Lew Rockwell, founder and Chairman of the Ludwig von Mises Institute, discusses how big government, big business, militant nationalism and a belligerent foreign policy have given the US a “galloping” case of fascism; the real difference between Obama and Newt Gingrich (former owned by the banks, latter by big pharma); the public cheers and standing ovations for uniformed military going about their business; and the re-colonization of mineral and energy-rich Africa.

  1. Lew, a suggestion, look up fundamentalism see how you fit in there.
    Anarcho-Capitalism, hmmmm. How do you start that when most of the wealth is in the hands of few. Any plan for redistribution before firing off anarcho-capital salvo?? Do not misuse libertarian and equate it with Anarcho-Capitalism. What we have today is Anarcho-Capitalism cause there is no arch over the real capitalist. They kill and plunder while you work like dog to earn a living, yet you promote their agenda. Well done.

  2. Today America is the Soviet Union, money in the US is going to the military, welfare and propping up money losing enterprises. And the corporate media is constantly telling people that production is going up.

  3. ANARCHY — FOR THE 51% MOST WEALTHY

    the point
    “Anarchy (no democracy) capitalism… How do you start
    that when most of the wealth is in the hands of few? ”

    Well, you take the richest nation on earth, allow 20% of all that immense wealth to trickle down to only the 51% most educated and wealthy. Then, you sit back and watch them vote in a way that best enslaves the lower half of society.

  4. Yes, production is up – bullets, bombs, drones.

  5. EMPIRE BUILDERS — 25% MOST WEALTHY

    What do you call democracy — when the 51% most educated and wealthy vote to enslave, not only the lower half of society at home, but enslave the lower half of society worldwide?

    How about we call it Empire USA? And how about we agree that America will always plunder by brutal imperialism — until we bar the 25% most wealthy from voting, from holding office and from having anything to do with politics?

  6. Great interview.

    lol … Galloping Fascism … hmm

  11. Rockwell's diagnosis is correct. The U.S. Government is off the rails. It's lawless at home and abroad. It's owned by every big interest with deep pockets. A certain Zionist entity controls America's "Middle East policy."
    Joe Sixpack–that two-pack-a-day, beer-swiggin' denizen of the loading dock–is helpless to influence events.

    A dire state of affairs, ladies and gentlemen. Keep nullification and secession in mind. . . .
