Chris Hedges: Chris Hedges on Fascism, Civil Unrest, and the Police State

In this clip from the Waking Up With Julianna Forlano show, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and best-selling author, Chris Hedges, discusses how corporate fascism has affected the Coronavirus pandemic, how “American Democracy is a failed Democracy”, how technology (internet/phones/social media) has helped lead to civil unrest and a police state, and more.

You may know Chris from reading one of his best-selling books including American Fascists: The Christian Right and the War On America; Empire of Illusion: The End of Literacy and the Triumph of Spectacle; War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning; Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt; and Death of the Liberal Class. Or his weekly interview show On Contact where he interviews “dissident voices” currently missing from the mainstream media, the black sheep of the establishment, leading to discussions that are not easy to find.

Chris is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, a New York Times best-selling author, a professor in the college degree program offered to New Jersey state prisoners by Rutgers UniversiFty, and an ordained Presbyterian minister.
