American foreign policy explained, refuted in “Good Will Hunting” 2-minute video

hyperlinks and video here:

Matt Damon grew-up as a neighbor of famed American historian, Howard Zinn, author of best-selling, A people’s history of the United States, that explains US history and foreign policy as a competition between American ideals and lust for oligarchic power. In the linked two-minute clip on the left, Damon’s character in Good Will Hunting nails and then buries the oligarch’s argument (adult language).

The only addition I have to Matt’s character’s argument: the increase in domestic oil prices (and others) is also a function of Wall Street “trades” designed to benefit traders and parasitize consumers.

The above link is my strongest series of academic papers to explain, document and prove unlawful US wars based on lies, and that our economy is managed as a rigged-casino. My citizen advocacy paper,Government by dicts, is fully documented and passionate in tone.

It's a great scene

but the NSA isn't involved mainly with code breaking anymore. They're fixated on data mining and graph theory (mapping social networks). Basically, NSA is the classified version of Google. The difference is the user base (spooks) and the data set (your thoughts).

The Dutch CIA, called the AIVD, once tried to recruit an informatics friend/classmate of mine for a data mining job during a job fair in Rotterdam. He gave him his card and told him to visit a website. My friend/classmate refused. I wasn't along for the fair in the first place. Of course, they need workers: the market for unabashed totalitarianism is booming. We are all suspects now. My friend refused, btw. Or so he told me.

See that above? That right there is likely to attract some pencil licking, data mining creep's attention. From my expertise I can only tell you this: by now, their capabilities extend beyond your darkest nightmares.

Oh and by the way: we wiretap our citizens more than Americans do. In 1999, we tapped 10000 phones, 3000 land lines and 7000 cell phones. The US, in the same year, tapped 1277 phones and the UK 1933.

Just to give you an idea of where the Netherlands stands. If you thought it was bad in the States....
