The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. We must all do more to help stop this western corporate arrogance that puts the future generations lives in despair. @BruceKGagnon

Meeting with Russian filmmakers last night


I met with the two men who made this film last night, Konstantin Semin and Nikolay Diakov, for dinner here in Moscow. After we ate they took me to a huge building that used to be the headquarters of the Pravda publishing operation during the former Soviet Union.  Now rooms in the building are rented out for various purposes.

In our case a film studio waited for us. As we entered the room four young men were preparing to film an interview with me.  The hour-long interview was done by Konstantin and Nikolay will work on the translation and editing.  You can see their YouTube channel here.

Three years ago Nikolay came to Bath, Maine and interviewed me and then also got two other Global Network members into their film about US 'missile defense' - Karl Grossman (New York) and Wolfgang Schlupp-Hauck (Germany).

Besides making films together Nikolay and Konstantin are also in a rock band that does political music.  I will be eager to get some of their videos to use in my Sunday song.

It was a real pleasure to spend time with these two thoughtful and kind men and I look forward to working with them again in the future.
