In his book Imperialism, Lenin remarked: “The concentration of production; the monopolies arising therefrom; the merging or coalescence of the banks with industry – such is the history of the rise of finance capital and such is the content of that concept”.

Academic institutions in the United States and other First World countries overwhelmingly support the capitalist-imperialist system. This article from RT demonstrates how so-called scientific fields like psychiatry are not neutral. Instead they are studied specifically for the purpose of maintaining class rule.
