Short Link to this Quote:

[collapse]

 

In this quote, Martin Amis is drawing a parallel between weapons and money in terms of excess. His interpretation is that similar to how many never feel they have enough money, there is also no limit to the desire for more advanced weapons or military strength.

Amis seems to be suggesting that for some nations, private groups or individuals, the accumulation of arms holds the same appeal as amassing wealth, with no clear sense of a point where “enough” firepower has been obtained.

The overall message appears to be that an insatiable appetite for increasing military capabilities mirrors endless pursuits of more money, with both prone to exceeding all reasonable needs or goals.
