The Last Empire

“A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.” – Oscar Wilde

It is the illusion of powerlessness among the people which upholds every empire – for a time. But the illusion eventually wears off. No empire lasts forever. Every empire falls in the end. This last, and hopefully final empire, which I would call the global neofeudal corporate oligarchy, or corporate fascism, to be more direct, will fall. The empire faces four major threats: environmental catastrophe, a soon to be crippling energy crisis, war, and revolution. The chances of it surviving all four, are essentially zero. That should, however, not make us complacent. It should make us bold, and absolutely resolute.

    Must-listen. Parenti nails it.

    Remember, though, this was from 2012. The richest eight individuals now have more wealth than the poorest half of humanity, and bailouts to the 1% are not in billions, but in trillions. And while the plutocracy now paints itself green, it remains sociopathic and rapacious, and cannot stop itself from destroying the planet for short term profit.

    Now that you have the background and the big picture, you need the update. The following interview is extremely important. Listen to it carefully, then watch the film, and follow and support Rocco Galati and Catherine Austin Fitts. This is the fight of our lives. And it is true, we must fight to win.

    Now, how do we build the resistance? Networking and communication are key.
