Carl Herman is what I would call a "persistent educator" ... not only in the world of alternative media, but he also teaches professionally at the high-school level. I first heard him on Jim Fetzer's podcast series, and was struck by his clear-spokenness and patience, as well as his intelligence. I invited him to discuss with me the real story of Mexico and the details of the United States' theft of almost half its land in the 1800s, in violation of the sacrosanct Adams-Onis treaty. We move on from this into rogue empire and intentions on the part of oligarchs; Carl gets into some viable solutions. Visit his website at WashingtonsBlog.com; his article on the Adams-Onis treaty is here, and his acclaimed "Seizing an Alternative" article is here.
