Discussion in 'Politics & Religion' started by Gringinho, Sep 16, 2008.

  1. Pretty interesting stuff. The June 2008 book by Naomi Klein, makes some compelling views on how it all "ties together".

    I'm a big fan of systems science...

    There are several parts to this interview 01 - 06.

    Interesting how George W. Bush's father talked of a peace dividend with economic benefits to ending the Cold War.

  2. This is interesting Gringho. To exploit chaos, fear. It is the same questions of comecon vs marshall plan. I will definately buy this book for Naomi's insight.
