with Chris Hedges

RT America on Sep 7, 2019

Host Chris Hedges talks to Dr. Charles Derber about how the capitalist state uses fear bolstered by racism as a tool to control the people, and through their efforts to abolish civil liberties, crush dissent and extinguish democratic space. Derber is the author of a new book, Moving Beyond Fear: Upending the Security Tales in Capitalism, Fascism and Democracy, with Yale R. Magrass.
