"The embrace by any society of permanent war is a parasite that devours the heart and soul of a nation.

Permanent war extinguishes liberal movements.

It turns culture into nationalist cant.

It degrades and corrupts education and the media, and wrecks the economy.

The liberal, democratic forces, tasked with maintaining an open society, become impotent." - Chris Hedges

"Why is it we have finite resources for health care but unlimited money for war?

Trillions for war and Wall Street, billions for insurance companies.

When we were promised change, we weren't thinking that we give a dollar and get back two cents." - Dennis Kucinich 11/09

2004 According to the US Defense Energy Support Center Fact Book US military fuel consumption increased to 144 million barrels.

About 40 million barrels more than the prior "peacetime" military usage.

144 million barrels makes 395 000 barrels per day, almost as much as daily energy consumption of Greece.

2006 CIA World Factbook, only 35 countries (out of 210 in the world) consume more oil per day.

2009 US military officially uses ~ 320,000 barrels of oil a day. this excludes contrators.

2011 Pentagon, after a public relations campaign to "go green," spends $17.3 billion on oil, a 26% increase over 2010.

How Military Outsourcing Turned Toxic


Is it realistic to expect nations and tribes to war with one another ?

Is it natural for humans to make war?

New study of tribal societies reveals conflict is an alien concept .

Organised violence between rival political groups is not an inevitable outcome of the human condition.

Those engaged in selling weapons treat human nature as immutable, unchangeable and barbaric which is the case only when under imminent threat of physical annihilation or imminent threat of the annihilation of traditional modes of living.

This ponerological form of reality requires an expression of the will born out of resentment, fear, terror and a need to control or to isolate the 'other'.

Infiltrating the military-industrial-entertainment nexus by creating an ever-expanding database of hyperreal, real-time 3-D simulations.

The promotional video of Viewpoint DataLabs opens with the memorable scene of the alien fighters swarming the F-18's in Independence Day.

It buzz-cuts into a pair of attacking mosquitoes in a Cutter Insect Repellent advertisement, then to spaceships attacking in Star Trek Voyager.

Followed by mega-explosions, a simulation of a missile launch from helicopters, dropping of a fuel-air dispersal bomb from Outbreak, and a trio of Eurofighter 2000s doing maneuvers that are aerodynamically impossible.

"In the realm of diplomatic and strategic theory, this version of reality creates a fluctuation of appearances, at one moment fleeing into the ideal of a "democratic peace" underwritten by an expanding neoliberal global order, and at the next, retreating into a "fortress America" protected by a ballistic missile defense.

Ethical inquiry into the relationship of this form of reality to organized violence begins with an inquiry into rationality of the necessity of, or need for, government sanctioned violence." - James Der Derian, Virtous War

Why America cannot live without wars

"In 2006, the DoD employed 2,143,000 people, while it estimates that private defense contractors employ 3,600,000 workers, for a grand total of 5,743,000 defense-related American jobs. There are close to 25 million veterans in the US. Assuming conservatively only two voting-age people per household, this translates into a block of some 60 million American voters who have a financial stake in the American military establishment. Thus the clear danger of a militarized society perpetuating itself politically. The selling of war-oriented policies requires the expertise that only a well-oiled propaganda machine can provide." - Rodrigue Tremblay

"In the past nine years, non-industrial production in the US has declined by some 19%. It took about four years for manufacturing to return to levels seen before the 2001 recession - and all those gains were wiped out in the current recession. By contrast, military manufacturing is now 123% greater than it was in 2000 - it has more than doubled while the rest of the manufacturing sector has been shrinking. It's important to note the trajectory - the military economy is nearly three times as large, proportionally to the rest of the economy, as it was at the beginning of the Bush administration. And it is the only manufacturing sector showing any growth. Extrapolate that trend, and what do you get?" - Daniel Tencer

Military Keynesianism, as it is now known in academic circles, was first theorised by the Polish economist Michal Kalecki in 1943. Michal Kalecki argued that corporatists and their political champions tended to bridle against classic Keynesianism; achieving full employment through public spending made corporatists nervous because it risked over-empowering the working class and the unions.

