Chris Hedges - Live in Los Angeles / Part Two

A film by Michael Sosebee

submitted by Gabrielle Price 

On June 28, 2012 Chris Hedges gave an historic talk to a sold-out audience at the Immanuel Presbyterian Church, in Los Angeles, California.  In part two, Chris talks about his new book collaboration with graphic artist Joe Sacco, "Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt".  Chris shares how he and Joe traveled to the most depressed pockets of the United States to combine narrative nonfiction with graphic art.  From the streets of Camden, New Jersey, the devastated coal fields of West Virginia, the Lakota reservation of Pine Ridge, South Dakota, Chris discusses the view of existence when the marketplace rules and the outcome of corporate capitalism when it is unregulated and unfettered.

A moving discussion which questions a corporate-created society that has lost the capacity for the sacred.

Don't Miss Part One

  1. Chris Hedges gets it right but I wonder (often aloud) can our present civilization based on make-believe grow up to become a mature and responsible society? Personally I don't have a lot of faith in that possibility. The corporate paymasters have done too good a job. The bottleneck where humans disappear in great numbers still appears to be a long way off. In the meantime we're in the "doldrums" where nothing moves in either direction. ~ Mike Sosebee
