with Chris Hedges

Liza Featherstone in Divining Desire: Focus Groups & the Culture of Consultation shares with journalist Chris Hedges how advertising techniques developed by early Viennese intellectual elites were adapted and coopted by US elites to control politics, consumption and opinion.

  3. Today I watched Hedges interview with Lisa Featherstone- her book sync’s very well with information I learned years ago at John’s Hopkins University, and again years later at Antioch College…and taking Social Psychology whilst studying Urban planning. Well worth investigating and checking out- my sense is it gives one a clear-sight view of what is really behind the scenes in the world we live in. Her new book is just out. Thank you and hope you have time to enjoy this and be rewarded with fresh perspectives… cheers.
