Ike’s Warning and Selling Empire, War and Capitalism
In the first half of the program, Shahid Buttar discusses the chapter he wrote for Censored 2017, “Ike’s Dystopian Dream,” where he examines the many ways that President Eisenhower’s warning about the military-industrial complex has proven correct. For the second half of the program, Mickey and Peter survey some of the other chapters of Censored 2017, particularly Peter’s chapter, “Selling Empire, War and Capitalism,” a look at the advertising / public relations industry, and how its influence extends far beyond peddling consumer products.
