The future model of small country defences - PART 4 Isokratia Global
Managed Military Services MMS, means that countries can assign their defence to the Isokraticaly controlled global military organisation, under the direct control of the United Nation’s Global government. What this means is that a country can subscribe an annual fee, and enjoy the defence machine of the powerful global military army. Perhaps with a small force being stationed is such a country if required.
Such countries will not even have to maintain an army themselves. Instead they can have a national guard, or a national emergency reserve force permanent or not, to be mobilise during internal requirements. The income to the global army, will go towards the Maintenance of the global military force, alleviating the need for some countries bearing the heavy burden of financing such an army. Human resources relieved from military employment need not become the unemployed. They can be engage in the economic activity which will bring growth.
The loss of investment and employment, from such spending curbs, will not materialise. It will not materialise because it will be greatly overtaken, with what it will be invested in employment forming policies, from the diverted defence budget funds. The same industries, the same factories, the same plants, the same commercial organisations, can be utilised in alternative projects relevant to their production. Demand for the services of these industries not only will not drop, but it will increase many fold, as resources human and material are diverted.
All it will change is the type of products they will use their resources to produce. Instead of tanks, we will be building heavy road building machines, to build road networks around the globe. Instead of military transportation machines, we will be building civil transportation means of all formats, land, sea and air. Instead of warships, we will be building freighters. Instead of warplanes, we will be building passenger and freight planes. Instead of bullets we will be producing consumables.
Instead of warfare chemicals, we will be producing life saving medicine. Instead of surgery precision bombs, we will be building machines for life saving and enhancing, surgery equipment. We will need more ports, more roads, more railways, and more airports. Whole regions of our globe, are in need of basic infrastructure building. Look at Africa, South America, China, and Russia. We will need a millennium to build the necessary infrastructure, which will enhance economic activity and improve human life around the globe, for the benefit of all.
We will need bridges to join regions, to join countries to join oceans. Why not a road bridge over the Atlantic making it possible to drive from Europe to America? The army engineers can be mobilised to design such an Atlantic bridge. I don’t know how. Perhaps based on inflatable and moving foundations. Perhaps build stations and cities in the middle of the oceans. We can do it by just diverting the resources presently wasted en mass by each countries arm forces both in human and material inputs.
The same principle applies to the wasted human resource, now engaged as military personnel across the globe. And don’t think that is just the poor nations, that will benefit from such savings and diversion of material and human resources. The developed world, is in some cases even more in need of such resources. In the United Kingdom and most EEC countries as well as in America, there are major shortages in both mankind and material resources to service the needs of their citizens.
There is un sustained long waiting list for hospital treatment due to shortages. Shortages in mankind in nurses, doctors, and general personnel; Shortages in buildings and equipment. Presently in the UK there are great shortages of nurses and doctors. Imagine the military medical personnel being released from the arm forces into public and private health care. The UK is not alone. There are shortages in all major sectors, vital for the development and improvement of both, the developed countries, as well as the developing and undeveloped world.
Shortages in school teachers; shortages in police whilst thousands of soldiers sit around shining their shoes. Shortages in critical research against diseases when thousands of scarce skill scientist spend their time developing weapons creating diseases. In some countries there is a shortage of labour like the teacher’s shortage in the UK whilst in others there are plenty of labour but no finances to employ them like is the case in Greece where there are thousands of teachers whom the state can not afford to employee despite the shortage of teachers in schools. Wherever we look, there are shortages. Wherever we look, there is room for improvement, only if we had available, scarce resources allocated, or shall I say wasted on military. We have those resources now. We have them in abundance, but they are wasted on the over militarisation of our globe.
Those in the military industry, and other economic sectors, who fear loses of income, and employment, need fear not. In fact to the contrary, they stand to make much more profit; Higher profits generated from long periods of sustained high demand. The only difference is that demand for their products and services, will be from outside the military products. The demand for their products by the way it is now a shrinking demand. If they just calculate how many heavy machinery are needed to build the world, they will realise that the numbers, are by the millionth-fold more, than the diminishing demand for tanks and other military equipment. Then they can calculate the long-term profits and employment.
Such a diversion of means of production on all fronts, will fuel centuries and more of steady growth in Global economic activity. Such growth will benefit everyone from the single individual to the big industrialist in every single country. Such a diversion of means of production will generate such a demand that everyone will be a winner in a win – win situation around the globe.
