So 9/11 is without any doubt in my mind, the worst disaster that ever befell the human race.
Scripps Howard: I wrote a piece today and I titled it "9/11, Day One'. "cause I really think that the outcome of 9/11 is that America has been damaged so badly"
Paul Craig Roberts: By itself.
It's been damaged by" you see 9/11, no matter whether you believe the Government's story, or the story of the independent experts who actually conducted the only investigation. Regardless of whose story to believe, it was used to launch a new ideology, the neo Conservative ideology, of American supremacy. Americans hegemony! You know they declare us to be the "indispensable people'. The "indispensable nation!' To me this all sounds like Hitler's Ayrans' priority, you know. "It had a right to prevail over other peoples!' Well now that's what Washington asserts.
And these neo Conservatives seem to be completely ensconced in all the power centers that rule the country. From the Government to the Council On foreign relations, to everything else. So I think we're" we have now the kind of ideology that destroys judgment and produces arrogance and hubris, and war.
So the use of 9/11 by the neo Conservatives probably dooms the world. And it's prevented Washington and the media from focusing only on any real problems. For example, for the last four years we have had the most aggressive and expansive monetary and fiscal policy in human history. The the lowest sustained interest rates, the largest sustained deficits.
And there's no recovery, and no economic recovery whatsoever. And then they try to hide the fact there's no recovery by the way they fiddle with unemployment releases and inflation releases, but the fact remains there's no jobs. The economy's dead in the water. And there doesn't appear to be any way consistent with established economic policy of getting the country back on its feet. But this is not part of the discussion.
Rob Kall: Now you have a new book out, that has come out already, and it has already been sold in other countries but not in the US.
And the working title is in Germany, for example, "Economies on the Abyss - the Failure of Globalism'.
