Empire, Economics, and Dynastic Power
Looking at the world today, we see a situation of great turmoil and challenge: a global economic crisis getting deeper and more severe, manifested as a class war against the population waged by the powerful; we see increased moves toward war in the Middle East, against Syria and Iran; a drug war which has killed tens of thousands of Mexicans, hundreds of thousands of Colombians, and untold numbers of Afghans. Globalizations is not simply about iPods and McDonald’s, but cocaine and opium. And of course, all the money ends up in the banks, largely owned by the global banking dynasties, such as the Rockefellers and Rothschilds.
