Vladimir Zhirinovsky, the leader and founder of one of Russia’s most popular opposition parties, the LDPR, has long been a vocal supporter of Donald Trump. Upon Trump’s electoral victory, Zhirinovsky said something highly interesting that ought to be explored further. He was asked the now ubiquitous question about how Trump for all of his anti-war policies, can stand up to America’s monolithic military-industrial complex.

Zhirinovsky said that in a time when the industrial civilian economy in America is falling flat, it makes good economic sense to re-tool parts of the military-industrial complex to produce civilian goods. Whilst this sounds novel, it actually borrows a chapter from comparatively recent history. In the 1950s there was an explosion of new consumer goods coming out of America. The plastic age, the age of magnetic tape, wide-screen films and surround sound, cars more abundant and sophisticated than ever before, television, hi-fi, microwave ovens and other ‘space age’ household gadgets; were all a product of the military-industrial complex of the Second World War being realigned to meet the needs of an increasingly demanding consumer sector.

Zhirinovsky, also said that, like many other countries, it is possible for America sell military goods in non-conflict zones instead of exploiting conflict through illegal military interventions in order to expand the markets for the military industrial complex.
