The prolific Matthew Ehret has just published a book, The Clash of Two Americas v.1 (with Cynthia Chung), and a lengthy article, “How China’s Gorbachev Was Flushed in 1989.” Check out all of Matt’s books HERE.

In the book, Ehret identifies his two Americans with two long-standing schools of thought: “The idea of a society founded upon the cultivation of the love of higher pleasures of the spirit rather than the feeding of the lower pleasures of the fleshly passions…” Ehret and Chung see the same philosophical clash playing out in the Revolutionary and Civil War eras and leading up to the populist vs. international banker clashes of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

How China’s Gorbachev Was Flushed in 1989” recounts the cautionary tale of Soros’s man in Peking, Zhao Ziyang, who cozied up to Malthusians and transhumanists but was definitively defeated after the failed color revolution at Tiananmen Square.

  1. MLK was a lowlife punk, and he supported the Zionist genocide of Palestinians because Jews controlled him.

    Benjamin Franklin was an imperialist and also a traitor. He courted the French Empire to fight the Motherland of Britain.

    I generally find Mr. Ehret interesting, and the basic premise jives with William Enghdahl’s analysis of Tiananmen square(“Manifest Destiny”). I think he sometimes strains credulity though by trying to make absolute heroes or absolute villains out of historic figures(“Good” Lincoln, “Bad” Andrew Jackson, etc.) I tend to prefer Michael Hudson or F. William Engdahl’s articles and books, but It’s not like I don’t get anything out of Mr. Ehret’s work

    My fed sense goes off when I hear Ehret.
