Dr. Michael Parenti is an internationally-known award winning historian, author, and lecturer with a profound grasp of diverse topics including economics, the media, social and political issues. Parenti’s work explores the result of U.S. policies at home and abroad.

Dr. Parenti’s lecture “Empire vs. Veterans: Who Pays and Who Benefits from Global War,” will deal with the costs of empire paid by those who serve it and by the economy and society of America itself, and how the US empire does not serve the interests of the American people nor the people of other countries.

The show’s second guest will be with Anthony Whitaker, conference organizer and President of Veterans for Peace, Chapter 112, an organization whose mission is to raise public awareness of the true costs and consequences of militarism and war – and to seek peaceful, effective alternatives.
