Chris Hedges on the revolution
See this Salon interview. It's already started and there's no telling whether it will be a progressive or regressive populist revolt. Sanders and Trump are at the forefront of both of those options. It's obvious the old system has broken for all but a very few and we're just not going to take it anymore. Hedges says that the revolution needs a narrative to ground and guide it if it is to garner any motive power. Again, the Sanders camp is elucidating one as is the Trump camp. As to which will ultimately triumph is debatable.
