The Military Industrial Complex Takes Control

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

In holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.

    No wonder Sweden is a decline. What a wastebasket. Get ready for half of Europe migrating to escape for a better live in N. America (sound familiar)?

      It certainly isn’t in decline… I’ve been to Stockholm last month and found it a prosperous, orderly, pleasant place full of friendly people… safe to walk the streets. An immense amount of building work going on…

        Of course you did dear. One anecdote of your tiny experience where by pure luck and blissful ignorance you dodged a bullet, or rather a hand-grenade

        That’s surprising Ms Griff! Sex crimes are up 70% since 2013, and almost 7 times what they were in 1978. Are you maybe as unattractive as you are obtuse? That would explain a lot.

        That’s why Stockholm is rape capitol number 1 in Europe

        Guess who made Stockholm the leading rape city?

        Living in your official MSM barbie world must be a hard full time job as so many illusions had to be kept up.

    Who gets to decide which experts will govern?

  3. Laurie says:

    Again, an excellent juxtaposition of contrasting political forces and philosophies.

    This faith in “experts” leading us that the left is so fond of was bitterly fought against by the founders of America, the world’s last great hope.

    People should read Plato’s “The Republic”. Even the father philosophers concluded that such a autocratic state couldn’t survive, because it was in conflict with the true nature of man. Oh yes, liberal professors would try to argue that this was not Plato’s conclusion, but it was….
