The Orwellian Empire

Front Cover
News Junkie Post Press, Nov 2, 2015 - Corporate power - 280 pages
Gilbert Mercier's elegant book, "The Orwellian Empire, " has been well worth the wait. For years, Mercier has worked as a writer-journalist, well sought-out geopolitical analyst, and the founding editor-in-chief of "News Junkie Post" to bring his public the truth. Here he guides the reader in time and space, through his adopted home, the United States, turning over every stone in the unbalanced and crumbling world that this relatively young country has created around itself. From Afghanistan to Detroit, we are shown the ravages of the global corporate empire and its mechanisms, yet this is a hopeful book. Empires never last. The book's grounding in history, and its scholarly and impassioned observations, beckon the informed reader to dismantle the edifice, clear the rubble, and build a better world. Mercier's superb style make this generous offering of ideas riveting, from beginning to end. In time, "The Orwellian Empire" should figure among the books that endure and change readers.
