MILITARISM AND THE NATION’S PRIORITIES: As the military budget expands, the nation increasingly lacks the financial means and political will to deal with the true crises of our time, which include poverty, climate change, and the severe depletion of the earth’s resources. KNOW favors a drastic reduction of the military budget and the diversion of the nation’s resources to reduction of poverty, both in the U.S. and abroad, conservation of resources, development of alternative energy, and the retraining of a reduced military to focus on peacekeeping, mutual aid, and reconstruction.
