This is an interesting interview of John Perkins, author of the book
"Confessions of an Economic Hitman". It is a fascinating book, but if you
can't make the time to read it, at least try to watch this interview. It
is only ten minutes long.
If you find this interview interesting, you might like to watch the film that it came from, which highlights many of the problems going on in our country right now. We can't fix any of these problems until we first acknowledge that they exist. I know these topics are a bit depressing, but ignoring them is only making things worse. Wake up. Educate yourself. And then we can all work together to fix this mess we're in. This is way more important than the Mardi Gras parade. Perhaps if we spent our time on more important things, we wouldn't be in this mess to begin with.
