Chris Hedges
Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt

Chris Hedges, Pulitzer Prize winning correspondent set out to look at those areas in America that have been offered up for exploitation in the name of profit, progress, & technologicaladvancement, to show what life looks like in places where the marketplace rules without constraints, where human beings and the natural world are used and then discarded to maximize profit - the result, Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt.

Hedges talks about the western plains, where Native Americans were sacrificed in the race for land and empire. He then travels to the old manufacturing centers, and the coal fields that fueled the industrial revolution, but now lie depleted and in decay and then looks at the
slave-like conditions of immigrant farm workers.

Hedge's talks about the people at the bottom of the American economy and argues that without profound change poverty will deepen and flood the nation. He then talks reversal and remedy, how to bring people out in protest, and rebuilding the kind of movements that protect us, such as Occupy, where a new generation revolted against the corporate state of by and for the 1%, that bequeathed to us an economic, political, cultural and environmental catastrophe.
