“Revolutionaries do not make revolutions. The revolutionaries are those who know when power is lying in the street and then they can pick it up.” ~Hannah Arendt

This week on the Solari Report, Wayne Madsen of The Madsen Report joins me to discuss his new book Soros: Quantum of Chaos and “soft revolutions.” With years of experience working for the U.S. military-intelligence establishment, Wayne walks us through the strategic application of global philanthropic funding to advance both US and private interests. We discuss the application of “soft” power – continuing our discussion with Nafeez Ahmed on The CIA, NSA & Google and with Charles Hugh Smith on Soft Weapons.
Wayne reviews soft revolutions around the globe during the last decade — the Arab Spring, Ukraine, and Hong Kong — as well as the targeting of China and Russia, and domestic disturbances, including Ferguson, Missouri. He considers what we should expect in terms of the application of “soft power” by the next US administration.
In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review George Clooney and Julia Robert’s latest: Money Monster. Clooney plays a “Kramer” character whose TV show is hijacked by a young man who has lost his life savings in a hedge fund manipulation. The story is a reminder that capitalism and organized crime differ significantly and that organized crime is, in fact, the primary contributor to inequality and falling productivity.
