Bro History: Understanding the War Industry

by | Nov 21, 2020

Henry Szamota interviews Christian Sorenson from the new Eisenhower Media Network (EMN) on his book Understanding the War Industry.

Christian Sorensen discusses the triangulation of Pentagon, Corporate and Congressional interests at the center of the massive spending on weapons of war and war itself. Through a revolving door, senior military officers retire with generous pensions only to rejoin the threesome on a corporate board, lobbying Congress, or commenting as an expert on the endless wars they officiate. This profitable way of life is a way of death for countless victims of war and a way toward stagflation and bankruptcy for subjects of the state.
