    • Synopsis
    • The War on Democracy demonstrates the brutal reality of the Bush notion of `spreading democracy`; that in fact Bush`s America is conducting a war on democracy, and that true popular democracy is now more likely to be found in countries such as Venezuela and Bolivia.John Pilger conducts an exclusive interview `on the road` with President Hugo Chavez, who has long abandoned Western interviews. He also goes to the United States and in some remarkable interviews, speaks exclusively to Duane Clarridge, who ran the CIA`s war in Latin America in the 1980s. This reveals more about US policy than all the statements and postures of recent times; it also says that what happened in Latin America is a metaphor for how the world is being `ordered`.The archivist for The War on Democracy is Carl Deal, who was Michael Moore`s archivist on `Fahrenheit 911` and `Bowling for Columbine`.
