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

Zbigniew Brzezinski

 In 1969, Zbigniew Brzeziński wrote, “The 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.”

Our freedom and our Republic dies the death of a thousand cuts. This pronouncement by Brzezinski for-shadows the deepest cut of all. This authoritarian view repeats throughout history. The Royalists, during the American Revolution, held that only the absolute authority of King George and British rule could protect the colonies and their way of life. Subsequent to 1783, England continued her attempt to subvert our new nation. 

Democracies failed throughout history. Western nations succeeded to a degree with democratic institutions and freedom, but International Communism subverted or invaded country after country with totalitarian takeover. Back in the early times of Nazi Germany, US industrialists, Jo Kennedy, Charles Lindbergh and others believed that Germany’s organized emphasis on industrialization and production was superior to the chaos of America’s representative government and labor problems. Plato believed that Democracies ultimately evolved into Oligarchy. That sounds much-like, what Brzezinski proposed. 

Zbigniew Brzeziński, born in ;28, grew up in Berlin, '31-35 and Moscow, '36-38. the son of Tadeusz Brzeziński, a Polish diplomat posted to Germany, Russia and later Canada. When his father moved to Canada, 1938, Brzezinski earned his BS, 1949 from Loyola and Masters, 1950, from McGill in Montreal. His later PhD from Harvard, '53 and colligual relation with Kissinger set the stage for an academic career at Harvard, later Columbia, '53-'72. He served as council to LBJ, 1966-'68 and Jimmy Carter, '77-81. He organized the Trilateral Commission, '73, with Carter and Rockefeller. The creation of this unelected international banking and political entity created the very driving force for the resurgence of totalitarianism that Brzezinski spent a lifetime fighting against.
