there are many little things we can do and I've found that we have shopping power. Lets use it. I don't accept that the oil companies are that powerful when free energy exists all around us & their "minutes" are numbered. Not days; MINUTES. Game over. Seriously. We need to get rid of money. As long as we have that, we are in a slave system. Free energy for all, and all contribute their skills to make their communities Thrive.

It doesn't absolve him of his international crimes of being an economic hitman. Now he gets paid to talk about it. It's a double reward for bad behavior. Formula for success: do something terrible in the world for the CIA, then write a book about it. How about this you bunch of mindless clowns: don't buy his book!

If no humans ever took that job because of a high sense of ethics, then there would be no enablement for intelligence agencies to play economic spy games with other countries, impoverishing and harming millions and then spreading that bad karma onto us and our culture.

We go along in our daily lives enjoying affluence--iphones and cars and cheap food and cheap clothes, never thinking about these war games that enable that lifestyle. Well now we know--thanks for forcing us into hypocrisy. But what can we do about it? How do we learn how to be wrong; how to share with the rest of the world; while apologizing and dismantling the spy game apparatus?

On another note I want to say Regina Meredith is one of the best interviewers I've seen on television. She's on target with every question. Great job, Meredith! So impressive.

This was so much better than I thought it was going to be. I really dislike economics because I just don't understand. This mans knowledge about capitalism and war, as well as other economic information is so easy to understand. He is astute and articulate. Another interview that everyone should see. This scorched earth capitalism we are living under has got to stop. Become aware and vote with your pocket book. It's the only vote that counts anymore.

Every time I watch one of Regina's interviews, I feel as though my world has expanded exponentially. Again, I have absorbed new information. The pieces of the puzzle are starting to come together. I cannot believe how poorly our children are educated. Nothing of this kind is discussed in our schools. The people of our country are so mislead. When I see things like this interview, I have hope. Thank you Regina!

Would be great to have a "recently tab" just for the "conscious media network" category because now it's not easy to follow what videos are new and just uploaded...thanks

Great series,this series makes me think and get a different perspective than what I would see on mainstream media.( which I don't watch) It is kind of scary to think 400 individuals are running are world and yet have no conscious about what they are doing. What would have happened if the internet wasn't avaliable to us. I am also glad that the guest stated that it is our dollars that can change what happens in the world.
