Today's neoliberal imperialism crushes all unfavourable conditions through multiple forms of oppression to ensure the creation of a world in its own image. The systemic and structural oppression birthed by neoliberal imperialism, once again, reproduces and implements colonialism-armed robbery on a global scale. The difference between the old form and the new form is the scale of destruction and the overt use of Weapons of Mass Destruction. Hence the militarization of the globe is a natural outcome. In this book, Professor Tatah Mentan argues that United Fruit Company, for instance, could not have flourished without the strong support of the Marines, the U.S. State Department and all of its resources. In fact, the French, the German, the British and the Belgian financiers could not have been able to suck the blood out of their colonies without their legionnaires, soldiers, mercenaries, preachers, merchants and generals. Specifically, the Western colonial empires in the nineteenth century presented their penetration, pillage, and rape of Africa, Asia, and Latin America as modernization and tutelage, aided by the ideology of "survival of the fittest." This conceit pervaded the entire Western bourgeois social science, educational and religious institutions. And today, there is the same clear symbiotic relationship between business and the military. Empirical realities demonstrate that companies like Microsoft could not enjoy its overwhelming prosperity without having the strong military that America has. This is precisely why neoliberal imperialism operates alongside oppressive militarism, war and dictatorship and must be disrupted to liberate mankind from its death-grip.
