Mr. Eisenhower, true statesman that he is, in his role as leader of the free world warned us that military spending could increase by its very nature. That once unleashed, the military industrial complex will take on a life of its own. The relatively new scale of war-like yet primitive behavior will consume budgets, agendas, and policies of many nations' and serve to divide rather than unite. The military industrial complex can become the tool that ethnocentrism will utilize to impose its way of life on others who are not so well defended. Of profound importance, this outgoing President is warning future Presidents of the United States as well as other political leaders to not loose sight of the power and influence of this reality nor let it be co-opted by those who have the financial or political wherewithal to do so. Mr. Eisenhower, a wise and forward-thinking individual, is warning us of the supremely enticing, yet highly problematic reality that will accompany us should we allow ourselves to invest in military solutions to the complex world problems. Also, he is hinting at the reality that political and socioeconomic problems cannot be properly addressed or solved via military means. The military industrial complex looks and feels like a protective barrier against evil, however, in reality, it is an ever growing beast that if not managed will eventually destroy us. He is clearly stating that if we venture down that road it will have the most profound implications upon the physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing of our countrymen and the whole of humanity. He is warning us to use power judiciously to serve all humankind otherwise it will be the vehicle for the downfall of our nation or perhaps become method by which our species will become extinct. Every American and every thinking person on the planet today would be wise to heed the advice of Mr. Eisenhower and stand up to the tyranny of conservative thinkers who desire nothing more than to impose their standards and values on others. Imperialist ideals should be replaced by tolerance and peaceful co-existence if humanity is to survive for we are coming into an age where weapons of mass destruction will be utilized to the detriment of all that we hold sacred and the generations to come.
