We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

Guns and Butter, May 10, 2017, F. William Engdahl and The Gods of Money

Click here to access an interview with F. William Engdahl on Bonnie Faulkner's Guns and Butter program broadcast from KPFA in Berkeley, California. (Note: This interview is used as a fund raising event to raise money for the station and the program. Thus the actual interview is interrupted in the middle for 12 minutes and for 3 minutes starting at about 50:00m, followed in the final 7 minutes with Faulkner reading passages from Engdahl's book. Thus the interview lasts only about 38 minutes.)

Faulkner interviews Engdahl about his book The Gods of Money in which he focuses most of his comments about the historical highlights of the private control of US money through the central bank (The Federal Reserve) and the powerful impacts that this had on US history.
