  9. This is a brilliant episode; it should have been extended as a double interview. Despite the brevity, the content is deeply and acutely relevant. Alfred McCoy’s work is exceedingly interesting. I think he warrants far greater recognition, than he has hitherto enjoyed. Perhaps this book will stir a few of those self-congratulatory & docile minds that have been lulled into that smug, solipsistic trance of exceptionalism, that infests the American political imagination.

    The fact is the calculus of global (planetary) power has shifted forever. The old frontier, garrison mentality is virtually useless and obsolete. Nothing can any longer be taken for granted, when the very oxygen we need to breathe is slowly being asphyxiated by persistent ocean acidification, just as the risk of nuclear pollution is irrevocably growing to imminent threat levels.

    We should not be so conceited as to suppose, that the crust of our Sacred Earth would never convulse in a spasm of seismic adjustment to swallow half of civilization ‘overnight.’ What use will be the hubris of nations then?
