- $30 Billion per year to would end world hunger
- $17 Billion per year currently spent by the US on the Nasa space program
- $4.8 Billion per year currently spent by the US on cancer research
And the US spends $1000 Billion+ on a plane, designed to kill. Imagine, if you can, a world without war, it's easy if you try.
Yeah...fascinating world really. But it's not how things works.
You don't have to look far in history to see that. before the US became the clear world leader, it was a time of war and conflict almost everywhere in the world. In fact, just in the last decade, with less than 5% of the world population in conflict, we are living during the most peaceful time in history (counter-intuitive, I know).
Maybe, one time, the humanity will change enough so all armies will be dismantled. But, for now, we need hat the US stay the clear leader for a little more longer.
