Capitalism and the American Empire Explained

“[The United States] have created an empire based on trade and commerce in which pretty well every country attempts to trade to some degree or another with the United States of America, regardless of their ideology.

For example, you’ll find Nike shoes in socialistic, communistic countries, and you’ll even find them in North Korea that prides itself on being an isolated country.

Why?

Because the products that the US offers follows the psychology of need that the rest of the world has been convinced exists.

In other words — ‘we are a country that is producing this massive amount of products and services, and you, the rest of the world, need to use this.’

And so what they do is combine their trade and commerce abilities and perspectives and tied it to the political system in which they interact with other countries.

For example, as part of NATO and as part of the whole perspective of protecting Europe from the aggression of Russia, they have tied trade and commerce with Europe as a consequence with their ability to protect Europe through NATO.

Now, Donald Trump in his recent [comments of the] last few years has pulled away from NATO in effect saying that we have the trade and commerce, there’s nothing else we can get, so why are we supporting ensuring this trade and commerce through the positioning of our troops and forces against Russia when really Russia is not that big of a threat anymore.

It’s a very short sighted perspective but that’s the perspective he’s using.

In other words, trade and commerce will continue regardless. Unfortunately, that’s not the case because if Russia were to overtake Europe and all their countries what would happen is the trade and commerce would immediately stop and as a result of that the United States would find itself in a recession. Deep recession.

So what would they do? They would react by sending in troops to fight and battle Russia. And that’s how wars begin.”
