In most cases it is the other way around. The military will develop some new weapons tech and then it will be adapted for civilian use. For example, microwaves, duct tape, and the GPS were all originally military inventions.

But a lot of money is spent on the military. Maybe if the money was spent primarily on civilians...

Really? Duct tape was originally military? You sure it wasn"t originally for ducting?

It was made to keep the cardboard boxes the bullets were kept in dry. It was nicknamed "Duck Tape" by the soldiers because the water slid off of it like a duck's back. A few took rolls of it back home, where it was found to be incredilby versatile, namely in the realm of ducting and plumbing. Thus, we have this magical silver stuff that holds the universe together.

Then there's nuclear physics, airplanes, submarines, the ******* tank.....

Lots of things civilians invented kinda got overshadowed by what militaries did with them.

Don't forget ammonia.

Well one could argue that significant research into nuclear physics was made possible because of the military wanting an atomic bomb. Sure there was some research beforehand but the Manhattan project more or less jump started everything nuclear.
Also, what possible use would a civilian have for a tank?
