a two-year-old, when I heard the radio announcement that our “great nation” had bombed Hiroshima to smithereens.

During those same teenage years, I had convinced both my father and his father to make bomb shelters. Ours was state of the art, engineered into one basement room; theirs was more like a potato cellar hole in the ground.

I was totally sure that none of us would ever live to see the year 1960, the year we graduated. In fact, I told my father that there would be no point in applying for college, since we’d all be dead by the end of the year. He made me apply.

Then, when we not only all lived through that year, but John F. Kennedy was elected President, I was so stunned by the good news that I found it very difficult to absorb. And yes, for the next three years, we did appear to have entered a new Camelot world. 

Until November 22, 1963, when I was four months pregnant with my first child. At that point I began to read books like The Power Elite, a ’50s classic on how power works in America. And woke up  to the goodie goodie, world savior mask that America had worn to disguise its real aims.

I’ve not fallen asleep since. In order to survive and thrive, I’ve made it a point to sink below the chimera of egomaniacal geopolitical power plays and ask: how does nature work? And how can we learn from her? What IS natural, spontaneous, and not just contrived, slanted, spun in a particular direction to serve a selfish agenda?

Of course the word “natural” got co-opted, almost immediately, by market forces that use that word as spin. We went through “organic” (still meaningful as a set of regulations that certify foods as such), and then, in the last ten years or so, “sustainable.” Until that word was taken over by the UN Agenda 21 and paired with another word “development,” to create an oxymoron, when we realize that “development” (with its extraction of natural resources) MUST be limited on a finite planet. So now we’re on to the next new word, “resilient,” with “regenerative” coming up close behind. 

It may be that the main problem with humans is that we have substituted language for the telepathic communion that all of nature (and apparently, most ETs) enjoy. Only if we can pretend one thing and mean another can we actually lie. If we are transparent, lies are not possible. So I’m all for us recovering our capacity for telepathy, something that every mother knows with her children, at least up to some point in their young lives.

But back to the subject matter at hand, the use and abuse of power by the U.S.Empire. And Dick High Sr., my then boyfriend’s father and future father-in-law (for a time) was, I suspect, right. The U.S. IS following the trajectory of ancient Rome, and it’s good to be aware of that. Here’s a piece from Fred Burks, of wanttoknow.info, that came in on my email feed this morning:

The Mightiest Empire

Arthur Hoppe

Once upon a time there was a country that was very small and, on the whole, very good.

Its citizens were proud and independent and self-reliant and generally prosperous. They believed in freedom and justice and equality. But, above all, they had faith. They had faith in their religion, their leaders, their country and themselves.

And, of course, they were ambitious. Being proud of their country, they wanted to make it bigger. First they conquered the savage tribes that hemmed them in. Then they fought innumerable wars on land and sea with foreign powers to the east and west and south. They won almost all the battles they fought and conquered foreign lands.

It took many generations, but at last the good, little country was the richest, mightiest nation in the whole, wide world — admired, respected, envied and feared by one and all.

“We must remain the mightiest nation,” said its leaders, “so that we can insure universal peace and make everyone as prosperous and decent and civilized as we are.”

At first, the mightiest nation was as good as its word. It constructed highways and buildings and pipelines and hygienic facilities all over the world. And for awhile, it even kept the peace.

But being the mightiest nation in the world, its leader was the mightiest man in the world. And, naturally, he acted like it.

He surrounded himself with a palace guard of men chosen solely for their personal loyalty. He usurped the powers of the Senate, signing treaties, waging wars and spending public funds as he saw fit.

When little countries far away rebelled, he sent troops without so much as a by-your-leave. And the mightiest nation became engaged in a series of long, costly, inconclusive campaigns in far away lands. So some disillusioned soldiers refused to obey orders and some sailors mutinied, even though the leader raised their pay. And in some places the mightiest nation hired mercenaries to do its fighting.

And because it was the richest nation, it worshiped wealth and the things wealth bought. But the rich grew richer and the poor grew poorer through unfair tax laws. And in the capital 1 in 5 were idle and on welfare.

When the poor grumbled, they were entertained by highly paid athletes and the firing of expensive rockets into the air which sometimes fizzled. But the poor often rioted and looted and burned in their frustrated rage.

