Propaganda & Engineering Consent for Empire with Mark Crispin Miller // Empire_File028

In this interview, Dr. Miller used the word “totalitarian” to refer to, I suppose, the socialist countries; does he not realize that word is also a propaganda term invented by the capitalist West?

If I’m not mistaken it seems he also wrongly took a shot at North Korea, helping to further strengthen the propaganda narrative of the U.S. imperialists. Also, Gaddafi was a socialist, although not necessarily of the Marxist variety. He tried to unify Africa against colonialism and provided free education and healthcare to his people. Saddam Hussein was less of a nice guy primarily because he allied with the Americans for a time, before they turned on him; however, even Hussein maintained a generous welfare state and kept radical Islamists and sectarianism at bay.

I wish people, like Dr. Miller in this interview, would stop throwing in all these caveats when criticizing U.S. capitalist imperialism. The U.S. Empire is the number one bad guy on this planet. No one else can even hold a candle to them!
