The Reality Principle -Episode 23

“Imperialism & Islamophobia” with Dr. Chandra Muzaffar

RPLogoThis week, Eric sits down with Dr. Chandra Muzaffar, scholar, academic, and President of the International Movement for a Just World. Eric and Dr. Muzaffar discuss the current political landscape in Malaysia as the country moves toward elections. Additionally, Dr. Muzaffar places Malaysia and Southeast Asia more generally, into the proper geopolitical and economic context, explaining the significance of the region in world economic development. They also examine the strategic development of China and the US "pivot" policy, including the Trans-Pacific Partnership as one of the many tools used to stifle China. Dr. Muzaffar and Eric also discuss Islamophobia and destroy the mythology used to demonize Islam while, at the same time, critiquing the discourse of the "Clash of Civilizations" as merely the facade for a new stage of Western imperialism.

Dr. Chandra Muzaffar is an internationally renowned scholar and public intellectual. He is the founder and President of the International Movement for a Just World. He is the author of a number of books including "Global Ethic or Global Hegemony?" and "Religion & Governance".

  1. Excellent show, Eric!

    As I commented on Ryan Dawson’s last Geopolitics show, and is probably even more appropriate to say in the comments for this particular interview, would you please consider referencing Sibel’s recent series with James Corbett on Gladio Plan B?

    I don’t know if you have had a chance to listen/watch the series. Here is the link to the most recent show (episode six):

    In these interviews, Sibel is basically spilling the beans about evidence that the USA not only has been in control of every major Muslim extremist terrorist event in the last 20+ years, but has institutionalized this strategy in an office in the Pentagon, the former Gladio office. She also discusses the building of the infrastructure through the building of hundreds of mosques and madrasas through the Gulen Movement and funding through nefarious business deals and the heroin trade, which is run by NATO.

    This is big news and, in my opinion, needs to be integrated into all of our conversations. Primarily because this is not speculation, but evidence. It needs to be shared with and communicated to the guests on BFP shows, who can pass it along, since the MSM and pseudo-alt media are not picking it up.

    Thanks in advance for your consideration.

  2. Thank you Eric for the important interwiew with Dr Muzaffar. I think that we all need to be more informed about the contradiction between democracy and corporate global rule/penetration. TPP is not only one of the project´s to stifle China. It is one expression of how corporate institutions is undermining democracy all over the world. Where can we find actual analysis where we learn about the difference between western/US corporate explotation and Chinese development projects in the thirld world? How about some talks focused on these matters? Keep up the good work!
