Speaking Freely: Chalmers Johnson

Last edited Tue Apr 7, 2020, 04:35 PM - Edit history (1)

This is a link to the full film. It's refreshing to listen to someone speaking about history from first person, no-spin, just the facts as he saw them. I'm glad to see his books are being noticed now. The video was posted a couple of years ago, and the interview is from 2007.

5. I'm just now delving into his work.

Feel like I've been under a rock... I can't find any more recent interviews, but he died in 2018 & I seriously wonder what he would make of DJT and how much farther we've slid toward military dictatorship.

6. Very good reading

Iirc, the unofficial name for three of his books is The Blowback Trilogy. Details how this country’s government has tracked its big muddy feet all over the world.
