    He’s right. I’ve described the military as a socialist state within a state. Military contractors are essentially state industries. Universities are to a large extent state research labs.

    As he says at the beginning, there’s an upside to this. State spending got us tech that capital markets would not have. Downside I suppose is that we gotta go fight people to justify buying all the toys we bought.
