Chris Hedges will present a new talk examining the cultural and social forces that have given rise to extremism in the United States. He will explore the myriad of factors that led to the proliferation of neofascist militias, extremist organizations, demagogic leaders, vast social divides defined by hate, a hyper nationalism and virulent racism as well as a mass media that has descended into burlesque and fans the flames of social disintegration.

And in his own words, “Don’t ever get discouraged!”
