Chris Hedges on Oligarchy and the Global Collapse





Published on Apr 30, 2012 by munderlarkst

Chris Hedges: "I think if the Occupy movement organizes around raising the minimum wage...to $10 an hour...it can galvanize around an issue. In order to keep labor with it, it has to latch onto issues such as the raising the minimum wage that will bring labor out into the street and keep it as the vanguard movement of the mainstream. Whether it can do that or not I don't know. We'll have to see." -- 4/30/12 in interview on RT.com.

2. Umm, Chris Hedges would be saying the same thing if he were on MSNBC, Democracy Now! or PBS.


His commentary isn't "RT" commentary. He was a guest on RT.

3. Chris I have no problem with. RT I have huge problems with ....

the west doesn't have a clue about what to do except keep up pressure from the UN and to encourage the Arab League to engage Assad. The Russians would like everybody to butt out and let Assad handle it. That has been the constant RT line on Syria from the start. They are using Hedges well founded (in my opinion) suggestion that interfering by active "regime change" is a very bad idea as represented by Iraq and Afghanistan and the muddled actions the US and NATO used to try to topple Gaddafi, to further the Russian agenda. Which is to give Assad a free hand at putting down a "criminals and terrorists" rebellion.
