The "cold war" was a game devised by the Military-Industrial Complex to vastly increase government spending on military hardware. The Educational-Research Complex doesn't play by the rules of that game. The size of those huge university laboratory projects with vast government funding is a "black budget" and is not disclosed.from Eisenhower's Farewell Address to the Nation, January 17, 1961:
Any time you hear of a genocide, mind-control, weather or population control project and it is somehow connected with a military facility, you can assume, right off, that is a FALSE story. It is, in fact, a mis-direction away from the Educational-Research Complex to keep you looking in the wrong place. Military people have taken an oath to protect their country. It is against their oath and lifestyle to actively participate in projects which are designed to control or eliminate populations, unless during a time of war.
I know of no patriotic military person, of any country, who would ever participate in such projects which were designed to be used on their own citizens. As proof, even the German army in the 1930's and 40's did not go along with Hitler. That’s right. Hitler had to form the separate Waffen SS Nazi army units, which pledged an oath to Hitler and not to Germany, to carry out the Nazi program. The German army refused to allow the SS units to integrate and become part of the regular army. Today, the same is true of the U.S. military. They do not, nor would not, go along with the Educational-Research Complex nor any of its schemes.
No, instead, it is left to those nit-wits in academia, who have taken no oath, and dream up those grandiose plans to improve the world by eliminating all the undesirables through population control and genocide. Or even control world economies, nations and populations using high technology. Both the U.S. Congress and the British Parliament have committees which oversee military expenditures and thus any "secret projects" to be used against citizens would be exposed. There are really no equivalent committees to oversee the "strange" state-of-the-art university laboratory projects. Those projects are far "too complex" for congressmen to understand, so the over-sight process has been left to the universities, i.e. the Educational-Research Complex, to "scientifically" watch themselves.
"The prospect of domination of the nation's scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present – and is gravely to be regarded.
Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite."
