Maria Cernat, one of the hosts of “On the Barricades,” recorded a solo commentary. She discusses Lindsey O’Rourke’s study on the use of regime change as a tool for the US to advance its interests around the globe, based on data from the Cold War period. The book not only shows that the documents support the critics of the US administration. Maria discusses how the evidence confirms the following observation of hers: that the pressure of such US attempts to implement covert regime change “democratically”, for example via civil society and influence on the intellectual environment of the country, actually creates an opposition– authoritarian leaders who protect themselves with a powerful security apparatus. This dynamic is a recipe for global stagnation, says Maria.
