Dandelion Salad

with Chris Hedges

John N. Campbell on Nov. 25, 2021

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and best-selling author, Chris Hedges discusses the defining characteristic of capitalism: exploitation. He explains how capitalism elevates sociopathic values, destroys the environment, degrades human life, and how the internal logic of capitalism ultimately destroys itself.

  11. As might be expected from Chris Hedges, a cogent summary. The cumulative abuses are writ large in the US, and have accelerated dramatically with fatal consequences since the Reagan ‘eighties.’

    That old saw ‘you can’t make an omelette without breaking eggs,’ is a much abused article of ‘pragmatic faith’ in a diseased system, that seems to have forgotten the welfare of the birds.

    Whatever happened to common sense? How can these supreme errors of judgment be corrected, so that ecological reason can prevail?

    Possibly the most innovative and encouraging development I have learned of in recent times, is the “restorative justice” initiative of Deanna van Buren
