There is a funny pattern that has taken over the globe, that many people have not stopped to notice and think about as of yet.
You must be familiar with the Arms Race that started after the end of World War II. We might think that this race ended with time but honestly, it still exists. This time, instead of hiding it; it is right there under our very noses.
Have you wondered how terrorists and local militant groups get arms? The people who make the arms. The defense sector is a lucrative industry, but that industry will end unless they do not get reasons to continue expanding and making new arms and weapons. What are those reasons? Sudden rise of new groups that are working against the system and decided upon taking up arms and weapons for their cause.
When these people take up arms and weapons, the defense industry uses their powerful media influence to terrorize people and show them that see, we need to make new and more powerful weapons, so that we can keep you safe.
Then the countries that are involved in the wars going on in the Middle East, Africa, or any part of the world really with any conflict, show off these weapons and other countries get impressed and want to buy them.
This is the form that the arms race has taken in our day and time now. So many factors go into the making of a war, this is just one way of looking at.
Next time, you are watching a war movie or just some media recording of a war, ask yourself: Is what I am seeing just another form of advertisement, just for something much more worse and lethal than alcohol and cigarettes…?
