Human beings naturally are concerned with having housing, a job, food on the table, and some prospect of pursuing what makes them happy.
The above statement helps to explain the rather insular views so many hold, and why it is that most activists focus on domestic concerns.
Fortunately ONE voice did stand out by connecting the appropriate dots:
“We must focus resources on investing at home not on wars of regime change. If we continue to spend trillions on interventionist wars won't be able to make progress at home,” said Congress member Tulsi Gabbard."
It's quite true that the MIC realized--from public sentiment against the Vietnam War--that if they HID the war footage, it would just operate as "white noise" and most wouldn't notice it at all. Their strategy has worked rather well...
But War is the primary driver of economic depression--for the 99% and profits for the 1%. It is also a sin against nature and as The Geneva Conventions proclaimed: War of Aggression is the SUPREME crime. From it stem all other calamitous outcomes.
No nation should be investing in wars of aggression and so much in the way of armaments when the world is full of hungry people and misery, and climate chaos is now fully unleashed.
A major tornado impacted a heavily populated city outside of Beijing, China earlier today.
Every week it's another BIG event.
And yet the soldiers are sent on KILL rather than HEAL/FIX/REBUILD missions! And THIS insanity cannibalizes half of the U.S. treasury's annual supply?
