30-minute weekly radio program for November 30, 2010. The poor, the working class, and at last (surprise!) the middle class have all been shafted by the "liberal" mainstream institutions that once--at least to an extent--looked out for their interests. CHRIS HEDGES identifies a half-dozen such institutions that have by now said, "If you can't beat 'em [the plutocrats], serve 'em!" To Hedges, the worst offenders are the liberal Christian Church, the media, and--worst of all--the Democratic Party.

This program focuses on the Democratic Party.

We'll hear parts of a fine talk by Hedges and some ruminations by me, and we'll read aloud a nice essay by Philadelphia journalist DAVE LINDORFF. Lindorff focuses on the perfidy of the Obama administration in particular. Continuity we can believe in!

Other audio included: the "I'm as mad as hell" rant by "Howard Beale" (from the movie "Network") & 2 songs by Fred Eaglesmith.

Chris Hedges spoke on "The Death of the Liberal Class" at the Sanctuary for Independent Media, Troy, NY, October 15, 2010. Our audio of Hedges is taken from the video released by Sanctuary TV (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bYCvSntOI5s).
