The Prosperous Few
Interviewed by David Barsamian
Copyright © 1994 by David Barsamian
A fascinating state-of-the-world report from the man the New York Times called "arguably the most important intellectual alive." Here are a few excerpts:
- We now have an international economy and we're moving toward an international state -- "creating," to quote the business press, "a new imperial age with a de facto world government."
- NAFTA is a secret document whose decisions will override those of Congress, states, localities. It's a real success in the long-term project of depriving democratic structures of any substance.
- Biotechnology, genetic engineering, designing animal species, etc. is potentially vastly more important than electronics. In fact, compared to the potential of biotechnology, electronics is sort of a frill.
- I don't think Somalia should be classified as an intervention. It's more of a public relations operation for the Pentagon.... They desperately need some way to prevent the Pentagon budget from declining.