Many citizens lost faith in their old religion and turned to Oriental mysticism. And the young, wearing long hair and sandals, became Jesus freaks. Bare-breasted dancers, lewd shows and sex orgies were increasingly common. And the currency was debased again and again to meet the mounting debts.

Worst of all, the citizens came to learn their leaders were corrupt — that the respected palace guard was selling favors to the rich and sending spies among the people, creating fear and distrust.

So it was that the people lost faith. They lost faith in their leaders, their currency, their rockets, their postal system, their armies, their religion, their laws, their moral values, their country and, eventually, themselves.

And, thus, in 476 A.D., Rome fell to the barbarians and the Dark Ages settled over Western civilization.

Moral: For what is a nation profited if it shall gain the whole world and lose its own soul.

Trey Gowdy penetrates to the heart of the corruption in politics

This video is going viral. As should be.

And here’s one way of contextualizing what Trey Gowdy is driving at:

An Investigative Pattern Emerges

I came across the above “pattern” piece in my daily news from aim4truth.org, an amazing site that I have recently learned to pay attention to.

Meanwhile, the astonishing Trey Gowdy is, BTW, an archetypal example of what someone born during the years 1962-1968, the Uranus/Pluto in Virgo generation, can accomplish. Though we don’t have his birthtime, two positions from his birthdate, August 22, 1964, stand out: 1) His Sun is at the 29° Leo position (exactly on Trump’s Ascendant), and so “born to rule,” due to its conjunction with the royal star Regulus. And 2) His Mercury, the mind, conjoins the Uranus/Pluto conjunction. And frankly, I have never seen such a dazzling display of this generation’s usually unconscious capacity for penetrating (Pluto), breakthrough (Uranus) analytic (Virgo) fireworks made utterly, and fearlessly conscious. The man is extraordinary. Let’s hope he stays in politics, and let’s ask that he be protected from harm.

Saturn to enter Capricorn on December 19, 2017 — slow down! Serious business ahead!

Saturn moves through one sign in about two and a half years. This will be its first transit through Capricorn since 1988-1990. If you recall, those are the years that surrounded the fall of the Berlin wall, on November 9, 1989. One of the keywords for Saturn is “wall.” Plus, that wall was up for 30 years, one Saturn cycle!

Back then, not only Saturn, but electric Uranus and oceanic Neptune were also transiting through Capricorn, moving in and out of conjunction during part of that time, and not leaving until 1995.

The millennial generation, born during those years, is tasked, on an unconscious level, with dissolving (Neptune), breaking down (Uranus) and reconfiguring (Saturn) forms — of both our own bodies and the institutions of society. For Capricorn is a sign that rules form, structure, rules, roles, regulations. It sets the philosophies and ideologies of Sagittarius (where Saturn transits just prior to Capricorn) in place, gathering, holding, and stabilizing energetic flows through its forms and channels.

This time around, since early 2015 during which Saturn has been moving through Sagittarius, has triggered intense debate on what kinds of ideas and ideals we should use to reform or transform society. The debate has been heated (Sagittarius is a fiery, sometimes preachy sign) and often dogmatic (Sagittarius, when unevolved, resorts to dogma, the illusion of certainty).

Meanwhile, since early 2008, the year that the banksters almost crashed the capitalist economy, Pluto has been moving through Capricorn, where Saturn is headed now. From that year on, with (unpredictable) Uranus in Aries squaring (deep, primal, birth and death) Pluto, humanity has surrendered to an enormous array of discordant, disruptive, polarized energies, most of which can be classified as “individual vs. society,” or “freedom vs. enslavement,” or, simply, “me vs us.”

How DO we maintain our own individuality and autonomy while also connecting on a deep level with what is best for the whole? How do we appreciate both, simultaneously? The dynamic between them, with one ever seeking (and failing) to crush the other, is ongoing, and will ultimately erode whatever remains of current structures of civilization during the years when transit Pluto moves back and forth across natal Pluto in the U.S. chart. Natal U.S. Pluto sits at 26°33 Capricorn. Transit Pluto is now only eight degrees away, moving through at 18° Capricorn. Even now, transit Pluto begins to foreshadow the enormous transformational changes required when a planet makes its first return to its natal place since that entity’s birth.

