    “Haiti was not always aided. Between 1963 and 1972, for example, the country enjoyed an economic renaissance as it buzzed with the activities of small entrepreneurs. The Kennedy administration had cut off all aid to Haiti in 1963 so as to bring Francois Duvalier to heel…Haiti thrived with style and panache during this decade that merely continued its isolation as  the world’s first black republic. A community that was sustainable, tolerant, and harmonious with its gods had been forged, with none of the starkness associated with sustainability projects. Haiti brimmed with laughter, flavor, music and color. Things dear to the Haitian soul were valued: things that could not be bought. Anacaona‘s descendants lived there, and their life’s purpose was self-realization and the creation of art. That was the Haiti in which I grew up.” ~ Dr. Dady Chery

    By Catherine Austin Fitts

    In 2010, following a major earthquake, US and UN troops invaded and occupied Haiti. Although the devastation from the earthquake was great, the occupation and asset stripping by corporate and philanthropic interests were far worse.  Haiti may be the worst case yet of disaster capitalism. If recent allegations put forth by investigative reporters are true, the Clintons’ efforts to return to the White House are financed by Haitian lives. Based on Dr. Chery’s research, few of the billions raised by the Clintons for Haitian relief have helped the earthquake victims.

    Born and raised in Haiti and now living in the United States, Dr. Dady Chery has documented what has happened to Haiti since the 2010 earthquake in her remarkable book We Have Dared to be Free: Haiti’s Struggle Against Occupation. Dr. Chery’s efforts to document events in Haiti are a remarkable contribution to our understanding of the use of disasters to compromise national and individual sovereignty. Haiti is a prime example of organized crime creating social inequality and lowering global productivity.

    This week in Let’s Go to the Movies, I recommend the documentary Clinton Cash.  It is not yet available for streaming on line, so put it on your list to see when it becomes available.

    “Revolutionaries do not make revolutions. The revolutionaries are those who know when power is lying in the street and then they can pick it up.” ~Hannah Arendt

    By Catherine Austin Fitts

    This week on the Solari Report, Wayne Madsen of The Madsen Report joins me to discuss his new book Soros: Quantum of Chaos and “soft revolutions.” With years of experience working for the U.S. military-intelligence establishment, Wayne walks us through the strategic application of global philanthropic funding to advance both US and private interests. We discuss the application of “soft” power – continuing our discussion with Nafeez Ahmed on The CIA, NSA & Google  and with Charles Hugh Smith on Soft Weapons.

    Wayne reviews soft revolutions around the globe during the last decade — the Arab Spring, Ukraine, and Hong Kong — as well as the targeting of China and Russia, and domestic disturbances, including Ferguson, Missouri. He considers what we should expect in terms of the application of “soft power”  by the next US administration.

    In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review George Clooney and Julia Robert’s latest:  Money Monster. Clooney plays a “Kramer” character whose TV show is hijacked by a young man who has lost his life savings in a hedge fund manipulation. The story is a reminder that capitalism and organized crime differ significantly and that organized crime is, in fact, the primary contributor to inequality and falling productivity.

    There is a meaningful chance that at some point in the next few decades, intelligent machines that mankind is creating now, will kill us. That is the premise of James Barrat’s book Our Final Invention: Artificial Intelligence and the End of the Human Era. Barrat’s viewpoint, however sobering and concerning, is important, especially when considered amidst the cheerleading and optimism from Ray Kurzweil and the Transhumanist movement who gleefully proclaim an enlightened and beneficial merging of man and machine in the near future.

    To understand Barrat’s concerns, we must first understand the machine that is being built. We are all familiar, to some degree, with the concept of artificial intelligence (AI) and the types of programs that currently use it. AI is built into the microchip that controls the anti-locking brakes in our cars, so when we slam on the brakes on a wet road, the computer calculates all of the various variables to bring the car to a safe stop without skidding. AI is built into Google’s and Amazon’s search algorithms, so that when we search on a given term or review a product for sale, these sites give us highly refined search results and alternative product suggestions. And, AI is built into IBM’s Deep Blue computer which was built specifically to play chess and is so good that it has beat human chess champions on multiple occasions.

    These are the examples of AI that we commonly know of today. And they are benevolent examples. They make our lives easier, and they provide helpful suggestions which enable us to more quickly find information or products for which we are looking. Certainly, this AI is not a threat to us. But, AI is very rapidly evolving, and it is the future versions of what these tools will grow into that cause Barrat to lose sleep.
