It is very rare that I hear somebody so thoroughly correct. Chris Hedges nails every subject, every time, with a breadth and exactitude few people can touch.
For example. this is Chris Hedges on the Tea Party movement:
Chris Hedges on intelligent design:
Chris Hedges on surveillance and propaganda:
Chris Hedges even criticizes education deform in New York City (the video starts with a very good speech by Cliftonia Johnson of DC37, who was laid off with hundreds of other school aides back in October. Chris’ part starts at 3:27)
His best videos are by far his lectures like “Death of the Liberal Class” and “How Corporations Destroyed American Democracy”. He has written many books and was a correspondent for the New York Times in the Middle East.
A brilliant person who would get my vote if he ever ran for office, which is not likely. He graduated from Harvard Divinity School and is the son of a minister, but has been a reporter and activist most of his life.
