my proposed Gov., the corperate dictatorship, focuses on achieving both- not only changing the face of warfare to economic rather than physical, but also seeking to agressively expand economically, while maintaining a vested interest in the people's welfare.
Emet if you think war isn't for economics, I wanna live in the world you're living in.
Currently war is shrinking, we're moving away from it in the traditional sense as more countries take on a more gobal view of the world. Currently the major conflicts in the world, 2 involving the US, are not against another country but an idealology which is why new types of tactics are being employed to combat the threat.
Get rid of religion and we're on a good start to gettng rid of war.
The corp dictatorship isn't the best means of a government, as they have to function for profit and can't maintain the type of social programs a larger country would require.
There is also an aother issue that many people did not forsee, which is how far corporate greed can extend. There is a book going around now, I can't remember the name but it was featured on an episode of the Colbert Report, that details how America isn't getting out of it's recession because we won't employ enough people to purchase all the goods we produce.
Now if you're asking how that has any relation to corp greed, the easiest way for a corp to control it's cost is cut payroll. The problem being that once the payroll is cut, it doesn't come back, and the money saved at years end is paid out in bonuses to the top level management, who's already making 7 figures. Lather, Rinse, Repeat year after year.
I'm wondering off topic again....
