Parenti argues that empires are about class and wealth, not nationalism. Our empire is ruinously expensive, but the expense is paid by the 99% in order to make the 1% even richer. The costs include not only dollars but also environmental damage, the gutting of the civilian economy, loss of liberty, degradation of policics and public discourse, increasing poverty, many deaths and injuries of our soldiers, and many others.

The gloomy picture is enlivened by Parenti's trademark wit and humor.
Original 1994 recording by People's Video-Audio, available at . I have condensed Part 2 slightly in order to fit our timeslot.

"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "fluorescent glare") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
Previously broadcast, as NWN #286, in August 2013.
