Journalist CHRIS HEDGES traces the rise of the Corporate State, the destruction of democracy, and the corporate plunder of society. And (in Part 2) he surveys successful examples of nonviolent popular rebellion.

This week he discusses how corporations subverted democracy in the US since 1914. And he takes us to some of America's "sacrifice zones"--areas devastated by unrestrained corporate plunder. (Continued under "Credits"...)
He concludes with a scathing critique of the Democratic Party for selling out the people to the corporations.

With a new (2020) introduction by KD.

Hedges spoke in Seattle on June 29, 2011. His 2011 book is titled, "Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt" (with illustrations byJoe Sacco). Original audio--slightly condensed by KD--courtesy of Mike McCormick, "Mind Over Matters." Hedges' speech was broadcast on New World Notes in September 2012 (#236-237).

"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "very noses") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
