with Chris Hedges

RT America on Dec 12, 2020

On the show this week, Chris Hedges talks to journalist Diana Johnstone about the betrayal of the Left with its historical role as the champion of social justice and peace now replaced with the boutique activism of identify politics, political correctness and what has become known as humanitarian intervention, the justification of US and NATO adventurism and wars on the specious belief it would liberate the women of Afghanistan or the peoples of Iraq.

Diana Johnstone’s memoir is Circle in the Darkness: Memoir of a World Watcher. Johnstone was the European editor of In These Times from 1979 to 1990, and her work has appeared in New Left Review, Counterpunch and Covert Action Quarterly.
