Beschreibung

The Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist discusses America’s most taboo topics in a no-holds-barred extended interview with Salon founder David Talbot. 
 
Chris Hedges has been telling truth to (and against) power since his earliest days as a radical journalist. An intellectual heir to heroes such as Thomas Paine and Noam Chomsky, he continues to confront American empire in the most incisive, challenging ways.
 
In Unspeakable, Hedges and Salon founder David Talbot discuss the most pressing issues that face our nation. He tackles the rise of a fascist right in support of Donald Trump; the false posturing of inclusivity from establishment elites on both sides of the aisle; politicians who continue to implement policies that widen income inequality; the contemporary glamorization of the military and the unchallenged hawkishness of contemporary American foreign policy; and many other topics.
 
Hedges also discusses a path forward, underscoring the necessity of protest movements—such as Black Lives Matter—that represent Americans refusing to take the destruction of their country lying down. If we are to combat the intellectual and moral decay that have taken hold of American life, we must listen to the urgent messages raised in this book.
