1. “West Florida Republic: The birth of US imperialism

Historian William Belko describes the Yankee imperialist gesture as the first seeds of Manifest Destiny – the 19th Century ideology under which the US government justified expanding American settlement across the North American continent.

3. “History is the Enemy as ‘Brilliant’ Psy-ops Become the News

How much longer must we subject ourselves to such an “invisible government”? This term for insidious propaganda, first used by Edward Bernays, the nephew of Sigmund Freud and inventor of modern public relations, has never been more apt. “False reality” requires historical amnesia, lying by omission and the transfer of significance to the insignificant. In this way, political systems promising security and social justice have been replaced by piracy, “austerity” and “perpetual war”: an extremism dedicated to the overthrow of democracy. Applied to an individual, this would identify a psychopath. Why do we accept it?”
