It looks to me like Milton Freidman and Alan Greenspan helped sell the idea to congress, giving it an economic argument at a perfect time for that argument to be made.
Seems like they stole the idea from the mother country, Great Britain:
Provide the services of professional army, for a fee, to corporations managing their colonial economic territories. East India Co, Hudson Bay Co., etc...
Unless I missed something here, that seems to be the model that we now operate under.
I've yet to see how killing people in Syria, Libya or maybe Venezuela gets the water fixed in Flynt, the trains running right in NYC, or medical care facilities built in rural Iowa.
You have to admire the cunningness of the rich. They have it all now. The media, military and both political parties are now there's to control.
