The formula Ġ = (ρ * ή) / ų was introduced in that first post along with some discussion of the individual symbols or components of that formula.
In this post we will focus on the ή component, which was described in the first post as "the collective need of an individual citizen".
To expand the meaning of the formula beyond the first post, from a general depiction of "the needs" which the ή component represents, we would generally define those needs symbolically as:
ή = (Ş + ĉ + ₣ + ŧ + Ħ + Ę + Ĵ + ŗ + ş)Note that these symbols represent the human needs of shelter + clothing + food + transportation + health care + education + job + recreation + security.
This now allows us to expand the overall formula to:
Ġ = (ρ * (Ş + ĉ + ₣ + ŧ + Ħ + Ę + Ĵ + ŗ + ş)) / ųThe security factor in the equation ş, when multiplied by the national population ρ, comprises all expenditures that are militant in nature, including the espionage factors in the "security budget" (a.k.a. the defense, homeland security, and spy budget):
We have seen that military expenditures of the U.S. are more than the rest of the entire world.(Entitlement Wars - Guns v Butter). We are 5% of world population, but we spend more on imperialism (military, war, espionage) than all the other nations of the world combined.
We have also seen that such expenditures are in fact entitlements, as in welfare.
The great general who also knew how to be Commander In Chief as well as head of budget concerns, has said that when the military entitlements get out of hand, the military is in effect sacrificing the common people on an iron cross.
But when it comes to domestic spending issues like health care for example, we are way down the ladder when compared to just one of our single peer nations.
The rich 1% possess most of the wealth, because they own the weapons industry companies that are in bed with the war establishment headquartered at the Pentagon.
In past posts we have pointed out what this shows is that the militant budget is a tumor, a large unhealthy growth on the national amygdala, which is causing our country serious economic and foreign policy complications.
Thus, a normal balance among the needs of shelter, clothing, food, transportation, health care, education, employment, recreation, and security has become perverted to the point that the notion of "SECURITY" is eating up everything else.
Paranoia posing as "SECURITY" is not part of national sanity folks, nor is it secure.
We must radiate the national tumor with reason and common sense, bring security out of paranoia and into a sensible use of the military, and then keep it that way going forward.
Reagan rhetoric exclaiming that government should be small enough to drown in a bathtub was a psychopathic notion being repeated by an Alzheimer sufferer (Reagan mentored G. Norquist: "ATR was founded in 1985 by Grover Norquist at the request of President Reagan"). Reagan repeated a lot of things fanatics ignorantly said.
