Democracy Now

You don;'t even have to download the show, you can just read the transcript of the interview. Chalmers Johnson raises the question "do you have to sacrifice democracy to maintain empire?"

AMY GOODMAN: Today, we spend the hour with the former CIA
consultant, distinguished scholar, best-selling author, Chalmers
Johnson. He's just published a new book. It's called Nemesis: The Last Days of the American Republic. It's the last volume in his trilogy, which began with Blowback, went onto The Sorrows of Empire.
In those two, Johnson argued American clandestine and military activity
has led to unintended but direct disaster here in the United States. In
his new book, Johnson argues that US military and economic overreach
may actually lead to the nation's collapse as a constitutional republic.