The military was a much more desirable investment from the elite corporatists point of view, although justifying such a diversion of public funds required a certain degree of political repression, best achieved through appeals to patriotism and fear-mongering about an enemy threat - and, eventually, an actual war - as unused weapons systems seldom need replacing.

"Theories of Military Keynesianism and the Military-Industrial Complex became popular after the Second World War, and perhaps for a good reason. The prospect of military demobilization, particularly in the US, seemed alarming. The US elite remembered vividly how soaring military spending had pulled the world out of the Great Depression, and it feared that falling military budgets would reverse this process. If that were to happen, the expectation was that business would tumble, unemployment would soar, and the legitimacy of free-market capitalism would again be called into question. Seeking to avert this prospect, in 1950 the National Security Council drafted a top-secret document, NSC-68. The document, which was declassified only in 1977, explicitly called on the government to use higher military spending as a way of preventing such an outcome." - Jonathan Nitzan and Shimshon Bichler





National Security Council Report 68 (NSC-68) drafted under the supervision of Paul Nitze, then head of the Policy Planning Staff in the State Department was dated April 14, 1950 and signed by Harry S Truman on September 30, 1950.

In conclusion NSC-68 asserted: "One of the most significant lessons of our World War II experience was that the American economy, when it operates at a level approaching full efficiency, can provide enormous resources for purposes other than civilian consumption while simultaneously providing a high standard of living".

"Previously administration officials had encountered stiff resistance from Congress to their pleas for a substantial buildup along the lines laid out in NSC-68. The authors of this internal government report took a Manichaean view of America's rivalry with the Soviet Union, espoused a permanent role for the US as world policeman, and envisioned US military expenditures amounting to perhaps 20% of GNP. But congressional acceptance of the recommended measures seemed highly unlikely in the absence of a crisis. In 1950 the fear that [the North Korean] invasion was just the first step in a broad offensive by the Soviets proved highly useful when it came to persuading Congress to increase the defense budget. As Secretary of State Dean Acheson said afterwards, "Korea saved us." The buildup reached its peak in 1953, when the stalemated belligerents in Korea agreed to a truce." - Robert Higgs

"This is military Keynesianism - the determination to maintain a permanent war economy and to treat military output as an ordinary economic product, even though it makes no contribution to either production or consumption." - Chalmers Johnson

"Inevitably, having surrendered to militarism as an economic device, we will do what other countries have done: we will keep alive the fears of our people of the aggressive ambitions of other countries and we will ourselves embark upon imperialistic enterprises of our own." - John T. Flynn .

The Militarized Budget 2017

1968 DoD Civil Disturbance Plan 55-2, or "Operation Garden Plot," is developed in response to the major protests and disturbances of the 1960s.

November 18, 1988 Executive Order 12656 defines national security emergency as "any occurrence, including natural disaster, military attack, technological emergency, or other emergency, that seriously degrades or seriously threatens the national security of the US." Since this date the US military has been training troops and police in "civil disturbance planning".

1990

Estimated value of the weapons, equipment and factories devoted to the DoD is 83% of the value of all plants and equipment in US manufacturing.

2008 "The 3rd Infantry Division's 1st Brigade Combat Team has spent 35 of the last 60 months in Iraq patrolling in full battle rattle, helping restore essential services and escorting supply convoys. Now they're training for the same mission at home. Beginning Oct. 1 for 12 months, the 1st Brigade Combat Team will be under the day-to-day control of US Army North, the Army service component of Northern Command, as an on-call federal response force for natural or manmade emergencies and disasters, including terrorist attacks. After 1st Brigade Combat Team finishes its dwell-time mission, expectations are that another, as yet unnamed, active-duty brigade will take over and that the mission will be a permanent one.They may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control." - Army Times, September 30, 2008 On December 17, 2008,

"A new report by the US Army War College talks about the possibility of Pentagon resources and troops being used should the economic crisis lead to civil unrest, such as protests against businesses and government or runs on beleaguered banks. The study says economic collapse, terrorism and loss of legal order are among possible domestic shocks that might require military action within the US" - Phoenix Business Journal

"Widespread civil violence inside the US would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and national security." - Army War College report

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.




This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
