Content Navigator: Book Excerpts, News, and Videos

My book is free and available in five different languages so far. I plan to translate it into many more languages. Note the following links were translated from older versions of the book. Once the final edit in English is complete, I will retranslate it:

Tools of Control in Portuguese

Tools of Control in French

Tools of Control in Zulu

Tools of Control in Afrikaans

Tools of Control in Spanish

Thanks for reading.

As the latest version of the book is too long to publish in one post, I am publishing excerpts individually and cataloging them here. Some excerpts were posted together, so links to multiple sections may be the same. All you need to do after you click the link is scroll down to the section you were looking for. All five subchapters of part one, for example, were published in one post. (This is not the full index.)


A Short Note to the Reader about the Origins of this book…………………………(3-6)

Part Three: The Birth of Modern Corporations, Banks, Growing Economic Inequality, and Their Effects on the Natural World

Part Five: The Selective Drug War, Incarceration, and Involuntary Hospitalization: Three More Means of Social and Economic Control
