"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. The world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron."
President Dwight Eisenhower - From a speech before the American Society of Newspaper Editors, April 16, 1953

This speech was delivered months before I was born. And, despite these words, the world has spun into a military economy of apocalyptic proportions, for the entire span of my life. Wars. conflicts. police actions, peacekeeping missions - it's all war.

It's all profit for companies that make money from war.
