  1. Spot on, bravo!

    Chris Hedges demonstrates here that enviable “Socratic” gift of reflexively concentrating crucial discourse. Capitalism, collectivism, monarchism, Marxism ~ they are merely words, only isms.

    He is so correct in this conversation when he gets right to the heart of the implicit exploitation that Marx exposed, namely that if you don’t serve the system, you simply won’t have a job. You don’t need to be a “communist” to grasp that first principle!

    In the States you’re working for “the Company.” In Europe, it’s the old establishment, the Mufti Mafia.

    There’s no such thing as a free market. We need fair markets.

    I’m going straight to Part 2…
