War. What is it good for? Doesn’t really matter – because the wheels that keep the gears of the military industrial complex turning are spinning as furiously as ever. From comparing missile size to primal displays of brute force, the US has a big one, and we want (nay need) everyone to know it. Where’s the anti-war movement of our parents’ generation today? And why don’t our “progressive” members of Congress stand up to the hawks?

Endless war is just too profitable for shareholders to walk away, no matter the consequences, no matter the side of the aisle. And it goes beyond body count. It’s changed who we are as humans.

Special thanks to guests Chris Hedges and Alice Slater.

From Maffick Podcasts, Party of One. Written, hosted, and produced by Amanda Getty and Gregory Haddock. Theme song by Jonathan Hurley. Production assistance by and Ryan Wentz.
