In a brilliant speech, CHRIS HEDGES argues that the class war is real ... that the ordinary people are losing ... that all of society's institutions have betrayed the people and "sold out" to Established Power ... that whatever political and economic justice there has been exists only because ordinary people struggled hard against the elite to create that justice... and that widespread nonviolent rebellion by the people is now essential to prevent disaster.

(Continued in "Credits.")
Part history lesson, part political science, part cultural analysis, and part sermon, Hedges' talk is an intellectual tour-de-force--and also a great listen.

The audio (taken from a videotape available online) was lightly edited for radio by Robin Upton and previously broadcast on his "Unwelcome Guests" program ( Thanks again to Robin. I believe that Hedges delivered this speech in 2011.
