'The most we can hope for I suppose is that every reporter might one day carry World Orders, Old and New around in his back pocket' Robert Fisk, Independent'Chomsky's work is neither theoretical, nor ideological: it is passionate and righteous. It has some of the qualities of Revelations, the Old Testament prophets and Blake' Ken Jowitt, TLSFor those who pursue justice and have an interest in the future of the planet World Orders, Old and New is compulsory reading' Catholic HeraldIn this widely acclaimed study of global politics, Chomsky offers a devastating critique of conventional definitions of the 'new world order'. It is, he argues, nothing more than an ingenious piece of 'historical engineering', whereby the pretexts for the Cold War - nuclear threat, Eastern Bloc menace - have been deftly replaced by a new set of convenient justifications for a Western agenda that remains largely unchanged.Now with a new and extensive epilogue on the Middle East, World Orders Old And New is as relevant now as when it was first published.

The end of the Cold War promises a new era of global peace in which domestic reform could be achieved. Yet armed conflict persists throughout the world. Economic inequality, declining public services, environmental degradation, and other forms of domestic decay threaten the quality of life in the U.S. In Peace Politics, Paul Joseph develops a systematic comparison of the "old" and "new" world orders that links foreign and domestic affairs. By examining the issues that are central to any realignment of American politics, he offers a sweeping account of the possibilities and obstacles for progressive change over the 1990s.Acknowledging that all nations and people have a right to security, he argues for a global attack against a broad range of shared threats, including human rights violations, nuclear devastation, poverty and despair, politically repressive governments, and environmental threats. Joseph also addresses the links between the militarism in the U.S. and deforestation of the Amazon, the uncertain victory of the Gulf War, the effect of public opinion on security issues, the impact of peace movements, nuclear weapons policy, and the need for a peace dividend.Linking war and peace issues with environmental renewal, stronger democracy, economic justice, and citizen activism, Peace Politics is a rallying cry for rationality, genuine security, and mutual survival. Author note: Paul Joseph is Associate Professor of Sociology and Chair of the Anthropology/Sociology Department and Peace and Justice Studies Program at Tufts University.

We all know, at least vaguely, the story about Napoleon Bonaparte. You know -- the one about the self-professed son of a republican revolution against monarchy, who then installed himself as a monarch. Napoleon was, we are told, an egomaniacal tyrant with "short man's inferiority complex" who tried to enslave the European continent. Led by the brave British, a coalition of "The Good Guys" banded together to thwart the ambitions of the great "usurper" and trouble-maker of Europe. There is just one problem with this official narrative of the giant historical figure of the 1800's. To put it gently - it's a damn lie. (surprise - surprise). Now, one can easily understand the reason for the propagation of lies and slanders aimed at Napoleon being perpetuated by the entrenched monarchies of Europe at the time. Quite simply, Napoleon's philosophical vision of good governance (which we will explore later on) posed a direct threat to their 'Old World Order' of running things. Oddly enough, long after the old monarchies have either gone extinct or been neutered, the name of Napoleon Bonaparte still carries a negative, though diminished, stink to it. This seems very strange - that is until we realize that the forces behind the 'New World Order', which were already in operation at the time, had just as much reason to oppose Napoleon as the old Royal Houses of Europe, such as the International Bourbon Family, did. You see, Napoleon, like the early Illuminati / Jacobin Reds may have opposed the Vatican-affiliated French Monarchy, but unlike the controlled agents of the Rothschild New World Order gang, Napoleon was not an anti-Church atheistic Jacobin per-Communist by any means - not even close! Indeed, had Napoleon been able to withstand the numerous coalitions arrayed against him, both the 'Old World Order' and the "New World Order' would have been put "out of business" a long time ago. And that is why this illustrated historical summary is titled: 'Napoleon vs the Old and New World Orders'. Enjoy the show.

„Die Frage, wer die Welt regiert, kann nicht eindeutig beantwortet werden. Aber die einflussreichsten Akteure sind klar auszumachen.“ Auch nach der Ära Obama gilt: Die USA betrachten sich grundsätzlich als die Guten – selbst dann, wenn sie das Gleiche tun wie jene, denen sie Böses unterstellen: Zivilflugzeuge abschießen, willkürlich Leute inhaftieren und mit Drohnen umbringen oder in fremde Länder einmarschieren. Das Primat der militärischen Intervention und der unerbittliche Drang, alleinige Weltmacht zu bleiben, bilden die Konstanten der amerikanischen Politik – auch wenn dadurch Staaten ins Chaos und Menschen ins Verderben getrieben werden. Im Land dagegen haben die Reichen und Mächtigen fast freie Hand, jenseits demokratischer Kontrollen und unbeachtet von einer zunehmend gleichgültigen Bevölkerung. Wohin führt uns das? Welche Folgen hat das für den Rest der Welt? In seiner so brillanten wie präzisen Analyse zeigt Noam Chomsky die fatalen Folgen der imperialen Politik der USA für das ohnehin immer chaotischere Zusammenleben auf unserem Planeten.

"Politicians in Washington are grappling with a soaring national debt that threatens our status in the world and, indeed our very future. The government funded by this debt is seen as too big and intrusive... But the way forward will never be found until we understand how our nation fits within a higher purpose for all men and women. The Four Institutions of the Cultural Mandate provide this understanding and clarifies what the American people must do to secure our country's future."-- P. [4] of cover.
