    Listen to the intro of Praise the Sinners by Choking Victim

    What's the purpose of it?

    Capitalism would not collapse if Grenada remained revolutionary

    And Reagan was right

    It wasn't a matter of direct resources that you needed from that country

    He said, "Nutmeg is not the question"

    I mean, that was Grenada's biggest export

    We could get perfectly good nutmeg from Africa

    You don't need Grenada's nutmeg

    So why did they invade Grenada?

    They invaded Grenada because they were serving notice

    To the people of the Caribbean

    And to the people of Latin America, and to the people of the world

    That you cannot drop out of your client-state free-market system

    That if you tried to take an independent source

    And that if you use your land, your labor, your resources

    And your capital, and your markets in a different way

    In a collectivist way

    If you use them to benefit the needs of your people

    Rather than to be milked like a cow for foreign investors

    If you do that

    This is what's going to happen to you

    To prevent it from becoming a Soviet base. Rescuing students was a convenient cover story.
