In this fine talk, GLEN FORD shows that much of American foreign policy--including military interventions in the Third World--is all about containing China. The US cannot compete with China economically because Wall Street sold off our manufacturing assets to inflate its own profits. To protect corporate profits, the US's only remaining source of power is its huge military--which the government is now wielding globally with blatant disregard of national sovereignty and international law.
Ford spoke at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut, on April 6, 2013. He titled his talk, "Imperialism Hopping on Just One Leg."
A video recording of the talk is available from The Struggle (www.thestruggle.org). Many thanks to them. I have very lightly edited the audio, removing umms and other hesitations.
"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "Yum-Yum tree") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
