Who Rules America? Power, Politics, & Social Change

William Domhoff Welcome to WhoRulesAmerica.net, a site about how power is distributed and wielded in the United States. It both builds upon and greatly supplements the book Who Rules America? , now in its 7th edition. The book's new subtitle, "The Triumph of the Corporate Rich," reflects the success of the wealthy few in defeating all of their rivals (e.g., organized labor, liberals, environmentalists) over the course of the past 35 years. Among the many things you'll find here: supplementary information and updates for readers of WRA; an overview of the American power structure at the national level and an in-depth look at power at the local level; a look at the wealth and income distribution in the U.S.; and an overview of the Four Networks theory of power, which provides the best general theory of power and social change within which to situate the class-domination theory we've developed specifically for the United States.

Barack Obama: The Least Transparent President in History

" By Amy Goodman, The Spokesman-Review 29 March 14 y Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government.” So wrote President Barack Obama, back on Jan. 29, 2009, just days into his presidency. As the news industry observed its annual “Sunshine Week” in mid-March, the Associated Press reported that “[m]ore often than ever, the administration censored government files or outright denied access to them last year under the U.S.

Why Is It Necessary For The Federal Government To Turn The United States Into A Prison Camp? There has been no society in the history of the world that has ever been 100% safe. No matter how much money the federal government spends on "homeland security", the truth is that bad things will still happen. Our world is a very dangerous place and it is becoming increasingly unstable. The federal government could turn the entire country into one giant prison camp, but that would still not keep us safe. It is inevitable that bad stuff will happen in life. U.S. Should Not Meddle in Ukraine. Ukraine is a dangerous situation because the U.S., at least verbally, is threatening Russia and because Putin and Obama, at least in public, analyze, understand and see the situation there in very different ways.

U.S. Should Not Meddle in Ukraine

We do not know what was said when Obama and Putin recently conversed at length by telephone. The U.S. and E.U. have embraced the revolution, while Russia does not see that riots are part of a democratic process. A key problem in Ukraine is that there is a strong right-wing, ultra-nationalist and neo-Nazi type party and other similar groups that have played a key role in generating the violence that brought down the government and breaking an agreement reached in late February. Putin’s rationale for a Russian presence in Ukraine includes reference to this destabilizing and violent element.

The slide towards American theocracy was nudged one more step forward by today's Supreme Court decision in support of the "freedom" of corporations with "religious" beliefs to restrict the rights of their employees.

What if a Muslim Company Used the 'Hobby Lobby' Decision to Impose Its Values on White Christians?

In essence, religious "beliefs" trump the obligations, rights, and responsibilities that come with being members of the polity and a broader political community. Le grand échiquier, l'Amérique et le reste du monde, de Zbigniew Brzezinski. Paru en 1997, ce livre a très peu vieilli et se lit avec le plus grand intérêt.

Le grand échiquier, l'Amérique et le reste du monde, de Zbigniew Brzezinski

Brzezinski a été conseiller de Carter pour les relations internationales et définit, dans ce livre synthétique, ce que doit être la politique américaine sur l'échiquier mondial. Dans son inspiration, on retrouve un idéalisme très américain : les USA ont pour mission d'assurer la paix mondiale. Toutes ces puissances émergentes se trouvent, selon l'auteur, sur le « continent eurasien ». Cet espace géographique comprend tout les territoires compris entre Lisbonne et Tokyo, en passant par Berlin, Moscou, Tashkent, Pékin, New Dehli. C'est là que se jouent l'avenir du monde et la primauté des USA. Les relations et intérêts des USA sont donc passés en revue dans chacune de ces zones. C'est extrêmement éclairant, car Brzezinski décrit très directement les intérêts américains, sans les déguiser – même s'il passe sous silence les moyens employés à leur service. Le programme américain est donc le suivant :
