      need, for a profit.   This planet has more than enough resources for that, IMO.  But I am going to assume Prashad is in the cross-hairs of the capitalists and those who serve them.

        and to elaborate a little further.

        The ‘new world order’ needs philosophers/idea’s like Prashads to create a vision….a vision of which is our future and necessary to accomplish the formidable challenges humanity faces and challenges which can’t/won’t be answered by capitalism.  Having said that, credit is due to the Russians for their military’s doing the heavy lifting and starting the process to expose the vulnerabilities of and to break the back of the ‘rule’s based order system’.

          will bend the knee, abandon things like de-dollarization, go back to using SWIFT, basically let the West continue to control everything?  IMO, that dragon is out of the bag, and there is no putting it back.
