Description

Retired Air Force Brigadier General Henry C. Huglin and politically-active industrialist Harold Willens disagree on whether the military-industrial complex represents a safeguard or a threat to democracy. Whereas General Huglin maintains that the United States must be strong in order to counter the political gangsters who blackmail the world with threats of ultimate holocaust, Mr. Willens argues that if defense monies were used to cure the ills of the world by providing food, housing, and education to the needy, peace would be assured. Oct. 31, 1969.
