The cost of making America Great...
The US spends almost one third of the total world expenditure on defence.
You can combine the expenditure of China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, India
and France, before you reach the equivalent amount.
Just think of all that starvation throughout the world, the pollution of
the air, water and land from making and using military equipment, the
waste of human resources, the waste of time, the low productivity of
nation states who have to bear the burden, the lack of wealth by the
general population. For what purpose...one may very well ask...world
domination by the elite of one country? Still, it has always been that
way, there is always one empire which rules the roost for a while, but
they all collapse in the end, don't matter how much they try to continue
with it, expand it, control it, there is always some other person,
country, nation state; chipping away at the foundations of the statue...:-)
