New World Disorder
Program #COCA008. Recorded in Santa Cruz, CA on April 20, 1991.Will President Bush's much-heralded New World Order usher in an era of peace and prosperity? Journalist and media critic Alexander Cockburn doesn't think so. He outlines the parameters and contours of what he calls the New World Disorder, in which the U.S. asserts its military power globally and simultaneously ignores its crumbling domestic infrastructure. Bush's vision is blurred by a nostalgia for an old order in which the U.S. reigned supreme in all areas. Now the U.S. is being challenged economically by a German-led Europe and a Japan-led Asia. It is only in military force where the U.S. is number one, thus creating the potential for disorder.
