Brown Bag Series: Cold War Formation and the Un-Constitutional National Security State

14 August, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Upper-class elitism in the U.S. State Department melded to corporate greed cultivated by armaments production through World War II set the stage for the Cold War. Once committed, the machinery of secret warfare grew like a cancer into a National Security State (NSS). The Constitution prohibits a national security state. President Eisenhower warned us to beware the “disastrous rise of misplaced power,” counseling that we “take nothing for granted.” This presentation looks at how the disastrous rise of misplaced power developed so as to suggest avenues for disarming it. Presenter: Nick Biddle
