REVOLUTION of ’89 — Not for Children
In an ironic turn of events Noam is ‘blaming’ Russia for their nonconformity and “policy of Confrontation” (which matches up with his interview 20 years later in his MIT office — there is the link and it is featured below in the blog
a little before 9:00 and a BEEP —
The Revolution of ’89 explains how the 1950s superpowers’ (U.S. Japan and European countries lead by Germany) political power over the world was established and carried out to maintain a sense of balance. And how military Keynesianism in the United states allowed for economic growth, political expansion, and a select few parties to benefit financially. This is proof if you want it —
“The policies have deep institutional roots. The crucial planning document, N.S.C. 68, written just before the Korean War, warned of “a decline in economic activity of serious proportions” without a government stimulus through military spending. One function of the Pentagon system has been to insure that the public provides the costs of R&D and a state-guaranteed market for advanced industry while profits accrue to the private sector, a gift to the corporate manager. Thus, business has always been troubled by what The Wall Street Journal calls “the unsettling specter of peace,” and it grasps at the hope that a capital-intensive and high-tech military will still provide, as Gen. Edward Meyer assured, “a big business out there for industry.”
For those of you who don’t know Keynesianism isn’t a new idea. Social Keysianism is how Taj Mahal was built. Keynesianism is kind-of like giving the people a job to give them something to do, keep the minds busy while a real plan is worked on. In this case the ‘real plan’ would be to trump (slash gas-up) Soviet spending. To strike fear, or give incentive to work, who knows, but it has resulted in an “internal acceptance of Terror.”
By the 70s Soviet expendature (spending) was dropping but ‘gas’ filled american air — like Al Gore’s greedy self claimed,– but it was Washington’s military propaganda and rhetoric filling the air not the car pool lines. U.S. military continued growingi up till the “mid-1980s Washington was compelled to reduce its aggressiveness, hysterical rhetoric and military growth as the costs of Reaganite economic mismanagement became unacceptable.”
ARE WE FIGHTING BETWEEN MILITARY EXPANSION AND FINANCIAL PROSPERITY (for those who gained from the military expansion), ARE THOSE THE ONLY CHOICES WE HAVE IN THE EXPERIENCE OF HUMAN EXPLOITATION, IF SO FOR WHAT, A PREEMPTIVE DEFENSE?
Are the congress people today covering up for the mistakes of their fathers, Bush’s have been in Washington for 60 years (1st, 2nd, W) I’m sure they are not the only power political family? Are Americans (SLASH AIR-BREATHERS) the ones taking the dick because technology develops fasted than cell phones are destroyed or because of a undemocratic system of the top-society deciding the best interest for its body of people, that was established when the country ( world for that matter) couldn’t read, and couldn’t find books if they were literate because the printing press wasn’t invented (OR INTERNET — the real culprit of this “American Industrial Democracy” if thats what you want to call it)?
