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.

Financial Imperialism-The Case of Venezuela

Click here to access article by Jack Rasmus from his blog. 

By reading this article you will learn about the details of the 21st century's method of imperialism developed by the US/Anglo/Zionist Empire to destabilize (or to regime-change) governments, using Venezuela as an illustration, that interfere with the Empire's quest for profits and power to the extent of global domination. (Venezuela is much more vulnerable to this method of attack than are Iran, Russia, and China.)
Financial imperialism has been waged against Venezuela for decades, but the attack on Venezuela employing financial measures has recently intensified as the US neocons and imperialists have accelerated their plans to launch a more direct attack by political means, including military, to force regime change in Venezuela. At the center of the on-going, and now intensifying, financial warfare against the country by the US are measures designed to destroy Venezuela’s currency.