For yes, this is the very first time in its short history that the U.S. will be fully absorbing the long-cycled observance of Pluto, the first time that this young, adolescent nation will have to begin to recognize the right use and misuse of power. Compared to other, older nations, the U.S. nation, with its imperious imperial reach, has been acting like a two-year-old, yelling “me me me!” over and over again, selfish, myopic, and driven by tantrums.

We can feel the changes. They are epic. Already no longer is the U.S. Empire getting its hegemonic way across the globe. And it hurts.

Meanwhile, here comes Saturn, about to enter that same sign of Capricorn, and in Saturn’s case, Capricorn is the sign it actually rules. In other words, the meaning of planet Saturn (teaching lessons from hard experience) and the meaning of the sign (rules, roles, regulations, form, structure) agree with each other. That makes this coming transit stronger than usual. We will be forced to pragmatically rebuild structures through hard lessons about what works and what does not. Not just our visions and ideals count. The breezy Sagittarian insistance on its beliefs as best gets grounded into material reality with Capricorn — or not!

Saturn itself, entering 0° Capricorn only two days before Winter Solstice 2017, when the Sun reaches 0° Capricorn, and joining the sun in being only three degrees from the 27° Galactic Center during this deep winter turning time, lends a definite Capricorn aura to this particular Winter Solstice. Serious business lies ahead folks, and we can’t escape it. We will be forced to slow down. To pay attention to practical matters. To focus and plan ahead while knowing that all plans are liable to crumble in the light of what’s coming next.

And it’s better to tune into the coming unpleasantness (for that IS how we think of actually working with the physical world rather than just thinking about it), rather than just trying to ignore it. In any case,  avoidance will be short-lived. We will be forced, slammed, into paying attention to actual material reality.

Transit Saturn will move through Capricorn starting December 19, 2017, and reach the natal U.S. Pluto during the years 2019-2020.

Transit Pluto will reach the natal U.S. Pluto from those same years throughout the first half of the 2020s, until 2025.

If we think we’ve seen big changes so far, think again. And get ready to surf massive material reconfigurations on Planet Earth.

And we haven’t even mentioned Uranus, due to leave fiery Aries for earthy Taurus in May 2018, where it will remain until the end of 2025.

Two earth signs, Capricorn and Taurus, are about to be occupied by two long-range outer planets, Pluto (now buttressed by Saturn) and Uranus, signalling a massive unconscious shift, not only in the cultural atmosphere but in our hearts and souls. We have been living in our minds, going faster and faster, obsessed with virtuality and triviality. In doing so, we have been either treating our living bodies, and our living mother earth as A.I. machines, or ignoring them outright — for far too long.

Thus this shift comes as a needed correction.

Plus, notice: natal U.S. Pluto at 27°33 Capricorn sits in a close opposition to natal U.S. Mercury at 24°12 Cancer. We are already feeling the effects of transit Pluto nearing this opposition, with the obliteration of mass mind control (Pluto) as promulgated by the MSM media (Mercury)

Rappoport documents the death of Fake News

Over 40 years ago, in my doctoral dissertation in philosophy, I claimed that “the line between fiction and fact is very thin.” I might as well have called this statement prophecy, because that is what it was — at the time. Back then, this culture (programmed by positivistic science) considered facts as facts, small hard bullets of info that we actually relied on. Stood upon. They anchored us into “reality.”

Soon, I started to call them “factoids,” instead. Meaning: they were radioactive, with half-lives. I.e., just because one might be “true” at one point, didn’t mean it would stay “true.”

Decades later, I noticed that CNN had picked up my word, and used it for a brief time, until that network, along with all the others, started to grind into dust thanks both the phenomenon of the internet and the rise of independent citizen journalists, plus, now, the Trump Effect.

Jon Rappoport, who has been identifying, naming, analyzing and countering “fake news” for 16 years, has two recent pieces that help give context to the lack of context we have unconsciously allowed to program our minds, ever since at least the ’50s, when tell-a-vision took over. First and most obvious of course, is the Trump Effect.

The evening news and the gunslinger called Trump

Aside from the Trump Effect, Rappoport notices other telling signs of MSM demise. He considers what has followed once the Archetypal Big Daddy Anchors on evening news started to disappear, leaving second or third rate substitutes, with no “authority,”  in their place.

The Collapse of Major Media

Excerpt:

What happened?

