If we stopped wars, we'd have enough money to make paradise.

If we ended all of our involvement with wars, and dissolved the military. The money saved would be enough money to essentially feed, clothe, provide necessary shelter, provide health care and provide resources for personal advancement for every single human in our country.

We could be living in some kind of human paradise if we could stop fighting, and unite in the understanding that working together is the most important thing.

What is the reasons you have for why this couldn't work? Why do you think we couldn't get rid of all military spending?

Everyone could fill this thread with reasons why that's not a realistic idea...but you still wouldn't be able to grasp it.

Then again, he is right.

We have spent $21,571,200,000,000+ (~$21.6+ Trillion), in 2004 dollars, since 1945 on war/defense/global empire.

http://www.dollarsandsense.org/archi...0706sturr.html

That amount of money, redirected over the past 65 years, could have made a profound difference on where we are today.

/gotta agree with Dio on this one.

Changing the entire planet like that would take a VERY long time. And many people will be against it and fight it. Those things are great in theory. But to get a vast majority of people to all work together to achieve it is virtually impossible.

If you consider 65 years a long time...

It's too unrealistic because we are too filled with hate and nationalism and greed and other which gets in the way of seeing the truth.

We were the gods of the world after WW2. We could have done whatever we wanted and we did.

If we had chosen to help everyone else in the world develop their agriculture and infrastructure as opposed to spending trillions on weapons systems which have largely gone unused, the world would be a very different, better place today.

Our founding fathers never intended for us to even have standing armies. If they could see how we have squandered our immense wealth, they would be sick.
