The True Cost of Military Equipment Spending: What Else Could the Money Buy?4
By T6W Staff
Since the dawn of mankind we’ve been coming up with new and creative ways to kill each other – you could argue that it’s what humans do best. The infographic below takes a look at the amount of taxpayer money that goes into funding specific military equipment, ranging from ‘small’ items to the truly gargantuan in price. The graphic compares the cost of these items to things that the average American can relate to, such as median income, cost of a college education, health insurance, or the price of buying a home.
While most people believe that there is a need to maintain U.S. military supremacy, they also feel that spending by the Department of Defense is often unjustified. Then, again, our world is rapidly changing.
Could these weapons ultimately be used against the truly innocent?
On November 22, 1999, 30-year-old San Francisco artist, Daniel McCarthy, volunteers for what was to be a harmless grad student’s neurological experiment to record brainwave patterns in connection to various tasks. When he returns home, he makes the shocking discovery that he’s been missing for eight days and has no memory of where he’s been or what he might have done. Daniel begins to conduct sensory deprivation experiments in his downtown loft in an effort to jog his memory. Visions of what appear to be future events involving corporations that don’t yet exist, political events which have not yet occurred and the ultimate deaths of millions of people pour out from deep within his subconscious. These terrifying visions set Daniel on a mission to understand them fully in an effort to stop them from taking place.
After many years of his quest, for the truth, Daniel leads an underground revolution against those who are responsible for the turmoil that is to come.
