Retired physician and air taxi operator, science writer and part time assistant professor, these editorials cover a wide range of topics. Mostly non political, mostly true, I write more from a lifetime of experience and from research, more science than convention. Subjects cover medicine, Alaska aviation, economics, technology and an occasional book review. Globalization or Democracy documents the historical roots of Oligarchy, the road to colonialism and tyranny

         In 1969 Zbigniew Brzezinski wrote, “. . . nation state as a fundamental unit of man’s organized life has ceased to be the principal creative force. International banks and multinational corporations are acting and planning in terms that are far in advance of the political concepts of the nation state.”

         Brzezinski played a major role in US foreign policy. He was born in Poland but grew up in Russia. His father was a Polish ambassador to Russia. Later a diplomat to Canada where Zbigniew received his BS and learned American history and English from a Canadian viewpoint. Brzezinski was a contemporary of Kissinger at Harvard. Following the demoralization from the war in Vietnam, one could in-vision a progressive philosophy of internationalism. They promoted globalism through education with an unfortunate disregard for our American Revolution and our messy but fundamental commitment to representative government. 

         Globalization or Democracy traces the way in which this forgotten pronouncement of Brzezinski in 1969 reveled a willingness to abandon our Constitutional Republic for a vague international governance by bankers and techno aristocrats. These elites had little regard for the lost wealth of the American people or the security of our country However, they were happy to cite the growth in investment capital from the spoils of deficit trade.
