Chris Hedges discussing "Empire of Illusion." Please see my post on his important work.
I totally disagree with Hedges about how we fix this problem, and especially his rejection of President Obama. But that does not dampen my respect for his analysis of the problem we face as a culture. But that's what makes Liberals different from conservatives. We can respect the diversity of opinions within our ranks, and not oversimplify either problems or solutions.
This takes a little bit to warm up.. but give it time. Roll with it.
