On this episode of We Rise, we explore the conditions in the United States that set the stage for perpetual war. Guest Jason S. Ridler Ramirez, Canadian-born left-wing military historian and professor, speaks about his experience in the field of military studies in Canada and the US, the history of the military industrial complex, and tangible strategies to truly challenge the MIC and US-made war.
Throughout the show you will hear excerpts from documentary films that reveal the ways US citizens have been taught to accept war as status quo. All films can be found for free online.
