Professor of Globalization Studies at the University of Lethbridge, Anthony J. Hall is our special guest in this installment. Professor Hall has just completed the second book in his 'Bowl With One Spoon' duology called, "Earth Into Property: Colonization, Decolonization and Capitalism". In this interview, Jack and Tony attempt to cover as much topical ground as possible starting from the 1763 Royal Proclamation to the present. It is a tale of repression, colonization, greed and Empire. It is the story of the usurpation, commodification and transmogrification of the free and natural world into exorbitant profits for an elite few -- and indentured servitude for the rest of us.
Mostly, it is the ineffable, muted and catastrophic story of the genocide of the indigenous peoples of the entire world.
