American Fascists, Chris Hedges on The Hour (CBC)

Chris Hedges’s comprehensive  understanding of fascism today involves Umberto Eco’s semiotics, a reading of somatic and psychic phenomena that are the energy driving people who fall into the ‘slough of despond’ (swamp of despair). May I also recommend Susan Sontag’s classic and great essay, “Fascinating Fascism” from Against Interpretation, Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller, Simone Weil’s essay on The Iliad, Hannah Arendt’s writings on violence, the work of Rosa Luxemburg, and the many, many poetries that steady us in our unending freedom work. ~ yours truly, df

The site is currently being rebuilt with six new skyscrapers and a memorial to the casualties of the attacks.
