Chris Hedges is an expert on the history of revolt and social change movements. He has covered many of the major uprisings of the past 40 years as a front-line journalist. Depending on one’s sensibilities, he is certainly not easy to listen to and usually upsets most sides of the political spectrum. But agree and disagree, Hedges is incredibly articulate and thought-provoking. In this interview he educates on the historical consequences of an uneven distribution of wealth: destruction, violence and revolt and what the Occupy movement, with all the usual human blemishes, should be about.
