    Johan Galtung: US Empire Will Collapse and Become a Dictatorship [TURN ON SUBTITLES]

    >>G&E: We are speaking with the renowned founder of Peace and Conflict Studies, Dr. Johan Galtung, author of countless publications, conflict mediator, founder of Transcend International, and the Galtung Institute, consultant to governments, the UN, and so much more.I’d like to cover two central themes today.
