Spending for Military and Nuclear Weapons Makes Poverty Worse — Glen’s October 2022 TV program

The October 2022 program on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV series “connects the dots” between poverty in the United States and excessive military spending, including the costs of nuclear weapons:

  • This TV program begins by recognizing the extent of poverty in the United States – the richest nation on earth. Poverty is a serious crisis – and it is getting worse.
  • Next, we recognize how excessively expensive the U.S. military has become. The U.S. spends a gigantic amount on the military – much, much more than is necessary.  Both political parties keep increasing military budgets far, far beyond reason.
  • We spend a few minutes examining nuclear weapons. We have far too many nuclear weapons – and their costs are outrageously excessive.
  • After we have looked at these hard realities, I invite us to consider what the American people feel about these disparities – escalating poverty and escalating military spending. We also consider what the American people’s best values are.  What do our nation’s people really need and want?
  • The second half of this program will propose some solutions that are humane and sensible.
