“You can’t sustain a democracy in an oligarchic state. The writers on Athenian democracy understood that 2000 years ago,” says Chris Hedges, whose new book The World As It Is: Dispatches on the Myth of Human Progress explores the problems of a crumbling empire, inside and out.

Chris joins Laura in studio for a conversation about the death of Bin Laden and the continuing concern over terrorism, the end of empathy in the U.S., and what avenues are left for progressives to fight back.  “The elites are not going to help us,” he warns, “We’re going to have to help ourselves.”
