You say you want a revolution? Chris Hedges has his eye on radical change

Author and journalist Chris Hedges is a radical by U.S. standards. He believes our system of government is so compromised by corporate influence that nothing short of revolution and corporate overthrow can fix it. His suggestions include nationalization of banks and utilities.

Hedges is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and prolific author. His most recent book is “Wages of Rebellion: The Moral Imperative of Revolt.” Hedges spoke as part of a Town Hall Seattle program at Seattle University’s Campion Ballroom on April 25. Anna Tatistcheff recorded his talk.
