Does America Go To War For Profit Or
for ideological reasons? One way to answer that question would be to look at the past hello There you 5.4 million Awakening wonders striding along the merry path. Sometimes Meandering sometimes wandering off and straying, but always trying to find purpose in our ongoing search for meaning Unity commitment and connection in our video today I’m talking to Richard Hananya, who came on my podcast Under the Skin Richard talks about the military industrial complex Raytheon, Lockheed Martin and how those companies of an employer get this generals who work for the American Military, who formally advised on policy and even in some cases decided on American foreign policy and how there’s a kind of revolving door between the military industrial complex and the American Military system and political system so what a video like this helps you to understand is that. We’re not talking about wacky crackpot conspiracy theorists We’re talking about financial relationships practical and political relationships that you can literally witness and it’s not me telling you. I’m just a bloke in a cut-off hoodie.
I Dont Know Why I Bought
this Richard Hananya is a respected author and journalist. If you want to see this conversation in its entirety please. I’ll go under the skin my podcast that’s on the platform Luminary It’s a subscription model. There’s also a weekly guided meditation on there for me. It’s a lovely platform.
Id Say In This Bit Of The
conversation. We talk about the number of generals that you might recognize from the 90s how they all work at Raytheon and Lockheed Martin now and how you can sort of assume that people you’re seeing on the UK now advocating for war will one day soon end up at Raytheon. Lockheed Martin It’s just an interesting way of analyzing the information that you’re given through the corporate media as if it’s somehow objective rational and unbiased stay to the end because I really want your comments and your opinions on this information that can be quite complex, but that doesn’t mean we can’t understand it together We’re smart ain’t we forgive me for asking such a kind of blunt question whose interests do you think are ultimately served by American foreign policy. How do you what do you think dictates these outcomes. Oh there’s oh there’s no I mean there’s no shame in asking that question because it’s a great question.
Its You Know Thats A Thats I Think
what you have to ask so the you know American foreign policy a lot of if you look at um you know a lot of the there’s groups that disproportionately benefit. from a more militarist foreign policy, so there’s large corporations like Raytheon, Boeing Lockheed Martin. They depend either exclusively on government contracts or almost exclusively and they are involved in the political process. They donate to politicians. They donate to think tanks They employ former generals as consultants and things Like this so there’s the .
You Know Theres The Defense Industry
the military industrial complex. It’s almost cliche, but it’s cliche because it’s it’s true. I mean if you’re an observer of American politics. It has a huge role to play. I think a lot of people don’t realize there’s a lot of the ideas behind American foreign policy that’s not like the military industrial complex comes along and says you know give us all your money because you know we like money and we want to be rich.
There Is Usually Support For Certain Ideas
and you. know that’s what happens the bureaucracies themselves become advantaged by certain policy?NK] is itself sort of a lobbying arm if you look at . The top general of UK. He’s always sort of War hawkish than we’re. The American Administration is and so they have a mission that they believe in and that and that benefits us.
You Know Its Probably Genuine What They Believe
in but you know this is a. This is another influence on our politics so yes generals it’s weapons manufacturers There’s influence of foreign governments. These concentrated interests have an outsized role to play in American foreign policy. Is there evidence like I was surprised to learn just then that Lockheed Martin and Raytheon. These big military industrial complex institutions exist almost entirely or entirely from based on government spending.
Can You See Examples Of Where Theyre Lobbying
money might influence outcomes can. Can you see how I recently learned obviously stuff that you’ve probably known since you were a nine-year-old boy about things like that. Politico is funded by weapons manufacturing money and stuff like can you sort of for our audience sort of just explain well look what it is is. Rayfield and Lockheed Martin spend this much money on lobbying. Then these Congress people own shares in those companies.
Then These Newspapers Report On The
war in this way. Then these pundits go on UK that will have ties to merchanting like so that we can sort of see how that influence plays out yeah. You can actually often you know do it just exactly like you say every every step in the process. So the Lockheed Martin one is actually good that one is actually interesting because the political has this National Security newsletter where they summarize the news. perspectives on what’s going on in the world and at the top it says you know supported by a Lockheed word that’s actually you know better than most things because usually they don’t have that disclaimer so you sort of you sort of you know at least there’s openness in that but Lockheed is actually a very interesting case.

