A great animation explaining the cost of war. At least 53% of our tax dollars now goes towards war, an ammount greater than any other country. We’re still paying off the debt from all of our previous wars, debt which is going to the banks who loaned the money to pay for the wars. And it doesn’t look like the government will stop any time soon.
“Tax Dollars At War” is a brilliant visualization of a radio interview about U.S. military spending as a proportion of our national budget. The dialogue comes from a Flashpoints interview with Dennis Bernstein and Dave Lindorff. It is produced by Softbox, animated and directed by Chris Fontaine.
