the american empire is failing

This is a dialogue explaining America's dictatorship over the rest of the world and the damage it does. By America I mean Corporate establishment.This article is extremely important reading for those who are just "waking up." I think that wide dissemination of its contents would be very affecting. Although, the effects of empire are everywhere visible, it sometimes hard for the "average" (read: mainstream media reading public) person to truly synthesize what has been happening during their life times. Many are just too young to realize the rise of empire over the past four decades; and they certainly they have NO IDEA of how much the rationales used to continue empire has hurt so many people. Two billion people living on less than a dollar a day so that corporations can suck out resources in indigenous areas is OUTRAGEOUS.I believe that cetain parts of the book are deliberately "dumbed down" so that people will read the book. I understand exactly where this is coming from. Blogging away everyday on empire I have found I cannot speak the entire vocabulary I have. This article is something a person could print out and give to a friend who is getting intensely angry at torture, rendition flights, polluted water, the use of weapons of mass destruction, etc. but does not yet have a "framework" to diagnosis the actual illness that leads to this state of decayed moralityConvergence is no new concept. It's been floating around for about 20 years, put forward by the post-New Thought theologists. Until the rise of internet, it was pretty much thought to be a next to impossible thing to effect, save through prayer, etc, a total meshing of the world's progressive mind set on some etheric level. I haven't read the book but I will be most interested to see just what his SUGGESTIONS are as to how this will come about. I believe it IS happening, has always been happening and will continue.The only KNOWN antedote to greedy, selfish inhumane political social contexts is to THINK AHEAD, to base decisions on what will happen for the next seven generations in every single decision we make. It can't be read in a book nor can we think what we decide to do in any given day doesn't make a difference in how all the probabilities will play out. In this sense, a housewife who recycles everything is JUST AS EFFECTIVE a rEVOLUTIONARY as a Noam Chomsky or Howard Zinn ... Our entire idea of "what is a hero" must shift. The very concept of DIGG is a counter-measure to the the tanks and bullets phenomena!!As has often been quoted - the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it. This book is a part of that healing process. One man, one important life in a sea of meaningfulness ....
