Brave New Films on Jul 6, 2015

Many Americans are not accustomed to the idea that America sits atop a global empire, but with military bases and forces spread out across the world, interventions in dozens of countries – there’s simply no other way to describe our “empire.” Expansion is the path to security, and to achieve security you have to control everything of value.

  6. “We” don’t own the world, the international corporations own the world. The US government and military are merely tools in the billionaires’ control.
    With the new brand of trade deals, conflicts are managed by international corporate tribunals. They even have the power to override federal, state and local laws.
    Corporate control of government is fascism, like in the 1920s.
    World fascism means international corporate control.
