Essential Dissent - Dismantling the US Empire’s Fake News

Dismantling the US Empire’s Fake News

Essential Dissent
Buy Essential Dissent a coffee ($3): https://ko-fi.com/essentialdissent Thomas Jefferson called the U.S. an “Empire of Liberty.” Barack Obama called the U.S. an “Indispensable nation.” These manifestations of American exceptionalism and American innocence provide the doctrine of U.S. empire building at home and abroad. Danny Haiphong and Roberto Sirvent’s new book, "American Exceptionalism and American Innocence - a People’s History of the United States from the Revolutionary War to the War on Terror" not only exposes this doctrine as myth but also analyzes its impact on the class struggle to develop a world free of U.S. capitalism, war, and white supremacy. Join anti-imperialist activists and journalists in a discussion about the book and its relevance as a tool toward dismantling the actually-existing fake news of U.S. Empire.
