Ep 65: US War and Its Future

Instead of covering the hots-pots of unrest, (Chile, Bolivia, Ecuador) I instead explore a source of the problem, namely, our empire. I first discuss the lighter topic of OK Boomer, then shift to a piece on war watching and civilian casualties, then a lack of human rights with Assange. In the Second half I talk about the big picture of climate chaos using the Pentagons own report. Finally a wrap up of how democrats and even progressives only offer soft opposition with the example of Israel. This is a heavier episode, but I share how I got to my views as well.
