According to Chris Hedges, liberal institutions are to blame for the downward spiral of the American political system. In his Big Thinkinglecture at Congress 2012, he argues that the liberal class—the press, universities, liberal religious institutions, labour unions and the Democratic Party—have forsaken their core values and sold out to corporate interests. Chris Hedges was a foreign correspondent for nearly two decades for The New York Times, The Dallas Morning News, The Christian Science Monitorand National Public Radio, and the author of such books as War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning (2002), American Fascists (2007), I Don’t Believe in Atheists (2008) and Empire of Illusion(2009). He is a senior fellow at The Nation Institute and has taught at Columbia University, New York University and Princeton University.

Amid all of the outrage and celebrations, only a few are pointing out the laziness of rehashing the same old stories with ‘diversified’ casts in blatant attempts to make bag-loads of money pandering to more varied demographics – all without having to get the creative juices flowing to come up with entirely new characters and storylines.

Hollywood celebs make another push to keep the Russiagate hoax alive. Now it’s a live table-read of the Mueller report. (Yawn)
P. GREANVILLE—Democrat-instilled Groupthink in an industry where sanctimonious peer pressure is enormous is showing its malignant fruits once again, as a bunch of otherwise distinguished actors prove that acting brilliantly on the sound stage and being truly smart, not to mention politically intelligent, are two very different things. With Trump menacing Iran with “obliteration”, these liberals still do not see the need to tackle Trump from the left, opposing loudly his push to war and international blackmail, along with economic war—harmlessly described as “sanctions”—all underscored by blatant and crude imperialist threats across the globe.

PHILLIP KELL—You ask why Americans are so dumbstruck ? Because they think Hollywood actors are “nice rich folks” and know best, Russia-gate is a distraction! Look at your wars! And your goddamn warmongering pricks who walk in broad daylight without as much as being in chains and bloody prison for the murder of millions! Look at your social groups that are ruining and causing war between the genders for a sick corporate coup of profiteering on it. Look at the next person right next to you and see how the richest country on earth ignores its lower classes because of either colour or background..
