Chris Hedges “Brace Yourself! The American Empire Is Over” (Video Lecture)

And the descent is going to be horrifying.

 

Editor’s Note: Although the empire managers may not know it or accept it (certainly not accept it!), the American hegemon, the world’s chief defender of inequality, is heading for an implosion caused by the very structural forces and dynamic that one day assisted its rise. The capitalist system, the engine for the global empire, has reached a point of wholesale dysfunction. And NONE of the crises besetting it can be fixed by measures or policies drawn from within the capitalist playbook. What’s more, the systemic disease—very advanced at this point—is magnified by the planetary disease: humanity in its corruption and folly has finally assaulted and is killing the biosphere, and literally all that lives. As such, this is without a doubt the first ecopolitical crisis in history, and the prospects for remedial action are not good.

In this presentation, Chris Hedges addresses many of the problems we confront. We can only hope that the Occupy people are listening. —PG
