The information provided by RAND in this podcast is for public viewing. Not once did the reviewer before me show any examples of RAND's ill willed nature toward humanity in fact. Which is all to common when ill informed people spout hysteria on things they know nothing of. If you believe your history professors, then go by his review. If you have a mind of your own, then watch and listen. It's the only way to learn.

Rand Corp and the US Empire

By Bloody Williams - Nov 29 2010
Read more
All Americans should inform themselves about the Rand Corporation, and its part in the creation of the secretive, militarized police state we live in today. Much of their public material, like this podcast, comes off as bland policy documents and an exercize in academic thinking. Founded shortly after WWII, the corporations mission is much more subversive, and advocates for eternal war and the creation of enemies to justify a permanant war economy for the benefit of the military-industrial complex, which President Eisenhower warned us about in his farewell address. Read Alex Abella's Soldiers of Reason: The Rand Corporation and the American Empire. What he found is what is publically available. What exists in their secret plans? These people are about control and domination, for the benefit of a few.
