The way presidents once spoke
“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. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its labourers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.” All credit to The Guardian for reprinting these wise, thoroughly relevant words.
It’s remarkable that the last true warrior president, Eisenhower, has proved to be the most prescient voice on — the term he invented — the military industrial complex.
