    Michael Rectenwald: Google Archipelago & Great Reset as One-World Monopoly of Government

    Michael Rectenwald: Google Archipelago & Great Reset as One-World Monopoly of Government

    Dr. Michael Rectenwald discusses how Woke Capitalism and the Digital Gulag or Google Archipelago are coalescing into "corporate-socialism" or what he calls Google Marxism. Its aim is a "one-world monopoly of government" whose expression is most clearly seen today in what is known as "The Great Reset." China's technocracy is the model for the whole world and Vaccine Passports are how the "Social Credit Score" system will be rolled out in the West, which is currently underway. Businesses and corporations will also have a Social Credit Score known as the ESG metric, which will evaluate whether companies are adhering to the "Green Agenda" and add numerous regulations and taxes, which ultimately will favor the global monopolies and serve to bankrupt smaller enterprises. Dr. Rectenwald warns us not to give up and to create networks of resistance, islands of freedom, and to develop economic means of independence.

    Glenn Diesen: Great Power Politics & Tech Sovereignty in the Great Reset

    Glenn Diesen: Great Power Politics & Tech Sovereignty in the Great Reset

    Glenn Diesen discusses the historic crossroads world powers once again find themselves at in the midst of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, which will determine which countries and regions will fall behind and which ones will leapfrog and dominate. He examines this struggle through the prism of geoeconomics, the splinternet, censorship, and how all countries are now racing to develop their own technological sovereignty in all spheres (e.g. internet, smartphones, social media, software, hardware, operating systems). He fears the trend (e.g. social credit system, Covid passports) suggests we are moving away from democracy and more toward political authoritarianism or fascism. He looks at the trend toward global governance and regionalism as Europe decides whether it will stay with Atlanticism or move closer to Greater Eurasia.

    Dan Kovalik: We Need to Cancel "Cancel Culture" & Speak Freely!

    Dan Kovalik: We Need to Cancel "Cancel Culture" & Speak Freely!

    Author, lawyer, and professor Dan Kovalik makes the case for CANCELING "Cancel Culture", from the left progressive perspective, because it's more important than ever to be able to speak freely. He uses examples of how people were unfairly attacked for questioning the lockdowns, which ended up transferring wealth to the 1% and impoverishing the Middle Class. He looks at the blindspots of people on both the right (e.g. QAnon) and the left (e.g. RussiaGate), how political parties have developed a religious nature to them requiring myths to hold their faiths together, and how postmodernism and the internet have contributed to a world where people no longer live in reality. He surprisingly finds conservatives to be more open-minded than liberals. He discusses his experience with BLM and how it is a departure from the historical civil rights movement. He discusses how the "Woke" movement has become very close with the CIA, Big Tech, and Wall Street. He advocates people being brave and speaking up in the face of Cancel Culture and Wokeism.

    Todd Miller: U.S. Empire & the Global Border-Industrial-Complex

    Todd Miller: U.S. Empire & the Global Border-Industrial-Complex

    Author Todd Miller sheds light on the Border-Security-Complex and how it relates to U.S. Empire. He reveals how the industry is in reality bipartisan in spite of how the media makes it out to be (e.g. Trump's border wall) and that the same border policies have been going on under both the Democrat and Republican parties. He discusses how America's borders are fortifying and extending globally and how different "border sets" from around the world are scaffolding and coming together to form a global border security state which allows transnational corporations and the wealthy to seamlessly traverse borders while keeping the poor locked down in a caste system, waging what is known as a "securocratic war". He touches on the economic policies and environmental problems exacerbating migration and diluting the sovereignty of foreign countries such as Mexico, and looks toward some solutions.

    Richard Poe: Globalism Rooted in British Liberal Imperialism, Not American Empire

    Richard Poe: Globalism Rooted in British Liberal Imperialism, Not American Empire

    NYT best-selling author Richard Poe discuses his upcoming book on the history of globalism and why its birth is not with the America Empire as so often is portrayed, but rather emanates from the British Empire which continues operating from behind the scenes. He points out the odd fact that Pax Britannica won two world wars and then just mysteriously disappeared. Britain still maintains its liberal imperial or globalist empire via its commercial and financial hegemonic system, it simply switched its subjects from formal to informal dependencies. It lets the American Empire do the heavy lifting through costly military machinery and waging of war. He also gives his thoughts on The Great Reset which seems to be the next phase of globalism, an aristocratic agenda that seeks to bring us back to the Middle Ages.

Outstanding Podcast

This is an excellent podcast that combines geopolitics, economics and history. The host is well-informed and frequently has high-profile guests. Most importantly, Geopolitics and Empire offers a take on events that parts ways with the mainstream Narrative, making it invaluable. Highly recommended.

weird train wreck of a show

I started listening because of Johan Galtung interview and stuck around for the bizarreness to come. this is one of those programs that takes valid points from solid Marxist and even Libertarian anti-imperialist positions and takes it to moronic places....anti-vax, anti-semitic, pro-qanon and not in a smart or funny way. just had a program arguing that Ford Foundation is paying CIA to work with BLM to coup Trump. The best comparison for this awful show is that it is a stupider version of the already idiotic RT show “Eat the Press”.

One of my favorites don’t listen to the 1 stars

This show and “this week in geopolitics” are my favorite shows. I think that the reason for all the 1 stars is because it is a unbiased show that dosnt say what the listeners want, it says the truth. Nothing but the truth, and little bit of conspiracy from the both the left and right. But it seems very honest and I hope it to continue, but I can’t support from patreon.
