A powerful new talk by Progressive journalist/essayist Chris Hedges. Hedges argues that the ruling elite--anticipating another collapse of the financial system they control--is fighting to suppress all Progressive critiques of the system.

A major battlefield in that war is the Internet. The elite just destroyed Net Neutrality. Now they're reprogramming the search engines to ignore left-of-center viewpoints.

Hedges connects these ominous turns with other events, including the rise of the Religious Right. The overall goal is to control the populace by suppressing all good explanations of what is happening ... and who is responsible.

Introduction by KD.

Hedges spoke at the Left Forum, in New York City, on June 3, 2018. For the audio recording of Hedges, many thanks to Wilton Vought ( and a YouTube channel: Other Voices, Other Choices).
