Military resources are used for death, destruction, and suffering. Rather than funding the military we should support civilian projects that foster life, construction, and well-being.

I am sensitive to the dangers now threatening us with so much (near 50%) of our discretionary national budget devoted to military purposes, wars, and the corporations which support and promote them. These all diminish the resources needed for the welfare of our own country (and others).

I haven't yet worked in the military industrial complex and I never will. I object to secrecy as well as aggression. The military industrial/intelligence complex needs to be disassembled.

I'm for using war-money to educate more people in philosophy and sociology. I think this kind of education would make people more humble and less egocentric; a key to prevent war.

There is nothing normal about the American war machine and joining the military-industrial complex is not a value-neutral act. STEM students and workers must collectively refuse to compromise our values; instead, we must organize to deny our labor to military firms/labs and push for a democratically-determined reallocation of money towards restorative, socially useful science.

For the past 35 years, I have been studying nonviolent alternatives to military systems. There is a burgeoning body of research showing that methods such as rallies, strikes, boycotts and sit-ins are more effective in overthrowing repressive regimes than armed struggle.
