Thanks for watching the interview and commenting, Deborah.
Excellent choice of links Lo. Brilliant interview!
Glad you enjoyed it, Virginia.
Excellent interview with Ross Ashcroft. It’s a timely reminder to revisit his film Four Horsemen.
The exponential accumulation of radical information that has been delivered through the web over the past five years, is beginning to bed in. We have an enormous responsibility to utilize this new body of knowledge wisely.
I recommend Michel Chossudovsky’s most recent post, that makes sobering reading….my own view is that this unfolding constitutional crisis is not only authentic, but inevitable & necessary; it has to prove beneficial to the US in the long run, as the proverbial (wild) chickens must come home to roost….and will.
The ‘climate’ is changing….
PS great Honoré de Balzac citation ~ “behind every great fortune lies a great crime…”
That’s a good one, David.
Michael Hudson’s statement, “It’s impolite to talk about reality” was another classic, accurate description of the election and societies in general.
Hey, Jerry, great to see you again. Can’t wait for this election to be over.
Thanks for the comment and the link to the article.
