    Your chance of getting a 6-figure job at a defense contractor after you get out of the military is better if the government is buying lots of defense equipment.

    If there are lots of wars, the government buys lots of defense equipment.

      - communism, anarchism, islam - with adherents from all races and nationalities are the best for demonizing and being paranoid obsessives about "the enemy within." they needed something or someone to replace the commies once the soviet union fell apart, hence this.

      and for the dominionists, it allows them to convince themselves that all those who oppose them domestically are foreign evil enemies who can be slaughtered without regret.
