It’s hard to ignore the power of military-industrial complex in the United States: our government spends more than HALF of the national budget on the military, awarding trillions of dollars in military contracts to private corporations which then spend hundreds of billions lobbying Congress to increase that military spending. The connections between corporate oligarchy and the US military are rarely explored within “mainstream” Corporate-Owned News, which will often defend the American war economy with nationalist propaganda while coordinating attacks against anyone who would expose or criticize the dangerous relationship between corporate power and the military.

“Made Love, Got War” is how journalist, author, media critic, and activist Norman Solomon describes the military-industrial complex in his book by the same name. Solomon’s lifetime in journalism and anti-war activism have combined to provide his readers with accurate and responsible reporting and analysis. Don’t miss the conclusion of our enlightening discussion about the future of democracy and the fates of whistleblowers and anti-war advocates with one of the country’s foremost independent journalists and experienced activists.
