Hegemony From The Heavens - The military industrial complexes plans for Full Spectrum Dominance
Report Abuse/Infringement 0 Seeds 0 Leechers1.86 MB
This is a book I wrote about the militarisation of space and US Full Spectrum Dominace of the globe. It was written before Obama became president but the democrats being in power has not altered any of the plans for F.S.D by very much. As many of us have seen, the depression is not affecting the military industrial complex much at all.
Anyhoo, I hope you like my work, it took a year to put together this small book.
Your feedback, positive and/or negative on this work will be very much appreciated.

Well I admire the effort in putting together an original piece of thought and sharing it here.
That being said, surely you realize that the goal of putting weapons in space is common knowledge and more a matter for historians? They had press conferences about it in the 80s, popularizing it in step with the popular fiction of the day so people could understand it, star wars.
I think your paper left out a couple key considerations people on this site would be most interested in discussing.
First: Lasers and nukes in space, the question is why bother? The answer is to defend property rights. As Mr. Galbraith noted in his series "the age of uncertainty" revolutions are bloody because those with privilege tend to go to bloody and irrational lengths to defend it. There are literally nuclear weapons and lasers pointing down at you from space to prevent you from taking away privilege from the ruling class. This was particularly clear when the programs started to defend against "communism" -- that insidious ideology of equity.
Second: Since they've got the nukes in space already, who cares? Isn't the subject of the militarization of media and the human unconscious more relevant than the militarization of space?

The property rights issue is something I had not thought about, although I feel that in retrospect the full spectrum dominance project is pretty much just that. An attempt at total control over property. So thanks for making that clearer for me.
Secondly, they do not have nukes in space already. there are no satellites in orbit at this time armed with nuclear weapons. As for who cares? Well, i do and so do millions of others from what i found in my research, groups like space4peace for example and CND, not to mention Chomsky himself in Hegemony or Survival shows concern for this issue.
the subject of militarization of media and human consciousness are interesting indeed. The documentary Militainment covers some aspects of this.
As for this being common knowledge, about weapons in space, i would disagree to the extent that I do work on the streets talking to the public about these issues and the majority i speak to are completely unaware.
Thank you for your feedback, and taking the time to read my work.

I think Chomsky has used "total ownership of space". Well, full spectrum dominance or property rights is pretty much semantics. Maybe privatization of space would do as well.
As European I'd like to see world governed by international law and co-operation such as UN, not hegemony. Shouldn't there be something on these ideas. Like freedom, democracy and such. Earlier also US was fond of these and liked to develop UN and international law.
Maybe these are not popular ideas in the US nowadays, but I suppose 90% of world population are not too keen on US hegemony. It seems self evident that there will be race and rivals if US becomes too dominant. Right now total hegemony looks like faraway goal, not reality.
You could write more about existing rivals like Galileo (European GPS) and rationale behind it. Don't ask me why EU likes to have it's own GPS system (in co-operation with China).
Of course there should be at least some hints about Obama administration's position if you continue to work with the paper.
Anyway, nice peace of work. Space is intresting part of global power politics. It should be left demilitarized and open to all like agreed earlier.

The reason i did not focus on the UN as an alternative to US hegemony is largely because I am an anarchist at heart and am not a big fan of the UN.
The European space effort , as well as China's, is of great interest to me and I have been data gathering on this as fuel for a second piece of work looking at the obama admins actions with regard to FSD also.
Thank you for your comments, they are very helpfull for me.
