Being in a “power position” on the world stage, we *can* help countries that are struggling. I don’t think helping with bombs is the way but there’s many other ways to help.
I mean we already *do* things this way. We have an awkward balance of social programs for the world stage as well as social programs for here back home, as well as empowerment opportunities for both.
I don’t think it’s an either/or situation. We don’t have to exclude one to do the other. But we could work on achieving a better balance.
