CHRIS HEDGES traces the rise of the Corporate State, the destruction of democracy, and the corporate plunder of society. And he surveys successful examples of nonviolent popular rebellion.
This week he discusses the Obama Administration's assault on civil liberties--a way of suppressing both dissent and popular resistance to corporate plunder, he believes. He ends with examples of nonviolent popular resistance toppling oppressive systems--for instance in East Germany and Czechoslovakia.
Hedges spoke in Seattle on June 29, 2011. Our installment is adapted from the full talk, broadcast by Mike McCormick on "Mind Over Matters" (http://www.radio4all.net/index.php/program/61508). Thanks yet again to Mike.
