Welcome to GR, etc. And welcome to our last show of 2019. Hard to believe time has flown so quickly, etc. Today, an interview I recorded over the weekend with Andre Vltchek. Andre’s been on the show a number of times over the years, but no matter how many times I’ve introduced him – listing his many accomplishments as a writer of plays, poetry, novels, documentary film scripts, or his many, many articles on the conditions for the poorest of the poor – I never feel I’ve credited enough this remarkable and intrepid witness to the state of the World and his times.
Andre’s many book titles include: ‘China Belt and Road Initiative: Connecting Countries, Saving Millions of Lives’. ‘Revolutionary Optimism, Western Nihilism’, ‘The Great October Socialist Revolution’, ‘Fighting Against Western Imperialism’, and, with Noam Chomsky, ‘On Western Terrorism: From Hiroshima to Drone Warfare’.
Andre is Hong Kong now, working on his latest book, a compendium of these tumultuous last few years of political unrest from Europe and West Asia, to the Americas and Far East.
