Hello RMG Fam. Today is #IndependentMediaMonday and our guest is a RMG favorite, Gilbert Mercier, Co-Founder/Co-Editor of News Junkie Post. Gilbert is the author of The Orwellian Empire and has written many compelling pieces over the years.
Today's discussion was centered around two of his most recent essays: New Orleans a Decade after Katrina: ‘Waiting for Godot’ Courtesy of Disaster Capitalism and Mercier and Draitser Discuss Disaster Capitalism in Post Katrina New Orleans. Mercier outlines and details the aims of disaster & vulture capitalism post-Katrina and how the oligarchs have merged climate change with their nefarious takeovers of capital and assets.
This was a thought-provoking and intellectual stimulating time, so please listen in.
