Chris Hedges argued that American propaganda has done two key things. Through a "bombardment of cultural lies and manipulations," it has erased every progressive movement from the face of the country.
The system has also created a "psychosis of permanent war," Hedges said. Hedges, traces the demise of liberal values in America since World War I and emphasized the importance of social movements in maintaining democracy.
A fantastic and informative video. Well worth watching.
