Again, there is a missing component, which is any discussion of the effect of the mega-banks, which appear to be at the pinnacle of the creation of the “descent”. Keep that in mind if you locate and view the video. It does seem that Chris Hedges has a large gap in his understanding of what drives the “descent” of a well organized and prosperous society. While Glass-Steagall is mentioned by him, it is more in passing than as a major component of the descent. His breadth of knowledge could certainly be expanded if he took the time to read G. Edward Griffin’s book about the Fed.
It is more than a little bit weird that this component of the descent is missed, not only by Hedges, but by most of the mass media. The only conclusion that can be taken from this is that there is some control over both Hedges and the mass media by corporate interests and the banksters. Note that Hedges says that he has spent his career away from “the centers of power”, which on this end means the central banks. That is the conundrum for the rest of us that those in leadership positions, of one sort or another, do not have the courage that others show, many times out of ignorance, at the risk of life and limb.
Align the statements of Chris Savvinidis (Captain Midnite), of Occupy Wall Street, with the statements of Hedges, and you will see how completely Hedges avoids mention of the Fed. That seems to be the hallmark of all the “important” personages when placed aside one another in contrast with an “average” individual stating their disdain for the morass we find ourselves sinking into with the mounting corporate and bankster greed, stealing from our livelihoods by condoning a system of fiat money. Hedges emphasizes his theological background, but it seems he forgot, or rather would not mention, the anger Christ displayed with the money changers.
I am tired and disappointed of all that is happening in America, not only in the financial world but also in societal values. Had a lot of optimism and high regard for this country. That has all disappeared.
Want to move away to some better place with nicer people.
