The tiger is out of the cage and running ram- pant. Can it be corralled and brought under control? This is of major concern to everyone of US. As we all know, this Number ] national monster is inflation! The spiraling prices are a manifestation, and not the cause, of inflation. The underlying cause of inflation is government itself. The government has been cheapening the dollar by printing money in order to pay its debts. It has also been inflating the currency by spending billions of dollars on nonconsumer goods. The main threat to the safety of the national economy comes from a long-existing and fast- rising national debt that makes the government the principal beneficiary of a cheap dollar. This is the way nations have always met their long-term deficits. It is not correct to say, therefore, that no one wins with inflation. Governments are winners when they meet their debts with inflated currency. Life insurance companies are also winners, since they pay off with money worth a great deal less than the money they recieve in premiums. It may be within our power to keep the problem from getting out of hand altogether, but so long as government itself serves as the powerful pump behind inflation, there is no way of preventing the erosion, a low or fast, or the value of our currency. Whether we like it or not, we are going to have to live with a basic inflationary situation for years to come. If government seding is a major factor, can the present nationT! budget be cut enough to make a difference? It can. Military spending alone represents a maior inflationary force. The most important truth the American people need to be told today is that there is no connection between maximum military spending and maximum national security. If you want to build a house that would be secure against the elements, you would certainly want to have a solid roof. But beyond a certain point, the thickness of that roof would not provide additional protection and would actually put an intolerable strain on the supporting structure/ The same is true of the size of the military budget. There is only so much military hardware we can accumulate before it ceases to have additional security value and becomes an intolerable strain on the national economy. The American people today are carrying the burden of at least 50 times more destructive power than is required to demolish any com- bination of military targets. We have enough nuclear megatonage to expunge every major city in the world including our own. And yet every day up to ]0 more nuclear bombs are added at our stockpiles. Why? It may be argued that the new models of our nuclear and thermonuclear bombs are more destructive and efficient than the earlier ones. Those early models contained more explosive power than could be carried by an armada of ],000 bombing planes with the most powerful TNT bombs ever devised. How much damage do we want to do to a city after it has been totally destroyed? The heart of the problem is that there is no real constituency in the country today for sensible military spending. So many have hands in the military till that there is no incentive to apply the brakes. Even Congressmen and Senators with otherwise enlightened voting records don't dare to say "no" to military waste because they know they would be voted out of office by all those who benefit from military dollars. The bonanza so readily at hand blinds us to the fact that we are damaging the economy on which we all depend - and to the even starker fact that we are bequeathing a potentially bankrupt nation. to our children Whether our president can suc- ceed in mounting a genuine anti-inflation program will rest on his ability to stand up not just to the military but to the labor unions and industry and all those who have a stake in high defense production. The President must find someway to persuade the American people of the mutually suicidal nature of the new warfare. The people need to be told that they must look to the control of force, rather than to the pursuit of force, if they truly are concerned about the safety of the nation and the world itself. In the process, Jimmy Carter may make himself expendable, but he would at long last liberate the nation from the delusion that it can squander its wealth and resources and still have something worth passing along to the next generation other than debts, and a worthless economy. ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: ; : : ":'::::;::; ; ' : : : : : : ::; : : ; ; ; : : : : ; : : : ' ::: : : : : ; ; ;:: : : ' : :::" ; : : : : ; ;:::: : ::: : : ; : ;:: :" : : ....... :: : ":" : : : : : : : : : T : : : : : : : ::" : : : : ::: : : : : :;:'T:: : : ":;:;:" Needs enthusiastic support Editor: Cloverdale is such a nice town. It is famous for its generous volunteerism. Why can't it be famous for its togetherness and spirit of co- operation also? Here we have a great idea - the Community Resource Council. Two years of ground work have gone into this and has pointed out the need for a Letters to the editor Rotar the Lion's Club, the Chamber of Commerce (who sponsored the two year study), and many other vital community organizations were not present. It makes me feel very sad that these groups are showing so little interest in what has been recommended as something good for this town. To make this Resource Council work we need to coordinate the activities of all the various community groups; namely, Health, Youth, Seniors, our most enthusiastic sup- port.
