My friend Mick Wallace stops by to discuss his incredible life and time in European politics. We discuss the issues facing Europe and their relationship to bigger powers such as the US and China. We touch on the imperialist colonialist past of the United States. We also talk about Irish politics and how that plays into the bigger picture of European politics. Mick tells us stories of hitch-hiking through South America and working in factories in New York making Christmas decorations. He also tells us his journey from construction worker to an incredibly successful property owner and the subsequent stock market in 2008 which nearly cleaned him out. Mick is an inspirational voice in global politics and the anti-war movement. This is an incredible conversation with an amazing human being!
