  •  The problem with building things (6+ / 0-)

    is that no matter what your intentions were, they seldom get torn down. The people who come later find other uses for them. The issue here is no a matter of personal guilt and bad intent of specific presidents. It is realizing how deeply embedded the whole thing has become in the American system of government. It didn't just happen on 9/11.

    •  Yes, well through 4 generations. (6+ / 0-)

      People overlook the period, too, where the threat of nuclear war was the daily background for two generations.

      That had tremendous conditioning/acceptance value for the MIC. Or was that, as I've read, in Eisenhower's original notes 'the Military-Industrial-Congressional Complex'?

      To this moment, a large part of our good-paying jobs exist because of militarization, and it's clearly evolved to where Congress people have voters to lose if that goes away.

      Sigh. All the top people are playing for petty advantage.

      A government is a body of people usually notably ungoverned. -- Firefly
