|Contents Note:|| Is it too late to descope this? -- G.I. Joe, Ho Chi Minh, and the American art of fighting about fighting -- A nation at peace everywhere in the world -- Let 'er fly -- Isle of spice -- Stupid regulations -- Mylanta, 'tis of thee -- Doing more with less (hassle) -- "One hell of a killing machine" -- An $8 trillion fungus among us -- You build it, you own it.
|Summary:|| In this book the author shows how deeply militarized our culture has become; how the role of the national security sector has shape-shifted and grown over the past century to the point of being financially unsustainable and confused in mission. Here she charts America's dangerous drift into a state of perpetual war. One of my favorite ideas is, never to keep an unnecessary soldier, Thomas Jefferson wrote in 1792.
