Some comments on Militarism and Miseducation

  • Emiliano Huet-Vaughn

Abstract

Clearly, the exorbitant amount of military expenditures is not for legitimate defense purposes.  That is, unless we decide that legitimacy is defined by a Spartan devotion to war and a sort of paranoid hypochondria.  In fact, much of the defense spending our government now undertakes is done not out of verifiable defense concerns but to line the pockets of defense contractors, and to insure world domination by and the profitability of business interests outside the military sphere.
