Join us for a friendly discussion of “The Democratic Fraud and the Universalist Alternative” in the October, 2011, Monthly Review, by Samir Amin. He is an Egyptian economist living in Dakar, Senegal. Our conversation will cover the limitations of "electoral democracy" and five growing and destructive monopolies: technology, supported by military expenditures of the dominant nations; control over global finances and a strong position in the hierarchy of current account balances; access to natural resources; international communication and the media, and; military means of mass destruction. Seth Sandronsky will lead the discussion. Read the article at http://monthlyreview.org/2011/10/01/the-democratic-fraud-and-the-universalist-alternative
