Prof. Michael Parenti, has been an acquaintanceship peRson since 1968—beRkeley, bitchen-Cal. His undeRstanding of “socialism” helped us remuneRate between people, places, adjuncts of scheming-Academia. I was as yet, not fully induced by “geo-moRphics” my study of geogRaphy as an Existentialist. Michael’s other books are replete authentic baring, on the Life of stRife, but benignly. His reality is what he contexts w.o. expostulations of ego-centRism. I have heard him in Seattle, in beRkeley, as I wondeR why he’s not more readily asked to give his talks, which are humorous and didactic. His talks, aRticles, books are well-worth reading hearing and occasioning thRu one’s own notes. He undeRstands the theoRetics of socialism, socialist-paRties, and has an antipathy foR plutocRacy.
“Richly informed and written in an engaging style, Against Empire exposes the ruthless agenda and hidden costs of the U.S. empire today. Documenting the pretexts and lies used to justify violent intervention and maldevelopment abroad, Parenti shows how the conversion to a global economy is a victory of finance capital over democracy.
As much of the world suffers unspeakable misery and the Third-Worldization of the United States accelerates, civil society is impoverished by policies that benefit rich and powerful transnational corporations and the national security state. Hard-won gains made by ordinary people are swept away.”
