BRATTLEBORO Democracy Forum - The Bastard Birth of the Military-Industrial Complex: The Cold War did not have to happen. FDR and his advisors foresaw its possibility and worked hard to avoid its emergence. In 1944, China and the Soviet Union agreed to join FDR's design for a post-war order based on disarmament, free trade, and national self-determination. Two weeks before announcing their plan to the world, FDR died. Immediately thereafter, military hawks and business moguls in and out of the State Department jettisoned FDR's foundation and substituted a policy framework that gave birth to the military-industrial complex. Hear the details and ponder the tragedy. 12 noon - 1 p.m. Free. River Garden - Brown Bag Series, 157 Main St. Information: 802-246-0982; Click for more info on Web in new window.
