Chris Hedges: No way within the system to vote against corporate capture of the United States

October 15, 2011 | By | Reply More

Chris Hedges asserts that Americans are seeing through the plutocratic mendacity that currently governs them, and that’s why they are taking to the streets. The Occupy protests we are seeing are not at all like the Tea Party, which is “bankrolled by the most retrograde elements in American society.” What we are now seeing on the streets is genuine, and we need it, given the “continuity” that is apparent from the Administrations of George W. Bush to that of Barack Obama. The commonality of interests against the corporate state is a “unifying force” and we will now see whether we can stand together to take back our country.
