We have quite a big budget for military Might so that we can prevent invasions and other countries from doing things that might harm us down the road. The military prepares for possible futures that may or may not happen. But we are prepared for people with military weapons. We are not prepared for a virus that can invade and kill. So maybe we need a medical budget to beef up readiness to respond to potential invasive dangers from microbes? It seems that we are not even prepared for the present in terms of personnel and supplies. Nor is there much spent on all important Research and Development to be ready for the future. I hope this is a conversation that will be a result of Covid 19.
