Micheal Parenti on Democracy Now!

AT political theorist & author Michael Parenti spoke with Amy Goodman on this morning's Democracy Now. He dissects the bailout, health coverage, and capitalism in general. Here's a sample:

"Well, I argue that one of the functions of a capitalist state is to defend capitalism from itself, to defend capitalism from the capitalists. It was Marx—dare we mention him? I hear he’s coming back in style. It was Marx who said one capitalist will kill many other capitalists, that the system begins to consume itself. We see that with Bernard Madoff and the like."

Check out the fascinating books & dvds we carry from Parenti, including the awesome "Rulers of the Planet" dvd from 2005!
