Over 4 hours doco. Corporate Empire and the Rise of the National Security State:
This documentary is about the foreign policy of the United States. It demonstrates the importance of the political economy, the Mafia principle, propaganda, ideology, violence and force.

It documents and explains how the policy is based on the interest of major corporations and a tiny elite to increase profits and the United States governments own interests in maintaining and expanding it's imperialistic influence.

Inside the United States this has been made possible with a propaganda of fear for the horrible enemies like the Soviet Union, Communists and so on and a love for "free markets", "democracy", "freedom" and so on. Externally (and increasingly internally) this has caused massive poverty and suffering, genocide, war, coups, crushed unions and popular movements and environmental destruction.

This massive documentary does a stellar job of mapping the mass violence and hypocrisy of plutocracy and nation building. Make no mistake, the nation that is being discussed is the United States of America.

Major corporations: we are talking about YOU. Major corporations are controlling the government of the United States of America. This is not a mere conspiracy theory. Many of the top politicians in the country have gone on record -- as if it is nothing new, or offensive -- to talk about the close connections between campaign fundraising, policy, and politician. It is a problem on both sides of the political line.

Inside the United States this has been made possible with a propaganda of fear for the horrible enemies like the Soviet Union, Communists and so on and a love for "free markets", "democracy", "freedom" and so on.

"A gripping, deeply informative account of the plunder, hypocrisy, and mass violence of plutocracy and empire; insightful, historically grounded and highly relevant to the events of today." - Michael Parenti, Historian, Author The Face of Imperialism
