United States Eases Regulations on Exporting Weapons: “Quit Arming the Fucking World, Man”, Bill Hicks

So, it looks like “in a boon for military contractors, the United States is relaxing controls on military exports, allowing some U.S.-made military parts to flow to nearly any country in the world with little oversight.”

Considering these latest revelations, I thought it would be worthwhile sharing a few wise words from one of the greatest teachers that I have ever come across, Bill Hicks:

“Quit arming the fucking world, man…. We keep arming these little countries and then going blowing the shit out of ‘em. We’re like the bullies of the globe. We’re like Jack Palance in the movie Shane, throwing a pistol at the sheep herder’s feet.”

    So what – it’s capitalism, not crony capitalism. The world should be armed – it’s a dangerous place. Just because the mil-ind complex is full of corruption and crony capitalism doesn’t mean that all activity within this industry is a bad thing.

      -Getting more dangerous all the time, thanks to the armaments industry.
