Chris Hedges on What it Takes to be a Rebel in Modern Times - YouTube
If you care about the truth you eventually run into problems as the journalist who usually manipulates facts for a living. // neoliberalism sold to us through lies and manipulated facts. // 2/3rds of the country in poverty. // mania for hope is a political pacifier even for the liberals, keeping people hopeful - keeps people complacent. // moral imperative for civil disobedience. // but do not use the word hope! // game is fixed. // rebellion led by day class intellectuals. that band together with the underclass. // if you have whole-sale surveillance, you can't have investigative journalism // it's about ratings and money, they don't do journalism. << corporate media. // dismantling BBC by tories is a power play by tories (power elite) // &! - Most of the information we spread online is quantifiably “bullshit” - The internet encourages the spread of information that is emotionally resonant but factually untrue
