Below is Laura Nader’s speech (2009 at Seattle University) on the rule of law, and when it is used for plunder. She discussed Iraq, roads and the Zapotec, corporatization, democracy, and all sorts of injustice in which the rule of law is actually used to plunder powerless societies. She also notes that all powerful nations runs end. We need to pay attention.
The first 38 minutes comprises the speech. The last 18 minutes consists of question/answer. It will enwrap you. You’ll learn a lot about society, controlling processes, etc. You can leave it on and listen as a radio since it’s a lecture.
Don’t be complicit. Speak up. Be yourself.
