The Agenda with Steve Paikin interviews journalist Chris Hedges

Book: The Collapse of the American Empire? – By Chris Hedges

Published on Sep 12, 2018

The Agenda welcomes Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges, who over the past decade and a half has made his name as a columnist, activist and author. He’s been a vociferous public critic of presidents on both sides of the American political spectrum.

His latest book, ‘America, the Farewell Tour,’ is nothing short of a full-throated throttling of the political, social, and cultural state of his country.

    This Chris Hedges is out of touch with reality. The reality is American, loves America and he knows that we are on the edge of socialism and is attempting to prevent us from swinging to socialism.
    Karl Marx stated that socialism will take over capitalism and socialism is the first step to communism.
    Take if from there, is this where we want to go???
    Mister Hedges, Trump is not a con artist, YOU ARE!

      The world’s number one con artist is Trump. Only a fool or a blind person will have difficulty seeing this.

    A whole generation of idiots, coming from school systems that shaped their minds to accept a load of crap about the benefits of socialism. Someone forgot to remind them, people worked HARD under capitalism to put them in the comfortable position they live in today, allowing them the freedom to sprout such nonsense, and now same hard workers, expected to pay for “Free everything for everyone”. America, did bad things, is doing bad things, will do more bad things, does not out weigh the good it did for the world. I view America like the tough cousin, with a a few bucks, don’t want to hang out out with him, but expect him to have your back, if someone threatens to rob you, or kick you ass, you know, like Canada, today.

    A rather interesting perspective on where America is placed right now. A good listen, IMHO. The Slick 1
