Sheesh, it's realistic assessment of the history of mankind.War for profit ? Plueeze....
Its a incredibly naive assessment of the overall human condition to think that Corporate profits are what motivates men to war.
EXACTLY, and power and money (different sides of same coin) provide plenty of incentives, especially when, as now, the people making those decisions aren't risking life or limb, and in the VAST majority of the cases, no one they KNOW is risking life and limb.Try digging into a History book and not putting the cart before the horse and realize that Man needs little incentive to kill his neighbors.
It's my view that when groups that wield enormous power profit from taking a certain action, the $10s or $100s of billions in profits provide an undeniable incentive to take that action, and it's not relevant what that action is - war, trade agreements, regulations, whatever. If you disagree, believe financial incentives do NOT matter and have NO effect on decisions to go to war, war is somehow immune from the powerful effect of $100s of billions in financial incentives, we'll just have to agree to disagree.The USSR wasn't motivated by '' corporate profits " to invade Afghanistan or to start and perpetuate a Cold war with us.
More proof that those who know they have no chance of winning are the most free to be honest about the system.
