Hedges' Empire of Illusion

There is nothing I can say that will add to Chris Hedges' profound understanding of our current situation as an empire in decline. Hedges' unveiling of this corporate regime in his book, "Empire of Illusion", should be required reading in all institutions of learning. But we know that will not happen as long as corporate America is supporting an educational system built around the job market rather than critical thinking. So as autonomous individuals, it is our responsibility to seek out the truth for ourselves.

"It is time for all of us to step out of the mainstream — to give up on the democratic party which has betrayed us, and in particular betrayed the working class — and fight for what is left of our anemic democracy." — Chris Hedges
