Empire Building Under The Radar: How Europe Uses Its External Action Service.
In his book, Professor John McCormick draws the conclusion that Europe might be a superpower, but it doesn’t threaten or cajole. Perhaps he needs take a good look at the EEAS. The title of ‘Spokesman for the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy’ probably provides the best starting point to see exactly how the EEAS is used as a tool for empire building.

Why mining and Oil? The extractive industries are special in their ability to foster the protection of “national interests” and therefore rapacious practices.

FOUR HORSEMEN is an award winning independent feature documentary which lifts the lid on how the world really works.
“…A predatory capitalists truest enemy (as exemplified by corporate/oligarchic greed) and humanites greatest ally is the self-educated individual, who has read, understands, delays their gratification and walks around with their eyes wide open”
One of the greatest propaganda successes of the consolidated and corporate owned mainstream media in the US. has been the ability to convince many naive Americans that people with fascist tendencies do not exist in our society, and it they do, they certainly don’t occupy the highest halls of power.
In the context of Ebola in West Africa now and any expected (planned) future outbreak, we have heavily edited documentation of the total moral vacuum that exists in western political/military leadership. A mirror of the psychopathy of the banking and corporate elite as exemplified by Glencore, GSK, Eli Lilly and Monsanto.
