I had some knowledge of the subject of the interview on linked below but listening to the author spurred my interest to know more, so I looked him up. Turns out the author, Steven Kinzer, wrote another book I read in the past and also highly recommend called "The True Flag".  I ordered  "The Brothers: John Foster Dulles, Allen Dulles, and Their Secret World War" [Free on "Audible"] which makes a convincing case that two individuals, brothers, had sway over pivotal points in American history and why the author believes  the CIA’s organizational structure has lead, and continues to lead, to U.S. interventionism around the world. I think anyone interested in U.S. foreign policy and who believes that our history has anything to do with our present, might find this to be both interesting and informative.

But do not steer me to black holes expecting me to see the sucked-up truth

Copied and edited  from somewhere forgotten: So many people hate and distrust alternate news sites because they give airtime to journalists, experts, and perspectives that are filtered out on their behalf by capital’s preferred propaganda networks, which keeps them comfortable in their dangerous ignorance. 

I stole this too:

Even in our sleep, pain which cannot forget
