What did you like best about this story?
He was able to contextualize a great deal of the horrors of corporate capitalism and the inverted totalitarianism that leads to exploitation of the planet's resources until exhaustion or collapse.
Which scene was your favorite?
When he was able to explain how the wealthy live in a parallel universe to the rest of society, and frequently lack the empathy or moral capacity to do anything but expand their greed and exploit the planet's resources.
What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?
The roots of revolution and how meaningful change only comes via movements outside of the traditional power structure. When highly educated and un/under-employed youth are able to communicate the complexity of power structure and build a collective consciousness that can take on corporate power change will slowly occur in punctuated moments.
Any additional comments?
A great book and a powerful inspiriing update on what can be done to save the planet from complete exploitation leading to exhaustion or collapse.

Chris Hedges writes and speaks with both heart and intellect. He is a trustworthy guide through the confusion and chaos of US politics. He has borne witness to many wars and the corruption of the deep state and finds so many ways to communicate and serve society with integrity. Read this book or listen to this audio version - it will inspire you in these difficult times.

The distinguished journalist Chris Hedges presents his thinking here in an extended question and answer session. Covering his own life, personal & professional as well as the state of the USA, this is a great introduction to his convictions, opinions & insight. Since he is such an eloquent & incisive speaker, 4 hours is enough to cover a great many topics, including the mainstream media, other journalists good & bad, the role of wealthy elites, revolutions, the military, Hollywood, politics, protest movements, mass incarceration in the USA and much more. In short, if you want to quickly & easily realise a better understanding of whats going on in America & what role the US is playing worldwide then this is the ideal introduction.
