Chris Hedges on "The Death of the Liberal Class"

Chris Hedges - Death of the Liberal Class (lecture)

The gradual corruption and demise of the liberal class has occurred without much comment. For decades it was a modest curb against the worst excesses of power. Once the pillars of this class, the Democratic Party, the unions, and the liberal church, collapsed, the poor, the working class, and even the middle class no longer had a defender, thus creating a vacuum that is increasingly filled by opportunists and charlatans.

Protesting Austerity Over There (but not over here)

Categories:

A mania for austerity is sweeping through the ruling elites of the Western World. The British Government recently announced large increases in tuition fees paid by university students and extensive cuts in education programs. In response, there have been massive student demonstrations in cities and universities all over Britain. Although the students’ actions were mostly peaceful, the police were not so kind – on some occasions resorting to “kettling” the demonstrators, that is, using cordons of police to block off all exits from a small area, effectively imprisoning people for several hours. The students were not deterred, however, and learned to evade the police blockades.
