On National Defense

“I still say a strong national defense is the only way to keep us safe,” Mr. Bates insisted.

“But military might is like one of those video games from 1980,” Mr. Magundi replied. “The enemies keep coming at you, more and more, faster and faster, and you keep blasting away at them until eventually, inevitably, you lose. It may take a while. You may be a very good player. You may keep it going all afternoon. But in the end, you lose. That’s just the way the game is.”