Theres A Book Called Prophets Of War P-R-O-P-H-E-T-S
it’s a double entender and basically talks about Lockheed Martin‘s influence a lot of people have heard of a project for a New American Century . It was a neoconservative think tank. A lot of people in the 1990s who went to serve in the Bush Administration who were behind the Iraq War who wanted to overthrow Iraq long before 9 11. . It was actually started by an executive At Lockheed Martin I don’t know if this cost actually a lot of money.
If You Know If You Looked
at how much money they put into projects for a NEw American Century it might not have been that much but basically their executive was behind this sort of a neoconservative ideological movement. People they come and they look at the ideology. They say Oh look at these neoconservatives. They had crazy ideas and they certainly do and not many people know the story of how they came to power and who was supporting them. I’m the same the same lot the same executive It was actually involved in programs to try to expand Nato in the 1990s.
You Know When We Did That
when people weren’t really paying attention There’s a great There was a great Boston Globe expose five or six years ago about. American generals and they basically did a database of how many go work for contractors after their you know after their retirement it’s almost it’s pretty much all of them now the three and the four Star generals and you know it’s not like you know that’s not like the it’s not like these companies are paying them while they’re you know while they’re serving but you could see how this could be corruption right you you you’re basically auditioning for a much more lucrative job after your government service and that’s again that’s going to sort of incentivize you to prefer certain policies and not others so it’s very clear. I mean just basically anyone you remember from the Bush ADministration or the or the Obama ADministration not not as much in the OBama ADministration. Definitely the Bush Administration to Let’s extend the Trump Administration just look up. What they’re doing now? And you’ll often find that they’re you know they’re on the border Boeing or they’re working for Lockheed or something like that or Zoom actuallyNK] Mcmaster’s on Zoom.
So This Is Its Not Even Like Directly
related but there’s you know there’s a payoff at the end of the you know sort of these people end of these people’s careers and it’s not very subtle that it’s not very hidden it doesn’t take you know super research skills to find any of this out. It’s sort of out of the open and we just sort of accepted in foreign policy, where we probably would be asking more questions in other areas. If you had a more holistic perspective on reality rather than one that was so intentionally temporal, you would look at a member of the government while they are in administration and just say. Say Wow I’m just listening to a future employee of Raytheon or Lockheed Martin, and even while chronologically that may yet not have occurred it will occur because we can see that it always occurs and that these policies coalesce and align so in a sense. There’s sort of no such thing as Government.
The Structures Are So Interwoven The
the government and the government’s actions so um commensurate with the required outcomes of these private corporate institutions that they’re very existence is more a simulacrum rather than a real bureaucratic entity. Responding to the Democratic will of the population that it was elected to serve Yeah I mean and it wasn’t always like this I mean maybe people think this is a certain in certain respect this might be unavoidable, but you know you read history and you read about you know Harry Truman and how he lived after. after he left the presidency. You know he he didn’t didn’t live very well.
I Mean Ulysses Us Grant Ive Been
going back further wrote his Memoirs in order to make money so he had been president. Now you know the president goes There was a said that with the George W bush he’s speaking at some like self-help conference they pay him hundreds of thousands of dollars for a speech. So there did used to be sort of not even laws just Norms you know you’re a president if you don’t go hawk toothpaste or you don’t go speak at some self–help Growers conference after you know after you’re retired um you’re right we we just don’t you know we’ve just become except accepted of it there you know even not even you don’t even have to look sort of temporarily what’s going on when they’re in. You know there was a like Nikki Haley.
For Example, They When They Talked About Her
in the media, she was on the border Boeing and they wouldn’t even say she was on the border, but like they would say former UK Ambassador and they would talk about her past job. You know suddenly the bet. The something that was happening at a different time was relevant and her current job on the board of Boeing, which I think she eventually left for some reason, but she was there at the time and getting quoted in the media so yeah, there’s been um you know there’s just a lot just a complete lack of questioning on the port. I mean maybe on a lot of things but the foreign policy stuff.
In Particular, Theres No Like Theres Almost Like
no left and right you know when they often when there’s. Like one side does something the other side has a reaction in the United States. At least it’s you know sort of a completely United establishment that.
