An article linked to on Drudge is reporting that the US actually considered nuking the moon to intimidate the Russians at the height of the Cold War.
It instantly reminded me of a hilarious skit from the 90s comedy series “Mr Show” in which the American people are whipped up into a patriotic frenzy (complete with a country music anthem) over NASA nuking the moon.
News or parody? With the state, who can tell?
And Paul Krugman must be wondering if such destruction would somehow boost aggregate demand. It may be too little too late for Bastiat’s candlemakers, but think of the boost to the flashlight industry!