Many things—among them, the father figures left the fold. They decided to sell real estate or take corporate work in PR. They saw the handwriting on the wall: the networks were fostering a youth movement, seeking younger and prettier talent. Why? Because Madison Avenue was convinced the younger viewer demographic was the important one, in terms of consumer buying power. Therefore, on-air news faces had to be younger as well. This sounded right, but it overlooked one vital fact. The young news anchors couldn’t pull off the appropriate level of mind control. They were merely bland robots. Friendly, nice, literate to the point of being able read copy. (Lester Holt at NBC is a bit older, but he comes across as a corpse someone dug up at a cemetery for a role in a Frankenstein remake.)

There is another gross miscalculation. The commercials, between news segments, are overwhelmingly pharmaceutical. Those drugs aren’t intended for the youth demographic. They’re for the middle-aged and the seniors, who want to toxify themselves for the rest of their lives.

So the commercials are playing to the older crowd, while the faces of the news are supposedly attracting younger viewers. It’s a mess. The news execs and programmers really have no idea what they’re doing.

They’re basically hoping their game somehow lasts until they can retire.

Ultimately, it appears that the Trump Effect is merely the final blow to an already moribund mind-controlling structure.

I especially appreciate Rappoport’s point of view because not only has he been studying the mass psychology behind the “news” phenomenon for many years, how te-lie-vision has programmed the human mind, he’s also articulate and often bitingly funny. YES!

More on Massive Military Madness

 

Young people who decide to join the military as a “way to serve my country” are both foolish and naive, according to one who did.

“You Grow Up Wanting To Be Luke Skywalker Then Realize You’ve Become A StormTrooper For the Empire”

Meanwhile, where are you “stationed” as a soldier? Who knows? you could be anywhere, given the spread of Empire to just about every country in the world.

Report: 44,000 unknown military personnel stationed around the world

And the worse part of it? Private/military contracts that bring total numbers of those who “serve” the spread of Empire to astronomical proportions. See this excerpt from above article:

The United States maintains 23,659 contractors in Afghanistan and 4,609 in Iraq, according to a fourth-quarter 2017 report from the Defense Department. Many of them are local residents and foreign nationals hired to provide basic services at U.S. bases, but they also include many skilled workers, pilots, technicians and private security forces, according to the report.

The percentage of Defense Department personnel deployed to combat zones is small by Post-9/11 standards of hundreds of thousands of troops in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere. But smaller numbers of “train-and-equip” specialists such as Special Forces and contractors are becoming ubiquitous in many countries in Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia, according to the data center report.

I wonder if this kind of “accounting” is related to the just announced first ever audit of the DOD in 2018.

Forbes Magazine: 21 Trillion Missing from U.S. Treasury

This morning, I open emails to see what’s posted below. All of which makes me realize, again, that we need to learn how to live, as much as possible, below money. Let us recognize “money” as an artificial, scarcity-promoting, hierarchical scrim humanity has created to smother Nature’s abundance, her dynamically interwoven web of life. 

Missing Trillions

Forbes magazine just yesterday became the first major media to blow the lid off of $21 trillion that have gone missing from the US treasury. The entire article is copied below. To give an idea of how much money that is, if you divide the entire US population of around 325 million into $21 trillion, the amount missing is equivalent to $65,000 for every man, woman, and child in the country.

CBS News in 2002 was the first to report on the much smaller amount of $2.3 trillion missing from the Pentagon, as acknowledged by then Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld in a report on the Dept. of Defense website. Rumsfeld’s report was later strangely removed from the website, but is still available on the Internet archive.

No other media picked up on this mind-blowing story. What should have been a top headline-grabbing story of highest concern to all Americans was simply dropped. Since then, a few major media have published isolated articles on missing trillions, as summarized on this revealing webpage, yet again, these stories were not given the top headlines they deserved. They thus attracted little notice and were dropped, so the public remained uniformed of this concerning news.

A courageous former Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban Development under George H. W. Bush by the name of Catherine Austin Fitts couldn’t believe this vitally important story was being largely ignored by the media. An incredibly sharp economist who once served as managing director of the Wall Street investment bank Dillon, Read & Co, Fitts researched further and has been reporting regularly on the many trillions missing on her highly informative and inspiring website solari.com. The media has conspicuously avoided her detailed work on this.

