Sean Stone, co-host of “Watching the Hawks”, debuts his new documentary, “A Century of War”, giving an historical perspective on the shift to a post-industrial society and offering strategies to reinvigorate US infrastructure, starting with a reassessment of America’s relationship to energy. In A Century of War, Stone links America’s petrodollar economy with its global military predominance, often to secure corporate access to natural resources. “We’ve seen America fulfill its mission as the ‘city upon the hill’ but at the expense of the homeland. Physical infrastructure is decaying, and the population is being weighed down by debt,” said Stone. In his quest to give context to America’s transformation away from a society committed to raising standards of living through industry, Stone interviews self-professed ‘economic hitman’ John Perkins, former Wall Street insiders Nomi Prins and Catherine Austin Fitts, former Senator Mike Gravel, former Microsoft insider Ramez Naam, and SRI Energy Director Michael McKubre to make A Century of War, inspired by the book by William Engdahl.
