0The early 21st Century is destined to be remembered as one of the greatest periods of upheaval in the history of Western Civilization 窶" a time when the economies of most of the developed nations collapsed under the weight of their unsustainable debt burdens. At the epicenter of the turmoil lurks a centuries-old system of economic hegemony which we refer to as the Phoenix Empire.* The European Union and the United States are the current and perhaps final manifestations of this hegemony.
The mission of PEN is to shed light upon the history, strategy, and tactics of the Phoenix Empire. We track and report news stories of relevance to this mission via the Internet and a network of international correspondents who are on the "front lines" of the growing popular opposition to the Phoenix Empire and its satellite nations.
