Bombs, bullets, and bandages in a global market – the military industrial complex – Ep 7.5

Our national defense is an important subject for every American.  And certainly, not the least of which is how our capitalist society supports and enables our military, spending billion of dollars on troops and equipment, but very seldom discussing whether those dollars spent actually mean America is somehow safer.

Here’s our breakdown of the current state of our military industrial complex.  Enjoy!!!

The United States has become synonymous with empire and endless war, American troops sit in 70% of the world's countries, and yet, most Americans don't know that. The military is joined disproportionately by a 'warrior caste’ whom carry this enormous burden, making a less diverse force and ensuring most of society doesn't see their sacrifice. And American tax dollars, funding hundreds of billions in unnecessary spending on global hegemony, are robbed from the domestic needs of ordinary Americans. We aim to change that. Join Danny, Henri, and Keagan, three leftist combat veterans, as they discuss how to turn the tide against endless war and repair the damage America has caused abroad.
