The best part (the second half) of a fiery and brilliant speech by journalist, essayist, activist, and prophet Chris Hedges.

Hedges argues that sadism defines every aspect of American life, from the corporate-controlled popular culture to the politics to--especially--the harsh neoliberal-capitalist economic system. The interlocking systems all oppress the huge majority of Americans for the benefit of a tiny elite.

Both political parties, including Mr. Biden, serve the elite and promote the oppression of the rest of us--destroying the environment in the process.

(Continued under "Credits"... )
The great necessity now, argues Hedges, is intelligent, coordinated, widespread rebellion by the oppressed 99%. Numerous similar (if smaller) popular rebellions occurred in America in the past, and several were successful in producing lasting change.

Hedges spoke in Troy, New York, on June 27, 2021. The Sanctuary for Independent Media ( https://www.mediasanctuary.org ) produced a video recording of the event, from which this program's audio has been extracted. Many thanks to them.

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