Part 2 of the hard-hitting speech by journalist/essayist Chris Hedges. It's about the corruption of "the System," the ever-increasing power of "the one percent," the betrayal of the people by the Democratic and Republican parties, the century-long crackdown on dissent, and our increasingly meaningless national politics--in which our nation's real and pressing problems are seldom even mentioned--let alone debated, let alone put to a vote.

(Continued under "Credits.")
(Continued:) Hedges devotes some particular attention to the three leading Presidential candidates of 2016: Clinton, Sanders, and Trump. None of whom advocates the sort of radical change that (to Hedges) is our only hope.

In Part 2, Hedges speaks also about the country's drift towards a police state and about successful nonviolent revolutions. America badly needs such a revolution now, Hedges argues.

With a brief introduction by K.D.
