"Spending on Militarism takes up the majority of the US federal discretionary Budget and it has grown faster than all other spending. If we keep up these patterns, we are hurtling toward a future where we can't afford the basics of a civilized society"!

"We keep hearing that our government can't afford nice things — or necessary things — for everyone," said the paper's co-author. "Yet militarized spending in the U.S. has almost doubled over the past two decades."


"Can the U.S. Adjust Sensibly to a Multipolar World?" by Medea Benjamin & Nicolas J. S. Davies:

WHICH STARTS WITH THIS: "In his 1987 book The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers, historian Paul Kennedy reassured Americans, that the decline the United States was then facing ... after a century of international dominance, was “relative and not absolute, and is therefore perfectly natural; and that the only serious threat to the real interests of the United States - can come from a failure to adjust sensibly to the newer world order.”

"Since Kennedy wrote those words ... we have seen the end of The Cold War, the peaceful emergence of China as a leading world power and the rise of a formidable Global South. But the United States has indeed failed to “adjust sensibly to the newer world order” .. using military force and coercion in flagrant violation of the UN Charter in a failed quest for longer lasting global hegemony.

"Paul Kennedy observed that military power follows economic power. Rising economic powers develop military power to consolidate and protect their expanding economic interests. But once a great power’s economic prowess is waning - the use of military force to try to prolong its day in the sun, leads only to unwinnable conflicts, as European colonial powers quickly learned after the Second World War, and as Americans are learning today.

AND ENDS WITH ... "Now that the “newer world order” that Paul Kennedy referred to is taking shape, economist Jeffrey Sachs has grave misgivings about the U.S. ability to adjust. As he recently warned, “Unless U.S. foreign policy is changed to recognize the need for a multipolar world, it will lead to more wars and possibly ... to World War III.” With countries across the globe building new networks of trade, development and diplomacy, independent of Washington and Wall Street - the United States may well have no choice but to finally “adjust sensibly” to the new order."

NB that "The Military-Industrial Complex (MIC) that President Dwight D.Eisenhower warned Americans about more than 60 years ago is still alive and well. In fact it’s now consuming many more tax dollars & feeding far larger weapons producers than when Ike raised the alarm about the “unwarranted influence” it wielded in his 1961 farewell address to the nation.

"The statistics are stunning. This year’s proposed budget for the Pentagon and Nuclear Weapons Work at the Department of Energy is $886 billion — more than twice as much, adjusted for inflation, as at the time of Eisenhower’s speech. The Pentagon ... now consumes, more than half the federal discretionary budget & so leaving priorities like public health, environmental protection, job training, and education to compete for what remains. In 2020, Lockheed Martin received $75+ billion in Pentagon contracts, more than the entire budget of the State Department & the Agency for International Development - combined.

"This year’s spending just for that company’s overpriced, underperforming F-35 combat aircraft - equals the full budget of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and as a new report from the National Priorities Project at the Institute for Policy Studies revealed recently -- that the average taxpayer spends $1,087 per year on weapons contractors compared to $270 for K-12 education and just $6 for renewable energy"! - FROM:

Advisory: Florida unsafe for black Americans


"Under the leadership of Governor DeSantis, the state of Florida has become hostile to Black Americans and in direct conflict with the democratic ideals that our union was founded upon," NAACP President & CEO Derrick Johnson said. "He should know that democracy will prevail because its defenders are prepared to stand up and fight. We're not backing down, and we encourage our allies to join us in the battle for the soul of our nation."

This is not a high point in our history.

Thread: Yay Biden

"Inequality is reaching feudal proportions, where very few own almost everything .. & everyone else is crushed under the wheel of engineered destitution"! - FROM:

"Biden is already discovering that there is not enough in the coffer to afford the kind of stimulus needed to simply feed people,to keep them housed, to help small businesses stay alive, to help schools reopen. But watch,he will find plenty of money for weapons makers, for the Federal Reserve to buy the garbage debt of over-leveraged corporations, money for hospital chains and pharmaceutical companies, and for banks and for all the members of the Neo-Feudal Aristocracy that he helped build and who are our new masters.

So - "The economy is working exactly as it is intended to work, the way it has been designed to work, to benefit the wealthy and to crush everybody else. The problem for The Mass of the rest of us - is that we didn't get the memo"!

So don't whine like a "fkn half-wit", there's plenty of info here to read, tho' RWNJs don't do so good with actual information do they?! Especially, IF idiots think that this Still Extant OWS forum is 'Pro-Biden' lol!!