Michigan State professor of economics Mark Skidmore discovered the excellent work of Fitts several years ago. He couldn’t believe Fitts claim that $6.5 trillion were missing from the US government. Thinking she had mistakenly written trillions instead of billions, he and his graduate students sifted through thousands of US government reports and were astounded to find not only that Fitts was right, but that the amount was even greater that Fitts had thought.

Skidmore eventually worked together with Forbes magazine contributor Prof. Laurence Kotlikoff of Boston University to compose the below article blowing the lid off this huge cover-up of $21 trillion gone missing from government coffers. Note that once certain officials saw Skidmore exposing this, the government removed many of the incriminating documents from their websites. But he wisely had downloaded all of the documents and has reposted this incriminating information on the website of Fitts on this webpage.

You can help to inform the public of this huge cover-up by spreading this news to all of your friends and colleagues. It’s time for us to join in demanding full transparency on how our tax dollars are used and to expose the major corruption taking place. See the “What you can do” section below the article for more ways you can make a difference. Thanks for caring. Together, we can build a brighter future for us and our children.

With best wishes for a transformed world,

Has Our Government Spent $21 Trillion Of Our Money Without Telling Us?
By Laurence Kotlikoff
Forbes magazine, Dec 8, 2017

I am co-authoring this column with Mark Skidmore, a Professor of Economics at Michigan State University.

“No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law; and a regular Statement and Account of the Receipts and Expenditures of all public Money shall be published from time to time.” ~ Article I, Section 9, Clause 7, The US Constitution

On July 26, 2016, the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) issued a report “Army General Fund Adjustments Not Adequately Documented or Supported”. The report indicates that for fiscal year 2015 the Army failed to provide adequate support for $6.5 trillion in journal voucher adjustments.

According to the GAO’s Comptroller General, “Journal vouchers are summary-level accounting adjustments made when balances between systems cannot be reconciled. Often these journal vouchers are unsupported, meaning they lack supporting documentation to justify the adjustment or are not tied to specific accounting transactions…. For an auditor, journal vouchers are a red flag for transactions not being captured, reported, or summarized correctly.”

(Note, after Mark Skidmore began inquiring about OIG-reported unsubstantiated adjustments, the OIG’s webpage, which documented, albeit in a highly incomplete manner, these unsupported “accounting adjustments,” was mysteriously taken down. Fortunately, Mark copied the July 2016 report and all other relevant OIG-reports in advance and reposted them here. Mark has repeatedly tried to contact Lorin Venable, Assistant Inspector General at the Office of the Inspector General. He has emailed, phoned, and used LinkedIn to ask Ms. Venable about OIG’s disclosure of unsubstantiated adjustments, but she has not responded.)

Given that the entire Army budget in fiscal year 2015 was $120 billion, unsupported adjustments were 54 times the level of spending authorized by Congress. The July 2016 report indicates that unsupported adjustments are the result of the Defense Department’s “failure to correct system deficiencies.” The result, according to the report, is that data used to prepare the year-end financial statements were unreliable and lacked an adequate audit trail.

The report indicates that just 170 transactions accounted for $2.1 trillion in year-end unsupported adjustments. No information is given about these 170 transactions. In addition many thousands of transactions with unsubstantiated adjustments were, according to the report, removed by the Army. There is no explanation concerning why they were removed nor their magnitude.

The July 2016 report states, “In addition, DFAS (Defense Finance and Accounting Service) Indianapolis personnel did not document or support why DDRS (The Defense Department Reporting System) removed at least 16,513 of 1.3 million feeder file records during the Third Quarter.”

An appendix to the July 2016 report shows $2 trillion in changes to the Army General Fund balance sheet due to unsupported adjustments. On the asset side, there is $794 billion increase in the Army’s Fund Balance with the U.S. Treasury. There is also an increase of $929 billion in the Army’s Accounts Payable.

This information raises additional major questions. First, what is the source of the additional $794 billion in the Army’s Fund Balance? This adjustment represents more than six times appropriated spending. Second, do these transfers represent a flow of funds to the Army beyond those authorized by Congress? Third, were these funds authorized and if so when and by whom? Fourth, what is the source of these funds? Finally, the $929 billion in Accounts Payable appears to represent an amount owed for items or services purchased on credit. What entities have received or will receive payment?

Note: The above article is copied from the Forbes magazine website on this webpage. Watch Prof. Skidmore discussing this astounding news in this interview.

