The World’s Most Famous Economic Hitman Confesses – They’re Coming for Your Democracy

This article written by Andrew Krieger from Liberty Blitzkrieg quotes John Perkins the writer of Confessions of an Economic Hitman as saying that the economic hitmen are now coming for our democracies and he is right. Here in New Zealand they did not have to come for a visit. New Zealand voted their Economic Hitman, Wall street banker John Key in themselves!

Allen Dulles, the CIA director under presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy, the younger brother of Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, and the architect of a secretive national security apparatus that functioned as essentially an autonomous branch of government. Talbot offers a portrait of a black-and-white Cold War-era world full of spy games and nuclear brinkmanship, in which everyone is either a good guy or a bad guy. Dulles—who deceived American elected leaders and overthrew foreign ones, who backed ex-Nazis and thwarted left-leaning democrats—falls firmly in the latter camp. 

But what I was really trying to do was a biography on the American power elite from World War II up to the 60s. That was the key period when the national security state was constructed in this country, and where it begins to overshadow American democracy. It’s almost like Game of Thrones to me, where you have the dynastic struggles between these power groups within the American system for control of the country and the world…

Absolutely. The surveillance state that Snowden and others have exposed is very much a legacy of the Dulles past. I think Dulles would have been delighted by how technology and other developments have allowed the American security state to go much further than he went. He had to build a team of cutthroats and assassins on the ground to go around eliminating the people he wanted to eliminate, who he felt were in the way of American interests. He called them communists. We call them terrorists today. And of course the most controversial part of my book, I’m sure, will be the end, where I say there was blowback from that. Because that killing machine in some way was brought back home.

Most readers will be familiar with John Perkins and his best-selling novel Confessions of an Economic Hitman. What you may not know, is he’s currently making the rounds warning us that all the corporatist mercenary tactics employed against third-world nations to financially benefit U.S. conglomerates are now being turned inward on American communities.

He discussed some of this in a recent interview with Yes. Here are a few excerpts:

Twelve years ago, John Perkins published his book, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, and it rapidly rose up The New York Times’ best-seller list. In it, Perkins describes his career convincing heads of state to adopt economic policies that impoverished their countries and undermined democratic institutions. These policies helped to enrich tiny, local elite groups while padding the pockets of U.S.-based transnational corporations.

  1. The majority of Kiwi’s did not vote for John Key .
    The Crown NZ govt is not a constitutional govt in the first place.
    Key is just an effeminate bankster muppet .
    You do not have a democracy -just the illusion of one.
    How can an illusion be taken away.

    The global banking cabal (Crown+ Washington+ Vatican) is global .Washington has 5 eyes/spectre this is not ” America” kiwi/ UK/ Australian intel work for it …they appear to be vilifying the corporation of the usa -probably for war.
    The Crown’s global corporations control almost all resources globally.

    It is not one evil man that can be scapegoated for mass ignorance, voting, unquestioning obedience to govt and the mind conditioning.
