America leads the world in arms dealing, starting wars, and developing new methods of mechanized death. Even if you leave aside the basic insanity of the Cold War and its stockpiling of nuclear weapons on a scale that can potentially decimate life on earth, all the reasons listed above should be enough to make anyone think twice. We may be accustomed to feeling like a superpower, but that isn’t the same as feeling safe and secure. Having tried militarism for the past 60 years, perhaps we can give peace a chance and see if genuine safety and security lies there instead.
