Empire, Power, and People with Andrew Gavin Marshall- Episode 34

The Empire of Terror

EPPTo know the history of your own nation, you must know the history of those whom your nation has oppressed. This episode takes a brief look at some of the stories of modern American imperialism in the post-World War II period, looking at Indonesia, Central America, and the roles played by "statesmen" like Henry Kissinger and Zbigniew Brzezinski. The Cold War was not a struggle between East and West, but rather between North and South: it was a war waged by the industrial nations against the Third World, where the main enemy was not Communism, but independent nationalism.

  1. Great advice about how to learn more about your own history by studying the history of those nations your nation has oppressed. There are always at least two sides to the story.

    I grew up in Western South Dakota and learned quite a lot about the history of how the West was Won by reading American Indian literature, taking Dakota Language, and listening to oral histories from family members connected to events 150 years ago in Minnesota, regarding the Dakota Indian War with the U.S. My own family were white farmers in Minnesota then, and forced to relocate to South Dakota, partially because of the fear of that conflict. For understanding our own history, it’s crucial to learn as much as we can from those who lose the wars.

    Thanks for another great podcast!
