Lawrence Wilkerson, former Chief of Staff to Colin Powell and holder of many other government positions tells the student audience that the end of Empire is near along with a decline in resources such as oil. With decline the nation call go in one of two directions: 1) with a cooperative blueprint or 2) bloody and ruthless scavenge for natural resources. Shell oil thinks it will go the way of #2. Lawrence Wilkerson also lectures on the empire starting after WWII and that we were forwarned numerous times about what is now the Military-Industrial-Congressional Complex.
