Chris Hedges: March to Nowhere – Chris Hedges’ Columns – Truthdig

There was no war cry against Wall Street and the purveyors of death in the defense and health industry. There was no acknowledgement that unfettered capitalism and globalization are killing our ecosystem and creating a worldwide system of neo-feudalism. There was no acceptance that the corporate state must be dismantled if we are to save ourselves. Any effective resistance must begin with a condemnation of our political elite and liberal institutions, including the press, the universities, labor, the arts, religious institutions and the Democratic Party, for selling us out. But the speakers on the mall in Washington would not go there. And I suspect, for this reason, the Americans who are hurting most found nothing they said of interest.

Kimberly writes: Thanks, Ian, for finding that powerful article. Here are some of my reflections on it:

I wanted to underscore an excerpt from above. This part shows the difference between “playing” at being against the war, and “playing” at coalitions and event planning, instead of being a radical. A radical understands the depths of the problems with our institutions and challenges those institutions, instead of using those flawed and guilty institutions for a bankroll, sugar daddy, or playing field.
