Wages of Rebellion

 

Sponsored by The Nation Institute and The New School (http://www.newschool.edu), Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and acclaimed author Chris Hedges sits down for a one-to-one interview with public intellectual, academic and activist Cornel West.

We are riding the crest of a revolutionary epic: from the historic referendum against austerity in Greece to #BlackLivesMatter and the Fight for $15. In his new book, Wages of Rebellion, Chris Hedges—who has long chronicled the malaise of a society in moral decline — investigates what social and psychological factors cause revolution, rebellion, and resistance. In what will be a timely and thought-provoking conversation, Cornel West will engage Hedges’ on his message that popular uprisings in the United States and around the world are inevitable in the face of environmental destruction and wealth polarization and together discuss the moral imperative of revolt.

Location: The Auditorium at 66 West 12th Street, Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall

exceptional testifying by Hedges!!!! makes me appreciate him all the more...

I have listened to a lot of good people over the last 60 years and I like Hedges very much. My comment is this world is going backwards we have a lot less freedoms now than when I was a young man in the 50`s and 40% of working class people are a lot worse off now than then. What I am really saying is how long will the poor majority have to wear the chains of the capitalist corporations minority before they completly destroy this planet and humanity with it.
