This book should be required reading for anyone in HS and older. Learn how our country is screwing over the world. Raping their natural resources for our own gains ... (esp the oil companies) Destroying the rain forests; ending the growth of plants that could eventually save our lives, just so US Corps can make more and more profit. Not only that, we force these countries to borrow money that they will never be able to pay back at the interest rates we charge them, so they will be beholden to us eternally (or whenever this planet dies ... whichever comes first)
WARNING: This story will make you sad and nauseous ... but should be read to inspire us to become more proactive in our politics here.
