  1. What any eye-opening interview. Thanks Media Roots! And KZYX. This interview gets deeper than other interviews I’ve seen with John Perkins. Even deeper than Democracy Now! dares to delve, where they seem to have sold out to the Democrat Party. They go soft on framing US imperialism and the two-party dictatorship. Thanks, Abby and Media Roots! And, now, Abby’s on RT’s Breaking the Set. Keep up the great work!
