    Long, but a worthwhile read:


    For the whole thing: Chris Hedges: The World Liberal Opportunists Made - Chris Hedges' Columns - Truthdig

    Yeah.

    Hedges is about as good as modern journalists get.

    The upcoming electoral win of a bunch of crazy right-wing kooks has little to do with a resurgence of the right-wing and so much to do with the fact that there no longer exists powerful liberal institutions or individuals in this country, they have let down their followers and their country, and in their place we have merely the privileged who seek to maintain the status quo using prettier language and earn only the enmity of those out of power who suffer as a result of their abandonment.
