7. A wonderful article...

...I am liking Chris Hedges more and more.

The bottom line is the capitalist imperatives of unlimited growth and unlimited consumption are killing us. The side effects of capitalism include killing the arts and artistic impulses, i.e. killing our souls.

Maybe it sounds extreme. I think what's happening right now is extreme, so it's refreshing to read a well-reasoned essay that acknowledges that reality.
