When I am commenting on the state of the US I have had a few readers that say that the empire built on war is on the downhill slide…..that the US has been empire building since the end of WW2…..
After almost 30 years in the CIA, Ray McGovern became a truth-teller. He sits down with Salon for a long debriefing
What a lost pleasure it is in our indispensable nation to be in the presence of someone who thinks, acts and speaks out of conscience and conviction. Even better, these were precisely McGovern’s topics that day three years back: The necessity of careful thought, of honoring one’s inner voice, of acting out of an idea of what is right without regard to success or failure, the win-or-lose of life. One way or another, these themes run through everything he has to say, I have since discovered. At an inner-city church in Washington, McGovern teaches a course he calls “The Morality of Whistleblowing.”
By sticking to the old school techniques from 50 years ago has made it possible for this state to die a slow death……new plans and new thinking is sadly needed or this prediction will arrive sooner than later…..
