Abstract:

Chris Hedges on the most taboo topics in America, with David Talbot. The War on Terror is a profitable crusade against convenient enemies. #x93;Muslim rage" is an understandable response to US state terror. Rising oligarchy in America has made democracy a sham and turned the electoral process into an increasingly absurd circus. Police violence against minorities is part of a systematic effort to crush social discontent. Proliferating violence against women's health clinics is part of the war on women's bodies. Freedom of speech is an illusion, with government agencies and corporate media dictating.
