    Many, many moons ago I got a job as a lowly leaflet boy for British Aerospace. I went to two arms fairs and haednd out leaflets to various passers-by extolling the virtues of the Rapier anti-aircraft missile system. I met several arms salesmen, and without wanting to sound dramatic, I thought the immorality of their trade had clearly entered their souls. They all drank heavily, and were morally dessicated – to my innocent eyes, selling weapons was clearly a Mephistophelean proposition. In a business which covers its immorality in a welter of euphemisms and produces nothing that adds to the sum total of the economic wealth of the planet (to put it crudely, a tank does nothing but be a drain on the state and the taxpayer during its time in service; A tractor produces many times more value than its cost of production over its lifetime) is it really surprising that corruption should lie at the very core of the way it does business? And should it surprise us, given the money to be made in this vastly immoral business, that the canker of this industry should infect the political process of the nations that sell weapons? As Eisenhower warned us, countries never civilianise the military-industrial complex. Rather, it militarises the state.

    If Quotes Chimp are going to buy a new car, it is a good idea to contact your insurance company to see which cars have the lowest rates. You can also obtain the loss data on almost 200 makes and models of cars as compiled by the Insurance Institute for Public Safety.
