"Arsenal of Hypocrisy: The Space Program and the Military Industrial Complex"
The glory days of NASA are
over! Today the Military Industrial Complex is marching towards world dominance
through Space technology on behalf of global corporate interest. To understand
how and why the space program will be used to fight all future wars on
earth from space, it's important to understand how the public has been
misled about the origins and true purpose of the Space Program.
Wednesday, November 24, 7:30 p.m.
Perhaps a return visit to Iraq or Afghanistan? Or we could do a study evening using materials by Project Ploughshares and others on ballistic missile defence, or maybe BMD and NORAD. Any thoughts on this? Any other ideas? Program details to be determined ... and announced soon!
