First came the investigation into Donald Trump’s campaign, now there are demands for an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the allegations against President Obama. The things Congress spends our tax dollars on point to the corrupt core of American democracy. This is the result of a two-party system which operates under the misguided belief that money is speech.
Chris Hedges is one of the most thought provoking socio-political American writers in modern times. His social criticisms are what I think are missing in church sermons. His father was a minister, and it’s obvious his father’s delivery has had an effect, let alone the impact of his higher moral compass.
In this keynote speech delivered this past March in Vancouver, British Columbia, after an event titled “After Trump and Pussy Cats”, Hedges predicts the outcome of the Trump presidency, and the continued decay of American society as a result of the hollowed-out core of American democracy.
