More Wars - More Money | Patrick Bet David
Patrick Bet David tells why more wars means more money.
War is a hugely profitable enterprise for those who are in power. It creates jobs in the military-industrial complex, it boosts the economy, and it enriches the pockets of those who profit from the sale of weapons and other war materials.
In the United States, for example, the military budget is the largest in the world. In 2022, it was over $770 billion. This is more than the next 11 countries combined. And where does all of that money go? It goes to pay for weapons, equipment, and personnel. It also goes to fund research and development of new weapons systems.
The war in Ukraine is a perfect example of how war can be profitable for those who are in power. The United States and its allies have spent billions of dollars on weapons and other military aid to Ukraine. This has boosted the profits of the military-industrial complex, and it has also helped to prop up the economies of the countries that are providing the aid.
War is a racket. It is a business that profits from death and destruction.
The military-industrial complex is a powerful force that drives our foreign policy. It is always looking for new wars to fight so that it can make more money.
War is a form of social control. It is used to keep the population in line and to justify the erosion of civil liberties.
War is a waste of resources. It takes money that could be spent on education, healthcare, and other essential services.
War is a crime against humanity. It is a violation of the most basic human rights.
