with Abby Martin
teleSUR English on Mar 14, 2017
Steve Bannon has been propelled over the last year from fringe media outlier to top propagandist of the U.S. Empire as Trump’s Chief Strategist.
From his Wall Street roots and apocalyptic film career to his cultivation of alt-right bigots at Breitbart News, Abby Martin exposes Bannon’s true character in this explosive documentary.
Dissection of Bannon’s ideology of “economic nationalism” and desire to “Make America Great Again” reveals the danger of his hand in Trump’s agenda.

Very interesting, and concerning to say the least.
Personally, I think the resistance will come from ‘offshore,’ as the myth of American supremacy and infallibility evaporates in the discerning consciousness of those who may be better placed to withdraw their support for this chaotically reactionary administration.
Once the USA becomes isolated from its erstwhile allies, Cicero’s fabled sword of Damocles may fall upon those who are most eager to wield power indiscriminately when the thread of credibility breaks.
Of course the sword itself is a symbol of the mind; & any mind distorted by fear, loathing or fantasies of personal apotheosis, is in no fit state to form rational judgments or exercise responsible discretion. The leader who is aware of the price leadership exacts, will always be realistic in their adjudications, whereas the usurper or one who craves power to satisfy their vanity is simply ignorant of the vital elements of a healthy life.
Mr Bannon reminds me a lot of a small child who was petrified by some dreadful, fabricated religious bogeyman when in infancy; at the very time when he would have been most susceptible to such cruel terrors.
