CrossTalk: Global uprising

CrossTalk: Global uprising

All across the Middle East and beyond there are large scale protests and growing political instability. In many countries the old ways of doing business have only enriched privileged elites, while the prospects for the many are few and far in between. Do the elites have answers for today’s growing problems?
CrossTalking with James Jatras, Patrick Henningsen, and Joshua Landis.

  1. that`s one of the reasons they have the civil wars in middle east extreme inequality especially as it was the case of syria inequality was at extremes beyond comprehension and what`s worse the scum assad and his acolytes will continue as before

  2. I watch this entire program and I cannot understand the hypocrisy from all the speakers. During the entire cold war America squashed all left leaning government creations.

  3. Yet not one single one of them said maybe that’s why they are all on stable today. America wasn’t spreading democracy in the Middle East they were spreading capitalism. Which causes these massive income in equities. Oligarchs form from unfettered capitalism. Social policies socialist policies help the common man. There is no other purpose for those policies.

  4. Democracy is not selling to the rest of the world because we are failing because we lack balance. Not everyone can all live in gated communities with five cars. Without socialist policies you have no protections for your under classed, your children, your women, your minorities. Basic necessities and simple household services cannot be inflated to the levels they are today.

  5. I think sanctions are the BEST way to work out disagreements. What other options are there? War? If you can't work things out with talks, sanctions and war are the only cards you have. I suppose there is also the option of "folding" but we already know that the consequences of that are also casualties. So either American casualties or foreign casualties. I'm clear about what I would choose. MAGA!!

  6. The media lacks an understanding of capitalism, namely, because their business organization is capitalist, wholly or partly funded with private capital. As soon as the class question comes up they will cut away to a commercial break is a form of censorship. Movements will never be described by capitalist media organizations as to what they are i.e., working class struggles for dignity and independence from capitalist exploitation.

  7. today we dont see large scale warfare we see proxy warriors paid mercs..for people will not accept the level of causalities of WW1 and WW2 its called 4th generalization warfare. And like that do the elite think they can create a world wide Bolshevik state of control using the military..but that will not work for when soldiers are told to arrest their own friends and family they will then turn the guns on the elite who they hold no allegiance to…..

  8. Why my dear country Algeria is left out, when you talk about Lebanon, which is like as big as a medium city in Algéria.
    The biggest country in Africa, one of th richest, every Friday for the past 9 months Every week millions of peoples March down peacefully.
    Shame on you!!
