The Western World's elite decided in the 1960s that it's a good idea to base our economy on the production of armaments. They have all kinds of contrived arguments designed to confuse the average citizen, to fool us into believing this is a sane plan.
Weapons are the most important trade commodity in the world today - far more money is spent on weapons than on food or medicine.
The money wasted on weapons could have been used to feed, clothe and shelter every human being on earth many times over. How many people would turn to terrorism in a world where everybody is eating and growing healthy and strong ?
This stupid plan has been responsible for most of our problems over the last forty years. Yet our leaders remain passive and obedient.
