The Real News Network has the second part of a series in the video Credibility of the Ruling Elite is Being Shredded – Chris Hedges on Reality Asserts Itself pt2.
On RAI with Paul Jay, Chris Hedges says that while people are disgusted with the centers of power, unless there is a constructive alternative, any eruption will be nihilistic and could be fascist
At 2:37 of the video, there is a picture with a caption
Alexander Berkman in 1919 on the eve of his deportation from the US
Having started to read the book Death of the Liberal Class by Chris Hedges, I am wondering how it came to pass that my maternal grandfather was not deported from this country before he had a chance to even start his family here. “Chapter III – Dismantling the Liberal Class” is quite startling. The extent to which government and 1% supported propaganda and intimidation has played a role in shaping us since prior to WW I is really eye opening.
I covered the first part of The Real News Network series in the previous post The Pathology of the Rich – Chris Hedges on Reality Asserts Itself pt1.
