Economic Hit Men

Who is John Perkins and why has his story not been more widely told? Is he one of those prostitutes who commits great evils and then feels sorry at the end of his life after he has committed his crimes? I was astounded at the open admission of so many U.S. led overthrows of legitimate governments Tuesday night on Air America. I thought this was supposed to be a big secret.
I invite comments to educate the ignorant.

feeling bad

John Perkins is our hope and a ray of sunshine. He is an evile doer who has had a change of heart. Not only is he no longer doing bad things, but he is now helping to do good things.

My hope is that everyone in the 'system' has a similar change of heart.

educate

"I thought this was supposed to be a big secret."

It hasn't been a secret, just censored in corporate media by the feds. We've got a guy who was pardoned for his dealings in the Iran/contra affair as NSD, that's not a secret either. What, me worry? Welcome to the New American Century, land of the greed, home of the slaves.

NOTE: ALL DENOUNCEMENTS OF LAROUCHE MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY A REFUTATION OF THE IDEAS PRESENTED BELOW. NO SLOPPINESS ALLOWED. WE ARE FIGHTING FASCISM, THESE GUYS ARE SHARP, SO MUST YOU BE, TOO.

while john perkins' book outlines well the inner-workings of the parasitical structuring of the post-Bretton Woods economic system, he mis-identifies the u.s. role of recent decades in the looting of the 'third world' and misses the significance of george schultz's role in producing a systemic shift in policy beginning with the floating of the dollar in 1971. these errors, along with two additional typical boomer misconceptions, are crucial to come to an understanding of, in order to organize a successful reorganization of the current disintegration of the world's economy. currently, the below article along with four other recent papers by larouche, are being published in a book, and distributed internationally, for the purposes of developing a movement internationally around the necessity for a new bretton woods conference. only a new bretton woods can facilitate the prevention of chaos ensuing amidst the collapse of the meltdown of the financial system and the shortcomings of our productive capabilities to support the lives of all the people.

How about New York Times best seller list, Coast-to-Coast Am, Democracy Now? Nice to have him speak up. Do you think indictments will follow?

it's out

then overt corruption becomes the "normal" ayof doing business, and we're all overtly(as oppossed to covertly) complicit. The elite continue to occupy our minds. Now they are refining the message.

John Perkins is a CIA stooge.
