Giroux is the McMaster University professor for Scholarship in the Public Interest.”

The USA is a prison state…That is exactly what it is….Essentially, that is all it is.

…It is absolutely not a free country…The people here, are not free.

Vast many “Americans” are enslaved…abused…and impoverished by the USA.

It is time for a radically new path forward…It is time for those who commit predation upon us, to fall.
