A brilliant, witty speech by MICHAEL PARENTI, delivered in 1994.
In Part 1, Parenti argues that the US is an imperial power. The goal of this empire is not national glory but rather increasing the profits of the Fortune 500. He shows how "neoimperialism" has replaced "direct-rule" imperialism, how empires cannibalize the republics from which they sprang, and how imperialism is a matter of class politics more than national politics.
With many examples from recent US history. Introduction by KD.
Original 1994 recording by People's Video-Audio, available at radio4all.net
New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "unisex bathroom") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
Parenti and I each discuss the US's glorious military victory over the island nation of Grenada. This year marks our great triumph's 30th anniversary!
