Chris Hedges with David Talbot: "Unspeakable: On the Most Forbidden Topics in America"
Wednesday, October 19, 2016
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
King Middle School, 1781 Rose Street, Berkeley free parking
Hedges speaks clearly with author David Talbot (The Devil's Chessboard) about the most pressing issues facing us. He tackles the rise of a fascist right in support of Donald Trump, which advocates xenophobia and violence in a push for American totalitarianism. He rails against …establishment elites on both sides of the aisle. He tears into the contemporary glamorization of the military and the unchecked, unchallenged hawkishness that defines contemporary American foreign policy. Moreover, he shows his support for contemporary revolts against this twisted order—such as Black Lives Matter—that represent Americans refusing to take the destruction of their country lying down.
