Yes, they are getting ready for another war. Why shouldn't they? It pays high dividends. Oh you think I am talking about current affairs? Actually these words are by General Smedley Butler in 1935 from a little book called War is a Racket. If you haven’t read this gem now is the time.
It’s very true, something that’s really been striking me lately as a former anti-establishment leftist (that is, before I realized that an “anti-establishment leftist” is a contradiction in terms) is that there is this massive, monolithic military-medical-corporate industrial complex that so clearly wants to control the world with technology, and the left brilliantly makes speaking out about it a highly partisan issue. I truly believe that the vast majority of people with moral convictions about checking power, business, and military expansion would be outraged about the functions of globalism -- and back in my day, hippie leftists abhorred globalism!
