Jean Ziegler, in his recently published book 'Massive Destruction – the Geopolitics of Hunger', is denouncing the brutal arms the neoliberal masters of the world are using in order to annihilate resistance to their senseless attempt to run the world as they see fit.
Jean Ziegler is a tireless fighter for human rights and the right to food, stated in The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, as has been proven in his numerous earlier books on various subjects dealing with the extreme callousness of the Empire. His latest book is such an outspoken denunciation of the agroindustry in its various aspects that the huge land barons, the biofuel corporations and the GMO industry will certainly do everything in their power to keep this message from being spread worldwide. Professor Ziegler speaks out loud and clear in the United Nations and through his books and he is merciless in his denunciation of neoliberalism that breeds poverty worldwide. He has thus attracted numerous enemies, but also, most certainly, even more admirers. What is going on in the name of neoliberalism is nothing short of calculated murder, as the title of this book is clearly indicating.
