Eisenhower Military Industrial Complex
President (and General) Dwight D. Eisenhower Warning Against the Military Industrial Complex
Dwight D. Eisenhower exit speech on Jan.17,1961.
Warning us of the military industrial complex..
“Good evening my fellow Americans.”
“We now stand ten years past a midpoint of a century that has witnessed four major wars among great nations…”
“…Until the latest of our world conflicts, the United States had no armaments industry. American makers of plowshares could, with time, and as required, make swords as well. But we can no longer risk emergency improvisation of national defense.”
“We have been compelled to create a permanent armaments industry of vast proportions. How to do this? Three and a half million men and women are directly engaged in the defense establishment. Now this conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry, is new in the American experience.”
“The total influence, economic, political, even spiritual, is felt in every city, every state house, every office of the federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development, yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications.”
“Our toil, resourcess and livelihood are all involved. So is the very structure of our society.”
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.
We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.
THE MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX: Let’s talk about it…
So, in light of the General’s own warning, how do you think we’ve done?
Has this Military Industrial Complex created a different kind of America? Have they had undue influence over the government and the political system? What do you think?
Have we created an “alert and knowledgable citizenry” or have the same corporate owners of the Military Industrial Complex also taken control and ownership of the “Media Industrial Complex” and used the mainstream media to effectively “dumb down” the citizenry and rock the people to sleep?
What do you think?
And more importantly than that, how has your standard of living, your financial lifestyle, how has it changed the past three generations that you can remember?
Are you living better than your grandfather’s generation did?
Do you feel more secure?
Do you enjoy a better quality of life?
Are you less stressed or more stressed?
Are you in less debt, or more debt?
And how does it look for the future of your children?
Are they living better than you did as a child?
Does their future look brighter than yours?
Why do you think that is?
Have you maybe considered that the very economic system you’re building your life with is maybe not the best solution for you? Have you ever wondered or sought out, alternative ways to create more freedom, liberty and more economic power in your life?
Or have you resigned yourself to live quietly, inside the current system and suffer the ongoing deterioration of your standard of living as outside economic forces keep making it harder and harder for people to get by?
