America’s Decadent Militarism and the F-35 in Two Minutes
SHORT VIDEO CLIPS, 28 Jun 2021
Aside from the fact that the F-35 is the plane that can’t fly right (see the 2-minute video below), it is a symbol of America’s decadent militarism — the country’s love affair with its deadly War Business and its defiance of the original purpose for the United Nations to “end the scourge of war.”
The Project On Government Oversight (POGO) notes that the F-35 is an example of “crony capitalism” (6/3/21). It is the most expensive weapon’s “program” in U.S. history, yet the F-35 cannot even house a single person of the thousands of homeless who are dying on American streets.
Peaceful alternative to F-35’s and the US war business
The inspiring alternative to F-35’s and nuclear missiles is for America to embrace the Earth Constitution. DWF’s THE SAN FRANCISCO PROMISE calls for the UN General Assembly to launch a Review of the Charter under Article 109(3) and to use the Earth Constitution as its model and guide for an urgently needed “new UN.” With the establishment of a world federal union, there would no longer be wars between nations. They would no longer need armies to protect themselves from each other.
A “new UN” under the Earth Constitution would bring to the world respect for the Law. It is a little-known fact that the worst violators of international law are found among powerful bully nations such as the U.S. with its 800 foreign military bases and secret operations. Strong bully nations routinely mock the UN and international law. The arrogance runs so deep that these nations openly defy the UN’s legal prohibition against nuclear weapons. A “new UN” such as designed by the Earth Constitution is an important opportunity to put an end to the current global war system which traps and endangers all nations.
