If you have had enough of war (you probably don’t because you never were in one), here is a list of the Merchants of death – contractors that work for the ‘defense’ industry and profit grossly on it. Knowing who they are, makes it possible actively NOT to support them!
I’ve been there. In the mountains of Afghanistan. Hunted, shot at and held prisoner by a rogue renegade local warlord for weeks. Greedy people start the wars. Dumb people go to war – me for example.
If you buy from these companies you are in fact supporting continuous wars all over the world. And of course, the US is in the front every time.
You also support an industry that is corrupted beyond belief. Do I have to mention that CIA supports and arms rebels all over the world to overthrow democratically elected governments?
I met a pretty rich investor not long ago. He was VERY conscious of his focus on investing. Everything related to War and the sex industry was not getting money from him. No matter the return was high! He loves making money but he would never make money on other peoples sufferings!
This is Responsible Investing!
This list is from a book written by Alan Axelrod. “Mercenaries: A Guide to Private Armies and Private Military Companies.”
The book is well over 400 pages and every paragraph has been thoroughly examined and documented.
