Building Bridges: Your Community & Labor Report
                                    National Edition
             Produced by Mimi Rosenberg & Ken Nash
                                  *******
Chris Hedges
Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt  

Chris Hedges, Pulitzer Prize winning correspondent  set out to look at
those areas in America that have been offered up for exploitation in the
name of profit, progress, and technological advancement, to show what
life looks like in places where the marketplace rules without constraints,
where human beings and the natural world are used and then discarded
to maximize profit – the result, Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt.

Hedges talks about the western plains, where Native Americans were
sacrificed in the  race for land and empire.  He then travels to the old
manufacturing centers, and the coal fields that fueled the industrial
revolution, but now lie depleted and in decay and then looks at the
slave-like conditions of immigrant farm workers.  

Hedge's talks about the people at the bottom of the American economy
and argues that without profound change poverty will deepen and flood
the nation.  He then talks reversal and remedy, how to bring people out
in protest, and rebuilding the kind of movements that protect us, such as
Occupy, where a new generation revolted against the corporate state of
by and for the 1%, that bequeathed to us an economic, political, cultural
and environmental catastrophe.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:
Are you sure you want to remove this diary from your hotlist?
Are you sure you want to remove your recommendation? You can only recommend a diary once, so you will not be able to re-recommend it afterwards.

    Days of Destruction Days of Revolt and have just gotten into the first part about Native Americans.  It is heart-breaking reading but at the same time compelling.  Arthur Cutten of Jesse's American Cafe Blog (an econ blog) has introduced his readers to Chris Hedges----that's what got me to buy this book.  He's a remarkable person and I can't wait to read this book in its entirety.  I'll most definitely check out your radio programs.  Thanks for letting us know you're out there.

    We can have democracy in this country, or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can't have both. Louis D. Brandeis
