Missile Defense Shield - Star Wars
#1
If Israel with all their technological and military might (and that of the US too) cannot defend itself from Hama's crappy little rockets (they don't show up on any radar or screening,sensing or predicting technology) I don't know why the discredited and scientifically unsound Star Wars is even entertained. Much better to save all that money and give everyone free housing, health and education and clean water.

On the other hand [of course Cheers], think of all those tens of billions of dollars finding their way into the coffers of major arms companies for their "toys".

If they don't work, so what, there's enough grease factored in to the contract to make everybody who matters as happy as bunnies.
The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge.
Carl Jung - Aion (1951). CW 9, Part II: P.14
