Whose Security? | Noam Chomsky

The entire defense industry is corporate welfare funded by taxpayers, but you’ll never hear them say so on Faux News.

“The U.S., the new programs insisted, must maintain its ‘defense industrial base.’ The phrase is a euphemism, referring to high-tech industry generally, which relies heavily on extensive state intervention for research and development, often under Pentagon cover, in what economists continue to call the U.S. ‘free-market economy.’”
