I’m sorry that he used the phrase “…over whom they’re ruling.” They’re not supposed to be ruling over anyone. They’re supposed to be working for us. We don’t elect people to rule, we elect them to serve. He was very articulate in his interview, but I hope by the next time he speaks he makes this clear. Too many Americans have forgotten what the jobs and responsibilities of citizens and elected officials are.
Typical BBC stenographer regurgitating the imperialist lies and attacking Glen Greenwald for doing the job all journalists should be doing. The BBC is shameful.
Thanks, Chris. Yes, it was difficult to listen to her questions/comments, however, Glenn did hold his own quite well.
Impeccable and exemplary articulation by Glenn G. Bravo!
Poor Kirsty Wark ~ doing her best to defend the old imperialist school blag. Ha!! Come on bebe…own up, the dust is settling on the superannuated elites.
The foundations of global insouciance are trembling. This broken world is awakening to its true destiny, the glorious Sun is rising from whence it never actually set, only occluded by the mind of man, yet always and forever abiding among the myriad stars..
The birth-pangs of a great evolutionary emergence are unequivocally in evidence. We are witnessing the unmistakable shapes of new, hybrid technologies of the sacred; the old establishment stories are feeble, thread-bare and exhausted, new songs are in the air ~ exoplanetary vistas trail promises in abundance.
The soul of the global griot is whispering an artful renaissance…
Inspiring commentary, David, thank you.
It was a difficult interview to listen to, however, like you said, Glenn responded so well.
Slightly off-topic, but not really, I highly suggest reading this new book, The Dandelion Insurrection by Rivera Sun. Here’s a review: https://dandelionsalad.wordpress.com/2013/09/08/rivera-suns-the-dandelion-insurrection-reviewed-by-guadamour/
