RESPONSIBILITY AND WAR
Free will implies responsibility. War is a characteristic of neither free will or responsibility.
C-Span hosted a call-in discussion about the spending bill that was passed yesterday.
C-Span–7:16AM–caller–paraphrase— People don’t understand that much of funding to Ukraine is in military equipment that is paying ourselves because the arms dealers are located in the USA.
Some people do understand this concept, but don’t identify with corporate-war profiteering.. Doesn’t this, by the way, sound a bit like money laundering?
Anyhoo….how’s about using said taxpayer money, spent in the USA for manufacturing purposes, to purchase…..let’s say automobiles, generators, food, washing machines, health care, and many more utilitarian products……to ship off to local US communities.
Indoctrination seems implicated in a US public that sheepishly accepts socialism for the Military-Industrial Complex including the Pentagon, but so many people shrink from socialism for human beings.
We Are Using Ukraine To Do WHAT?!

C-Span hosted a guest who seems level headed and thoughtful. https://www.c-span.org/video/?524883-4/washington-journal-rep-zach-wamp-r-tn-discusses-electoral-count-act-reform-amp-jan-6th-committee –DECEMBER 23, 2022 | PART OF WASHINGTON JOURNAL 12/23/2022
Former Rep. Zach Wamp on Electoral Count Act Reform and January 6th Committee Report
Former Rep. Zach Wamp (R-TN) talked about the Electoral Count Act reform legislation and the January 6th Select Committee’s final report.

Zach Wamp seemed to place the US Constitution over the Democratic/Republican duopoly. Political Parties weren’t intended to replace We The People in our democratic (small d) Constitutional republic. We need to hear from more people with his views, in place of Party sycophants.
Reports say that within the spending bill is a law that clarifies the role of the Vice-President in the transfer of governance after an election as being ceremonial without the ability for the Vice-President to wage a coupe. Everyone knew that. Surgical monitoring of actions of politicians seems to mirror monitoring of a kindergarten class. Laws aren’t needed where integrity is the norm.
To get back to the US funding of Ukraine, a caller brought up the unpopularity of forever wars of the USA (my phrasing), and the caller said poor people have no business fighting rich men’s wars. All wars are so fought, while the rich get richer during wartime, local community members suffer and die. War is nothing if not simple.
The plight of the Ukrainian public is revolting, in which average people find themselves in the predictable position as fodder for the war of rich men.
