  •  Let's also not forget (5+ / 0-)

    that plenty of poor young people with no options will make perfect cannon fodder for their endless wars -- just stick them in a private's uniform, put a gun in their hand and point them in the right direction so they shoot the enemy and not themselves or each other...and if many of them die in the process they'll be "heroes" for a moment then forgotten.

    •  Wars are a twofer (5+ / 0-)

      They keep more competition away from their kids, sometimes permanently, and "war is a racket" at Gen Butler once said, waged for banks and industry.

      These capitalists generally act harmoniously and in concert to fleece the people, and now that they have got into a quarrel with themselves, we are called upon to appropriate the people's money to settle the quarrel. Abraham Lincoln
