This must read article from Paul Craig Roberts in regards to John Perkins’ new updated version of ‘Confessions of an Economic Hitman’ is a must read article as is John Perkins’ book.
No matter what country you live in if your government is privatising the people’s assets there is a reason for it. The reason is not to make our lives better but it ends up making our lives worse. Think of the secret TPP deal, which was set up by big corporations and Governments, signed recently even though the citizens of the countries it will affect have no idea what is in the deal. The only way the citizens know are through the propaganda advertising I have seen.
In Australia the minister that signed the deal, Andrew Robb, was about to resign almost instantly after signing the deal. The Prime Minister stepped in and re-shuffled the cabinet ministers instead. The New Zealand minister had a sex toy thrown in his face by a concerned citizen of that country after the signing. What do these ministers get in return for allowing big corporations to override the citizens of a country? John Perkins’ new updated book may have the answers. Major General Smedley Butler of the US marines may have the answer too.
The following is to Paul Craig Roberts’ must read article.
