  1. Many thanks for this quintessentially sane commentary. One of the major obstacles to solving this problem is that there is too much money to be made in the so-called “defense industry”. There are powerful vested interests focused on sustaining the arms race with our perceived external “enemies”. The “military-industrial complex” that President Eisenhower worried about is more alive and well than ever. Perhaps we need to find a way of making the teaching of civics profitable. Within the reigning American ethos, that might be the only way to change the current dynamics.
