This is a great, eye-opening post. It pulls together all the links as to how Washington has, over the past 50 years, perpetuated such a militarized economy based on American insecurity. Even more daunting, it will be almost impossible to turn it around.
Official Washington has, that is, invented a system so dumb, so extreme, so fundamentalist, and so deeply entrenched in our world that changing it will surely prove a stunningly difficult task.
Welcome to the new world of American insecurity and to the nightmarish inheritance we are preparing for our children and grandchildren.
