You're talking to yourself here, right?
Capitalism DRIVES THE FUCKING WAR EFFORT, you hack !
No it doesn't. The war drives the war effort. Greed, hunger for power, bigotry, and instinct drive the war. Capitalism profits off of it, yes, but no differently than any powerful class in any economic system.
War is EXPENSIVE...it helps NO ONE, except the big busniss warmongering murderous bastards that usually start them to increase their profits.
Replace the words "big business" and "profit" with the following:
Cadres - property
Landed Elite - land and booty
King - power, land, and influence
Nobles - power, booty, and influence
Dictator - Control and land
Daimyo - rice
If you think Capitalism is the only place where the powerful take advantage of the weak you are naive with at least a dash of daft.
But unlike you Carmo, & your pro trusting the gov agenda, I don't believe the deaths of 50 million civilians & 20 million plus deluded armed forces members is a fair trade for a couple of extra dollars in the bank for some !
Couple extra bucks? Actually the average income for Americans doubled from pre-war period to the post war period.
While millions of others paid for that withtheir lives !
Actually, they paid for the right to be Jewish, and handicapped, and gypsy, and Communist (sort of), and speak their mind freely, and pursue their free endeavors.
Sure some people profit off of war and seek war in order to profit more, but war is a much more complex animal than money can fuel. There is a lot more to it than dollars, and even property. The amorphous concept of power, consistent among humans of all economic proclivities, is usually the key ingredient for war. After that is bigotry, anger, vengeance, superiority/inferiority, and then maybe money.
