Fifty years ago, President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned United States citizens against the military industrial complex but it seems that warning was not taken to heart. Author Russ Baker says fifty years later, it is much worse than what Eisenhower warned against, it keeps us in a state of low grade panic all the time.

good things....

,,,,do happen

Russ did a great job

The book is a must read.

the mirror.

what are the possibles here?

An entrenched secretive violent order of control, involving hundreds of thousands of psychologically flawed affiliates witting and unwitting[many who like uniforms], probably hundreds of years in the making but identifiably decades long of deep state infiltration creating networks essentially underground and global, but maintaining plausible deniability at shop-front through PR owning concepts [definitions] of 'freedom' and 'democracy', 'History' and education, projecting 'civilized world' moralities through revolving door media control; owners of the money [debt-slave politics], the passports, the guns the aircraft the boats, the drugs,the grain shops, and seeds, interconnected with high international criminal gangs, demolition experts and university grads. into R&D weapons systems because the pay is so good,

ALL maintaining POWER by aggressive "no-conscience" militarist/intelligence/business-financial terrorist means[blackmail,murder,suicide,threat,disappearance, invasion, torture etc]

hmmmm. How to bust that one down and replace it with
[a] anything at all
[a.1] no interest money green/humanist/sharing more trusting and casual society of people who care for one another. feed one another. Where the struggle is to maintain the magic of being. Where 'work' would mean finding equilibrium within seriously threatened ecosystems, stabilization of food supplies where everybody gets to holiday, general health and welfare where children actually get looked after by seriously intelligent adults....Where basic greed is identified as a mental health issue and properly addressed B4 it gets to the gun shop? Where major companies would HAVE to disclose compound formula before spraying the oceans of the world with their 'retardants' . etcetera. etcetera.
[b] find something new for readers to offer apart from stating the bleedin obvious [David and Goliath] over and over again
[c] Thank Russ Baker for an excellent book that leaves us wondering at a society based on secret societies that bow to skulls in dark rooms calling themselves 'civilized'.

some countries have some of the good stuff you mention

eg cuba- such an amazing health care system
mentoring on weekends- city professionals go to the countryside to educate the less fortunate
they dont have empire but they have values
brasil revived henry ford's dream that cars could be powered without the involvement of oil barons
(rockefeller co sponsored prohibition to stop that in the states)

unfortunately from
the ludlow massacre
to
fuel + IBM technology for hitler
to
getting bush I all the second chances he needed to succeed in office and advance fanatical nationalist agendas which increases the wealth of the elites of an empire ...
the elite have been funding the way , paving the way all the way to 9/11

Great book

Russ's book has proof of what he contends - the best way to put forth material.
