This very powerful lecture by Chris Hedges is on YouTube in two parts. If you are a fan of Barack Obama, or Bill or Hillary Clinton. I advise you not to watch this lecture. You will either deny everything you hear, or it might be dangerous to your mental health.

Revolutions come in waves and cycles. We are again riding the crest of a revolutionary epic, much like 1848 or 1917, from the Arab Spring to movements against austerity in Greece to the Occupy movement. In Wages of Rebellion, Chris Hedges—who has chronicled the malaise and sickness of a society in terminal moral decline in his books Empire of Illusion and Death of the Liberal Class—investigates what social and psychological factors cause revolution, rebellion, and resistance.
