3. As I clearly said in the OP, I do not agree with Hedges on all issues at all. But he is right about

 

the Trump Cult. He is also right about our decades-long econonomic and cultural decay exacerbated by vast income inequality through government bought off by corporatism that laid the foundations for Trump to emerge as a cult leader who could ascend to the presidency. I DO NOT agree entirely with his proposed cure for it being mainly grassroots resistance movements. These are often fractured, competing, and people are not in it for the long haul. He continues to tout the Occupy "movement" which was an abject FAILURE that FAILED MISERABLY in organizing in any coherent way for the long haul akin to Women's Suffrage, Civil Rights, Abolition, Labor, etc. You have to organize POLITICALLY, and I also do not agree with him at all in his large criticisms of the Dem Party (though to be fair there are SOME fair criticisms of the Dems, but they are now doing better).
