Subject: RE: BS: Militarism & the US culture of violence
Militarism is just yet one more control mechanism by the Ruling Class. And it's win/win for them in that they also use it to destribute wealth in their favor... Hey, it's their world and they're gonna do what they gotta do to kerp it that way, even if it means tunring militarism and nationalism loose on the working working class. It's quit a tight-rope that Boss Hog walks knowing that if the working class evr gets wind of the game that is bring played upon them, then Boss Hog's got some big troubles on his hands...

Jusat another thought. One of the first threads I ever started here was on the concept of a Department of Peace and though I found myself very much in the minority of its value, there seemed to be a few folks who thought it impractical because it didn't have the same profit potential as war.
