  • Thanks for posting this. I live in the same town Parenti (Berkeley) and wasn’t aware of him. (In retrospect I recognize some of his work from our dying free press outlet, the Berkeley Daily Planet where he’s been published a bit.)

  • Here is Parenti from Oct 2012 on the Nobel Peace Prize going to the EU:

    The Nobel Peace Prize for War by Michael Parenti, Berkeley Daily Planet.

    In October 2012, in all apparent seriousness, the Norwegian Nobel Committee(appointed by the Norwegian Parliament) bestowed the Nobel Peace Prize upon the European Union (EU). Let me say that again: the European Union with its 28 member states and 500 million inhabitants was awarded for having “contributed to the advancement of peace and reconciliation, democracy, and human rights in Europe.”(Norway itself is not a member of the EU. The Norwegians had the good sense to vote against joining.)
