This is rather long, and I normally do not watch such long speeches (45 min). But this one was really, really worth it. I'd be really interested in what some of you guys have to say on it (should you set the time aside to listen). It is by Chris Hedges, and it discusses the death of Liberalism in the United States, and what this means. You may not agree with everything he says (in principle), but it sure makes us think. Hedges is very much a liberal, and perhaps even socialist.

He gives a thumbnail sketch of Liberalism over some years...
But with the recent re-election of Odumbo, his premise of, "death of the Liberal class" is totally invalid.
Remember how after the 2010 mid-term elections some were touting "death of the Democrats... gone forever"?
What say those folks now? I think Liberalism/Progressive-ism/Marxism/Communism is the future of America.
The "Parasite Class" now outnumbers the "Capitalist Class", and there is no turning back.
The Founders would be mortified what the greedy and stupid have done to their/our country.
