To spark this off I'll indicate the following. Right now the United States is conducting nine different wars. To my knowledge, none (?) have been legitimized by Congress. The media is clamouring in hostility responding to Trumps 'pulling out' of Syria.
Yet, in contradiction to the actions in Syria, Trump is 'rebuilding the military,' in his own words, claiming it as one of the administrations major accomplishments. The pentagon industry, increasing by the same proportion that it did under Obama, has catapulted its own funding to 1.3 trillion dollars per annum (2017).
At this point, it is really impossible to tell what industries in the American nation do not have their profits driven by the pentagon system. In fact Amazon - and this caught me by surprise--is one of the largest defense contractors in the United States.
My question to you is, when does the jingoism and truckulance of the military industrial complex, the pentagon system, the gigantic surveillance apperatus become 'too much' for voat? I ask because I know many of you here appear to be pro military.
At what limit is it appropriate to cease to back slap and congratulate a president who spends such unfathomable amounts of money on the extension and continuous building of the corporate/state subsidized military?
What are your thoughts on this issue?
I guess a supplementary question is, how can you free market worshippers, justify your dogma in the face of such blatant state driven interference?
