Ep. 32: Chris Hedges Warns That Impeaching Donald Trump Will Not Save America's Dying Empire

Chris Hedges is the author of numerous award-winning and bestselling books including "Empire of Illusion: The End of Literacy and the Triumph of Spectacle," "Death of a Liberal Class," "War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning," "American Fascists: The Christian Right and the War on America" and "Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt." His newest book is "America: The Farewell Tour."

Hedges explains how Trumpism, white right-wing Christian Evangelicals, white supremacists and other right-wing groups are the types of death cults which come into existence when a society is in decline and crisis. He also highlights how Trump’s impeachment is more evidence of a criminal plutocratic class in America and how the “one percent” are engaged in legal theft against the American people.

And Chris Hedges warns that the Democrats’ discussions of a guaranteed minimum income and other “progressive” reforms will in practice only serve the interests of the corporatocracy and not create real systemic change.
