"Hedges insights and opinions—which have been hard-earned over a tumultuous career of covering war and revolution, suffering and liberation—should be part of our national debate."—New York Times Bestselling author David Talbot, from his Introduction
Chris Hedges is an intellectual bomb thrower. The kinds of insights he provides into the troubled state of our democracy cannot be found anywhere else. Like many of our most important thinkers, he has been relegated to the margins because of ideas deemed too radical—or true—for public consumption. What does he think about?
- The Mellons, Rockefellers, Carnegies, and Morgans started out as gangsters,
- Some “war” reporters only report what the US Embassy and the military feed them.
- Spending time in Gaza for a fresh take on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
- Donald Trump
- And more!
Hedges here speaks up about the most pressing issues currently facing our nation. If we are to combat the intellectual and moral decay that have come to grip American life, we must listen to Chris Hedges and the urgent message he brings in this book.
