  • Add in incarceration costs ($81.3 billion), the FBI budget ($9.9 billion), and relevant accounts within the DHS budget ($52 billion, per Biden's FY2022 request, $100m more than last year) and you realize the US’ non-military militarized budget is more than China’s actual military budget. Shit’s wild.

Thanks for your time,
