    This is a tasty morsel from "The Memory Hole" channel. As one should always be aware, what are the Sidney Gottliebs and Ewan Cameron's of today up to, and how far have they advanced with modern day technology to play with? It's a Trojan horse mind fuck in itself that these type of Projects are all relics of the past. Beeee - Essss

    State forces or Right-wing paramilitaries: My vote is in.

    wikipedia:
    Career
    Bevins was born and raised in California and attended Servite High School and the University of California, Berkeley. While at UC, Berkeley, Bevins was a successful Collegiate water polo player, competing in the 2002 NCAA Men's Water Polo Championship with the California Golden Bears team that finished in the Final, losing to Stanford 7–6.[3]

    Bevins worked in Berlin before covering Hugo Chávez in Venezuela with The Daily Journal. He earned a master's degree in international political economy from the London School of Economics.[4][5]

    In 2012, after an investigation Bevins published on modern-day slavery in the Amazon rainforest, pig iron companies in the state of Maranhão agreed not to source their charcoal produced using slave labor, forest destruction, or invasions into indigenous lands.[6]

    In 2016, President Dilma Rousseff declared in an interview with Bevins she did not believe that the US or CIA was behind her impeachment. Suspicion of US backing was common at the time among her left-wing supporters, who like Rousseff considered the impeachment a "coup."[7]

    From 2012 to 2016, Bevins ran the "From Brazil" section of the online version of Folha de S.Paulo, Brazil's largest general newspaper, which published news and analysis from Bevins and other major correspondents in Brazil. He and this group of journalists were at the center of reporting the wave of protests beginning in June 2013 continuing until the 2014 World Cup.[8]

    Bevins sometimes writes for and appears in Brazilian media, speaking fluent Portuguese, and has also worked in Spanish and German.[9]

    In his 2020 book, The Jakarta Method, Bevins used recently declassified documents, archival search, and eyewitnesses reports to argue that the victory of the United States in the Cold War within the Third World was in part based on the extermination of unarmed leftists in the countries where the US involvement had happened, both by state forces, or by right-wing paramilitaries.[10] The book title refers to the Indonesian mass killings of 1965–66 by the Suharto regime.

    That was interesting, I didn't know hardly any of that. The horrific history they covered dovetails nicely with how this world order has conducted its affairs for a very long time.

    Right up to present day as a matter of fact.

    That really touched me what Abby brought up at the very end, wondering what kind of world could have evolved into by now had other paths been taken, especially those of the long suffering Global South. Things are changing now, rapidly, just that will king of the mountain drop the final curtain for everyone in the process of being dethroned...
