CHRIS HEDGES reflects on capitalism run amok--driving us closer to poverty and destroying the ecosystem. And on the US government, dedicated to furthering the interests of the corporate elite. Fears of popular rebellion led Obama to destroy Americans' civil liberties and spy on every citizen. Since the radical Left has been destroyed--and since the Democrats serve the elite as much as the Republicans do, change from within the system is impossible, thinks Hedges. (Continued under "Notes.")
Thanks to Robin Upton, of Unwelcome Guests, for the audio, which I have edited. http://unwelcomeguests.net. Hedges' words come from a series of interviews with Paul Jay: videos available on The Real News Network online (therealnews.com).
New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "counter") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
What to do? Hedges sees making the elite afraid of the people--through widespread nonviolent resistance and protest--as the only strategy that has a chance of working. A gloomy but intellectually powerful and peruasive talk.
