Chris Hedges: The Absurdity of American Empire

Published on Sep 11, 2012 by
What happens when you force communities, families and entire ecosystems to kneel before the dictates of the marketplace? You get what Chris Hedges, co-author with Joe Sacco of Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt, calls "sacrifice zones." From Appalachia to North Dakota to Camden, New Jersey, these zones, ravaged by the excesses of capitalism, prefigure our collective future.

What a coincidence, the past 10 days I have been reading some of his stuff & watching a few youtubes of his speeches. He writes on http://www.truthdig.com/

Although, I am on the other side of the political spectrum from him, he does understand the problem of corporations & their bedmates, our representatives. It does not matter what political party is in office. He articulates it in an intelligent and crystal clear manner.

Here is another 2+ hour long interview with him. Listen and Learn. All others, tune into the Honey BooBoo marathon.
