End the warfare state

In his warning to fellow Americans regarding the parasitic nature of the war-mongering military-industrial complex, General Dwight Eisenhower once famously stated: “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 not clothed.” As wars across the planet increase in lockstep with economic hardships on the home front, awareness of that hard truth will come to be more and more appreciated, and soon. Hopefully, he will prove to be a spur to collective action by the masses in Western nations, marching resolutely, but peacefully to the barricades, determined to end the warfare state.
