Writer's Block: Peace for sale

Is it appropriate for governments to spend so much money on defense and weapons? How much is too much?

I do think it's appropriate for governments to spend money on protecting the people of the country and ensuring the troops which are doing so are well trained and have adequate equipment. However, I do not see the value in a plane being worth $500 million dollars. Though there are a lot of things which I do not see the value of. Like how is a loaf of bread worth $5 when it costs them about a dollar to make it.

I wish the price of "things" would stop increasing and decrease a little, or they should pay people more so that they can afford their mortgages, pay their electricity bills and all of those other things which seem to be increasing at astronomical rates.