ET and us: Oops! We’re losing our fear; the programming is breaking down

Along with pedophilia (plus child murder, blood sucking, and organ trafficking), there’s another elephant in the global room, one which is also becoming more and more visible, over especially the past year or so. I’m sure these long slow “soft disclosure” roll-outs of what was previously hidden and forbidden are intentional. What I’m less sure of is whether or not we the people will be able, through our growing awareness of predictive programming, to stop/avoid/make fun of, the cabal’s plans for a false flag “ET?UFO invasion” as the last card in their desperate, furious overreach to lock us all up into their centralized, police state New World Order.

Meanwhile, despite scores of scary movies rolled out over the decades, we don’t seem all that scared! Is their programming failing? Are we becoming immune to fear-porn?

Just in the past two days, these two reports, one of them MSM (Reuters):

Are earthlings alone? Half of humans believe in alien life

and

Americans will welcome ET visitation, says psychologist

Meanwhile, here’s one young woman who’s not only not scared, she’s imaginative and highly creative, leading us on a wondrous tour of her many-layered investigation into what may lie behind and within the notion of The Bull’s Eye.

Elephant in the Global Room becomes Glaringly Obvious: PEDOGATE

Image result for ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM

Anyone who has on his or her thinking cap knows that if there is one common concern that will make everyone wake up and take notice, it’s the care of our children. Which, of course, is why the pedophile (and worse, even worse) horror has been a big open secret for so long. We can’t afford to notice. Because if we do, we will either be forced to take action or to ignore our own core values.

Steve Beckow has recently broached the subject, and does so as delicately as possible, knowing just how sensitive humans are to this subject, while producing a decent overview.

Telling the Cabal to Stop, Part I

Here’s one among many examples of someone who survived the abuse, and has lived to tell the tale.

My name is Anneke Lucas, and I was a Sex Slave to Europe’e Elite at Age Six

And don’t think it’s just Europe. In the U.S. it seems to be concentrated  especially in the halls of government and entertainment. By which I mean Washington D.C.

Former Congresswoman: If Trump Goes After High Level Pedophiles, It Will Take Down Dems and Republicans

and Hollywood.

Mel Gibson: Hollywood Is ‘Den of Parasites’ Who ‘Feast on Blood of Kids’ 

Plus, in all sorts of small and large towns all over this land. Remember the Franklin Scandal? That was North Dakota. Remember all the pedophile priests? That was first uncovered in Boston, and made into a film, Spotlight. The sports coaches? Jerry Sandusky? Note that his adopted son has just now been convicted on the same kind of charges. Oh yes, and there’s the Seattle Mayor, one of at least eleven mayors in the past year or so to be convicted on child sex charges.

And now, possibly:

Pentagon to employ an army of 2400 independent auditors in 2018. Finally!

 

This is truly exciting news. Thanks to Jordan Sather for the tip.

Pentagon starting first ever financial audit

This glaring omission has long been noted. For example:

The Pentagon Has Never Been Audited. That’s Astonishing.

Meanwhile, Trump has asked for a $52 billion budget increase for 2018! (Hmmm. As usual, I’d like to give him the benefit of my doubt. So: is that what the audit will cost?)

I remember as a kid, transfixed by the stupid human propensity to continuously design, build, and test more and more destructive weapons for killing each other off, asking my Dad: WHY? His answer puzzled me. I now realize it was a stock answer, fed to him by the mind control programming of the 1950s: military spending eventually turns into civilian applications. So we should support military spending. What? That never did make sense.

And then of course, there’s the horrible comprehension that the entire economy is and has long been threaded through with continuous, decades-long, militarization. That the U.S. is, indeed, a WAR ECONOMY. From alphabet agencies, to national and state budgets, to aerospace and weapons manufacturers, to big tech and IT corporations, to construction companies, to violent video games and films, to university grants for defense applications, on and on, literally most aspects of this increasingly insane culture are in some way tied to continuous expansion of military spending. Meanwhile, public infrastructure rots, innocent children are neglected, abused, trafficked and murdered, politicians are blackmailed or bribed, opioid and other forms of addiction drag entire families and communities into hell, prisons burst at the seams, small businesses close down. On and on. And all for what?

Here’s what Ron Paul has to say about military spending and its effects on the economy:

Big Military Spending Boost Threatens Our Economy and Security
