As a courtesy I casually listened.

He made one good point. Wars are never lost because the objective is to make money. So Afghanistan for example cost a trillion dollars.That money was not lost and spent, it was created and given to some people. They are collectivly a trillion dollars richer.
Most cant see this.

(same with going to the Moon)

Not only are innocent people slaughtered unnecessarily (squandering human capital) but the money is lost to the entire rest of society (which could have spent it in far more worthwhile ways) as it is given to just a few billionaire corporations and their greedy shareholders.
