Noam Chomsky's Wisdom

The man himself, Noam Chomsky honors the less intelligent by sharing with us the following wisdom:

It should be mentioned that there's another element to the military-industrial complex issue, which he didn't bring up. At that time, in the 1950s, as he certainly knew, the Pentagon was funding what became -- a lot of Pentagon funding was going into creating what became the next phase of the high-tech economy at that time: computers, micro-electronics, shortly after, the internet. Much of this developed through a Pentagon subsidy funding procurement, other mechanisms. So it was a kind of a cover for shifting -- for a basic theme of contemporary economic development. That is, the public pays the costs and takes the risks, and eventual profit is privatized, in the case of computers and the internet, after decades. So that's another aspect of the military-industrial complex which is worth keeping in mind.
