Glen Ford on
Imperialism, Wall Street, and War

(in 2+ parts)

In brief

A fine talk Glen Ford gave at Trinity College, in Hartford, on April 6.

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.
